The UAAP Season 71 Beach Volleyball tournament has officially opened last September 6 in UE-Caloocan. After the first few days of beach volleyball action, UST and FEU (Women’s) remain unbeaten among a total of eight teams. FEU’s Camille Anne Abanto and Marigail Tolentino started their title defense campaign on the right foot.

To my surprise there was a huge crowd at the Blue Eagle Gym security office. I asked around on what the ruckus was all about and what they told me was absolutely SHOCKING. Apparently what happened was that someone was caught…
