Army tossers whip FEU Tams in opener (from Manila Bulletin)

Posted in PVF National Open 2008

I checked out most of online newspapers today just to see what’s under the Sports sections. It’s pretty obvious that everyone is still savoring Pacquiao’s ninth round TKO victory over David Diaz. The match was entitled “Lethal Combination” and it took place last June 28, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel and Casino. I was able to watch the delayed telecast last Sunday (already knowing that the Pacman won over the radio coverage). It was a great fight every Filipino boxing fanatic is bound to remember. I also noticed Pacman’s English skills are getting better every time!

Going to back to Sports news, I was actually hoping to get some news about the PVF National Volleyball Open 2008. Sadly (and unfortunately expected), there weren’t too many newspapers covering the event. The only article I came across was this:

The opening salvo featured four matches of the men’s division.

2008 Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) Inter-Collegiate Volleyball tournament

Posted in PVF Inter-collegiate Volleyball

The last time I heard about the PVF, short for Philippine Volleyball Federation (formerly PAVA), on the news was when the Philippines almost got banned from hosting international volleyball events because PVF failed to settle its dues to the FIVB (Federation Internationale de Volleyball) when our country hosted a leg for the 2005 World Grand Prix. This was a long long time ago, so I think this issue has been settled already. PVF is known as the country’s governing body when it comes to volleyball.

Got this info from the rpspikers.tk forum website posted by stonecold316. Here’s the tournament info for the 2008 PVF Inter-Collegiate Volleyball tournament…
