Four Nudgee College students have recently represented the state at the 2016 Australian Junior Volleyball Championships.

Year 11s Thomas Olsson and Mitchell Herrigan, and Year 10 student Elijah Tabuarua, were part of the Under 17 Queensland White team, while Year 12 student Lewis Begg competed in the Under 19 Maroon team.

Held at the Gold Coast from 25 September to 1 October, the championships brought together some of the best junior volleyball players in the country, for a gruelling nine games over seven days.

The Under 17 team conquered the competition, finishing undefeated to win the gold medal.

As a result of their efforts, the boys were invited to participate in a Volleyball Australia Junior Development Camp, after which Lewis Begg was selected to play in the Australian Institute of Sport Centre of Excellence team in this year’s Australian Volleyball League.

Congratulations to all of the boys on their outstanding efforts.
