Where your horizon expands every day.


Adamson University and University of Santo Tomas have both secured spots in the quarterfinals of the second season of the Shakey’s V-League Collegiate Conference, with the added bonus of only needing to win once to advance. Adamson and UST progress to the quarterfinals of the Shakey’s V-League Collegiate Conference Season 2, earning the advantage of advancing with just one victory.

Over the weekend, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum in Manila, ADAMSON University defeated College of St. Benilde in a five-set match (25-18, 10-25, 17-25, 25-18, 15-8) to secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the Shakey’s Super League (SSL) Collegiate Pre-Season Championship Season 2. In another game, University of Santo Tomas beat Ateneo de Manila University in straight sets (25-15, 25-21, 25-18) and also secured their place in the quarterfinals.

The Lady Falcons concluded their playoffs with a record of 5-1, placing second in Pool F behind Far Eastern University (FEU) with the same record. In Pool E, the Golden Tigresses (5-1) and reigning champion National University (NU) (6-0) emerged as the top teams.

Each of the four teams will receive a bonus for winning once in the crossover quarterfinals against lower-ranked teams in both pools after the preliminary round and during the playoffs.

NU is set to face off against UE, FEU will compete against Ateneo, Santo Tomas will challenge St. Benilde, and Adamson will clash with Arellano University. 

The team ranked third in Pool E will compete in the quarterfinals this weekend.

Maria Rochelle Lalongisip had a standout game with 21 points, 18 hits, two aces, and a block, helping Adamson come back from a 1-2 set deficit against the team coached by their former coach Jerry Yee.

At Santo Tomas, Cassie Carballo made 15 great passes to lead a diverse offensive effort from Jonna Perdido (9), Kyla Cordora (7), Mary Banagua (6), Regina Jurado (6), Angeline Poyos (5), and Athena Abbu (5). – John Bryan Ulanday
