Mid Central women’s volleyball side were one of the tough teams to beat during the final day of the the Crest Chicken Easter Volleyball National Championship at the FMF Gymnasium yesterday.

The Mid Central Volleyball Association’s president Josh Tulele said their players aim to be part of the national side for the upcoming Oceania Championship.

“Fiji Volleyball will be selecting the national team from this tournament and we are just hoping some of the girls would make it to the national squad since Fiji is fielding two teams for the Oceania Games,” he said.

“This is an opportunity for these girls to get into the team and be exposed at international level and not just at national level.”

Tulele explained they did not have much time to prepare for the games but however was impressed with their performance.

“We needed more time for preparations to actually make the cut and most of the girls were working. We only train outdoor so basically when they knock off from work we don’t have time, so we only on Saturdays.”

Tulele said the quarter final against Suva was one of the toughest. We were both winners from our pool games and to come out as winners is surely a bonus.

“We had a bad start because of some internal issues that was going on but we managed to finish the game in two straight sets,” he said.

The team consist of the national volleyball rep Anaseini Seniloli and netball rep Temumu Moce.

The finals were still going on last night when this edition went to press.
