Lady Eagles clinch final four spot in UAAP volleyball

By

MANILA, Philippines—Ateneo turned back University of the East, 25-11, 25-14, 25-22, on Wednesday to notch a seat in the UAAP season 75 women’s volleyball tournament final four.

Star spiker Alyssa Valdez did not let up and churned out 19 points, including two blocks and two service aces, to help turn back the winless Lady Warriors at the Arena in San Juan.

The Lady Eagles tighten their hold of the second spot before they take on rival and league leader La Salle on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday.

“Dikit-dikit ang standings, pero kampante ako sa second place,” said Ateneo mentor Roger Gorayeb.

Gorayeb’s squad is also on a prime spot to nail a twice-to-beat edge as the end of the elimination round looms.

Dzi Gervacio added 10 points for the Lady Eagles, who were well on their way to a rout before the Lady Warriors toughened it up in the fourth set.

Ma. Leuseht Dawis finished with 11 points for UE, which absorbed its 11th setback of the season and missing a chance to advance.
