Horsham tournament success

Posted by devo on November 25, 2009

Congratulations to Padua Sharks, Renegades, Ballarat, Monash Phantoms and Daylesford on your victories at the tournament over the weekend of 21st/22nd of November ~ 2009 Horsham Tournament Results ~ The Horsham Volleyball Association thanks all participants for their support of the event!

Mens Div 1: Padua Sharks defeated KAFO 3-2: 15-25, 25-22, 25-19, 24-26, 15-8. MVP – Lachie Giles (Sunraysia). The Sharks redeemed themselves from the previous year, riding high on the back of the brilliance of the DeSalvo brothers when it counted most in the final set.

Women’s Div 1: Renegades defeated Phantoms 3-2: 14-25, 23-25, 25-15, 25-22, 15-13. MVP – Sheila Babayan (Reds). A classic final with very little separating the two all game. In the end the experience of Sheila Babayan and the clever hitting from Jess McMillan and Sarah Tarquinio proved the difference.

        Now now… J Potts and L Spencer would have done their bit, right? (Ps: My bias isn’t quite a great as Devo’s ;)

          I was, of course, refering to Mrs Devo’s genes!

          They certainly did. A massive effort from all the guys and girls in the finals to get 6 games of volleyball in to the weekend.

          My highlight was Spence blocking the crap out of someone and then pulling the net down a (politely of course) educating them to how they would have to improve their skills to get the ball past him next time!

          A fantastic tournament. Dave Berry and the support team up in Horsham run one of the best tournaments in the country! No fuss and lots of fun.

    Hey Robbo,

    I’ll have to get some figures from Dave Berry for you on our win – loss ratio. I do believe we (Padua Sharks) have made the finals every year we’ve been! Not bad for a bunch of hacks! Lol!

    Best of luck this year with State League & GO FALCONS!!!!!!
