Wednesday, October 23, 2013
THE University of San Jose-Recoletos and Central Philippine University hacked out a pair of five-set victories to rule their regional eliminations in the Shakey’s Girls Volleyball League Season 11 recently.
The USJ-R spikers recovered from a fourth-set setback and dominated the decider to repulse the St. Theresa’s College side, 25-21, 22-25, 25-23, 19-25, 15-8, and top the Central Visayas qualifier in Cebu City.
Over in Iloilo, the CPU tossers rallied from a 1-2 set deficit and swept the last two frames, including the fifth to turn back St. John’s Institute, 23-25, 25-15, 16-25, 25-21, 15-10, and capture the Western Visayas leg crown of the event sponsored by Shakey’s and organized by Metro Sports.
Leyte National High School also advanced to the Tournament of Champions set next year as it toppled New Ormoc City National High School to nail the Eastern Visayas leg plum in Tacloban City. (PR)
