UAAP: Tigresses, Lady Bulldogs still spotless in beach volleyball

The University of Santo Tomas and National University stayed perfect by sweeping two matches Tuesday in women's division of the UAAP Season 81 beach volleyball tournament at Sands SM By The Bay. Reigning MVP Sisi Rondina and Babylove Barbon bested Ateneo's Ponggay Gaston and Jules Samonte, 21-9, 21-15, before returning in the afternoon session with a 21-14, 21-14 conquest of De La Salle's Tin Tiamzon and Michelle Morente to extend the defending two-time women's champions' undefeated run to three games. Rookies Klymince Orilleneda and Antonnete Landicho topped University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, of 21-19, 21-10, and University of the East's Rhea Manalo and Lyen Shan Ritual, 21-15, 21-15, for NU's third consecutive win. In the men's division, Far Eastern University became the only undefeated team, as Jude Garcia and Kevin Hadlocon repulsed UST's Krung Arbasto and Jaron Requinton, 21-19, 21-18, for a 3-0 card. Reigning titlist National University continued its rise from a shock opening day loss, with MVP Bryan Bagunas and James Natividad scoring a 21-12, 21-15 victory over Ateneo's Kurt Aguilar and Abai Llenos for a 2-1 card. The Lady Spikers raced to a 7-4 lead in the second set before the Tigresses regained control with the cat-quick pair of Rondina and Barbon making adjustments in their game to produce another straight sets conquest in front of a highly-appreciative crowd. Tiamzon and Morente, who dominated Adamson University's Hannah Nicole Infante and Gracelchen Ave, 21-10, 21-5, in the morning session, fell to 2-1. Meanwhile, the Lady Maroons and the Lady Eagles entered the win column after two straight losses. Molde and Dorog topped FEU's Ivana Agudo and Marianne Calinawan, 21-18, 21-11, while Gaston and Samonte, turned back Adamson University's Ave and Infante, 21-14, 21-14. In other men's matches, Adamson University's Pao Pablico and Jesus Valdez bested UE's Clifford Inoferio and Alven Aljas, 21-15, 22-24, 16-14, while UP's Nico Consuelo and Mac Millete outlasted De La Salle's Geraint Bacon and Paul Serrano, 23-21, 19-21, 15-12. The tournament resumes on Friday with eight men's and four women's matches beginning at 8 a.m. at the same Mall of Asia Complex sand court.  .....»»

UAAP Beach Volleyball: NU rookies dazzle in debut

National University rookies Antonette Landicho and Kly Orillaneda were not supposed to be the ones representing the Lady Bulldogs for the UAAP Season 80 Beach Volleyball Tournament. But due to conflicts with the indoor volleyball team, the 18-year-olds were called up late in August to play on the sand court. "Hindi din po kami dapat ‘yung maglalaro. Sila Ate Roma [Doromal] po [dapat] kaso nagkaconflict po sa indoor," said Landicho who hails from Balayan, Batangas. Despite the late call-up, the duo has been giving an impressive account of themselves after defeating all of their three opponents so far. First, it was the Ateneo Lady Eagles, 21-11, 21-14. Second, was the UP Lady Maroons, 21-19, 21-10. And their latest victim, the University of the East, 21-16, 21-15. "Masaya kasi unexpected po na kami maglalaro tapos naka 3-0 pa din," shared Landicho. Interestingly, this is also Landicho's and Orillaneda's first time to play beach volleyball on a competitive level. "Si [Antonette] first time, ako po paminsan-minsan sa Cebu," shared Orillaneda. However, first time jitters were not obvious among these girls. With their apparent chemistry and smart ball placing on the sands, both girls played as if they have been playing together for a long time already. When asked about it, they said it was all about good communication. "Usap lang po kasi lagi kaming naguusap kung san namin lalagay yung bola like sa dulo dulo, dito, dito," said Landicho. So far, the only unbeaten teams in the league after three games are NU and defending champions University of Santo Tomas. By Tuesday, October 2, the rookie Lady Bulldogs will face the Tigresses. "Okay lang po laban lang naman. Tao din naman si Ate Sisi. May skills din naman po siya na wala [siya pero mayroon] sa amin tapos yun na lang yung papakita namin," said the bubbly Orillaneda. In addition to UST, they will also have to face De La Salle University and Far Eastern University. Regardless of how tough their itinerary is, Orillaneda has this to say. "Nothing to lose, everything to gain ganun lang iniisip namin," shared the rookie......»»

