CELTICS won its first ever title in the Suva Volleyball Association competition yesterday.

They defeated Inner Circle 3-0 at the LICI multipurpose courts in Laucala Bay to win the premier challenge title.

Celtics then defended their title against Sharks and Jammers respectively, winning both games by 3-1.

Josaia Raketekete, the competition official of the FBC-sponsored association, said Celtics had improved a lot since competition began late last year.

He said they used to be in the super premier grade but poor form resulted in them dropping to the premier grade.

"They have improved a lot and will be a team to watch in the premier grade," Raketekete said.

"If Celtics continue with their winning form, they can be promoted to the super premier grade."

Delta retained the womens title beating Reef 3-0.

Meanwhile, Raketekete said the super premier grade challenge would not be contested any more for the rest of the round robin competition.

"We will just have the teams play a round robin competition and have them fight it out for points."

Results: Super premier: Cakau 3 Lions 0, Marist 3 Saints 0, Toba 3 Islander 0, Marist 3 Islander 0, Cakau 3 Toba 1, Lions 3 Small Brothers 0.

Premier: Jammer 3 Celtics 2, G2 3 Sharks 2, Mighty Heights 3 G2 0, Inner Circle 3 Jammers 2, Celtics 3 Inner Circle, Celtics 3 Sharks 1, Celtics 3 Jammers 1.

Womens: G2 2 Reef 1, Delta 2 Highlander 0, Delta 3 Reef 0.
