    go la salle.. whatever happened last season is just a bad dream..
    i know and i believe you will get the trophy..

    what happened to villanueva who played with cha cruz in the beach volleyball tournament?

  • kaye

    wow..ganda pa rin ng line up. Sana mag.champion ulit kasi last year na nila mercado at alarca.Maging focus at consistent lang..God Bless You All

  • green charles

    I have a strong faith that they can outlast the tigresses this season..
    Believe ladies believe!!!

  • green charles

    I am wondering the same thing. She can contribute a lot to the floor defense of the team since she has the abilities of a libero! Maybe the coaching staff have other plans for her.. we just do not know for the meantime… God bless Amanda Villanueva!!


    Amanda Villanueva is part of the beach volleyball team only. Starting this season, DLSU decided to put up a beach volley team separate from indoor and she is the first member of that team.

    Since the team is still incomplete, they borrowed players from the indoor volleyball team like Charleen Cruz when they competed in the UAAP beach volleyball tournament

    Hope this clarifies

  • ANIMO 🙂 GO BIG M.A.C and the rest of the team 🙂

  • Crycesian

    At last Volleyball Season is upon us, going to see our Lady Spikers play. Hope that this will be a better season with the girls reclaiming the crown.

    Animo La Salle…

  • Observer

    But what’s the rationale for putting up a separate team for beach volleyball? Beach volleyball is good training ground for indoor.



    Not really. Beach Volleyball requires different sets of skills. Take note that the playing court is different and not because you’re good on the hardcourt means that you can also excel on the sand. Also, the school wants to avoid any injuries to the indoor volleyball team as like what happened last year. It’s better to have a different team for beach volleyball.

    The best training for the indoor team is participating in other tournaments.

  • aj

    im not from la salle.But im a big fan of la salle especially the Women’s volleyball team.Go Lady spikers..beat USTE

  • Joepet Yu

    Go Stephanie Mercado! IDol! Break A leg! Animo La Salle! ^_^

  • Observer


    I’m coming from what other volleyball coaches do or say. They let indoor players do beach for conditioning precisely because the court is different. That’s what I meant of good training ground. And even for skills and techniques, veteran players like Nene Bautista and Mic Laborte are effectively scoring in indoor using beach volley techniques as what you would always hear from commentators during games. So it’s the other way around. It’s not that if you’re good in indoor, you’re good in beach. It’s if you’re good in beach, most likely you’ll be effective in indoor.

    As to injuries, who got injured in beach volley among the indoor players last year?

    And, yes, best training is joining other tournaments, well, for me, that includes beach volley. So when is DLSU going back to V-league? I think time is due to patch up things with V-league especially with Tony Liao.



    It’s really a case to case situation. Some player benefit from playing beach volley and some don’t. La Salle has realized this that’s why they decided to create a separate team for beach volley instead of plucking out players from the indoor team. I think this is good decision to get players who are really more accustomed to play beach volley since they can get to train longer and really focus on this sport. For the indoor team, this gives them a chance to train as a TEAM rather than have 3 of their players work out individually and risk the chance of getting injured prior to the season. UAAP indoor volleyballl is admittedly more prestigious than beach volley right now so it’s best that our girls are well-conditioned and injury-free when the tournament starts.

    Not to everyone’s knowledge, One of the Lady Spikers was playing hurt last season because of an injury she sustained playing in the beach volley tournament a couple of months earlier.

    For the V-League. No word yet if DLSU will come still come back. Let’s see.

  • Observer

    In the case of DLSU on beach volley, its players like Datuin, Martinez, Gohing, Alarca, Cruz, Siy and Esperanza, I suppose, benefited from this sport, unlike other teams whose beach volley players are just sitting on the bench or are not being utilized during indoor. Existing indoor players not anymore crossing to beach volley may not be an issue, but for new talents like Amanda in beach volley not to have a chance to play indoor is an opportunity loss for both her and the team. As you said, indoor now is more prestigious than beach. Also, beach volley ends so quickly, so what else is there for Amanda for the rest of the season other than just being a spectator in indoor. Her 2 teammates are playing in indoor. This goes to all future beach volley players who can be potentials in indoor. Maybe every time there’s a case like this, it’s when you pluck out players from beach to indoor and just find new replacements for beach under this new policy.

    Who exactly was the player with an injury last season? Martinez?

  • the best prin sa lahat steph,,ilove her….

  • ike ledesma

    yes, it will be wise if we can patch up with whatever differences (pride) the team and coaches have other persons..like tony liao? is he an alumnai?, whatever difference they may have…well forgive and forget?

  • Observer

    I heard Tony Liao is from La Salle Greenhills then UST college.

  • ike ledesma

    to tony liao…let us not allow pride to rule our feelings, there is forgiveness and maybe to pray to that person or event that has caused whatever hurt feeling you entertain to take hold of you. whatever your decision is…that is yours…it would be nice if we can take this all to God..He is our final judge. God be with you tony including all His blessings on you and your family.

  • ike ledesma

    to “observer” i agree on your opinion re beach vo9lleyball players, and thanks for the info regarding tony liao’s schooling…i pray that he will come back and cheer for his school and not for it’s rival school.

