Monday 8 December
Orleans Park School v Richmond Park Academy
Report by Ms Bird
Monday evening saw the first girls volleyball match of the year, the Year 10 girls took on Orleans Park away. Although slightly out of practice the team warmed up well and were lucky enough to have a specific volleyball coach from Richmond help them develop their skills and tactics in the beginning.
Orleans produced a very strong team which is a result of their weekly volleyball coaching sessions and had brilliant technique. Our girls took a while to find their rhythm and to work together successfully as a team. When they eventually started working together there were some amazing moments with great skill, teamwork and determination shown. Great resilience was shown by all students involved and I was very proud to take them and watch them play.
Well done to Jade, Anya, Charlotte and Amie.
