Altas completes three-match romp of Red Spikers

Defending NCAA Men’s Volleyball champions University of the Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas ended their 2018 Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference campaign on a high note, punctuating a three-game winning run with a victory over the San Beda University Red Spikers, 25-14, 26-28, 25-22, 25-13, Saturday afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Taking their lead from the service line, the maroon-clad spikers finished off with seven aces but also doomed their opponents to measly 31 excellent receptions on 89 attempts. With this good service game, the Altas peppered the Red Spikers with 51 attacks.

Ron Rosales paced the Las Piñas side with 17 markers off 10 attacks, five blocks, and two aces. On the other hand, last year’s Rookie Most Valuable Player Joebert Almodiel stood his ground both on offense and defense, firing off 14 points to go along with 11 digs and 16-of-28 excellent receptions.

Assistant coach Joaquin Marcelo was pleased that his wards closed out their stint with a good finish. “Actually ‘yung mga unang games namin, hindi pa nagkakakilala yung sa galaw nila. Tyinaga namin sila sa training; minotivate namin sila,” he said.

The Altas finished just outside the top four at 4-5.

Going out with a 2-7 win-loss record, the young San Beda squad were led by Jomaru Amagan with 18 points.

UPHSD  3 – Rosales 17, Muhali 16, Almodiel 14, Ramirez 6, Ramos 6, Casana 5, Bation 3, Enarciso 0, isidro 0, Baggayan 0, Atentar L, Go L.
