Your News: Superb volleyball from young stars

Bourne Westfield's volleyball team

Last week our volleyball team (Kyle Evans, Omar Hassine Hinks, David Turner and George Wright) represented South East Lincolnshire in the Lincolnshire School Games at Cherry Willingham School.

They faced seven other schools from around Lincolnshire who had also won through to the county finals after winning their area heats. 

The opposition was of a high standard and the Westfield team got off to a nervous start losing a closely fought match against Osgodby 12 - 13.

But they soon put that defeat behind them. They got in to their stride really quickly, played some excellent volleyball and won their next six games comfortably.

Going in to their last match they were in with a real chance of winning the tournament but lost to Richmond school, who were deserved winners of the competition. Our team finished third overall by just one point, but their standard of volleyball and sportsmanship throughout the day was laudable.
