NAASCU Volleyball opens its 12th Season


Intense net action

The 12th Volleyball season of the National Athletic Association of Schools Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) opened last January 30, 2013 at the Makati Coliseum. Seven teams in the Men’s division while six teams in the Women’s division battle it out for the right to be the best spikers as the defending Men’s and Women’s Champion, AMA University are out to win it all again.  Out to crowd the Titans on top is last year’s runner-up Centro Escolar University which is out to avenge their stinging loss in the Men’s and Women’s Finals.  Other teams entered are New Era University, STI College, Our Lady of Fatima University, St. Clare College and City University of Pasay which will field only their Men’s team.

Best Muse, Shiela Marie Gamba

The opening began at 2:00 pm with all teams parading together with their Hiphop dancers that would later on perform. There were three competitions up for grabs that day with the first one going to the New Era setter Sheila Marie Gamba who was adjudged as the Best Muse of the 12th Season of the NAASCU. At the same time, the beat busting Hiphop dance group of Centro Escolar University was the best Hiphop dance team in the annual NAASCU Hiphop dance competition. Coming in second was defending champion Our Lady of Fatima University while AMA University came in third again.

In the distaff side, the defending Women’s Champions, the AMA University Lady Titans likewise debuted in stirring fashion as they beat the vastly improved St. Clare Lady Saints in three sets. All teams will play one round and the top four teams will advance to the final four with the top two teams getting a twice to beat advantage.
