Chance of gold for Gladstone volleyball teams at nationals
THREE of the five Gladstone State High School volleyball teams are in gold medal contention in Melbourne.
The Year 10 girls have so far won three from three games at the 2015 Davonport Australian Volleyball Schools Cup which finishes tomorrow.
"The Year Nine and 10 girls are undefeated playing off in division two and today is the semi-final to determine a gold medal playoff which will be played tomorrow," van der Weide said.
The senior girls have had one win and one loss out the two games they have played.
"Our open girls are doing okay with two narrow losses to Billonock and Rosemoyne from WA," van der Weide said. "That puts them into a consolation pool and they maybe playing for sixth place in the country."
Australian under-17 representative Denzi Petry has been one of the leading performers against young women aged 18 to 19 years.
Van der Weide said the open girls are part of a two-year project.
"Everyone's playing well and have been enjoying themselves," van der Weide added.
The Year Eight girls have so far lost one game out of one and the Year Seven girls have so far had a draw.
