Lebedew wins without Bawden

Posted by devo on October 14, 2009

Tom Bawden – Mark Lebedew (C) – Volleyball Club FrankenTranslation – Another Aussie theme to a win – this time in Germany. The re-badged Eschenbacher volleys (who took up the licence of the nearby SG Eschenbacher Eltmann) succeeded in the Jako Arena in Bamberg. The newly formed League team on Friday night swept Moerser SC 3:0 (25:11, 25:16, 25:21) out of the hall and landed in the second game of the season their first victory.

It was a great team effort, everyone has done his job,” enthused coach Mark Lebedew after the emphatic victory. … a surprisingly clear home success, although the hosts had to do without their diagonal Tom Bawden. The Australian national team member only returned on Friday.

Aussies win in Sweden

Posted by devo on February 16, 2009

Steve Wallace and Tom Bawden‘s  – LUGIWorldLingo translation won a surprise meeting with Tierp 3-2-with 15- 12 in the deciding set. And it was also a historic victory for the team  – who had never defeated Tierp in Elitserien.

Tierp turned  0-2 sets down into 2 sets all. After the team took home the fourth with a clear 25-18, it was believed that Tierp had the momentum to win the fifth set. At 10-9,  however, Lugi’s Sven Boström Svensson won three straight points including two aces, which meant that the home team pulled to 12-10. Steven Wallace, after two hours, took match point when his hit was in: 15-12.

Lugi had their large profiles in the passports Kalle Sandberg and scoring king Thomas Bawden. In the first set, it was often  Bawden vs Tierp. The Australian took 28 points. original article ~ translation

Tri State Tournament

Posted by devo on October 28, 2007

Mildura Grand 2007 Tri State Championships

UPDATE 5: Original posted 26/10/07 – 21:29
My correspondent tells me: The Clinics seemed to be the biggest winner for the weekend. Some of our Junior Athletes that got to have a hit this morning with the teams and our juniors who line Ref’d, I am sure will not forget the experience!!

Today (Sunday) the AIS defeated the team that is going to Korea 3-0

All of my spies are telling me that the weekend was a fantastic experience. Of course, the talk is already turning to next year. The players want to experience the Mildura hospitality again. The question is what form should next year’s tournament take. I hope that Mildura looks to go bigger and even better (if that is possible!). Perhaps it’s time to see the return of Men’s Nationals? Or a competition between the winners of each states’ state league? I guess it all comes down to what the AVF do with the Australian Volleyball League. I know that the competitors at this week’s tournament will need no encouragement to head to Mildura again. Well done to all those who organised the weekend!

The Mildura Grand 2007 Tri State Championships were won by the AIS. Tournament MVP was Tom Bawden. Tomorrow the overseas touring team will play the AIS in a exhibition game.
Match 3AIS def Falcons 3-0. The AIS were dominant in the first set. The second set, Falcons were able to keep it close, but the AIS ran away with it in the third. Best players were Tom Bawden, Adam White and Dave Delaland.

Match 2
Mt Lofty def Falcons 3-2. Falcons took the first 2 sets in this mornings game before Mt Lofty began a winning streak of 3 sets. My spies have nominated Stu Maycock and Dave Delaland as best players.

The first match at the Mildura Grand 2007 Tri State Championships is over. See also here.

The AIS def Mt Lofty 3-1 (25-15, 25-20, 22-25, 25-21). Devo’s spies have nominated the best players as Adam White and Tom Bawden.

A good crowd was in to watch the match. Mildura Volleyball is putting on a great show: qualified first and second refs and right on down to the great job being done by the floor wipers. Those country associations know how to put on a show. The Falcons boys tell me that the accommodation at The Quality Hotel Mildura Grand in Mildura is absolutely fantastic. I wonder if they’re getting to taste any of Stephano’s food?

Tomorrow Falcons gets to play Mt Lofty first up, and the AIS tomorrow night.
