Our year 10 volleyball teams travelled to Craigavon Leisure Centre to compete in the NI U14 Cup. The teams played some excellent volleyball throughout the day with all 6 teams performing well. The boys’ B and C teams were very unlucky to miss out on the semi-finals on points difference. The A team had been the stand out team during the group stage and had a 100% win record. They played Lurgan B in the semi-final, winning comfortably. They then faced Lurgan A in the final. Despite a spirited effort by Lurgan the Tandragee boys continued their fine form and took the title once again, winning 15-11 & 15-12.
Our 3 girls’ teams took delivery of their new kit on the morning of the tournament. Looking the part, the girls new they had to perform. They did not disappoint with both the A and B teams progressing to the semi-finals. The A team comfortably beat Drumglass HS 15-10 whilst the B team put up a great fight against Lismore, eventually losing 13-15. The final was a very tight affair with little between the teams. Lismore took the first set 15-13 . The Tandragee girls really put in a super effort in set 2 with some excellent serving by Beth Preston. This set was even closer with Lismore narrowly winning 16-14.
This was another successful day for TJHS volleyball and Mr Gale was very proud of all 6 teams. He would also like to thank Mrs O’Hare for all of her help throughout the year
Tandragee boys travelled to play Killicomaine in volleyball on Thursday 10th March 2016. It was a very close match with some super play by both teams. After starting strongly and winning the first set, Tandragee lost focus and lost the next two sets. They regained their focus and composure to win the fourth and fifth set to win the match 3-2
Well done boys
