On September 9th both our Boysand Girls volleyball teams headed to Wuxi to play their first two games of the season. With such a quick turnaround of the volleyball season, the students had to rely on the skills they learned last year, and just two training sessions prior to the matches.
In the first match, our Boys played Nawai Kings College, winning both sets with good score lines. Set 1 25-15 and set 225-19, was a strong start to the season, with new members in the team showing their strengths.
