The State League finals continued up at Mt Lofty on Saturday the 15th of September. The day provided great atmosphere with large crowds getting behind their teams which was great to see, the Division 1 Women and Men got the day off to a great start with Norwood defeating Mt Lofty in the Women and South Adelaide defeating Mt Lofty to take home the men’s title. The Reserve’s continued the exiting volleyball in to the afternoon seeing the Norwood Women defeat Mt Lofty and the South Adelaide Men defeat Mt Lofty in a couple of fantastic matches. The day concluded with two entertaining League finals, in the women we saw Mt Lofty defeat South Adelaide in a tough 4-setter.
