Nouse verdict:

A personal favourite sport of mine, volleyball is a sport often overlooked by many. At the College Varsity earlier this year, York’s college sides put in valiant performances against their Durham opponents, and last year the University’s teams had mixed results, with one win and two defeats. Looking at the Black and Gold’s chances of winning this year however is a tough one. Lancaster have strong sides playing higher up in the BUCS Leagues than York, and in my opinion a win for the White Rose would likely be one of the underdog stories of this year’s competition.
