When the curtains came down it was the GC Foster College who reigned supreme in the female section with a 3-2 win over UWI while the UWI male team dethroned perennial champions Vikings 3-1 to complete the day of upsets.

Earlier in the day's action UWI B claimed the third place match beating Viqueens 2-0, 25-10; 25-23 while Venus claimed the male third place game 2-0 with a 25-20;25-23 victory over the Port Morant Training Centre team from Guyana.
