UAAP 81 Finals: Coach O to Kat: Wag niya muna kaming paiyakin ngayon

Will Kat Tolentino be back for her fourth and final year for Ateneo de Manila University? "Let's just focus on the championship celebration first," she stated in the Lady Eagles' post-game interview following their championship win in the UAAP 81 Women's Volleyball Tournament. Unlike Bea De Leon, Kim Gequillana, and Maddie Madayag, Tolentino has a choice to come back next year. Whether or not she does is still unknown, however. For today, though, Ateneo indeed just wants to celebrate. "Sabi ko naman kay Kat, wag niya muna kaming paiyakin ngayon. Let's make this day a happy day," head coach Oliver Almadro said. And for today, Coach O said he just hopes she goes for what's best for her. As he put it, "I'm praying for Kat to discern well. Hindi pa kami umaabot sa semifinals, I confessed to Kat na I'm really praying for her na magkakaroon siya ng right discernment." For her part, Tolentino is also hopeful for whatever her mentor is saying. "I'm not sure yet. With what Coach O said, we just have to pray for it, but I don't wanna say anything now," she said. Whatever it is, the Lady Eagles' opposite hitter now has one championship under her belt. "I'm just thankful to God for making the journey hard, but memorable because without those three ACL injuries, I wouldn't have had as much passion. I wouldn't be here today because of that," she said. If and when Tolentino makes her decision, the defending champions will be right behind her. "Irerespeto ko naman kung ano yung desisyon niya," Coach O said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP 81 Finals: BDL grateful for competitive Ateneo crowd

Game 2 of the UAAP 81 Women's Volleyball Finals was jam-packed and the Mall of Asia Arena was covered in either blue or yellow on Wednesday. To observers, it seemed like University of Sto. Tomas fans outnumbered Ateneo de Manila University's. Based on my estimate crowd here in #UAAPSeason81 Women’s ???? Finals Game ?? is 70% ???? 30% ????. #UAAPSeason81VolleyballFinals — Pong Ducanes (@ompongski) Mayo 15, 2019 Still, that ratio didn't affect the Lady Eagles as they romped to a four-set triumph over the Golden Tigresses. "I think it's a good experience na we've been here a couple of times. You really learn to tune the crowd out," Bea De Leon said. Indeed, the Katipunan volleybelles have had their fair share of big games - having been in the Finals seven of the last eight years. More than that, they got a big boost from their own crown which, though outnumbered, kept making their voices be heard. "Actually, kahit kain yung crowd (namin), they really tried to overpower (pa rin yung kabila)," she said. She then continued, "Sobrang thankful namin na kahit yun, linalabanan nila." And so, for all y'all who never tired of shouting "One Big Fight," Ateneo team captain Bea De Leon sends her regards. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP 81 Finals: In silence, Ateneo goes back to drawing board against UST

Ateneo de Manila University was at the wrong end of a stunner from University of Sto. Tomas in Game 1 of the UAAP 81 Women’s Volleyball Finals, Saturday at Araneta Coliseum. Without an answer for soon-to-be MVP Sisi Rondina all match long, the Lady Eagles fell in straight sets and wound up in a 0-1 hole in the best-of-three championship round. Post-game, the Katipunan volleybelles declined interviews. The same went for head coach Oliver Almadro who respectfully told reporters that, this time, their chat would have to wait. “Next time na,” he said. Of course, there is no doubt that Coach O and Ateneo would waste no time going back to the drawing board after they got dominated. In Game 1, the Golden Tigresses blasted their opponents in terms of attacks, 46-24; service aces, 10-1; and excellent sets, 19-12. Rondina, by her lonesome, almost matched the Lady Eagles’ spikes, 20 to 24. Coach O was quick to add, though, through chuckles, “Naniniwala ako sa feng shui. Nung hindi niyo kasi ako kinausap, nanalo kami.” After they dropped their first meeting in the semifinals opposite Far Eastern University, they also declined interviews. The next time around, they blasted the Lady Tamaraws in four sets to barge into the Finals. And so, the always amiable mentor is only hoping that lightning strikes twice. "Pray for us na may Game 3. Sana may Game 3. Mas maganda kung may Game 3," he said. Game 2 between Ateneo and UST is on Wednesday at MOA Arena. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Hopefully may way -- Valdez on joining SEA Games national team

