28.07.2008 – Graham Croker

The decision by the women’s volleyball clubs at the University of Technology, Sydney and the University of Sydney to enter a combined team in the National League paid dividends when they won the 2008 title on Sunday.

UTS-SU were extended to five sets by University Blues from Victoria before winning the national title 3-2 at the Sydney University Sports and Aquatic Centre.

Having finished the season with the minor premiership, it was sweet revenge for UTS-SU, who dipped out in the gold medal match against the Blues for the inaugural 2007 title.

Volleyball Queensland took out the bronze medal, with Adelaide Centacare Lions finishing fourth and Western Australia finishing fifth.
