Volleyball team enjoys 'smashing' tournament success

Volleyball players from Highfields smashed it on the court to take the top spot in a tough tournament.

Members of the Year 8 volleyball team - Mia Cashmore, Georgia Derrick and India Martin - won the Wolverhampton Schools competition and have now qualified to represent Highfields at the Black Country Youth Games in April.

P.E Teacher, Ms L.Stevenson, said: “They played extremely well and smashed their way through the first rounds and remained undefeated until the end. 

“Even though, with one minute to go, they were down 13-14, they held onto their nerve and won two quick points in the last minute to win their final game 15-14.

“Well done to the team, this is a great achievement.”
