The revived action began last Tuesday at the Girls’ High School and George Stephens Secondary School hard courts.

At the Girls’ High School hard court, Thomas Saunders Secondary School won by default from the Intermediate High School in the Female Division, and in the Male Division, the St. Martin’s Secondary was triumphant over the Thomas Saunders Secondary, 2-0. St. Martin’s won 25-21, 25-19.

Likewise, at the George Stephens venue, both the Bethel High School and the Dr JP Eustace Memorial made a no show in the Female Division, but Georgetown Secondary overcame their host in straight sets, 2-0. Georgetown defeated their opponents, 25-22, 25-23, in a closely contested match up.

When both schools squared off in the Male Division, the situation was no different, as another tight encounter ensued.

Again, Georgetown Secondary came out on top, winning 26-24, 26-24.

Nine male teams and eight female outfits are registered for the competition, which is laying the platform for a host of activities on the national Volleyball calendar.

February 5 should see the opening of the National Club Competition, set to commence at the Girls’ High School hard court.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is set to host the Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Associations (ECVA) Under-16 Male Competition in the latter part of February, with the females set to head out to St. Lucia for their version in early March.

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Under-18 Male team which won the ECVA title last year has a date with the wider region later this year in Mexico. (RT)
