NZ Girls Thwart Australian Sweep

Posted by Rapids Volleyball on Friday, June 13, 2008

The Secondary Schools Trans-Tasman Volleyball Competition has been contested and completed in Nelson. The final result saw Queensland girls beating the North Island girls 3-2 ( 23-25, 25-21, 23-25, 25-19, 15-12 ). In the boys competition Queensland defeated defending champs North Island 3-0 ( 25-21, 25-21, 27-29 ). The Trans-Tasman competition involved teams from the North Island, South Island, Queensland and New South Wales. At the conclusion of the Trans-Tasman competition, test teams were selected to create a match of Australia vs New Zealand.

Queensland walked away from the four-day tournament with both the boys and girls’ titles. But Australia missed the sweep when the New Zealand girls won their test in a five-set thriller, leaving the Australian boys’ team to wrap up the series with a 3-2 win over New Zealand.
