Western Phantoms win accolades at Volleyball Victoria awards night

Volleyball Victoria had its annual awards night at the weekend with good news coming the way of MIXX FM Western Phantoms members.
President Matt Gordon was awarded the most improved for the Uni Blues National League men’s team for season 2015.
Full credit to Matt, as he has led the charge for his peers in having a crack at playing national league. So much so that in 2016, four country Victorian team-mates will join him in playing the pinnacle of volleyball in Australia, including current premier men’s most valuable player Josh Gordon, and fellow Phantoms Michael Mayes, Nick Adamson and Adrian Fox.
Volleyball Horsham followers will get the chance to see Matt and his Uni Blues team when they travel to Horsham to play Adelaide Storm in round three of the national league on October 22 and 23.
In another boost for the Western Phantoms club, reserves women’s captain Georgie Hassell won the MVP award. This was Georgie’s first at this level and backs up her club award she won.
Talented juniors
The number of talented junior players within the ranks of Volleyball Horsham is growing, with many of these juniors getting the opportunity to display their wares at next week’s Bendigo Junior Dragon City tournament.
It is always interesting to see how our players compare with their peers from other volleyball centres. It will provide coaches with an indication of how athletes are progressing. In previous years this tournament has been used as a launching pad for Volleyball Horsham teams to get their first taste of tournament action, and teams have tasted success. As an association we look forward to seeing how this next group of youngsters performs against quality opposition.
Anyone is interested in participating in volleyball in the Wimmera can call 0487 824 599.
