Good luck to the Mornington Volleyball Club!

30 08 2007

A volleyball club waaaay back in Australia that I used to have strong ties to has done a pretty impressive job in the Victorian State League.
This weekend, the following teams will compete in the finals:

  • Junior Boys (vs Yarra Ranges)
  • Junior Girls (vs Monash)
  • Men’s Div. 2 (vs Renegades)
  • Women’s Div. 2 (vs Cossacks)
  • Women’s Div. 1 (vs Renegades)
  • Men’s Honours (vs Falcons)

Should these teams win through this weekend, they go to the Grand Finals on September 8th.

As a former member who still maintains (tho’ somewhat tenuous) ties to the club, all the best guys. Go get ’em!

Go Mornington!

Sorry mate – they’ll go down. With Matty DeSalvo back from a hand break and ready to set – it’s all over before the crowds arrive. Who me? Biased?

Don votes for Mornington in the Vic State League « devo’s volleyball

[…] Vic guys will remember Don from Padua. He’s now in Japan and has one of THE blogs out there – with malice. Here he remembers his old mates and votes with his heart for Mornington in the Vic State League. […]

That’s funny….Devo and Brooksy didn’t make any difference last time they were both there??

Falcon’s chances flew off long before Devo made his comeback. They’re a pretty simple lot…they suffer from the same problem as Yarra Ranges…no Steve no team.

With Steve Brooks gone o/s Falcons have little left in the nest.

Likewise with no Steve Wallace Yarra Ranges wont be able to scale the heights of Southern Cross Fairhills.

Mornington and Southern Cross to win Saturday.
Mornington to win Sunday.
It’ll take a miracle for anyone to topple Southern Cross in the final.

Catch ya

sorry shane.

Despite Falcons trying hard to lose: up 20-15 in the third they eventually won.

25-21, 27-25, 23-25, 27-29, 15-7. Close Mornington, but no cigar

Mornington has two girls teams in Grand Finals this weekend!

Our junior girls (U17) team who finished top of the ladder in their division play off for the junior girls title. And our Women’s Div 2 team played an awesome Prelim Final yesterday (beating Monash – suffer!!!!!) to win their way into their final.

I am very proud of both teams – they both very much deserve to be playing GF’s.

Heh… pretty sure I know who this is!
Well done Nicky! And congratulations to the Div 2 women & the Junior girls!
