Adamson’s Women’s Volleyball Team continues to prove its mettle against fellow collegiate teams. 

The Lady Falcons secured a 25-17, 25-18, 25-22 sweep of the Lyceum of the Philippines Lady Pirates in the Shakey’s Super League (SSL) National Invitationals, August 1 at the Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City. 

Newly minted team captain Lucille Almonte paced the San Marcelino squad with her 10 points off six attacks and four service aces en route to a 2-0 card in Pool C, assuring the team of at least a quarterfinals appearance. 

Fresh faces Red Bascon and Shar Ancheta, meanwhile, continued their stellar plays, each posting seven markers. 

Despite back-to-back wins for his wards, Lady Falcons’ head coach JP Yude remains watchful of his wards as he expects higher competition in the later parts of the tournament. 

Adamson will next face University of San Jose-Recoletos from Cebu in their next match.
