Vision Volleyball Camp (VVC) became the fifth team to win the women’s title of the NSSF Volleyball League and in the process ended Ndejje Elites’ two year reign.

VVC defeated Ndejje 3-1 in the best of five series but had to fight tooth and nail to come out 3-2 victors in game four. “The girls fought a good fight, it was obvious from the onset that Ndejje were not going to go down without a fight,” said VVC coach Hannington Nsubuga.
“But we were stronger mentally, and it was evident in the crucial moments of the game,” he added.

Ndejje had the better service that seemed to trouble VVC and they duly took the first set 25-22.

VVC’s opposite attacker Peace Busingye started to bite, setter Viola Akisa composed herself while Josephine Nammanda, Vivian Adeke were all spot-on with their cover.

Blocker Irene Adeke and Joan Nabuuto made vital points off the block, as VVC won sets two and three 25-18, 25-17 respectively.

VVC almost gave it away as contentment took its toll and Ndejje won the fourth 25-23.

The tie-breaker offered little with VVC establishing a commanding 8-4 lead, that shortly after grew to a championship point at 14-10. Nabuuto went to serve for the match point. Her target was Saidat Nnungi who butted the ball for VVC to win 15-10.

“Inexperience cost us the title, but we will return next season a much stronger side,” Ndejje coach Johnson Kawenyera said.

For a club started just this year, VVC’s league crown was a staggring ninth title in 11 finals. In the men’s final, KAVC made sure it goes to the wire after they defeated Sport-S 3-2 in game four of the series.
