Guam - The Harvest Christian Academy Eagles are now boy's high school volleyball champions after defeating the Simon Sanchez Sharks in 3 sets at the St. John's Gym in Upper Tumon. Harvest coasted through the double-elimination playoffs and was waiting to see who would meet them in this year's title game.

Sanchez made their way to the championship game after fighting their way through the losers bracket. Last year's champions Sanchez, found themselves back in the big show to meet the team they beat last year in 2 straight sets but under some tougher circumstances this time around. In order to repeat as champs they had to beat the Eagles twice to do so.

The first set went to the Sharks 25-23 after Gavin Naburn worked his magic serving, something that gave his team problems throughout the set. 

Things quickly turned around in the 2nd set when league MVP Miles Herron and company took advantage of Sanchez's defense, which seemed out of place at times. Harvest took the set 25-16.

With over 500 fans in the house (with most of them being from Harvest), the Eagles fed off the crowd's energy and jumped out to a 13-5 lead and never looked back eventually taking the set 25-17 along with the school's first-ever boy's high school volleyball championship title.
