RKV Player of the day for OPS Monkeys was Maia Marsden and week before Ethan Alderson. 

KEA Player of the day this week was presented to Lucia for great movement around the court and hand skills- she made some great catches. 

OPS Kiwis vs Omanu.Omanu has one of the best teams in the competition.  OPS Kiwis got very nervous and panicked.  They were not able to do any of their skills they had practised and were losing 10 nil.  When they forgot about the other team and focussed on their skills and how they did things, the game started to change - suddenly the score was 14 all.  Final score was 17-16 to Omanu but all players in OPS Kiwis should be very proud of not giving up, getting over nerves - being resilient.  Well done ladies.  Looking forward to practice.

OPS Wekas Player of the day this week went to Katie Sparrow.

Kiwi Volleyball - Friday 24th Oct - Friday 10th Dec 

Well done to Cerys Byrne from OPS Gold for her player of the day.  Well done!
