Palisades avenged a loss in last season's 4-A Division boys' volleyball final and won its ninth City Section championship Friday night, defeating Roosevelt, 15-7, 15-1, 11-15, 15-9, at Pepperdine's Firestone Fieldhouse.
James Turner, a 6-foot-8 middle blocker, had 19 kills and six blocks to lead Palisades (13-5). Mike Moran had 16 kills for Roosevelt, which made only its second championship appearance.
The Roughriders (14-3) were too small to contend with the Dolphins, who started four players who are 6-3 or taller.
"It was nice win since we lost last year (to University)," said Colin Wellman, who had 27 kills and two blocks. "James was unstoppable in the middle."
In the 3-A Division final, Marshall defeated Fairfax, 15-3, 15-6, 12-15, 10-15, 15-7.
Eli Brueggemann had nine of his match-high 32 kills during the fifth game as top-seeded Marshall avoided another upset in the division final.
