Only 3 school teams confirmed to be part of Shakey’s V-League 8 2nd Conference

I’m not too sure if this is good or bad news. But it’s certainly very interesting. On one hand, losing a lot of school teams can pave the way for the commercialization of teams for Shakey’s V-League as they take in and give chance to corporate teams (so to speak) to participate. Maybe it’s time for the V-League to take risks and create more of these non-school based teams and not merely capitalize on the popularity of college volleyball. Besides, UAAP and NCAA will always be there. Let’s hope that the upcoming Shakey’s V-League Season 8 Second Conference is going to be exciting because of these turn of events. Let’s watch out and support the V-League folks!

Shakey’s V-League 8 Finals: Lady Falcons awaits Ateneo vs. NU sudden death match

Posted in Shakey's V-League, V-League Season 8

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 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.
