Rangitoto Volleyball have had a wonderful season. On the back of both our premier teams winning the Australia premier division in the Gold Coast in December, both teams have continued their golden run, winning the Harbour Super League, Auckland Premier League, and just before nationals, the Auckland Championships. The girls beat One Tree Hill, while the boys beat traditional rivals Manurewa in the final.


At the NZ Nationals, our girls won the gold completing an unbeaten season and being crowned as national champions. Played 38 won 38! The girls beat Christchurch Girls 3-1 in the final. The team was expertly coached by Adam Watson and Aoife King and amazingly managed by Jamie Sowter. Four of the team were selected for the tournament team: Kalea Norton MVP, Devyn Golaboski, Jasmine Rugg, and Ngaawai Simpkins. Rangitoto girls who had never won the title until 2023 have now gone back-to-back.


The boys team showed incredible fight in coming back from two sets down to beat Hillcrest 3-2 in the semi. However, they had to settle for silver being beaten by Tauranga Boys in the final 3-1. Tournament team selections were Cuba Rihari, Logan Vorster, and Josh Perks. The team is wonderfully coached by alumni Sam Bell and Johann Timmer while being superbly managed by Josh Bullen. 


Our future players competed in B teams at Nationals where our boys won bronze in Div 4 and our B Girls won 7 out of 9 games. 


Thanks to Kayla Polly, Lexi Townsend, and Graham Lowe for their diligent contribution throughout the season. Thanks also to our red army of supportive parents who were amazing all season.