Easy opening-day victories for Santo Tomas spikers

University of Santo Tomas' Sisi Rondina and Babylove Barbon handily beat University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, 21-12, 21-12, at the start of UAAP Season 81 beach volleyball tournament on Monday at Sands SM By The Bay in Pasay City. Rondina, the three-time Most Valuable Player in her final year, and new partner Barbon are eyeing to give the Tigresses a third straight crown and a sixth title in eight seasons. It was a double victory for UST as its men's pair of Krung Arbasto and Jaron Requinton also beat Ateneo's Kurt Aguilar and Abai Llenos, 21-11, 21-14. Reigning men's champion National University, however, wasn't as fortunate as Bryan Bagunas and James Nat...Keep on reading: Easy opening-day victories for Santo Tomas spikers.....»»

UAAP: Sisi Rondina s last beach volleyball ride

Gunning for a three-peat in the UAAP beach volleyball tournament, University of Santo Tomas Sand Tigresses Sisi Rondina and Blove Barbon opens their Season 81 in dominating fashion after crushing the University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, 21-12, 21-12. The queen of beach volleyball Rondina has partnered with rookie Barbon. The newbie from Bukidnon is Rondina's fourth partner in five years in the sand courts. "Kahit sino naman ang partner ko basta they will play with our school in mind, wala akong problema doon. As long as kaya niyang ipaglaban 'yung school namin," Rondina shared. This comes as no surprise as Rondina has been playing in the sand with different partners almost every year and regardless, she still wins the championship. This season is Rondina's last year to play for UST and she can't help but wax sentimental on her last ride. "For me lang naman, hindi siya pressure, nasa-sad lang ako kasi siyempre last year. Sana makuha namin 'to para maganda 'yung exit. Siyempre, hindi rin kami, ako papayag na aalis akong walang makuha. Tatrabahuhin pa rin namin. Magkakabuhusan na lang talaga," she shared. No worries for Rondina because when rookie Barbon spoke to reporters after their match, she giddily expressed her willingness to help her Ate Sisi. "Kinabahan po kasi first time ko po, rookie po ako. Wala pa po masyadong experience tulad ni Ate Sisi. Tiwala lang po sa sarili na kaya namin, na kaya ko tulungan si Ate Sisi, gawin ko lang yung part ko," said Barbon. But behind that willingness is also an honest nervousness. "Sobrang saya na sobrang pressured kasi yun nga last year na ni Ate, kailangan namin [manalo para] mas maganda yung pag exit niya," said the young player. Who can't blame her? Barbon is partners with arguably the best beach volleyball player to ever grace the Philippines sands......»»

Rondina, the three-time MVP who is in her final year, worked hand in glove with her new partner Barbon to open the Tigresses' bid for a third consecutive crown on a winning note. It was a double victory for UST with its pair of Krung Arbasto and Jaron Requinton also making work of Ateneo's Kurt Aguilar and Abai Llenos, 21-11, 21-14, in the men's division.

Falcons fend off Tigers for 3-0 start

Adamson stayed undefeated but needed to scrape past University of Santo Tomas, 79-71, in the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball tournament Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Jerrick Ahanmisi led the way with 20 points while also drawing ample contributions from the Falcons' supporting cast for a 3-0 start. "My bench players proved that they are capable of stepping up," said Adamson head coach Franz Pumaren. "I think it was a good test for us to show how well we play as a team down the stretch," said Ahanmisi, who thrived in the crucial stages with nine points in the fourth quarter. Vince Magbuhos had 15 points and four steals, Jonathan Espeleta scored 12 points while Simon Camacho co...Keep on reading: Falcons fend off Tigers for 3-0 start.....»»

