The Ateneo De Manila University Lady Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head match against the De La Salle University Lady Green Spikers at 3:30 P.M. on March 7, 2020 live from the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila.
The Lady Blue Eagles wanted to make a back-to-back victory while the Lady Green Spikers are aiming to snag their first victory as they start their UAAP Season 82 campaign when the Women’s Volleyball resumes this afternoon at the Mall of Asia Arena.
No Rust! That might be the message Ateneo wanted to deliver in their season-opener as they dismantled the University of the Philippines Lady Fighting Maroons last Wednesday also at the MOA Arena.
A demolishing 25-13, 25-17, 25-23 to kick-off their season where they were led by a veteran, Kit Tolentino and a super-rookie in Faith Nisperos who both delivered 15 and 9 points respectively.
“We’re so grateful and finally we had an opportunity to play again in the UAAP,” said Lady Blue Eagles head coach Oliver Almadro. “Thankful also that the Lord gave us this first win.”
“It’s a big thing for us to win the first game of the season, but we will not stop here, one game will not determine our character. We’re just happy that we were able to play again and we won the first game,” he added.
For team DLSU on the other hand, they will parade a rookie-laden lineup which Ateneo head coach described them as “blue-chip recruits”. These Lady Spikers youngsters will immediately get their acid test in the tournament.
