Aussies vie in Shakey’s T-of-C
A crack Australian champion team from the State of Victoria, ready to do battle against the country’s leading high school squads in the Shakey’s Girls Volleyball Tournament of Champions, is arriving tonight.
Boasting three six-footers and three national team players, Australia joins nine other local squads in the six-day championship unfolding Monday at Ninoy Aquino Stadium.
The event sponsored by Shakey’s Pizza features winners of the various regional tournaments, led by NCR leg champion Hope Christian High School and runner-up Colegio San Agustin as representatives of NCR North and NCR South, respectively.
The 17-year-old Hanna Wright, Katrina Jannsen and Letitia Sindt, many-time members of the Aussie youth squad, are tipped to carry the cudgels for the visiting squad coached by George Santamaria.
