PSL beach volleyball kicks off Wednesday

Reigning champion Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons of Petron XCS will be up against a tough competition when the Philippine Superliga (PSL) Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup unwraps Wednesday at Sands By the Bay in Mall of Asia. Rondina and Pons are billed as two of the best beach volley players in the country. But the road to the title will never be easy as they are up against a solid group of competitors in this prestigious summer spectacle. Rondina and Pons landed in tough Pool A together with powerhouse Cocolife-A of veterans Danika Gendrauli and Nene Bautista and last year’s runner-up Generika-Ayala-A of Fiola Ceballos and Patty Oredain. “We started training after UAAP because we’re trying to make up for the lost time,” said Pons, who joined Rondina in representing the country in the 29th Southeast Asian Beach Volleyball Championship in Singapore last year. “I believe this is going to be a competitive tourney because most of the players are now playing beach volley. We really have to be mentally and physically prepared for this.” Also seeing action are Mylene Paat and Rap-Rap Aguilar of Cignal-A; Bang Pineda and Sheeka Espinosa of Generika-Ayala-B; and Dhannylaine Demontano and Jackie Estoquia of Sta. Lucia A are in Pool B. Pool C is composed of NCAA beach volley champion Nieza and Jeziela Viray of Foton; Cherry May Vivas and Janine Navarro of Cignal-B; and Cecilia Bangad and Caitlyn Viray of Smart. In Group D are Fritz Gallenero and Mitch Morente of F2 Logistics, Marge Tejada and Alex Tan of Cocolife-B; and Jonah Sabete and Bianca Lizares of Sta. Lucia-B. “All teams are competitive,” Pons said. “That’s why we did our best to prepare hard for this tournament.” In the men’s division, Josh Ylaya and JP Pareja of Cocolife, Ian Lester Yee and Romnick Rico of UST, Kris Roy Guzman and Lemuel Arbasto of Foton and Bryan Bagunas and James Natividad of Sands By the Bay will be in Pool A. Alsali Pajiji and Milover Parcon of Navy, Philip Michael Bagalay and Gregory Utupo of Smart, Mika Abria and Jessie Lopez of Cignal and Joven Camaganakan and Joseph Tipay of Team Volleyball Manila compose Pool B. Meanwhile, PSL ambassador Aby Maraño, Jheck Dionela, Mitch del Carmen, Will Devaugn, Amanda Fernandez and Abby Poblador will also see action in the celebrity matches. Men's action starts at 8 am while women's battles are set at 2:15 pm......»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs go 6-0

Defending two-time champion Arellano University will close the year with it pristine record intact after another dominating victory in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition. It took the Lady Chiefs only 66 minutes to dispose the skidding Letran Lady Knights, 25-13, 25-18, 25-15, Tuesday to remain unbeaten after six outings as the league heads on a long holiday break. Princess Belo barely felt the defense of the Lady Knights at the net as she easily scored 12 of her 13 points off attacks while Carla Donato wreaked havoc at the frontline with 12 markers, half of those coming from kill blocks. Last year’s rookie of the year Necole Ebuen and Regine Arocha posted eight points each to highlight Arellano U’s balance scoring orchestrated by Rhea Ramirez’s great ball distribution that saw her tally 26 excellent sets. The Lady Chiefs will march back into action on January 7 against winless Emilio Aguinaldo College. Letran continued to nosedive after suffering its fourth straight defeat for a 1-5 mark. Miracle Mendoza scored eight points while Mariel Larioque got six for the Intramuros-based squad, who gave away 26 points off errors. The Lady Knights will be looking at another difficult challenge come 2019 as they open the year against second-running San Beda University (5-1) on January 4. Meanwhile, the Chiefs defeated the Knights, 25-13, 25-20, 25-15, to move at solo second spot with a 5-1 card in the men’s division. Jesrael Liberato led the way with 11 points while Christian Dela Paz and Jethro Cabillan finished with 10 markers each for last year’s runners-up. Letran slid to 1-5 slate tied with San Beda. In juniors play, the Squires prevented a shutout for Letran after turning back the Braves, 25-23, 25-23, 23-25, 25-21, for a 4-2 card tied with their victims and Lyceum of the Philippines University. Christian Dela Cruz scored 19 points, Mark Omega had 16 while John Paolo Lorenzo chipped in with 15 for the Squires. Erl Eusebio dropped 21 points with 19 coming off attacks while John Derrick Bautista had 15 in a lost cause for Arellano U.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles         .....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Bombers even slate, bury Lady Generals deeper south

