Young Achievers Volleyball club was once again the dominant force on the Demerara volleyball circuit after downing their counterparts from the Vanguard Volleyball club in straight sets in the final of the Demerara Volleyball Association (DVA) Men’s ‘B’ division playoff played at the National Gymnasium, Sunday evening.

The duel was an interesting battle with Achievers blocking the occasional burst by Vanguard to take the final 25 – 20, 25 – 15, 25 – 19.

Both finalists had earlier earned contrasting wins with Achievers easing past Bank of Guyana in straight sets while Vanguard endured a hard-fought five-set battle against arch-rivals Castrol before eventually winning by  three sets to Castrol’s two.

Achievers, through their continued dominance, carted off all but one of the individual prizes as Pooran Ethwaru, Selwyn Collier and Gungav Shivsankar copped the best setter, best receiver and best spiker awards while Ryan Munroe also of Achievers was adjudged the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament.

Daniel Benjamin, however, of Vanguard earned the best blocker award which is probably the most cherished in the sport.

The winning trophy and individual awards were sponsored by the National Sports Commission (NSC).
