CEESA HS Boys Volleyball Tournament in Belgrade

This year the CEESA HS Boys Volleyball tournament took place in Belgrade, May 16th and 17th. Due to the great volleyball interest among our HS boys, instead of only one NOVA was able to field two teams for this tournament, with a total of 15 students in attendance. After the round robin phase and the semi-final matches both NOVA teams qualified to play in the placement games, without a single defeat.

In the 3rd place match our NOVA B team showed great character and after an exhausting five sets (3:2), managed to win the bronze medal by defeating the team from Pechersk School International (Kiev).

In the match for the 1st place NOVA A team played versus the team of the host school, International School of Belgrade. In by far the most exciting match of the tournament, it was narrowly defeated, winning second place and securing the silver medal.

Winning two trophies was a perfect ending to the spring volleyball season. Players and coaches were more than happy with their accomplishment. They're already looking forward to repeating and improving on this year's success at the next CEESA HS boys volleyball tournament to take place in May 2015.
