Did you miss watching the greatest upset (so far) in UAAP 73 Women’s Volleyball? I knew it wouldn’t take long for someone to take the time and effort to watch the replay, record it, and upload the entire match on YouTube.
We’re talking about the game between UST and UP where the UP Lady Maroons stepped up big time and beat defending champs UST. It was an awesome match! After losing set 1, the Tigresses were so shocked I never saw Aiza Maizo smile (no even a smirk!) all throughout the game. UP on the other hand played with all heart (and fired up emotions!) and was able to sustain it ’til the end to eventually snatch the match. Open spikers Carmela Lopez and Angeli Araneta did the most damage with 16 and 14 points respectively.

Thank you to everyone who participated during our team try-outs. Team Spikeithard men’s and women’s teams will be joining the 3rd Viking Cup tournament this November. To those who did not make it to the lineup, you will always be welcomed to join and train with the team every Saturdays. We usually send invites via Facebook. Here are some photos during the last day of try-outs. You can see all the photos at the Gallery section.
UPDATE: You can now watch the whole US Girls segment featuring Rachel Daquis here.
I know it does not seem too manly for a guy like me watching US Girls on Studio 23, but I really love that show so whenever I catch it on TV, I get hooked. (Hey, I also watch Sports Unlimited.) A few months ago, FEU volleyball superstar Rachel Anne Daquis was featured in the show.
Vote for your favorite bikini for Rachel Daquis
It’s was summer (back then in April) and Rachel sought the help of US Girls in choosing which bikini would be the most bagay for her — as if there’s any bikini out there that would not look good on Rachel. The viewers were asked to log onto the official Multiply site of US Girls over at to see the photos of Rachel and vote for their favorite bikini for her.
Hello Rachel Daquis’ fans out there!
Rachel needs your help in choosing the best swimwear for her this summer.
Choose your pick and tell us why.
Unfortunately, I was not able to watch the later episodes and did not know which bikini won. Anybody knows? In any case, why don’t we just redo this vote-for-your-favorite-bikini contest over here at Spikeithard.com and determine which bikini looks the hottest on Rachel Anne Daquis. Here are the photos. Don’t forget to vote via the online polling at the end of this blog post.
Here are some beach volleyball action during the 2008 AVP Crocs Slam McDonald’s Chicago Open presented by Nautica. The tandem of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh won this particular tourney. Photos were taken by kababayan Conrad Castelo, a talented photographer who resides in Chicago. Enjoy:
We all miss these two teams: the UST and FEU Women’s Volleyball. The last time the Lady Tigers reigned supreme was when they won back to back championship crowns during the Shakey’s V-League Season 4 Second Conference and UAAP Volleyball Season 69. They were unstoppable during those days. As for the Lady Tamaraws, UAAP Season 70 was their time to shine as they defeated Adamson to win during the finals.
The following YouTube clips feature UST and FEU being interviewed on the ANC basketball show Hardball:
