VK Ventspils defended the title in the Latvian men’s volleyball championship Nacionālā Līga 1. Divīzija.



Unlike the previous season, in which the title was awarded after the playoffs, the 2017/18 Nacionālā Līga 1. Divīzija title had to be earned in the Final Four tournament, whose hosts were the defending champions and also the top-seed VK Ventspils.

In the final match, Ventspils beat No.2 VK Ozolnieki by a 3-2 (25-17, 22-25, 18-25, 25-19, 15-9) and won the national title for the second time in a row.

Kristaps Šepte topped Ventspils with 25 points. Andis Maksimovs added 4 kill blocks, while Arvis Anderšmits made 86% reception (29 digs, 2 errors, 55% excellent). In Ozolnieki, Emīls Elksnītis scored 17 points. Toms Benjavs contributed with 78% reception (18 digs, 1 error, 33% excellent).

On the way to the final, Ventspils eliminated No.8 SK Lokomotīve/DT by a 2-0 in the quarterfinal series and No.5 Cēsis in straight sets in the semifinals.
