True blue Adamsonians will be tasked to patrol the sidelines for the Lady Falcons. 

Former Falcon spiker John Philip Yude, currently the head coach of the Baby Lady Falcons, has been tapped as the chief tactician of Adamson’s Women’s Volleyball Team. 

Also coming in with Yude will be his fellow Falcon spiker Leo Miranda and former Lady Falcon Shiela Marie “Bang” Pineda, who will serve as his deputies. 

Yude replaces Jerry Yee who was released a few days ago, owing to the latter’s commitment to coaching in the professional league. 

Coach JP steered AdU’s Girls’ Volleyball team led by Shaina Nitura, Red Bascon, Jao Cuenca and Juris Manuel to the UAAP 85 finals.  

Miranda is teammates with Yude when they bannered the blue and white of San Marcelino along with pros Rence Melgar and Paolo Pablico before the latter transitioned to coaching. 

Pineda, meanwhile, was a key part of the Adamson Women’s Volleyball teams where she played with the likes of Pau Soriano, Mylene Paat, Amanda Villanueva, Fen Emnas, Erika Alkuino and Jema Galanza.
