Winchester Eagles Ladies team play in their first HVA ladies Grand Prix
Over the weekend, the newly-formed ladies team started their HVA tournament with a bang! Fielding 9 players, we managed to win 2 games, and after losing 2 players to injuries (dislocated knee and slight head concussion!), we unfortunately lost to 2-1 to Southampton VC’s NVL first team. These are our results.
25-18, 25-21 win over Golden Girls
25-11, 25-15 win over Southampton Uni
25-20, 20-25, 6-15 loss to SVC1
2 of our ladies had their first formal match experience, and enjoyed it! The ladies team look forward to a re-match with SVC in the new year.
Winchester Eagles ladies team make their debut!
The Winchester Eagles newly-formed Ladies team made their debut with a friendly match against Basingstoke Ladies team on Friday 11th Oct.
Despite not playing with one another as a squad, and the ladies having their first ladies training on the Monday previous, the team came together and totalled 11. It took the ladies a bit of time to warm to each other, and we lost a middle player to injury in the first 6 mins, but eventually winning the last of 3 sets (15-25, 21-25, 25-23). Some of us even followed the eagles tradition and went to the pub with the opposition after!
Looking forward to our next ladies training and match at HVA on 10 Nov !
Eagles Land 3rd place at HVA Mixed League Grand Prix
Great performance for the Winchester Eagles today in Gosport at the first Hampshire Volleyball Association Mixed Grand Prix. The Eagles nearly managed second place and finished third only by points difference. Some great volleyball and certainly a good endurance test in this all day tournament of six timed games. Well played everyone!
