Congratulations to the Westlake Girls Junior A volleyball team for reaching the finals of the Auckland Championship tournament after winning all their games, without dropping a set in pool play.
In the quarter final, they met Ormiston before facing Mangere College in the semi-final where they were efficient and thorough. However, in the final they faced North Shore foe, Rangitoto College who eventually won in two tight sets. The team came away with a silver medal and top honours for two players. Congratulations to Holly Isherwood and Rebecca Moors who were both selected for the Auckland tournament team.
Two teams represented Westlake Girls at the Auckland Champs and the young WGHS 9A team ended up being the highest performing second team from a school at the Auckland Champs. Captained by Tai Baillie, the Year 9 team finished second in their pool after losing to Orewa A and beating Aorere A in 3 sets. The 9A team finished 12th out of 48 teams. Westlake Girls will field 3 teams at the North Island Secondary School Junior Championships in Mt Maunganui from 23 – 26 November.
