SHARKS are the new holders of the Premier Challenge title in the Suva Volleyball Association competition.

They clinched the title from Mighty Heights who had won the first challenge 3-2 against G2 at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

Brimming with confidence Mighty Heights went into the second challenge where Sharks turned the tables on the holders to win 3-0.

Sharks then overcame Islanders 3-2 in the final men's challenge match last Saturday to keep the title for this week.

Meanwhile, in the women's competition, Delta retained the challenge title with a 3-1 victory over Islanders.

Competition official Iliesa Raketekete commended Digicel Fiji for supporting the association.

"Digicel sponsored new uniforms for the officials of the competition and provided tents for us to use during the competition day," he said.

"The tents are helpful to the officials when it's raining or when the heat from the sun is too hot to bear."

Raketekete said the sponsorship was helping the association move towards professionalism in the sport.
