THE Jammers volleyball club jammed the University of the South Pacific Islands Volleyball Association club competition with an upset win over Chips at the National Netball Centre last Saturday.
Led by inspirational skipper Sam Steven, who was on fire with a 3-2 victory, the premier division made a strong comeback to pull the remaining three sets after training 0-2.
Steven combined well with Trevor Lenati and Apisai Ravai to deliver the power spike for the newcomers.
The Chips side missed the experience of Apenisa Saukuru and Apisalome Varea during the game.
USPIVA secretary Mereia Belo said it was an unexpected result in the super premier division.
"It's an upset, Jammers are the new comers and they are making their debut in the super premier division in this game. For them to beat Chips our champion team is an upset result. It was a strong but very interesting game," she said.
"This shows how competitive the competition is at this level and the anticipation is a lot higher for Jammer in the future."
