Defending champions Progressive took an early lead in the 2019 Goddard Enterprises Limited Division One volleyball race which began on Monday night at the Wildey Gymnasium.

However, while the Barbados Bearings/W. Gittens Landscaping/Crumbz Bakery team rose from 12-18 in the third set to dim All Stars 25-18, 25-18, 26-24, the interest was the jostling among the teams which would normally finish down the field.

Foundation United, who had ended last season in the cellar with no wins, have increased their victories by 100 per cent after rebounding from a first set’s loss to former champions Chargers to take the game 13-25, 25-16, 27-25, 25-19.

National high jumper Nathan Crawford-Wallis and Rajae Alleyne were jumping out of their shoes to blast the ball over the low flying Chargers’ blockers. Olympics judoka Kyle Maxwell and former Barbados captain and setter Alain London gave a low calibre Chargers some ammunition to fire at Foundation. (KB)
