THE fate of several municipal teams who ditched their quarterfinal and semifinals matches in the Gov. Gwen Garcia Unity Volleyball (GUV) Cup last month will be known tomorrow when the Cebu Volleyball Association (Ceva) meets for the assessment of the group’s projects last year.
“Aside from the lineup of activities for the year, the sanction for those teams will be one of the priorities in the meeting,” said Ceva official Nona Catipay.
In the weeklong quarterfinal and semifinal rounds of the GUV Cup last December, Ceva had to tackle several forfeitures. Catipay called it a “display of unsportsmanlike conduct” and said it should merit heavy penalties.
In the semifinals of the provincial cluster, both the women’s and men’s teams of Carcar forfeited their matches, giving their opponents free tickets to the title round.
In the quarterfinals, the women’s team of Daanbantayan and the men’s teams of Barili and Carmen also dropped their matches.
Aside from imposing sanctions on these teams, Ceva will also be focusing on the realignment of the officers.
Former vice president Jun San Juan will sit as the new president after Glenn Soco left the post to focus on his political aspirations. He is running for vice governor in the
May 2010 elections.
Meanwhile, Ceva will also be finalizing its lineup of events for this year. In its desire to strengthen volleyball in the province, Ceva is eyeing on hosting a women’s open beach volleyball competition in the sandy beaches of Sta. Fe in Bantayan.
It will also host the Philippine national referees congress for Visayas and Mindanao in March.
Catipay said that they also want to finally push through with their plans of hosting a national open, a project that has been in the drawing board since last year.
