Volleyball squad prove too strong for rivals

The University of East London’s women’s volleyball team once again proved their aspirations for promotion to the BUCS Premier League.

The UEL squad continued their dominance of the South East 1A League with a convincing three-set win over Kent at SportsDock.

The game started with an amazing run of 18 consecutive points by UEL, with postgraduate student Rebecca Westphal serving.

The home team wrapped up the set 25-2 and started the second set very well again, leading 16-3, and closing it quickly at 25-4.

Their serving again proved too strong to handle for the visiting team, giving UEL many direct points and counter-attack opportunities.

The third and final set underlined UEL’s domination and, with many unforced errors commited by Kent, the hosts claimed overall victory after closing the third set out at 25-5.

It was another strong display of high level volleyball from UEL’s women, who overwhelmed their Kent rivals in every element.

Carrie Beck was UEL’s best blocker with two block kills, while captain Alex Vajdova scored the most points with 15 as six serve aces from Beth Gunter rounded off the substantial win.
