Ateneo, UST and SSC are against the 1 guest player policy

Posted in Shakey's V-League

After talking with some of the players of the top three teams last V-League. A lot of them are not keen on joining the tournament because of the 1 guest player policy. I don’t know the reason why but I have an interpretation that it would be less exciting for them if ever teams would only have just 1 guest player.

Three La Salle teams parading in V-League Season 5

Posted in Shakey's V-League, Volleyball News

Three La Salle teams namely De La Salle University, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde and University of Saint La Salle-Bacolod will be parading in the 10-team league. De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde was included because of being in the Championship with San Sebastian in the NCAA Season 83. University of Saint La Salle-Bacolod meanwhile will be included due to its excellent volleyball program and its relentless performance in the University Games. It is quite understandable why De La Salle University will be included since they’ve already been 3-peat champions in the league.

Shakey’s V-League

The upcoming Shakey’s V-League is probably the most talked-about conference in the entirety of the league. V-League Season 5 is said to open on March 30, 2008. Venue will be at The Arena, San Juan. Opening games will be between the defending champs University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo de Manila University. These two teams seem to have the most number of fans and followers.

(NOTE: The following info are mostly just assumptions and/or rumors from very reliable sources. This is NOT the final list of guest players.)

UST Tigresses and Ateneo Lady Eagles – both in a “do or die” situation

Posted in UAAP Volleyball

The University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo de Manila University Women’s Volleyball Teams are perhaps two of the most followed teams in the UAAP. One being followed for their height and power while one are being followed for a splendid defense and a player named Charo Soriano. In Last V-League, you would see how the support of both teams flowed as there were yellow balloons for the Espana-based team while blue paper strips to raise for the Katipunan-based team.

Incidentally, these two teams, UST and Ateneo are the two of the top three teams who competed in the recently concluded Shakey’s V-League. UST is of course the back-to-back champions while the Ateneo Lady Eagles are the third placers.

What’s missing?

Read more forum celebrates four years of promoting Philippine and collegiate volleyball

Posted in Other Volleyball Sites

I would just like to commend the forum. The site has been promoting not just Shakey’s V-League but other volleyball leagues as well for almost 4 years now. It has been responsible also for promoting Philippine Volleyball and other Sports as well. Though I am not a member, I’ve enjoyed majority of the posts there.

FEU Lady Tams playing “nothing to lose and everything to gain”

Posted in UAAP Volleyball

The Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws is perhaps one of the youngest teams in the UAAP right now. Looking at their roster, majority of their players are below 19 years which includes the small but terrible Mhica Morada and the threatening rookie Shai Gonzalez who are but 17 years old. The rest of their first six lineup are mostly on their 3rd or 4th years in college. This year was supposed to be their rebuilding year since a lot of players graduated in their team. But wait, aren’t rebuilding teams supposed to be not in the top of the rankings? Hmm. Not for FEU. They’re showing to the public that even though they are a young team, they have a crack at the finals. And besides, this just goes to show how good the volleyball program of FEU is. Who would even thought that a very young demoralized FEU team from last season would come back and give it a shot again in the Finals. A lot of people predicted them to end up below 3rd place or even not to enter the UAAP Volleyball Final Four but they proved everyone wrong. This team has the makings of another dynasty-filled team with most their young players still have 2-3 more playing years from now.
