INNER Circle dethroned Sharks to clinch the Premier challenge title in the Suva Volleyball Association competition on Saturday.

The Suvavou-based side beat the holders 3-0 in the first challenge of the day at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

Inner Circle won 25-17, 25-21, 25-23 to reclaim the title they held only once before.

In the second challenge match, Toba faced Inner Circle but fell 25-17, 25-18, 25-16 to lose the match by 0-3.

In the Super Premier grade, Marist maintained its unbeaten streak and extended its lead at the top of the points table.

They won by default over Saints and then convincingly beat Lions 3-0 in the Digicel- and FBC-sponsored competition.

Association secretary Sam Rabuku said Marist now led the competition with 15 points.

"Celtics are second with 11 points, Lions and Saints both have six points while Jammers are at the bottom of the table with zero points," he said.

"Inner Circle leads the Premier grade closely followed by G2."
