Adamson ends La Salle-Zobel’s UAAP Girls Volleyball reign, advances in stepladder

Adamson University ended De La Salle-Zobel’s reign with a 25-20, 25-21, 25-14 win to advance in the next phase of the UAAP Season 82 Girls’ Volleyball Stepladder at the Paco Arena on Wednesday.

Middle blocker May Nuique topscored for the Baby Falcons with 14 points on eight attacks and four blocks. Meanwhile, Kate Santiago contributed 13 kills and 11 digs.

Up next for Adamson University is a duel with twice-to-beat University of Santo Tomas on Sunday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

National University-Nazareth School is in the best-of-three Finals after sweeping all of its 12 elimination round matches.

“Marami pa ring errors eh, pero masaya ako kasi naniniwala na ‘yung mga bata sa sarili nila na kaya nilang manalo,” said Baby Falcons coach Lerma Giron.

Adamson built an 11-point lead in the third frame after scoring five consecutive points, 20-9, to put the game away.

With the Junior Lady Spikers closing in in the second frame, 21-22, the Baby Falcons put on the finishing run. They got three consecutive points off two hits by Santiago, then a service ace by Nuique, for the 2-0 set lead.

Irah Jaboneta paced De La Salle-Zobel with 11 points, while Gerzel Petallo and Ysabel Gamboa chipped in 10 markers apiece.

Angel Canino did not play in the game, citing an undisclosed injury.

The Junior Lady Spikers committed 26 errors, including 11 in the third set.
