University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses open hitter Milena Alessandrini may miss up to two weeks due to a partial tear on her left ACL, according to a report by the Varsitarian, UST’s official student publication.

The Fil-Italian sophomore suffered the injury last Saturday during the second set of what turned out to be a loss to Far Eastern University.

Potentially missing two weeks means the 6-foor-2 Alessandrini will be out for the rest of UST’s first round schedule.

The Tigresses have a 2-2 record with a matchup against 3-1 defending champions DLSU Lady Spikers next on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Without Alessandrini, UST has mostly opted to shift their lineup and have rookie Eya Laura play the second open hitter spot while Dimdim Pacres fills the opposite hitter slot.

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
