NU Lady Bullpups complete UAAP Girls’ Volleyball sweep

Last year, National University-Nazareth School’s bid for five-peat was denied by De La Salle-Zobel. This time around, the Lady Bullpups made sure no one could stop them. 

NU completed its season sweep of the UAAP Girls’ Volleyball Tournament with a masterful three-set Game Two win over Adamson University, 25-10, 25-17, 25-15, at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan Sunday.

This is the Lady Bullpups’ fifth crown in six years.

“The girls did well, ginusto nila ito. This championship is all them. They played with energy, passion and everything they’ve got,” said NU coach Regine Diego.

Finals MVP Evangeline Alinsug top-billed for the Lady Bullpups with 16 points on 12 spikes and two blocks. Season MVP Mhicaela Belen dropped 13 markers while Alyssa Solomon uncorked 11 points.

Up by just a single point in the third set, 9-8, NU unleashed a 16-7 finishing kick, capped by Alinsug’s off-the-block kill for the championship.

The Lady Bullpups closed the first frame on a 13-2 blast, highlighted by five service aces from Best Setter Camilla Lamina to take the upper hand.

NU did not allow a single Baby Lady Falcon to score in double figures.

Adamson’s leading scorer was Kate Santiago with just four points.
