A year ago, the De La Salle University (DLSU)-Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) matchup in the UAAP Women's Volleyball Finals was considered a classic.
And now, an encore awaits.
For four straight years, the Ateneo Lady Eagles and De La Salle Lady Spikers will again battle in the UAAP women’s volleyball crown. In last year’s fnale, La Salle held the thrice-to-beat advantage but was upset by Ateneo in four games, overcoming a thrice-to-beat disadvantage to win their first title.
Defending champion Ateneo Women's Volleyball Team will try to retains its UAAP women's volleyball championship against rival La Salle Women's Volleyball Team in Season 77 Finals.
The Lady Eagles will be the favorites, as they now are the ones with the thrice-to-beat advantage after booking a historic sweep of the elimination round. With that, a difficult challenge awaits for La Salle as they will have also to play without top player Ara Galang, who suffered tears in the ACL and MCL, along with bone bruises and a medial meniscus tear in her left knee during their stepladder semis game against National University.
Lady Eagles has defeated Lady Spikers four straight times dating back to Games 3 and 4 of the Season 76 Finals. They won their first round encounter last January 11 in five hard-fought sets (25-22, 25-27, 16-25, 25-14, 15-9), then won their second round match-up in four sets (25-20, 21-25, 25-23, 27-25) to wrap up a 14-game sweep of the elimination round.
The Ateneo will need to win only twice to secure back-to-back championships.
