YEAR six pupils from Langtoft, Pinchbeck East and Weston Hills primary schools were jumping for joy at a volleyball festival held in Crowland.

Organised by Agilitas Sports, the University Academy Holbeach Crowland campus event saw eight teams of two to four players from the three schools battle it out in a round-robin competition.

The winners were Pinchbeck East’s ‘B’ team with a cracking score of 120 points – and they will now get the chance to represent the area at a county volleyball competition.

Langtoft A and Weston Hills B were tied for second place after both bagged 109 points each.

Adam Caress, assistant school games organiser for Agilitas, said: “The quality of the volleyball was excellent and the enthusiasm shown by the students was fantastic.”
