Guam - Our men's national baseball team walked away with the gold medal at this year's Micronesian Games with the 14-6 win over the CNMI. Guam played 25 innings of baseball in less than 24-hours in their quest for the gold medal. Team Guam is now the king of the diamond after chasing gold for 12-years.

In women's fast pitch softball our women's team fell short of taking home the gold losing to the Republic of the Marshall Islands 13-4. Guam led 4-0 early in the game but lost that lead in the 4th inning and couldn't put up any more runs having to settle for the silver medal.

Turning to women's volleyball our ladies team avenged their only loss of the games to Yap in the finals. Team Guam defeated Yap in straight sets 25-13, 25-15, 25-16.

Women basketball jumped to a 21 point lead at the half 37-14 and cruised through the second half on their way to Guam's third gold medal in team events for the day. RMI reeled off 8 fast break points off Guam missed shots but Guam answered by closing out the game with six unanswered points for a 77-31 victory.  Guam wins the gold medal match with the 46 point margin and unblemished record.

On the men's side Guam led 50-34 at the half against the Marshall Islands and continued its up-tempo pace to secure the gold in the men's basketball championship round. Guam led 70-44 after 3 quarters of play behind their outside shooting as they cruised to the 88-50 win.

In a packed Pohnpei gym, Guam had a tough time shaking off a determined home team in men's volleyball. Guam men's volleyball gave up a set to Pohnpei during the gold medal match but kept their undefeated record intact winning the match in four sets 25-21, 25-17, 18-25 and 25-15.
