Following a dismal 0-3 start to the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball tournament, Adamson University have parted ways with head coach Airess Padda, as reported by Akari Sports, the team’s main sponsor.
The Lady Falcons suffered their third straight defeat last Wednesday, dropping in four sets to University of the East. After the match, the Lady Falcons and Padda declined to speak with the media.
Padda’s first two seasons with the Lady Falcons were challenging.
Taking over in Season 79, the American mentor needed to retool a lineup that had just lost several key veterans and finished with a lone win in 14 matches.
Season 80 showed promise, with Fhen Emnas and Mylene Paat returning to boost a roster that included Jema Galanza and Eli Soyud. But despite a promising start, the Lady Falcons bowed out of the Final Four race late into the season.
Padda finished with 7-24 record in the UAAP, as well as a bronze medal in the 2018 PVL Collegiate Conference.
Onyok Getigan will take over as head coach. Getigan is best known as the architect of high school powerhouse Kings Montessori, and has been serving as assistant coach for Padda in the last two years.
Meanwhile, Padda will remain as the team’s conditioning coach.