Eight breakout players who wowed in PVL s Collegiate Conference

Collegiate volleyball won’t be around until the second semester but the recently-concluded Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Collegiate Conference on ABS-CBN S+A gave us a glimpse of what the girls may be raring to give us once their tournament in their respective leagues finally open. Some girls came out of nowhere to really provide the fireworks in the conference and came away with new fans and admirers thanks to their impressive play on the floor. As the PVL’s Open Conference is about to part its curtains, let’s take a look at the eight collegiate volleybelles who totally captured our hearts thanks to their display of heart and skill.   1.) Tonnie Rose Ponce, Adamson University (Tonnie Rose Ponce (libero) made a mark in the last PVL Collegiate Conference when she bagged a Mythical Six award) Adamson head coach Air Padda is proud of Ponce, her team’s libero, for being the best cheerleader of her teammates on the floor. Even with her small stature, she plays big with a fighting spirit that has endeared her to the fans. It still came as a surprise, however, to the dimunitive Ponce, to be named as one of the Mythical Six and the conference’s Best Libero. Maybe not for Padda, who has always seen the leadership potential of her squad’s cheerleader.   2.) Rosie Rosier, University of the Philippines (The sophomore Lady Fighting Maroon was instrumental in ending the school's 36 year major title drought in the PVL Collegiate Conference) Rosier was instrumental in breaking the UP Lady Fighting Maroons’ 36-year championship drought as the sophomore carried the team on her back in a thrilling five-set Game 1 match with the FEU Lady Tamaraws. She pumped in 15 points via 13 attacks to have probably one of her best birthday celebrations to date, and followed it up with a 10-point output in Game 2 to help her squad bring home the Collegiate Conference crown.   3.) Milena Alessandrini, University of Santo Tomas (Second year Golden Tigress Milena Alessandrini powered the Thomasians in the FInal FOur ddespite nursing a shoulder injury) UST’s Fil-Italian tower introduced herself to Filipino volleyball fans when she won Rookie of the Year in UAAP Season 80. While it’s not easy to be on a different land where everyone speaks a different language, Alessandrini has been quick to adapt to what the coach wants done on the floor based on her performance in PVL. Her best game happened in the Battle for Third against Adamson where she broke out with a 31-point outing, a sign of things to come for the Golden Tigresses’ campaign in the coming UAAP wars.   4.) Celine Domingo, Far Eastern University (Celine Domingo followed up her stellar UAAP season 80 campaign with a masterful PVL Collegiate Conference under Coach George Pascua) Veteran setter Kyle Negrito is FEU’s top player and Jerrili Malabanan is their main weapon, no doubt, but Domingo is poised to take over the team as she continues to make an impact in the net in the recently-concluded PVL Collegiate Conference. The conference’s First Best Middle Blocker has been one of Coach George Pascual’s reliable players that are expected to carry the scoring duties now that super senior Bernadeth Pons’ career with the school is over. Too bad she was set back by a knee injury in Game One of the Finals against UP, which also sidelined her in Game Two.   5.) Jan Daguil, College of Saint Benilde (Jan Daguil (16) was one of the surprises for CSB in the PVL Collegiate Conference) With their MVP, Jeanette Panaga, moving on from her school career, the College of St. Benilde Lady Blazers are hard-pressed to find a replacement. So far, Marites Pablo has emerged as the biggest candidate, but not too far behind is Daguil, who has come up big for them when they needed the points the most. During their battle for a Final Four spot in the recently-concluded PVL Collegiate Conference, Daguil led her team with 15 points, all on kills, to turn back the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags.   6.) Joyce Sta. Rita, San Sebastian College-Recoletos (Joyce Sta. Rita is the only holdover remaining for the Lady Stags but she is determined to be their main pillar) Sta. Rita is the only holdover from Coach Roger Gorayeb’s compact 7-woman squad from a year ago in NCAA Season 93, where she was named Second Best Middle Blocker. That did not stop her from being an example to her new teammates as she fought in each set and match to keep the young Lady Stags competitive even if they failed to notch a single win.   7.) Satrianni Espiritu, San Beda University (Satrianni Espiritu (10) looks to be the final piece of the puzzle for the SBU Lady Red Spikers) Everyone talks about SBU stars Cesca Racraquin and the Viray twins. But another player that should be acknowledged is Espiritu, who consistently chipped in to keep the Red Lionesses in contention with her consistent showing game in and game out. If her PVL Collegiate Conference showing translates to the incoming NCAA wars, the other ladies better be shaking in their shoes as the Red Lionesses will be a mighty force to be reckoned with. 8.) Cindy Imbo, University of Perpetual Help System Dalta (With Bianca Tripoli out of commission, Cindy Imbo stepped up in the last PVL Collegiate Conference) Bianca Tripoli is the main pillar of strength for the Lady Altas. It was a shame that she had to limp off the PVL Collegiate Conference due to a mild tear in her quadriceps. Carrying the load for her during her absence is Imbo, who displayed her scoring abilities while their captain was injured. In a crucial game against favorite FEU Lady Tamaraws, Imbo fired away 15 points to lead the team. While they did not win the match, it showed her capability to step up when needed. Watch for these ladies when the 2018 seasons of the NCAA and UAAP women’s volleyball tournaments begin. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more scintillating volleyball action once the PVL resumes with their Open Conference this Saturday (September 22) on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream......»»
