Volleyball All-Stars serve up thrillers
Spectators were entertained with two thrilling encounters at the Bermuda School Sports Federation senior school All-Star volleyball matches at Mount Saint Agnes Academy.
The East won the senior boys match in a three-set thriller. They comfortably won the first set 25-13, with some hard-hitting offence. The West rallied in the second set and took a 24-18 lead before allowing the East to come within two points in a late rally before winning 25-22. The third set proved to be a see-saw battle before the East came out on top 15-13.
Caleb Hamilton, from Warwick Academy, was the West MVP, while Saltus Grammar School's Tristan Mullan was East MVP behind his strong serving and precise setting.
The West enacted revenge in the girls match in another nail-biter. The East won a close first set 25-22 before the West stormed back to win the second 25-22. The third set was tied at 14-14 before Kamryn Martins, from MSA, finished the match on the back of two serves that could not be returned. The East MVP was Sy McPeek, from Saltus, for her fierce serving and attacking at the net. Candace Paynter from the Berkeley Institute was West MVP.
