DDC hosts Shakey’s V-League Mindanao-A A +A
Thursday, October 31, 2013
THE Davao Doctors College will host the Mindanao Leg of the 11th Season of the Shakey's Girls Volleyball League on November 12 to 15.
Leg organizer Ali Bernan said they're happy that DDC committed to be a partner of the prestigious volleyfest for secondary girls teams.
"It's all systems go for the Mindanao leg. Davao City National High School will have few veterans left to lead their title-retention bid in the qualifying event of the national finals," Bernan said during the special Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at NCCC Mall B3 Center lanes on Thursday.
He said, however, that DCNHS will face stiff competition with the presence of current Batang Pinoy Mindanao champion Tagum City National High School, Milo Little Olympics champion Iligan City National High School and Batang Pinoy Mindanao runner-up Koronadal National Comprehensive High School.
Also entered are the Ateneo de Davao University and Maa National High School of Davao City, Corpus Cristy High School and St. Mary's School of Cagayan de Oro City, Cor Jesu College High School of Digos and Notre Dame of Kidapawan College High School.
Bernan added, "Lahat ng teams ay magagaling. Hasang-hasa na talaga sa kumpetisyon at marami narin ang naging exposure. Davao teams will put up a very good fight."
He also said each team may be reinforced by two guest players born 1996 and below.
The champion of the round-robin elimination format event will win an all-expense paid trip to the Tournament of Champions in Manila inclusive of airfare, hotel accommodation and meals.
Admission is free to the public. (MLSA)
