Benting, Suarez Reign in Petron Beach Volley '08

Date Posted: Aug 2, 2008 at 01:20:56 AM


The inconvenient truth could still be haunting the senior Volley pair of Nerrisa Bautista—Adamson’s guest player from Bacolod during the Shakey’s V-League—and Sheryl Laborte—a varsity of Miriam College, after being crushed by the Adamson University Lady Spikers Hannah Suarez and Angela Benting in the battle to clinch the crown of the 2008 Petron Ladies’ Beach Volleyball Tournament’s third leg. The exciting game—21-17, 17-21, 21-18—was played last July 26, 2008 at the University of the East-Caloocan Gym.

 

Proving that they can be a potent mix in the sand court, Benting and Suarez beat the highly fancied duo of Ateneo Asia Urquico and Jessica Morado in the crossover semifinals with 21-13, 21-4.

 

The title match held the viewers’ breathe as the game was a close fight till the concluding stage. Benting scored an ace after Bautista committed a side out to hand the Lady Falcons an 18-16 advantage in the deciding set.

 

It was after two net errors by Laborte that the Lady Falcons were proclaimed as the champs.

 

Hannah, a 2008 BS Education graduate, and Angela, a Management major, won the top purse of P 10,000 and a ticket to the Petron Battle of Champions later this year. JCM
