Text:6PM: In a match surging with tension and energy on the court Brisbane has this afternoon taken the A-Grade gold medal in Volleyball. Brisbane beat the Sydney Safe Sets team in a closely fought match, three sets to one. The teams gave very little away to each other in tactics and talent and the high powered play was maintained on both sides of the net to the bitter end. Both teams played at a consistently high level," observed tournament coordinator Tessa Siolo-Thompson. In the B-Grade final the Melbourne Spikers took gold, leaving silver to another Sydney Safe Sets team. The Melbourne Gum Nuts took bronze. And in a final filled with tension and drama the Melbourne Crisis tream finally overcame the spirited play of the Adelaide Spikers in a match that went five sets to take the C-Grade gold. Another mixed but mostly New Zealand team, the Mixed Lollies, won bronze. Daily News Staff - 15th March 2011
