After prevailing over the UST Golden Tigresses in seven seasons, the Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles fell on the biggest stage.
The Lady Eagles were dominated on almost all fronts in Game One of the Finals.
While nothing went right for Ateneo, UST’s Sisi Rondina and their raucous crowd capitalized, inching closer to the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball title.
As has become the trend after a loss, the Lady Eagles declined interviews, opting to stay mum for their build-up towards Game Two.
Ateneo head coach Oliver Almadro only left a short statement for the throng of reporters.
“We’re still positive and we still believe,” said the first year Ateneo head coach.
Chief on the Lady Eagles’ adjustment priorities will be receiving. They gave up 10 aces and only excellently received 19 of their 66 reception chances.
Only Kat Tolentino was in double-digits for Ateneo, with 12 points. Meanwhile, captains Maddie Madayag and Bea De Leon only had six and four points, respectively.
