For most of the club another season has now come and gone, leaving us with sore bodies and a desire to celebrate with a big presentation night before possibly getting in a few sneaky tournaments before getting ready to do it all again next year.

But, for our division 2 blue men and division 1 women the week in week out grind has resulted in their chance carry the Renegades name into FINALS GLORY! It's also given the rest of us the chance to go nuts Renegades style by getting dressed up in red, grabbing the most annoying noise making device we own and dragging ourselves out to the state volleyball centre to chant Renegades chants and cheer our fellow club members onto victory!

The season so far...

We're just over half way through the state league season and as usual there are some Renegades teams dominating their division... and a couple of other's who are looking forward to next season.

Continuing their trend of dominance over the last 4 seasons which has seen them net 3 2nds and 1 premiership, the division 1 girls have once again snagged top position and look set to keep getting better as they build up for the finals. This weekend is going to see a battle to keep top spot as they take on the percentage challenged Monash University at 3:40. Monash vs Melbourne fighting for position number 1 on the ladder, does it get any bigger?  Well, yes I suppose it does, but it's still pretty good.

It was a successful first outing for Renegades teams in the 2006 Victorian Volleyball League with our 7 teams notching up 5 wins.

Our girls teams especially rose to the challenge of last minute player losses across every division to drop just 1 set for the day between the 3 teams.

Renegades doing it on the beach

As indoor players we all have a love/hate relationship with beach volleyball (some leaning more towards one extreme than others). Sure, it's nice to get outdoors into the sunshine, expererience a bit of a breeze on your face and feel the sand between your toes... But with constant sunburn, uncontrollable balls flying around in the wind and the energy sapping sand making your legs feel like concrete the relationship between indoor playerand the beach can be a tumultuous one.

But it seems a few of our Renegades have pushed past these hurdles and excelled on the beach this year. Here's just a few highlights from my lunchtime perusal of the beach results for the season to date
