CEESA HS Girls Volleyball Tournament in Belgrade

Last week (May 20-21, 2022) a friendly CEESA HS Girls Volleyball tournament took place in Belgrade, Serbia. It was an event where 22 NOVA girls participated, comprising  3 NOVA HS Girls Volleyball teams (White, Yellow, Gray), after 2 years of no CEESA sport events.

The trip was filled with fun and joy, despite the intense game schedule. Thus, we testified to strong team spirit, dedicated play, and excellent volleyball overall. After 2 long days of games and cheering for each other, with lots of “plot twists” in the qualifiers, it was the third place game that stole the spotlight and the interest of the audience, prompting a mixture of emotions, as NOVA White and NOVA Yellow teams competed against each other. Seemingly short but extensively intense, we watched 2 sets of an equal game with NOVA girls playing to the best of their skills and volleyball technique, with team spirit and commitment to play to the last atom of their strength. In a close cut till the very last point, NOVA Yellow girls arrived victorious, winning the bronze medal. 

During the tournament all 3 NOVA teams experienced support, respect and praise by all other teams and coaches for their unity, skills, cohesion, and commitment. The girls returned home safely and with no injuries, enriched with many new friendships and excellent impressions, already looking forward to the next chance to practice and play.

Congratulations to our girls!
