NU tests Ateneo; FEU, Adamson collide

/ 03:35 AM February 08, 2017

Jaja Santiago and National University take on an Ateneo team wanting to prove itself post-Alyssa Valdez Wednesday in the UAAP women’s volleyball at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

Santiago, the dominant 6-foot-5 middle blocker-turned-opposite spiker, showed that she has found an able feeder in Jasmine Nabor, who replaced Ivy Perez.

But their partnership was tested in the opener when University of the East put up a gallant stand before eventually yielding, 18-25, 25-20, 25-23, 25-13.

Out to challenge NU at 4 p.m. are the Lady Eagles, who tripped the Santo Tomas Tigresses, 25-20, 25-21, 25-22, in Saturday’s opener.


Ateneo’s Jho Maraguinot will lead the charge for the rebooting Lady Eagles, along with Bea de Leon, Maddie Madayag, Michelle Morente and Kat Tolentino.

Adamson and Far Eastern University collide at 2 p.m., each hoping to notch their first victory.
