Dominance and Destiny: A special summary

Before we start another page this coming summer of a number of volleyball tournaments, let me first summarize what has transpired the past school year in all volleyball leagues.

Be it UAAP, NCAA, WNCAA, V-League or whichever league there is, the champions this school year were nevertheless the teams who were expected and destined or one whom everyone was predicting to be champions. There were tests in the middle of the way but it’s what made them win and go the extra mile. It is what brought them also to the Promised Land.

V-LEAGUE SEASON 5

1st Conference – Adamson University

If you can still remember, critics were discounting Adamson of winning the championship last summer for the reason that Coach Dulce Pante was overexposing her girls to various tournaments. Adamson, in the Final Four, even lost to a hapless Lyceum squad and arranged a do-or-die game against runner-up Ateneo. The Finals featured Ateneo and Adamson but clearly, frustration caught up with Adamson. They were just so eager, frustrated and determined to win the crown against a team who is in an unfamiliar territory. Hence, they won the championship easily led by ironically Ateneo’s former guest player Miss Nerissa Bautista who was likewise named the Season MVP and the Finals MVP. So powerful was their team that it had Miss Janet Serafica, Miss Rissa Jane Laguilles, Miss Angela Benting, Miss Lizlee Ann Gata and Miss Michelle Segodine to help both in offense and defense.

2nd Conference – San Sebastian College (Recoletos)

When San Sebastian had their first game, it is no doubt that they are in for a treat. Having Suzanne Roces is the link that would complete a very powerful yet disappointing San Sebastian team, which at that time, has not yet won a V-League crown despite winning three straight titles in the NCAA. With Bualee being absent the whole season after reinforcing the team for two years, the Lady Stags of Recto just played pure teamwork and capitalized their strong first six which was composed of Miss Analyn Joy Benito, Miss Laurence Anne Latigay, Miss Jacqueline Mondejar, Miss Rysabelle Devanadera, Miss Charisse Vernon and of course, the woman who has brought home a lot of championships Miss Suzanne Roces. The team was just too powerful and they had no weak spot compared to other teams. It was really destiny.

2008 PRISAA GAMES

Women’s Division – University of Saint La Salle

The Bacolod-based Lasallians killed fellow V-League team USJ-R Lady Jaguars to win the crown that featured a team with their guest players at helm.

Men’s Division – University of Santo Tomas

It didn’t stop with UAAP. UST still won the PRISAA with the help of FEU veterans Mister Edjet Mabbayad and Mister Jessie Lopez to clinch their first ever PRISAA championship and with dominance at that.

fyi…

UST-MVT swept the Nat’l PRISAA in Zamboanga City using an all-UST squad. the planned reinforcement by FEU players did not push through due to conflict in schedule (Edjet’s own preparation for Beach Volleyball).
