Great day of Volleyball at SEVA for the Ladies
Today, the Winchester Eagles Ladies Team competed at SEVA in the regional finals against the top teams from five counties.
It was a long day of tough games in a crowded, hot and noisy hall with no chance to warm up but this year the Ladies came better prepared and took advantage of every second and every corner to try and be game ready at the sound of the hooter.
Although they didn’t make it to the semifinals, they performed extremely well and were able to put up a good fight in all games against really strong sides.
They had moments of brilliance, some monster blocks, powerful hits, strong serves with many aces and they worked their socks off in defence, fighting hard to keep the ball alive. The passing unit was challenged at times, with floating serves putting our Ladies under pressure but they had very good strategies to quickly get back into the red zone.
They managed to beat Epsom , nearly took a set from Oxford (the pool winners) and kept both Dartford and Worthing on their toes.
It was great to see how much the team has grown in just one season. They are now able to compete at the highest levels, they are really working well as a team and supporting each other and definitely belong with the top teams in the region. We are very very proud of all of them and have high hopes for next season. Well played everyone!
