It would have been a grand slam of sorts for the Lady Spikers this morning. Seeded 4th in the stepladder semifinals, the girls had to win 3 matches, all in the same day for them to capture the UAAP beach volleyball crown.
They almost pulled it off, beating 3rd seed UST 21-19, 8-21, 15-9 and 2nd seed FEU 21-14, 18-21, 16-14. When they faced defending champion Adamson in the finals, fatigue has probably set in as they were swept 17-21, 14-21. I guess playing 3 successive games in a span of 2 hours was just too much to bear.
Nevertheless, the Lady Spikers were able to improve on their 3rd place finish last year. Members of the team are Charlene Cruz, Mikaela Esperanza and Amanda Villanueva.
The Green Spikers, composed of Michael Antonio, John Dela Vega and Mark Lee captured 5th place.