  • Observer

    Yes, same here. I really hope Tony Liao goes back and supports the Team again and opens the door of V-league. But I also expect the Team to show interest on this. I’m sure Tony’s Sports Vision partner Mr. Ricky Palou will understand that, hehe.

    BTW, what’s happening to Joanne Siy? Why is she given very limited playing time? I know Gumabao is stepping up big but I don’t want also Joanne to eventually lose her confidence. She’s the best blocker and ROY of Season72. I hope both of them will have equal playing time.

  • ike ledesma

    your thoughts and opinion …you seem to know and read my thoughts on that!! yes..joanna siy should be given more playing time, you are right there that she might start losing her confidence. Because her playing time is so limited, she might be forcing herself to give more or take risk by thinking that she must produce in her short playing time. I also agree that Gumabao is doing great..and taller too? would you know their heights? your opinions are so much worth reading…kun sa tagalog pa (ilongo ako)..TUMPAK and AMEN!!

  • ike ledesma

    lookslike ramil read our thoughts and opinion…at last joana siy was given more time sa last outing against feu. Michelle gumabao will be a very big asset sa team lady spikers, her future looks bright!

  • Observer

    Yes, it’s good that Joanne was allowed longer time in that game. But I noticed Gumabao, and also Cruz and Gohing, were not playing well that cost them the 2nd set. That’s why they were pulled out and Gumabao was never brought back unlike the two. I still hope in the coming games Siy will be given equal time as Gumabao, even if Gumabao is not having an off-day. Either of them inside court, my confidence is the same. But the commentator, Anton Roxas (I think) in that game said that according to coach Ramil, it’s because of the emergence of Gumabao why Siy stays most of the time on the bench. So that’s the answer. We just have to trust Ramil on this.

    BTW, regarding the height, I don’t know either. I hope GREENARCHER.PH will include that info on the players’ profile above.

    …Everyone is looking forward for the crown..they all wish you will have the title and i’m one of those..may God always be with your team to guide you always..let the spirit be within each one’s heart of yours..ANIMO La Salle!!!

  • Observer

    Is it true that Shakey’s V-league organizers sent invitation letter to DLSU for its Season 8 summer league next year?

  • ike

    i too hope that DLSU will accept (if there is any) of the v-league organizers and join the season 8.. so that we can have something to hope and watch for the volleball games to keep on going…may our team stay humble in winning!! and getting back the crown…

  • ike

    I am speechless or writeless? he he he! their keys to winning is to give God the glory!

  • ike

    it might just be my imagination…how come it is always DLSU getting the penalties? is there some kind of a plot? how come the whistle blower does not blow his whistle on the first violation..it is as if he is waiting for more before he blows the whistle, so more deductions sa la salle wins? basketball and volleyball nangyari na ito. Dlsu management has to blame themselves too..

  • gio arcel

    natatakot na ba ang ibang team sa DLSU womens volleyball team kasi nararamdaman na nila na makukuha na ulit ng GREEN ARCHERS ang crown kaya naghahanap ng butas para walang kahirap hirap na makakuha ng kaunting puntos?

    >>>to DLSU Lady Spikers: Good Luck, God Bless all of you esp. MICHELLE I. GUMABAO… Idol talaga kita…tambakan nyo sila…lalo na ang UST…

  • gio arcel

    booing by the crowd is not really a negative approach it depends on how you accept it.USTe crowd and fans keep on booing the sophomore and rookie players of Lady Spikers.WHY?because they know that if GUMABAO,MARANO and ESPERANZA continue to play their best, it is a one-sided game in favor of the Lady Spikers.

  • gio arcel

    to Mika Esperanza; wag mo pansinin ang supporters ng USTe booing you,marami pa yan this coming finals,let them pay for that,make them shut their mouth as you play your best AS THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.I’ll be praying for you and for the team.

    Lady Spikers,
    You really MUST improve your floor defense and minimize unforced errors especially on the service line. You are giving too many points to your opponents. Causing your own defeat is the most painful experience in any competition. Don’t mind the UST community. Whatever they do on the gallery, ENJOY IT. You already have what it takes to regain the title. Don’t be in a hurry. JUST PLAY YOUR GAME. The La Sallian community trusts YOU and will always be behind YOU. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. GOD BLESS! ANIMO LA SALLE beat UST!

  • jc

    good luck on your game later …..

  • Anonymous

    Lady Spikers,
    Okay, if mental or psychological collapse, resulting to bad reception, poor floor defense, and other unforced errors, during a game is really part of your system, then SO BE IT. But, still, do your best to CORRECT it, otherwise, continue to MANAGE it as how you did in all your 5-setter games. Anyway, it’s not how you play the game but IT IS HOW YOU FINISH THE GAME, AND THE SEASON. I miss the Lady Spikers who win a game in 3 or 4 sets. Please don’t get me wrong. Do not be pressured. JUST BE YOURSELVES ON COURT. WE TRUST YOU and WE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR YOU. Now, LET’S DO A TOTAL SWEEP OF SEASON73 ON COURT. Again, don’t be pressured. ANIMO LA SALLE beat UST! GOD BLESS! Thank you GIRLS for making US proud.
