Georgia Morton : Bachelor of Environmental Planning (BEP)
Georgia Morton was first introduced to volleyball at intermediate school, when the team’s coach suggested she give it a go. Seven years later, Georgia plays outside hitter on court, and thrives on the game’s competitive atmosphere. She has played in several national tournaments, and in 2014 was the captain of the New Zealand Under-19 Junior Women’s volleyball team and competed in the Under-19 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship in Taipei. Georgia was born in Waihi and attended school in Whakatane, where she was a school prefect, a student council member, house captain, and – alongside volleyball - played hockey at a representative level. Georgia is now in her 4th and Final Year of study. 2017 was a busy year for Georgia both study and sporting. She plays club volleyball for Mauao which is a mount based club and they placed 3rd and New Zealand Club Nationals 2017. Georgia is also a keen hockey play and last year her Midlands u21 team became National Champions at New Zealand u21 championships. Over the summer period Georgia plays beach volleyball where her and her partner were able to place 2nd and both a challenger and Hamilton Grand slam, unfortunately her session fell short due to injury. Georgia really aims to focus largely on her study this year as she wants to be prepared for the work force. She will still be playing club but will be based with Hamilton Volleyball club and also is part of Prem varsity Hockey team.
