LAST year, Cagayan de Oro's volleyball fans were treated with much grit and fanfare when the good-looking Myla Pablo led the Pocari Sweat-backed Philippine Air Force in winning the 2nd Higalaay Festival Volleyball Women's Open.
Organizer Alex Adeva said the fans can expect more surprises in this year's edition as the City Government will be staking around P400,000 in total cash prizes for the country's top volleyball teams to come and compete anew.
"Some of the country's volleyball stars will be coming over to provide full-blast entertainment. Mabibo na usab kita ini," Adeva said.
The 3rd CDO Fiesta Volleyball Open Tournament for men and women will be slated August 23-26 in four venues, namely, Corpus Christi gymnasium, Macasandig covered court, Nazareth gym and Xavier University gym.
Awaiting the top-4 performing teams in each category are P80,000, P50,000, P30,000 and P20,000 plus trophies and medals. (Lynde Salgados)
