Sheldon College recently travelled to Toowoomba for the Intermediate Queensland Volleyball Schools Cup, a statewide tournament bringing together the best schools for three days of Volleyball. Whilst the chilly weather proved an unexpected challenge, the teams met their biggest challenge on the court with great intensity and skill.   

The Sheldon College Year 9 and 10 Boys’ team was entered into unchartered territory, playing in Division 1 for only the second time in our history. They successfully progressed to the Quarter Finals, only to go down to the eventual Gold medal team. Their improvement over the past three months has been remarkable as they continue to go from strength to strength in our volleyball program.    

Our girls were entered into an extremely competitive Division 2, representing the highest division for Year 9 and 10 girls since 2015. They had an extremely successful campaign, leaving with the first Gold medal by a Sheldon College Girls’ team in 10 years! It is hardly surprising that State Selectors and Coaches were impressed with the talent of several team members and that Sheldon’s Zoe Beith was named the Most Valuable Player in the Division.  

Congratulations to all students involved for your achievements which are a credit to your talent and commitment to the program. Thank you to the Coaches, Managers and Parents for your continued support.
