Three Waimea players, Captain Katie Ditzel and Georgia Davies, Hannah Davehill were selected for the New Zealand Secondary School (NZSS) national tournament team.
Alister McKenzie and Colin Redpath, coaches of the national women's and men’s teams, were the main selectors of the 2015 girls and boys.
McKenzie said “the girls chosen have done outstanding work to help their teams perform and achieve the final results”.
Waimea College had to settle for silver at the New Zealand Secondary School (NZSS) Volleyball Nationals in Palmerston North.
The deciding game was against Burnside High School girls.
The two South Island teams had a nail biting game, Burnside narrowly winning against Waimea 3-2 (19-25 25-18 25-19 20-25 15-12).
Waimea Captain, Katie Ditzel is still proud of her team and said they played well.
The boy’s division one final was won by Western Heights High School 3-0 against Heathfield High School (AUS).
Trials will be held for the New Zealand age group teams at Arena Manawatu tomorrow.
