THE Savusavu Tribal women's volleyball team has secured a spot at next year's Marist 7s tournament's volleyball competitions after winning the Gaunavou Women's Volleyball competitions over the weekend.

The women's volleyball competition was held in conjunction with the Fiji Bitter Savusavu Sevens.

Team captain Neomai Taole said the side was made up of unemployed young ladies from Savusavu who played regular club games. Taole said two members from their sister club, Fusion, joined the team for this competition which saw 12 womens' teams enter the competition.

She added they faced tough challenge from teams in Labasa who participated in the tournament.

"We played against arch rivals Naqere Flames in the semi-finals which was more of a final because of the strong competition between both teams," she said.

"The win has enabled our side to compete in the Marist 7s tournament in June next year and the team is excited about this with a vigorous training program in place."

Taole said they would start preparing for the tournament soon.
