MARIST successfully retained their Super Premier challenge title while the Premier challenge title changed hands in the Suva Volleyball Association weekly competition.

Marist beat challengers Cakau and Celtics 3-0 respectively to keep the title for another week.

In the Premier challenge match, holders Inner Circle fell 0-3 to G2 in the first challenge match of the Digicel-sponsored competition at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

New holders G2 then brushed aside Jammers by the same scoreline.

Delta retained the women's title when they beat Reef 3-2 in a tight affair.

Competition official Ratu Iliesa Raketekete said the challenge winners walked away with some prizemoney.

"Marist won $300, G2 won $500 and Delta won $200 thanks to our sponsors FBC and Digicel," he said.

Meanwhile, the Suva teams won over their opponents in the friendly matches which served as a build-up to the Easter Championships next weekend.

In the men's game, Suva Mirchi beat Nasinu 3-0 while in the women's match Suva Black beat Qauia by the same score.

"Because of their efforts in the friendly matches today (yesterday), the teams got some free credit from Digicel.

"Each Suva player will get $30 Digicel top-up while the Nasinu and Qauia players will get Digicel $10 top-up."
