Teens court more success

The 15-year-olds are playing for the School Sport WA (SSWA) state volleyball team.

With Rossmoyne having a renowned volleyball program, volleyball co-ordinator Rory Read said he hoped his students did well.

‘Our teams regularly compete for medals at this event so that would be the goal for the teams,’ he said.

‘From Rossmoyne’s point of view, we hope our athletes represent the values and work ethic our program is based on and compete at a high level, with good sportsmanship.’

Mr Read said the school’s program had run for 20 years.

‘Last year, we were ranked third nationally behind two South Australian schools. We have won the State Schools Cup every year it has existed and have produced two Olympians, over 30 National reps and many state reps,’ he said.

SSWA has been responsible for the development and promotion of representative school sport in WA since it was established in 1909.

Its main purpose is to promote, organise and co-ordinate sporting competition for students at local, regional and interstate level.

With SSWA co-ordinating 36 state teams each year, students from both public and private schools are selected to participate.

Tahlia Agron, Momoka Haddrell, Zali Hitchman, Emilee McIntosh, Henry Lam, Todd Lowther, Jerromme Tan and Jafri Yakin from Rossmoyne Senior High School are competing.
