Paragons and Stoneville regained their female and male titles in the Antigua and Barbuda Amateur Volleyball Association (ABAVA) league over the weekend.
Paragons, who ended their campaign undefeated with a 6-0 record, came back from two sets down to edge out powerhouse team, Jets, 3-2, in the female category.
With Jets taking the first two sets; 26-28,23-25, all hope seemed to be lost for the defending champions but the Paragons who feature a number of national players rallied to take the third and fourth set; 25-17, 25-21 to push to a final fifth set.
The champions rode that momentum straight into the deciding set and edged out Jets, 15-11.
Stoneville secured their second straight title as they handed former champions, Enforcers, a 3-1 defeat.
After taking the first set, 25-11 the champions faltered in the second losing 21-25, giving Enforcers some much needed confidence.
That confidence would however be cut short as the champions, led by national player, Adrian Constant, grabbed both the third and fourth set, 25-21, 25-17.
The top four teams in each category will now focus their attention on the President’s Cup. (Carlena Knight)
