Blayney High School has another crop of champion athletes coming through the ranks, and it’s in a sport that although doesn’t get the limelight often enough, it has a strong history at the school.
Three volleyball teams from the school recently took part in the All Schools State Cup Volleyball in Sydney.
PE head teacher Paul Hanman said that the students played exceptionally well and showed excellent sportsmanship under some tough pressure.
“The under 17’s girls placed sixth and the under 17’s boys second,” he said.
“The standout result of the day was the under 16’s girls who finished first.”
Hanman said that the secret to their success was a fairly intense training regime and a love of the game.
“There’s a lot of training after school with Maureen Dickson, they play it a lot during sport and they also have regular training at lunch time,” he said.
The under 17’s boys and the under 16’s girls will now be heading off to Melbourne in December to compete in the Australian All School championship.