Jose Rizal University bounced back mightily from a sorry setback with an emphatic, 25-21, 25-8, 25-20, sweep of listless Emilio Aguinaldo College in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Tuesday. The Lady Bombers erased the bitter memory of a five-set defeat at the hands of San Beda University last week and vented their ire on the Lady Generals with a dominating win that evened their win-loss record to 3-3 as the league enters a two-week holiday break. JRU moved up half a game behind fifth-running University of Perpetual Help (3-2). The Lady Bombers will return to action on January 3 against San Sebastian College, which is tied with College of St. Benilde at third to fourth with 4-1 slates. The Lady Generals suffered its sixth straight setback in as many games to remain at the cellar.   (To be updated) ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: CSB continues win streak, snaps San Beda’s romp

Klarisa Abriam played clutch in the closing stretch of the fourth set to star in College of St. Benilde’s come-from-behind 17-25, 25-22, 25-19, 29-27, win over the erstwhile unbeaten San Beda University in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball tournament Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.   The open hitter scored the Lady Blazers’ last three points of the game to hand CSB its fourth straight win for a 4-1 record while putting a stop on the Lady Red Spikers’ 5-game romp. Abriam scored all but one of her game-high 19 points off attacks while adding 17 digs for CSB. Rookie Michelle Gamit and Maritess Pablo scored 12 each while Jan Daguil had seven markers for the Lady Blazers. “Very big siyempre (ang panalo). If everything goes as planned at least hanggang rank no. 2 ka na. Better ‘yun kaysa sa three or sa four ka magsisimula kung papasok ka (sa Final Four),” said CSB coach Jerry Yee, whose squad will go on a long holiday break before marching back into action on January 4 against Lyceum of the Philippines University. “Every game counts dito, one round lang, mabilis eh. So a’yun nakapakaimportante.” Turning the tables around after recovering from a sluggish first set, the Lady Blazers were able to control the fourth set with an 8-3 blitz for a 20-15 lead. But San Beda behind the efforts of Nieza and Jiezela Viray rallied the Lady Red Spikers in a scorching counterattack to take the lead, 21-20. It was a tight race to the finish for both squads before Gamit put CSB at match point, 24-23, off a soft tip. San Beda made a last stand saving four match points including a crosscourt hit by skipper Cesca Racraquin that tied the frame at 27. Abriam broke the Lady Red Spikers’ defensive wall in the next play before sealing the win with a dink off San Beda overreceive. Jeziela Viray led the Lady Red Spikers with 16 points while Nieza Viray and Racraquin had 13 markers each. Meanwhile, the Blazers swept the Red Spikers, 25-21, 25-21, 25-19, in men’s play. Georgie Juani finished with 14 points, Joshua De Sequera got 12 while Francis Basilan and Roneiy Adviento posted 10 each for CSB, which improved to 4-1 card. San Beda fell to 1-5 mark. In juniors division, CSB-La Salle Greenhills beat San Beda, 22-25, 21-25, 25-18, 26-24, 20-18.     The Greenies improved to 2-3 card while the Red Cubs dropped to 3-3.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Panaga accepts new challenge with PetroGazz

