Adamson University moves onto the Finals as they defeated University of St. La Salle-Bacolod
yesterday. The Lady Falcons beat their opponents in 4 sets: 26-24, 22-25, 25-17, 25-17. The tandem of Angela Benting and Nerissa Bautista headed the Falcons’ offensive onslaught with 19 and 21 won points respectively.
As for the Lady Eagles, they defeated their semi-finals opponents, National University, in 3 sets however, this win has been forfeited because of a violation committed (an unfortunate error committed by first time head coach Charo Soriano). Bea Tan (#17) of Ateneo was entered into the team’s lineup originally as the team libero. But Bea played as a regular player during the NU match. Under the FIVB rules, a libero cannot revert back to playing as a regular player.
Ateneo will face off National University once again for a sudden death game tomorrow, May 12, 4pm at San Juan Arena gym. It’s going to be a heart beaker should Ateneo lose this one.

Apparently, Lady Eagle Bea Tan was brought into the Ateneo vs. NU game towards the end of the 3rd and final set. She wears jersey #17.
