Troon women clinched second place in the league stages of the Scottish Volleyball Championship when they defeated NLVC of North Lanarkshire at Prestwick Academy on Saturday.

They must now await the outcome of the last round of matches to see whether they will play Edinburgh or Jets in the semi final of the league play offs.

Troon were never bothered by relegation threatened NLVC as they ran out easy winners 25-12, 25-19, 25-17. The best for Troon on the day were Elaine Krawczyk and Jenny Ellis. The rest of the squad were O'Connor, Gow, Lyall, Morrish, Clayton and Bunten.

Troon second team women were in rampant form as they defeated Forrester Jets by 5 sets to 0 in the women's second division at home on Saturday. The progress in this young side from the start of the season has been astounding thanks in the main to their own dedication.

They were much too powerful and controlled for their much more experienced rivals.

The team of Pell, McCall, Grant, Robertson, Stevenson, Evans and Hair all contributed in their own way to a fine exhibition of volleyball.

Troon men playing at home gave an end of season performance against bottom of the table Paisley Trailblazers on Saturday going down by 5 sets to 0. A season which at one stage looked like ending in promotion triumph has now ended in mid table ordinariness.

Troon just could not match Paisley's desire or control and there were no individual successes in the Ayrshire men's ranks.

The team was McPate, MacConnachie, McMurdo, Nair, Relly, Cree, Houston and Cruise.

Nair was in action on the Sunday along with other Belmont Academy boys who train at Troon Volleyball Club in the semi finals of the Scottish under 19 championships. Even with a fully fit side it was going to be a tall order for Belmont against South Ayrshire but Graeme Cassells probably Belmonts key player was missing through injury and Belmont went down convincingly by 25-13, 25-19 to their very good local rivals.

They played a great game against the powerful Glasgow Mets side in the third and fourth place play off losing very narrowly 27-25,25-23. Nair along with Tait and Lynn were the best for Belmont. Troon volleyball club women Lisa Evans, Hannah Grant and Steph McCall were in the Marr side which comprehensively defeated East Lothian Falcons to go through to the Scottish under 19 women's cup final at the end of April where they will meet local rivals South Ayrshire.
