The Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles defeated the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags in three sets, 25-17 25-13 and 25-21, in the Shakey’s V-League collegiate conference at the San Juan Arena on Sunday.
Coach Tai Bundit’s ladies proved to be too powerful for the wards of Coach Roger Gorayeb as the former sailed smoothly to take the first two sets.
The Lady Stags went all out in last-ditch effort during the third set but failed to secure a rally.
Jhoanna Maguinot led the Lady Eagles with 10 points on seven blocks while Kim Gequillana added nine more markers.
Despite the limited playing time of star spiker Alyssa Valdez, who only grabbed a point, Ateneo had no difficulty of beating the team from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Jolina Labiano and Denice Lim amassed a total of 12 points in the Lady Stags’ loss to Ateneo.
