THE Blue flag fly high in an all Marist final during the Namadi Volleyball tournament at Namadi Heights yesterday.

The Blues led by Sakiusa Boletawa edged Marist Red 2-0 to clinch the title in an electrifying final, witnessed by the Namadi community. The Red team had no answer to contain the powerful spiking force of Marist Blue.

They edged Toba One 2-0 in the semi-final while Marist Red defeated Magic Gold 2-0 in the other top four clash.

Suva Volleyball official Iliesa Raketekete said they were pleased with the response from the community in Namadi.

"We have seen that the game keep on improving in every circuit we organise. This is the third circuit and we are so happy to see the response from the community in here," he said.

"Marist Blue beat Marist Red in the men's final. And I think this is the first time for most people here in this community (in Namadi) to watch a volleyball tournament like this."

Twenty one men's teams and seven women's team graced the event at Namadi Heights.

"We are organising this kind of tournaments to help our clubs revive the sport in their respective communities. We also want to show the various communities what their sons and daughters are doing in Suva every Saturdays during our weekly competition," he said.

Raketekete said they hoped to attract the Namadi community support in the future. Namadi is represented by the Mighty Heights volleyball club in the Suva Volleyball Association.
