Volleyball: 2022 Men’s National Championship: Eighth Title For Camp Ithier VBC

Must Read

The 2021/2022 Men’s National Volleyball Championship ended last Saturday, October 15, at the Pandit Sahadeo Gymnasium in Vacoas with the expected coronation of Camp Ithier VBC.  Deepak Augnoo’s team defeated defending champion Hole in the Hinds Sharks 3-0 to give the Eastern team its eighth national championship title.

Camp Ithier VBC was assured of the title since the day before because AS Quatre-Bornes, the only team still in the race for the title, had conceded two sets against Curepipe Starlight SC when it should have won at least 3-1 and hoped for a 3-0 defeat of Camp Ithier VBC against Trou aux Biches Sharks to be crowned.

Thus the 3-2 (21-25; 25-16; 25-27; 25-21; 15-12) victory of AS Quatre-Bornes over Curepipe Staright SC could only assure the second place to AS Quatre-Bornes. “When you want to win the league it is important to win against the main contenders for the title, we had conceded defeat against Camp Ithier and that’s when we lost the league,” said Evans Sauteur, captain of AS Quatre-Bornes.

Camp Ithier VBC pinned their eighth national championship title in style. Facing the Trou aux Biches Sharks team which is composed of several top players such as Gilbert Alfred, Stephan Moonisamy, Akash Doobraz and Allan Esther, coach Deepak Augnoo had to expect a tough game before lifting the trophy.

Jason Radoo, Alvaro Bonnelangue, Vissarlen Thylamay, Daren Isnard, Steward Joseph, Ravish Naiko and Bernard Thomas among others lived up to their coach’s ambitions and did the job in three sets (25-23; 27-25; and 25-19).

“This is the eighth national championship title for Camp Ithier. The first title was in 2009 when I was a player-coach. Facing a great opponent we had to finish the championship in apotheosis. My players listened and the reward is there,” said Deepak Augnoo, coach of Camp Ithier VBC.
