Lady Falcons Defend Toribio Cup Crown

After bagging the championship of one of the most coveted volleyball leagues in the country today, the Adamson Lady Falcons showed no sign of slowing down by defending their title at the 6th F.C. Toribio Volleyball Cup against University of the Philippines Lady Maroons-Team A in straight sets, 25-19, 25-17, 31-29, last May 31, played in the EARIST Gym at Nagtahan, Manila.

 

University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) women’s volleyball champion Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws edged UP Lady Maroons Team-B in a tightly contested battle for third place, 25-22, 21-25, 25-19, 21-25, 20-18.

 

F.C. Toribio Cup is an annual tournament organized and sponsored by the University of the East (UE), to memorialize the late UE men’s volleyball coach Francisco C. Toribio—who gave UE a total of 13 UAAP titles. Adamson University bested other women’s volleyball clubs of FEU, UP, UE, Colegio de San Juan de Letran (CSJL), University of Perpetual Help-System Dalta (UPHSD), Philippine Christian University (PCU), De La Salle University-Lipa, Assumption College-Makati, Eulogio Amang Rodriguez Institute of Science and Technology (EARIST), Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), National University (NU), and San Beda College (SBC).

 

The San Marcelino-based spikers ended a series of summer leagues to re-gain their confidence after the recent heartbreak at the UAAP Season 70 Finals. They started their campaign joining the Philippine Volleyball Federation Inter-Collegiate Volleyball tournament, which was held in Rizal Technological University in Mandaluyong, just falling short and bowing down to UST Lady Tigresses in the finals to settle for second place. The night before the Toribio Cup Finals took place, the Lady Falcons clinched their first ever Shakey’s V-League championship beating hapless Ateneo Lady Eagles twice on an easily decided championship series.

 

  The University’s volleybelles will be tested again when they join the upcoming National Open that will be starting on June 28 at The Arena in City of San Juan.
