Marist retains title

MARIST, Islanders and Delta retained their respective titles in the Suva Volleyball Association competition on Saturday.

Despite missing a few key players such as Saki Boletawa and Fereti Wilson, Marist held on to the super premier title with victories over Toba and Drifters.

Islanders overcame challenges from Lionz and Jammers to keep the premier title for another week while Delta beat Reef to retain the women's title.

Josaia Raketekete, competition official of the FBC-sponsored association, said they were lucky to have their competition played in the Vodafone Arena for a change.

"We usually have our competition at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts outside," he said.

"And it's open air so the sunlight and the heat exhausts the players faster.

"We are thankful to the Fiji Sports Council for allowing us to use the Vodafone Arena — the players enjoyed playing in the shade with proper seats and resting places."

Raketekete said the respective title holders were becoming stronger.

"They have been holding onto the title for many weeks now and it will take a really strong and well-prepared team to defeat them."
