Murwillumbah High School’s senior boys volleyball team has finished first in the North Coast region. They will represent the North Coast region at the NSW knock-out competition in Sydney, on the first week back in term three.

‘This group of individuals is exceptional,’ said Coach and teacher Carl Marshall.

‘They’ve been training twice a week every week of every term since Year 8, and they’re now in Year 12.

‘Their commitment to the game and to each other is wonderful, and huge success has followed, despite the fact that they get almost no match practice because there are no volleyball competitions for them to compete in between Coffs Harbour and Brisbane.’

The school has a high number of representatives at regional and state level across a variety of sports and a high profile in the Arts despite its status as a small regional high school of 430 students.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Good on ’em! I used to love playing volleyball. Great game. I wish them lots of luck, which it sounds like they don’t even need.

  2. Congratulations to team and coach! Their success bears out the imperative of dedicated hard work and great team spirit. Best wishes towards further challenges.
