Last Tuesday, six schools from across the town took part in the Hyde School Sports Volleyball tournament at Hyde Community College.
Schools fought it out in teams of 4 to be crowned the winners with a close fought battle at the top when the results were finalised.
After a tie between the leading two teams, Dowson Primary beat Gee Cross Primary after points scored for and against were calculated.
Even though volleyball is not often taught as much as other sports within primary schools, it was pleasing to see some great play on show. All teams played hard and produced some tough rallies and all players stepped up to a challenging tournament and showed good sportsmanship.
As always the Sports Leaders and staff from Hyde Community College refereed and hosted the event to their usual high standard and the organisers thank them.
