Adamson Spikers Gained Despite Falling Short For The Title

The Adamson Lady Falcons ended the fiercely competed UAAP Season 70 Women’s Volleyball finals bowing to Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws on the deciding third game, 14-25, 25-19, 23-25, 25-21, 15-9 last March 2 at The Arena in San Juan.


Rissa Jane Laguilles led the Lady Falcons scoring 23 points while teammate Angela Benting added 18. FEU’s Anna Camille Abanto topped the point production for the Lady Tamaraws with 16 markers supported by Macaila Irish Morada and Rachel Anne Daquis collecting 15 and 14 respectively.


The Volleybelles are highly favored to win the championship after sweeping the six teams and topping the elimination round. FEU managed to beat University of Santo Tomas for a chance to meet Adamson University for the battle of first place, which was won convincingly by the Lady Falcons. Adamson stamped class against the fourth seed Ateneo De Manila University while FEU survived a grueling match over the defending champions UST. Both Adamson and FEU shared the first two games of the finals which led to an exciting championship match that was won by the belles from Morayta.


Despite failing to bag the first ever women’s volleyball title, individual awards were raked by the San Marcelino-based spikers. Laguilles was awarded the Best Server, Janet Serafica as the Best Setter and Lizlee Ann Gata as the Best Libero.


Turning over to the men’s side, the rookie-laden Adamson Falcons squad earned a respectable finish at the fourth place, almost beating the recently crowned champions UST on a controversial five setter on their Final Four encounter, 20-25, 25-17, 20-25, 25-16, 16-14.
