Adamson has found its next star setter. 

Angelica Alcantara found herself as the chief playmaker of the Lady Falcons after the sudden departure of the team’s seniors and head coach, and she took the challenge head-on. 

The former Baby Falcon orchestrated the young San Marcelino squad’s offense all the way to the finals, leading the team to a silver medal finish in the Shakey’s Super League National Invitationals. 

During the awarding ceremonies, Alcantara, who received the Best Setter award last season in place for her teammate, was once again on-court, but unlike the previous year, it was already her name that was being called by the host as the tourney’s best playmaker. 

The 5’5 setter admitted that she was not expecting the accolade, however, she remained grateful to her new teammates and coaches. 

Aside from the SSL, Alcantara is also slated to lead the Lady Falcons come the UAAP 86 Women’s Volleyball Tournament where they will vye for another Final Four slot despite a young roster.
