V-League Mindanao reset to Nov. 12-15-A A +A
Wednesday, October 9, 2013
THE Mindanao leg of the 11th Shakey's Girls Volleyball League, earlier scheduled on September 18 to 21, has been reset to November 12 to 15 in a still undetermined venue in Davao City.
Mindanao leg coordinator Abet Bernan bared this to Sun.Star Davao on Wednesday, saying they will finalize the venue next week.
"The schedule had been pinned down. All other details will be the same but we are still looking for a venue available on these dates," Bernan said in a phone conversation.
Bernan earlier said pushing through with the Mindanao leg this year is part of Shakey's "passion and advocacy to inspire and teach the younger generations to get into active sports."
The Davao City National High School is defending champion but they will have to contend with rivals Ateneo de Davao University, Maa National High School, Corpus Christi High School of Cagayan de Oro City, Tagum City National High School, Cor Jesu College High School of Digos City, Iligan City National High Schoool, Notre Dame of Kidapawan College High School, St. Mary's School of Cagayan de Oro City, and Koronadal National Comprehensive High School for their title-retention bid this year.
An all-expense paid trip to the Tournament of Champions in Manila is at stake for the Mindanao champion team in the Philippine Volleyball Federation-sanctioned leg to be officiated by Balibolista de Dabaw. (MLSA)
