Guam - It took 5 sets for the George Washington Gecko's to be crowned boys high school volleyball champions. The Gecko's faced a very tough Okkodo Bulldog team that entered the game losing the 2 previous matches between the schools.

With both teams heading into the title game of the double elimination format of play the Bulldogs had to beat the Gecko's twice to dethrone the defending champs. Okkodo set up the second match after handing the Gecko's their first loss 25-23, 21-25, 25-23. After a timeout the Geckos looked composed and ready to get the final match underway. G.W jumped out to an early lead and never looked back taking the first set 25-16.

GW rode the momentum of the first set and took the 2nd set 25-21 for this year's title, for their back-to-back championship trophy.