New recruit Jeanette Panaga vows to bring to PetroGazz the same intensity and tenacity she displayed with her former club that won her accolades in the past. PetroGazz head coach Jerry Yee and the Angels formally welcomed the three-time Best Blocker winner Sunday during the team’s press conference and thanksgiving event after a very productive debut in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2. “Na-fortify niya ang middle namin,” said Yee, whose squad finished fourth in the recently concluded Open Conference. “What’s expected of her? Siyempre ‘yung award winning talent niya. ‘Yung pagiging Best Blocker niya, ‘yun talaga ang makakatulong.” Panaga played for Pocari Sweat for two years and helped the Lady Warriors capture the 2017 Reinforced Conference crown and a runnerup in last year’s Open Conference. The former College of St. Benilde standout collected three Best Blocker awards in leagues first three conferences. “Hindi ‘yun pressure kasi nu’ng sinabi ni coach yun parang mas natsa-challenge pa ako na panibagong challenge ‘to. Kailangan may gawin ako na something na magi-improve ako and mag-grow ako as a player,” said Panaga. She was released by Pocari Sweat after the Open Conference and after weighing down her options, Panaga decided to join the Angels, whose core are composed of former CSB players. Panaga will be reunited with ex-CSB teammates in Djanel Cheng, Ranya Musa and Rachel Austero - the same core that delivered the Taft-based squad to its breakthrough NCAA title three years ago. Panaga will also get a chance to play alongside another former Pocari Sweat teammate Cai Baloaloa. “Happy naman ako kasi ito na yung reunion namin from Benilde and Pocari and others sila Ate Paneng (Mercado) na magkaka-teammate ulit kami then parang hindi naman ganun na sobrang mahirap mag-adjust kasi naging kasama ko na sila,” said Panaga. PVL will have a five-month break before its third season and PetroGazz hopes to use that time to beef up its rosters and create better team chemistry heading into the Reinforced Conference. The Angels are currently pursuing prospective foreign guest players but requested the media not to divulge the names of the imports as the management is still undergoing negotiations.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Team KiefLy crushes first beach volleyball stint together in BVR

Philippine sports power couple Alyssa Valdez and Kiefer Ravena hit the sandcourts together for the first time in the celebrity match of the Beach Volleyball Republic December Open Sunday at the Sands SM by the Bay. They took home a close 23-21 victory in the one set exhibition match versus Charo Soriano and John Vic De Guzman. KiefLy wins the match, 23-21! @abscbnsports #BVRDecemberOpen pic.twitter.com/HS7al1QrCl — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 16, 2018 Both duos put on a fun show for the fans in attendance as they gave an impromptu dance number before the game. The match itself was also not short of entertaining moments especially when Ravena who is known for being a crafty point guard in the basketball court produced most of the points in the sands. "Nakita naman natin na si Kiefer yung player of the game talaga. Service aces, blocks, and mga spikes," quipped former Ateneo beach volleyball player Valdez. This is Ravena's first time to play beach volleyball competitively and it was made more special because it was with beau Valdez. "Beach volleyball is very underestimated, I never thought it would really be this hard. Of course, we play it for fun every time we're on the beach with family but competitively, it's really different," said the sidelined NLEX Road Warrior after the fun game. "I enjoyed it especially playing with my girlfriend, Alyssa, who's really a beach volleyball player, it was nice to pull up a win tonight kahit nag-eenjoy lang din kami," added Ravena. Both shared that they did not do any solid preparation for the exhibition game in order to just enjoy the moment. "Before going here, nanonood na kami ng highlights ng beach volleyball kasi we never trained together," shared the five-time PVL MVP. "We wanted to come out as unprepared as possible to really enjoy it na lang," added the PBA standout. The Phenom's game versus Soriano and De Guzman is also for a good cause. The proceeds of the event will be donated to Mindanao State College of Sports, Physical Education, and Recreation Academy in Marawi City. "It was nice that I played for the BVR family. It's for a cause and it's one great experience especially knowing you're helping a lot of people," said Ravena.  .....»»
