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

respectable third, and the womens team did one better finishing second.

aka Cats stay sober in order for Gold!

"Go Cats!" was all you could hear during warm up at this year's Southern Uni Games! And we did go... all the way to the gold medal playoffs, unscarred. After a dissapointing first game loss in 5 sets to Monash, we cruised past all competitors, slaughtering them in 3 sets.
