BOSTON White and Sparks were crowned the new champions in the men's and women's grade, respectively of the Raiwaqa Basketball Association Super League competition yesterday.
Boston White defeated Bryce 48-34 in the men's showdown at the Eds Court in Raiwaqa to win the $500 prize money.
In the women's final, Grace Taito's Chosen was unable to overcome Sparks which blazed to a 33-18 win. Sparks won $300.
Match coordinator Patrick Kamsoo said the six weeks long Super League competition was used as their preparation for the Easter Championship which will be held in two weeks time.
He said they were impressed with the standard showcased by the players affiliated to the association during this competition.
"I think the fitness level has gone up as well as the skill level. The teams are able to play more competitively and showcase a much better performance than seen in the past," Kamsoo said.
"It's a great build-up for the Easter Championship where we are planning to field six men's and eight women's teams this year."
Kamsoo said the teams would be doing their own trainings in the remaining days to brush up on weaknesses for the annual Easter meet.
Meanwhile Macpacers and Lady Birds won the Super League men's and women's grade, respectively last year.
