Benting, Gata Fall Short of Championship Crown

Date Posted: May 2, 2009 at 03:49:58 AM


Erika Camille Verano and Apple Saraum of University of Southern Philippines Foundation defeated Lady Falcons Angela Benting and Lizlee Ann Gata 21-17, 23-21 to win the women’s division of the 13th Nestea Fit Beach Volleyball Circuit held in Boracay.

 

USPF took advantage of the Falcons’ lack of practice on real sand and defeated AdU in straight sets. According to Coach Dulce Pante, Benting and Gata only practiced on artificial sand at the UST grounds and were unable to adjust their game when it came to the real thing. Verano and Saraum also used excellent down-the-line and drop shots to claim the title.

 

With USPF’s win the Visayas teams make another sweep of the crown as Ariel Carumba and Loujei Tipgos of University of San Jose Recoletos defeated Buensuceso Sayson and Arnel Amadeo of Foundation University also in straight sets, 21-14, 21-17. Yael Esperat
