Jēkabpils Lūši became the Latvian Volleyball Champions winners for the third time.
They were crowned club champions as they beat RTU Robežsardze/Jūrmala in the fifth game of the final series of the 2020/21 Nacionālā līga playoffs in straight sets, partially 25:21, 25:17, and 25:20.
Kristaps Šmits stood out on the winning side with 18 points, while Renārs Jansons scored 14 points for Jūrmala.
According to volleyball experts in Latvia, this year’s finals were considered the best and most exciting in the last 10 years.
And, in any case, Jūrmala missed a huge opportunity to win the title as they dropped a 2-0 lead in the series, needing just one more win to get crowned champions.
