Renegades off to a blazing start in State League

04 May; Alice Matson


The Melbourne University Renegades Volleyball Club are off to a strong start in the 2018 season, with 10 senior teams entered into the Victorian Volleyball League.

Coming off the back of a highly successful 2017 season, with seven teams making the finals series, resulting in gold for the men’s Premier team, and silver in the men’s Division 3 and women’s Premier and Reserves teams, the Renegades have titles to defend and strive for in 2018.

The Renegades had an impressive start to the year, with the Warrnambool Seaside Volleyball Tournament serving as a warm-up for the State League season. The Premier teams pulled off the first men’s and women’ double win in four years, which taken alongside a win in the women’s Division 1, showed the Club’s dominance and potential for the upcoming season.

Despite entering a younger team in 2018 and managing the loss of a number of key players from last year’s winning line-up, men’s Premier captain, Michael Cirillo commented that the team like to think they’re ‘always in a position to have a successful season’, and that he can definitely see them making a run for finals. Consistency and an emphasis on staying focused on the task at hand will be key for the side going forward. The side are currently sitting 3rd on the league ladder, with four wins and a loss to date.

The Premier women have had a similar start, also sitting on four wins and a loss, and are currently occupying 2nd place on the ladder, in what looks to be a strong position moving forward. In round six, both the men and women play against the Phantoms in Bendigo.

The performance of the club is supported by a strong culture and depth, shown through the number of teams entered into the senior competition this year, as well as the involvement of a number of junior teams. A strong social base developed through Tin Alley Volleyball competition, which grew to 40 teams in 2017, also helps provide the club with developing players. Having grown up within the Club, Cirillo stated that ‘we have always been a very hard working club, whether it be from the committee members or the players’, which is a statement that resonates through the strength of the club at all levels.

Results, fixtures and ladders for each of the Renegade’s teams can be viewed online here.
