Beach Volleyball Championships

The McKinnon Secondary College volleyball program has started the year with a large amount of success. Three students from the program have been selected for the Victorian Junior Beach volleyball team to complete in the Australian Junior championships in Bunbury, WA. A further two students have been selected in the under 17 Australian Junior team to tour Thailand in Term 2. The first school competition for the year was the Victorian All Schools Beach Volleyball Championships from Wednesday 13 to Friday 15 March. The school was represented by 24 beach volleyball teams in the event. McKinnon Secondary College finished overall as the second best beach volleyball school in Victoria. This result was the best that the program has achieved with 4 Gold and 2 Silver medals in the event.

The McKinnon Volleyball program now turns its attention to indoor volleyball with the Victorian Volleyball League (VVL) that is a 15 round season that starts on Saturday 30 March. We wish the nine teams participating in this event the best of luck.

I would like to acknowledge and thank Mr De Salvo for his organization of this event and for giving these students an opportunity to shine!
