18 May 2013 For the second year in a row, the Pelkhil volleyball team fell to the Kelki onslaught. In 2012, our team had been thoroughly thrashed by a well-trained outfit from Kelki in just 2 sets. This year the thrashing was much less severe although we again lost in 3 straight sets.  While our team of 2012 had been a rag-tag team of players from basketball, athletics and football, this year we had several regular volleyball players and a bunch of other pretty good players to support them.

All the same, Kelki’s team was more skilled overall, better coordinated and also played more consistently. Pelkhil lost the first two sets relatively easily. The third set was far closer and Pelkhil even led for a while 20-19. But a series of errors at the end of the set lost the match.

The girls also put up a good showing against the girls from Motithang HSS. Again, the consistency of the MHSS girls proved the downfall of our team who lost in straight sets.

All the students regretted the almost total lack of preparation that had been put into volleyball this year. The 3 weeks prior to the volleyball fixtures had all been spent with the Unit Tests, Basketball tourney and finally the Athletics Tournament which gave the team almost no time to prepare as a team.
