Even though all schools take two weeks off over the Easter holiday, Scottish Volleyball had four schools in attendance at this year’s national Cup Finals weekend, thereby showcasing the best of high school volleyball in the country. In the boys’ competition, Woodfarm high school took on Queensferry high school, with the school from the East taking the win 2-1.

It was a thrilling start to the cup finals weekend on the brand new Taraflex, and all involved had an excellent time.
