Similar to volleyball, tripleball has students serving and making passes, there is just the extra element of someone throwing a ball into play to allow for a better chance at a good pass and a sustained rally.

Theresetta has a big 5/6 class this year with 26 students so they put three teams into the tournament fighting for their chance to claim victory.

All three teams played hard and worked really well together.

Two Theresetta teams made it into the final after semi final games against one Stettler team and one Alix team.

The two Knights teams battled hard against each other, the first two sets were both close and with each team winning one, it meant they had to go to a third set to determine the winner.

In the end team “Synergy” which they called themselves all day, came out as the champions.

In the end, many sets were played, multiple servers were made and students ended the day with as big of smiles on their faces as they started with, which must mean it was a great day.
