Volleyballers bring home medal
THE ALDRIDGE State High School Year 8 girls' volleyball team brought home a silver medal from the state titles in Brisbane recently.
The final game was an arm wrestle, with the Aldridge team winning the first set but losing the next two.
“The team was a very young, inexperienced team but they trained hard all season,” Christine Stephensen, the mother of one of the girls, said.
Ms Stephensen attended the event and was impressed with how the girls performed.
“They played teams from Brisbane who are predominantly volleyball schools.
“It was tough going for them. They lost a couple and won a couple.
“They had to win the last three games in a row to make the final and they did.
“They won the first set 25 points to 10 and absolutely blitzed the opposition.
“They lost the second set by 25 points to 14 and lost the final set by two points.
“They should all be so proud of themselves.
“They beat some really strong teams down in Brisbane.”
