Tomorrow the volleyball Nationals begin and teams from all over the country will be coming to the city to participate. Saint Catherine's Academy and Ladyville Technical High School are the Belize District female and male champs and to hype up the games, a motorcade was held today. 7news was there to talk to the champs before the games begin.

Salome Tillet, Principal of SCA
"They are excited but they also know that all the teams are good teams are there. The competition will be stiff so they know they have to bring their A game because every other team coming wants the championship too."

"They also have been working really hard. They enjoy volleyball it is fun for them."

Allyana Musa, SCA Team Member/ Belize District Champions
"We are all excited about it not nervous but we will just play hard and do our best. We train like all year round for this so I feel we are prepared."

Kelsey Balderamos, Team SCA Coach
"The competition in the districts has defiantly improved over past couple of years so we are definitely looking out for that but we are pretty confident that we can continue the streak we are going for win number 9 and I think we can do it won't be easy there will be some nice games that we are going to play but I think we have practiced enough and we are ready."

"This year makes 24 years that we have won the Central Division and if we win this it will make 9 so we have 8 winning streaks so far."

Jalen Manzanero, Ladyville Technical High school Team Member/Belize District Male Champions
"We are a little bit nervous but we have confidence in our team."

Sahar Vasquez, reporter
"You have to beat which team to play in the Nationals?"

Jalen Manzanero
"We played SJC. We played them three times best of three. The games went to 5 sets but they were good games."

Sahar Vasquez
"Has this school ever won Nationals before?"

Jalen Manzanero
"Yes in 2011 we won and they placed third in the Nationals last year. Hopefully, we could place first in the Nationals this time."

The volleyball Nationals will be held at the Belize Elementary gymnasium on Friday and Saturday. The public is encouraged to go out and take in the games.

SCA Girls Dominate Volleyball Championship

On Thursday we told you about NSSSA volleyball nationals. The epic final took place right here in Belize City and history was made as Saint Catherine's Academy won their 9th consecutive National championship. SCA is the first team male or female to win so many titles back to back, but as one of their coaches said it was not an easy tournament. They had to fight for the gold.

Amber Marin, SCA Team Member/ 2017 National Female Volleyball Champions
"It honestly feels great. It is great to know that our hard work and practice, running at the track, lifting weights, volleyball practice even when we have countless homework to do its all paid off in the national tournament."

Kelsey Balderamos, SCA Team Coach
"This year it was very competitive we had a lot of the teams stepping up their game from last year. It wasn't a walk in the park. The girls held their own against the other teams. We did good we brought our best games to our nationals."

"They never take an offseason, they never take a break. Even if they if it is one day a week we get them into play some ball and have some fun. So that is the result you see on the court. They know each other well. They know who is going to play what move. It is just practice cohesiveness and practice."

"I am definitely proud you know there is always that little voice in the back of our head saying what if they don't do it but you just have to have faith that we have put in the work and we have what it takes to get win number 9."

The boys also played a good competition with Toledo Community College placing first in a tight game against Ladyville Technical High school who came in second. Muffles High school placed second for the females.

On Monday we told you about the NSSSA volleyball national tournament. But, we made an error naming the competitors in the female competition. We reported that it was Saint Catherines Academy against Muffles for the finals when it was actually SCA against Stann Creek Ecumenical High School. SCA emerged victorious. We apologize for the mix-up. Muffles Bobcats won 3rd place in the male category.
