PREM Volleyball Players are Flying High!

Over the last few years, volleyball has become one of the most popular sports at Prem. From when we started introducing the sport in Grade 5 HPE up until our U20 teams, the skill levels have risen all across Prem and this week’s U16 and U20 CMAC volleyball tournaments certainly highlight that.

With the U20 girls and U16 boys tournaments being hosted at Prem and the U20 Boys and U16 girls at CMIS, it has been a busy but exciting week. On Tuesday we started with the U20 tournaments, which will be the last time some of our Grade 12’s play for the Prem Panthers. The U20’s did not disappoint! Against all odds (Missing 3 of our starting players), the U20 boys got all the way to the final, losing to CMIS to become the Runners Up. The U20 girls saw the same two teams in the final and it ended up being an absolute classic. Back and forth, it went down to the wire, with Prem becoming U20 girls volleyball champions.

The U16’s had a tough act to follow, but they showed that the future is bright for Prem volleyball. We divided the boys into two teams (Prem A + B), so all the players got more time on the court. Despite being much younger than the other teams, they put up a great fight against all the teams they played and pushed them all the way. The girls also came back with silverware, getting the 3rd place medals.

It was an excellent couple of days, so well done to all our players!
