Redskins crowned 2019 volleyball champions

MASERU – Volleyball heavyweights Redskins were crowned 2019 Metropolitan LVA League champions in both the men’s and women’s sections after the fourth and final league tournament held last weekend at Police Training College (PTC).

Redskins edged Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) to the title in both competitions.
The final league tournament began on November 9 and it ended in a celebration for Redskins Volleyball Club despite defeats to Lesotho Mounted Police in the men’s competition and LDF in the women’s section on the final day of action.

Redskins only needed to reach the finals to secure the 2019 Lesotho Volleyball Association (LVA) crown and they did so convincingly.
Ultimately, Redskins won the title with a whopping total of 60 points in both the men’s and women’s leagues while LDF finished runners up with respective totals of 56 and 54 points.
The Metropolitan LVA League is divided into four ‘mini-tournaments’ that are held over the course of the year and teams collect points from each round.
The first mini-tournament was played in March in Leribe and, eight months later, a national champion has been crowned.

“We have a league that is sub-divided into four tournaments and today we have come to the end of the last tournament where we summed up the total number of points attained from the previous tournaments and the team with most points has been crowned as the champions,” LVA general secretary Sebolelo Ntlhokoe said.

Ntlhokoe also lauded the improved performances of the teams this season but lamented the decreased number of clubs that took part in the league.
This year’s number of seven teams in the Metropolitan LVA League was down from last year’s eight.
“The teams’ attendance is worse compared to the recent years because we hosted only seven male and female teams,” Ntlhokoe said.
“In the female category we started the tournament with eight teams but we came to the finish line with only seven teams.”
