Volleyball finals serve up close contests

THE Warwick Volleyball Association finals produced two tight affairs as the winners were crowned on Monday night.

NADS took out the men's grand final, three-sets-to-one, but it was the mixed match which threw up the closest contest.

In a see sawing battle, Reloaded won the first set 21-11 before No Pressure hit back with a 22-20 win in the second set.

Reloaded reclaimed their lead with a 21-14 victory in the third set, but No Pressure stormed home.

After winning the fourth set 21-19, they held their nerve to take the fifth set 21-14 - and the mixed title.

In the ladies final, Da Fruit were too good for Gumballs, winning 21-8, 21-19 and 21-19 to claim victory in straight sets.

Warwick Volleyball Association sportsmaster Kerri Fitch said it was an entertaining night of action.

"All the grand finals were enthralling," Fitch said.

"Da Fruit was just too good in the ladies final but the men's final was a nail biter and the mixed was even all the way through.

"It was a really good night of volleyball, it was what you want grand finals to be."

Fitch said next season would begin in February, with new players and teams welcome.

"We've got four teams in each grade (ladies, men's and mixed) at the moment," she said.

"We're hoping to grow but come February we'll go with what we've got.

"If we've got more teams, great.

"If not, we'll still have a good competition."
