Volleyball stars earn victories

TIN Can Bay P-10 State School physical education teacher Dave Arthur is passionate about volleyball and helping his students fulfil their potential.

This explains why Arthur has been overjoyed following the recent achievements of four former Tin Can Bay students - Chevy Rowlands, Kieren Lancini, Harry Long and Dan McAulife.

All four players sharpened their volleyball skills under Arthur’s watchful eyes at Tin Can Bay and since graduating from year 10, have only gone on to reach new heights.

Rowlands and Lancini have returned to Tin can Bay heroes after winning Gold at the Queensland State Secondary School Volleyball Titles in Brisbane last week.

Playing for Wide Bay, the pair was instrumental in helping their team march to the final, eventually producing the gold medal.

Lancini added to his gold medal by gaining state selection, meaning he will line up later this year for national competition.

Meanwhile, Long and McAuliffe have played in selection trials for association volleyball and have earned places on a Queensland team due for battle in the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships later this year in Perth.

“They don’t go to Tin Can Bay anymore but I follow their progress proudly,” Arthur said.
