University of Santo Tomas and De La Salle University will return in action in the 2nd conference of the Shakey’s V-league which is scheduled to start this October 19, 2008 at The Arena, San Juan City. The return of the two schools was confirmed by the V-League operations director Ricky Palou. Both schools took a leave of absence during the last V-League conference due to academic reasons.
Other schools participating in the league are: Adamson University (1st conference champions), San Sebastian College-Recoletos (84th NCAA champions), Lyceum of the Philippines (WNCCA champions), Ateneo De Manila University (1st conference runner-up), Far Eastern University (UAAP 70 champions), and College of Saint Benilde.
The Tigresses and the Lady Archers are the winning-est teams in the V-League. Both teams have won three titles already.
On Guest Players
This time around, each participating team will be allowed to acquire a total of two additional players outside the school roster: one (1) guest player, and one (1) alumna .
“We picked Mary Jean Balse as our guest player and Venus Bernal as the alumna player, making sure that one of the best duos in volleyball will stay with the Tigresses”, according to UST Coach Casseal (Shaq) delos Santos. “Balse and Bernal are assured of playing for us, that is why we have started training for the V-League,” Delos Santos said.
As for the defending champs Lady Falcons, they will still have first-conference MVP Nene Bautista and Janet Serafica as their guest and alumna players, respectively. Ateneo de Manila will have veteran Charo Soriano to play for them as the alumna player. They are also currently scouting for Thai guest player. San Sebastian will take in Jinni Mondejar as their alumna player.
