This week, we had the girls and boys High School house volleyball between the three houses, Amaterasu, Bishamon and Tsukiyomi organized by Aakriti as part of her GCSE PE assessment.
High School Girls.
Amaterasu seemed to be the firm favorites for the girls to clinch the first win of the evening as they squared up against Bishamon but solid serving in the 3rd set from Maria gave the underdogs a 2-1 victory over Amaterasu. Straight after the 2-1 victory, Bishamon were on court again to play Tsukiyomi who only had 4 players in their team! Despite this Emily, Rayna, Areej and Iona made sure Bishamon were left stunned for underestimating their opponent as they came out on top with a hard labored 2-1 victory. Upon seeing what happened to Bishamon, Amaterasu went into the 3rd game of the evening against Tsukiyomi focused and made no mistake of underestimating their opponents, as a result they cruised to a 2-0 victory over their Tsukiyomi.
The results from the 3 games meant that there was a tie between Amaterasu and Bishamon and as a result, the two houses would have to square up against each other once more to decide the overall winner. The two houses played a 1 set game up to 8 points and it was Amaterasu this time that came out on top after they held their nerves to win 8-4. So overall after the four action packed games played on the evening, Amaterasu came 1st, Bishamon 2nd and Tsukiyomi 3rd.
High School Boys
The scene was set for the battle of the big hitters….. On a balmy Tuesday evening the three houses drew their lots. Amaterasu to play Bishamon, Bishamon then to play Tsukiyomi and finally Amaterasu to play the Tsukitomi. Vibrant colours of green, orange and purple punctuated the tiles as bodies thrown in sacrifice dove to stop the ball hitting the floor. All three matches were a joy to behold.
In the first match Bishamon with the power and precision of Vitor Bronzatto took on the guile and athleticism of Josh Tateno and his Amaterasu team. Green won the first, orange won the second and in the final set the Orange pipped the Green Machine. Tsukiyomi saw themselves as the underdogs and in the first set it seemed that the Purple David’s would indeed slay the Green Goliaths. Order however was restored and Bishamon won the second and third sets comfortably. The stage was set for the final match as a Tsukiyomi win would mean a three way tie. Amaterasu were just too strong and ran out comfortable 2-0 winners. The final standing Amaterasu 1st, Bishamon 2nd and Tsukiyomi third. Great volleyball, healthy competition; overall a great evening!!!
