Defending champions Univeristy of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses made their road to a repeat much clearer after sweeping the elimination round and earning a berth directly in the best-of-three Finals at the SM Sands by the Bay in Pasay City.

Cherry Rondina and Caitlyn Viray broke into the Finals after a classic showdown with erstwhile-undefeated rivals Far Eastern University’s Bernadeth Pons and Kyla Atienza, 22-20, 17-21, 15-13.

Since Rondina started playing for UST, Season 80 marks the third time they have swept the elimination round.

“Sobrang relief po siya sa amin. Pero alam din namin na hindi pa tapos ang laban. Kailangan pa rin namin trabahuhin ‘yung gold,” said Rondina, who has two UAAP titles under her belt.

FEU, on the other hand, drop to the second seed of the stepladder Final Four and salvage a twice-to-beat advantage.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
