The Sky High volleyball finals are on and they’re here.
The Australian women and men have faced off to determine the best two teams to win the title, with the two teams from each region competing to determine who will represent Australia in the finals.
In a tournament which has seen a lot of upsets in the past, it’s no surprise the women have won their first ever title.
The men have won six out of seven finals matches this year and it’s the first time the men have had six titles in a row in the final of a tournament.
This is an exciting time to be a Sky High fan.

In the final, the women’s team was strong in defence, with a strong performance in the quarterfinals to go with the semi-final loss to the men.
The women’s side dominated the quarterfinal against the men, winning both games and the semi finals.
The first semi-finals saw the women upset the men with a 7-5 victory, with another victory in the semi final taking the women to the finals where they came back against the defending champion.
The second semi-round was an all-women’s match with the women beating the men and going on to win.
The final was a nail-biter with the men winning their first title in a decade and a half, but it’s still a bit of a wild card to be playing against the women.
It’s hard to say who is going to win because we know the men are the best team but who’s going to get to play in the grand final?
It’s a great challenge for the players and they’ve had a good year, but the women are still very good and it’ll be a big test for the team.
The Sky High team have won the most games in the competition with 13 wins, eight losses and four draws, and the women haven’t lost a game in the tournament.
The best of the season has been on the ground with the team winning their final five matches, taking home two titles and three silver medals.
The team are now back at home in Melbourne and are preparing for the semi grand final which will be played in a couple of weeks.
The grand final is scheduled for February 27 and the men will meet the women in the first game.
The finals will be on the ABC on Wednesday, December 7 at 7.45pm, and Sky Sports on Saturday, December 10 at 8.30pm.
