Round one of this years EDVA Ladies Development events took place in Plymouth yesterday. Torexe entered two teams, an adult team and the youngsters, for Sam, Fi and Tiago, it was their first taste of match volleyball.
After the morning quick fire round, the youngsters found themselves in second place in group two, and with a play off match against PMVC Tigers to decide who would take part in the afternoons top group. A real nail-biting match but at the hooter, they had done it by two points and joined the Torexe adults in the top group, who had earlier sailed through the early group one round unbeaten.
This set up two three set matches between the Torexe teams and Plymouth University for the event title. A very competitive afternoon session and although the Torexe youngsters took sets off both Torexe and Plymouth University to set up a deciding third set in both matches. A win did not happen but it was a very well deserved third place finish for round one. First Place went to Torexe, with Plymouth Uni in second.
Well done to the youngster, Stefanie, Fiona, Samantha, Eleanor, Karis, Kirsty and Tiago. As for the guys in light blue, well you know who they are.
