Marist reigns in Suva

MARIST now have bragging rights in the Suva Volleyball Association competition.

They won the Super Premier title and the challenge title in the Digicel-sponsored league yesterday at the FMF Gymnasium.

Competition official Iliesa Raketekete said Marist defeated all their challengers and then were the best placed team in the league competition.

"Today (yesterday), they beat Drifters and Mighty Heights to stamp their name on the challenge title and then since they had the most wins in the league competition and the most points, they won the league title as well," he said.

"Celtics beat Mighty Heights 3-0 to be placed third behind Cakau who were second to Marist in the league."

Marist won $400 for finishing at the top of the pile at the end of the competition.

"In the women's competition, challenge titleholders, Brewers lost the title to Delta and then Delta lost the title to Reef.

"Reef tried to win the title for many months but couldn't beat Delta and then Brewers came and beat Delta.

"So after that Delta reclaimed the title but lost it as easily as they won it."

Raketekete said all the teams would now turn their attention to the Marist Volleyball Tournament that would be held later this month.
