Volleyball NSW SVL 2009

  • Commences this Sunday 17th May 2009
  • Venue Sydney Olympic Park Sports Halls
  • Cnr Grand Parade and Olympic Bvde
  • First games 9.00 am

Who will be the champions this year? – Will anyone be able to dethrone the Honours womens favourites Sydney Uni?

Men’s Honours is wide open with long time champs Sydney Cedars sadly unable to field a team this year. Will it be UNSW or Westside?

The lower divisions look to be up for grabs as well – keep your eye on the SVL website for all the latest.

NSW State League

Posted by devo on September 15, 2008

The New South Wales State League finals were played at the weekend.

Honours Men
The Bronze game saw an exciting five setter between UTS and USYD. UTS continued their good form from last week and came out firing to take the first set 25 to 21. USYD fought back to win the second but could not continue their run and lost the third. That was followed by a close fourth set which USYD managed to take out 26-24. UTS went hard in the fifth and led 8-0 before USYD clawed their way back, however the UTS led was too much for USYD and UTS took out the set giving them the Bronze for 2008. UTS def USYD, 25-21, 20-25, 25-17, 24-26, 15-13.

In the Gold playoff, UNSW had nothing to lose against 11 time champions, Cedars. In what was a surprising start to the match, UNSW took out the first 25 to 22. However Cedars proved too strong taking the next two sets 25-19 and 25-18. UNSW were not to be discounted and tried their best to level the match, going point for point in much of the fourth set, however Cedars managed to get a few points ahead and UNSW could not come back, Cedars taking out the last set 25-23. Gold to Cedars! Cedars def UNSW, 22-25, 25-19, 25-18, 25-23.

Honours Women
Third place was decided last week, when UTS lost to SNV in the preliminary final. This week, SNV had to face USYD in the gold final, USYD were coming back after the week off. The first set was close, with the teams siding out most of the way through, keeping the scores level. However, USYD proved too strong in the end and they took out the set 25-23. They continued that run taking the second 25-18. But SNV would not go down without a fight and they managed to take the third 25-23. SNV managed to continue that form and led for most of the fourth set, however USYD pulled through in the end, taking the fourth set and the match 25 to 22. Gold to USYD! USYD def SNV, 25-23, 25-18, 23-25, 25-22.

Divison One Men
Bronze: USYD def Dragons 1 25-21, 25-16, 25-27, 25-21.
Gold: UTS def Eagles, 26-24, 17-25, 19-25, 25-15, 15-10.

Divison One Women
Bronze: BHV H def Kaiata, 22-25, 25-15, 25-14, 24-26, 15-6.
Gold: Manly def USYD B, 26-24, 25-20, 25-19.

Junior Boys

Bronze: USYD def Dragons, 25-16, 25-21, 25-15.
Gold: Vostok def BHV, 19-25, 25-18, 25-23, 17-25, 15-7.

Junior Girls
Bronze: BHV def USYD, 25-18, 25-10, 25-15.
Gold: SNV def UTS 2 25-23, 25-23, 25-22.

Club Championship
It was a close tussle between UTS and USYD this year, with both clubs having teams in almost all the division’s finals. USYD had an edge having entered more teams, however that would mean nothing if the teams did not go on to win. In the end the success of those teams resulted in USYD taking out the championship by a single point! Well done to both clubs for a well fought competition! Congratulations to USYD! more@ VolleyballNSW
