With the end-of-term Country Senior High Schools Carnival cancelled because of COVID-19 last week, Busselton Volleyball Association organised a mini competition for local teams.

Skills and gameplay were put to the test last Thursday at the Geographe Leisure Centre in a tournament-style format.

Teams from Busselton Senior High School, Cape Naturaliste College and Margaret River Senior High School had been training hard from the beginning of the year for the country week competition under the guidance of their coaches.

Several players also play in the local indoor competition, and others represent Busselton in the WA Volleyball League competition.

Students from across the Capes gathered to compete in lieu of Country Week.

Busselton and Margaret River won the boys’ and girls’ divisions respectively.

Regional volleyball development co-ordinator Brad Barclay was on hand to scout for talent for Volleyball WA.

Mr Barclay said he was impressed by the standard of the matches, the energy, and the camaraderie among all the players.

Busselton Volleyball president David Hutchins said he hoped the event would encourage the students to continue in local volleyball competitions.
