Adamson, UST reach Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League semis

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Adamson U sustained its top form and waylaid Escuela De Sophia (EDS) of Caloocan while University of Santo Tomas dealt former champion Hope Christian High School another loss as they took the top two spots in Pool B of the Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League Season 13 NCR leg at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City last Tuesday.

The Baby Falcons survived a first-set scare before disposing of EDS, 25-22, 25-12, while the Baby Tigresses pounced on the listless Hope Christian side and came away with a one-sided 25-11, 25-12 win to advance to the Final Four stage of the week-long qualifier among the top high school girls’ volley squads in the Big City sponsored by Shakey’s.

Hope slid to 1-2 and bowed out of the semis race along with EDS, which dropped to 1-3, and Academy of God’s Children, winless in three starts in the two-division, 10-team event organized by Metro Sports headed by Freddie Infante.

Fancied National U also matched UST and Adamson’s three-game run as the Lady Bullpups paced Pool A with Kings’ Montessori School zeroing in on the other semis spot with a 3-1 mark.

But De La Salle-Zobel stayed in the hunt by blasting University of the East, 25-14, 25-16, to improve to 2-1 heading to its final game against NU being played at presstime.

MGC New Life and UE are out of it all with 0-3 marks.

The winner will be the country’s lone representative to the first-ever Shakey’s GVL International Championship which will feature five foreign teams, according to Metro Sports’ and tournament director Johanz Buenvenida.
