CAKAU are the new holders of the Super Premier challenge title in the Digicel Suva Volleyball league competition.

They beat holders Mighty Heights 3-1 in the last challenge match of the day yesterday at the LICI Multi-Purpose Courts in Laucala Bay.

Mighty Heights had won the title from previous holders Sharks 3-1 earlier in the morning.

Sharks won the title last week when they won by default over traditional champions Marist.

The Premier title also changed hands when holders Drifters lost to Tamavua Bulls 1-3 in the first challenge match yesterday.

The Bulls then worked really hard to defend the title against Islanders 3-2.

Competition official Iliesa Raketekete said the competition level among the title holders increased after Marist lost the title.

"Marist is a hard team to beat and their only loss came by default," he said.

"So now, the challengers are putting more effort in their games because they know they have a chance to win the challenge titles and the prizes that come with it."

The competition marked the end of round three and round four will begin next weekend.

Suva is the reigning champions of men's volleyball in the country after winning the Vulaca, Easter and the Vanua championships titles.
