Both of the South Island Junior Secondary Schools Finals saw a Nelson school take on a Christchurch school at Saxton Arena in Nelson.
First it was the girls turn with St Margaret's College taking on Nelson College for Girls in the final. Nelson College seemed to have control in the first set, but St Margaret's came storming back with a 7 point service run to take the set 25-22, in the second set St Margaret's kept their composure to secure a more comfortable score line, taking the set 25-19 and the match 2-0, and take their first ever Division 1 title.
Next up was the Boys, and Nelson College got off to a great start steam-rolling their way past Shirley Boys High in the first set 25-11. Shirley were able to compose themselves in the 2nd set and put up a solid fight, however Nelson College were able to battle through to take the set 25-22 and the match 2-0. This is Nelson College's 3rd title in 4 years.
