The usual hectic Senior girls volleyball season moved through the final round of league play, confirming city placings within respective tiers and positioning teams for the Vic Lindal Cup, emblematic of city supremacy.
SMUS was in consistent form throughout, defeating Mt. Douglas 3-0 to complete league action. Then – behind strong leadership from Jessica Jiang and Sam Colby, impressive front row play by Beta Willeboordse, and the steady setting of Amy Bodine – the Blue Jags knocked off Esquimalt (25-19, 25-12), Spectrum (25-11, 25-8) and Reynolds (25-21, 25-17) to capture the City AAA playoffs. With these wins, the team will enter the Island AAA Tournament as the South #1 seed.
November 5 sees the start of the Vic Lindal Cup, an event involving teams from all tiers in Victoria. Quarterfinals are set to be played at Claremont, with the championship and consolation rounds held at SMUS two days later.
