UAAP volleyball: Ateneo finally gets their first win, defeating FEU

UAAP volleyball: Ateneo took out its emotions on Far Eastern University to snap a three-game losing streak. On Thursday at Mall of Asia Arena, they won the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball competition by 25-16, 25-14, and 25-14. They are following three consecutive losses. The reigning champs have finally demonstrated their worth. The Blue Eagles’ first win came thanks to Faith Nisperos and Lyann De Guzman. Nisperos spearheaded Ateneo’s balanced offense. With 11 spikes, two aces, and a block, she scored 14 points. A former FEU Baby Tamaraw, De Guzman, returned to torment her alma mater with 12 points and three aces. Oliver Almadro, the Ateneo coach, led the team to the UAAP Season 81 championship in 2019. He was pleased that his youthful players accepted his challenge to break out of their funk. In addition, the Blue Eagles tied the Lady Tamaraws with a 1-3 record.

Oliver Almadro said,

He said shortly after the win, “We’re thrilled that we’re finally in the win column.” “Most of my guys have never played in the UAAP or even visited the MOA Arena. I’m quite pleased with what my players accomplished. They immediately reacted to my challenge from yesterday. After that, they challenged themselves. Every game, we have to perform well.”

Jaja Maraguinot, the playmaker, contributed 14 great sets and nine digs. Joan Narit led the team with ten points, while Vanie Gandler and AC Miner contributed seven. In a four-set loss to Adamson last Tuesday, Ateneo also committed 38 errors. In the offensive zone, it had only 14 turnovers and outscored FEU 39-26. The Blue Eagles also received better service as they fired eight aces. It includes Nisperos’ game-winning serve and didn’t allow the Lady Tams, who had 11 aces against UE two days ago, to score a single authority.