Former Ateneo de Manila Queen Eagle Alyssa Valdez hopes to get a compromise when Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. conducts its tryouts for the national women’s team that will see action in the 29th Southeast Asian Games. Valdez, who was a part of the PHI Team that participated in the 2015 edition of the biennial meet in Singapore, will be away for four months to play in Thailand and will not be available if the appointed head coach conducts the tryouts within the first quarter of the year. Valdez will fly to Thailand on January 15 to join 3BB Nakornnont and play in the Thai League and Thai-Denmark Super League. LVPI is set to name the national team mentor this week. The sports association is looking to form a 16-woman pool that will train as early as possible for the August 19 to 31 meet. “Ako I think as an athlete as a Filipino athlete, ‘yun din naman ang ultimate goal mo (to be a part of the national team) aside from your dreams na makapaglaro internationally,” who also played for the Nationals that participated in the Asian U-23 Women’s Volleyball Championship held in Pasig two years ago. LVPI acting president Peter Cayco earlier said that this SEA Games team will be a mix of six veterans, six young bloods and four reserves as the country guns for a medal after its last podium finish back in the 2005 Manila edition when the Pinay volleybelles snatched a bronze medal.     He also added that LVPI wants to pick players that are willing to give their full commitment to the squad. With Valdez set to play in Thailand, the three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player is looking for a way to get a nod for another tour of duty. “But if 'yung mga circumstances hindi ko rin kayang (bigyan ng time) kasi siyempre may responsibilities ka din. Kasi di ba magi-start na sila ng training? And I’m away din so ayun hopefully magawan din ng paraan,” said the two-time UAAP champion. “I think in both parties naman like Thailand wouldn’t hinder me naman (to play for the national team) for sure kung sa country naman maiintindihan nila ‘yun. Hopefully may way din (na makasali ako sa national team).” The 23-year-old hitter showcased her skills and talents during the country’s first participation in the SEA Games since 2005 and was chosen as the country’s flag-bearer marching aplomb ahead of the 600-strong Team Philippines.   Valdez wants to get another crack of representing the country. “Ultimate dream mo is to represent the country,” she said. “I would really love to do that if given a chance.”       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

UAAP: Coach Franz says Adamson now a destination for blue-chip recruits

Adamson University, new-look and all, is doing pretty well in the ongoing 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Following the lead of Jerrick Ahanmisi and fanning the flames of the development of Simon Camacho and Jerom Lastimosa, the Soaring Falcons are now one of the league leaders in the preseason tournament. Of course, it's not only those three doing the heavy lifting as rookies Aaron Fermin and Joem Sabandal and first-year foreign reinforcement Lenda Douanga have also delivered much-welcome contributions. "I think we got very good recruits," head coach Franz Pumaren said after they improved to 3-1. "But basically, they still need to work on their individual skills." Aside from Fermin, a double-double machine from his time in Arellano High School, and Sabandal, a steadying force for Adamson HS, also now in San Marcelino are Lorenz Capulong, AP Manlapaz, Joshua Yerro, and Doria twins Adam and Andrey. That has given the blue and white one of the best recruiting classes in 2019. That big-time offseason haul proved coach Franz correct when he said that Adamson could now recruit with the best of the best. "Since I took over, I think we picked up a lot of respectability. We already established that Adamson can be a powerhouse in basketball," he said at the end of their campaign in UAAP 81 last November. He then continued, "Right now, we are a destination for high school kids who want to be developed." Without a doubt, getting the better of other suitors for the likes of blue-chip recruits Fermin, Sabandal, and Yerro is nothing but a welcome development for the Soaring Falcons - upstarts in terms of recruitment compared to the likes of Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, or San Beda University. And the reason for that is pretty simple - in the eyes of their mentor. As he put it, "We thrive on developing and bringing out the best in players. That's why I know that this is now a destination for aspiring players." He then continued, "If you want to be noticed, to be put on the map, of course, the right place to go is with us." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
