Ten teams brace for a week-long battle of power, hits and wits as they slug it out for top honors in the Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League of Champions Season 14 at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
The event, which gathered the top teams from a grueling regional qualifiers, actually got under way yesterday with four matches although the formal opening will only be held today (Saturday, July 2) to be graced by Shakey’s events manger Stef Leuterio, Luz Ricardo of Mikasa and MyPhone’s Inyi Yruma.
Southern Luzon, represented by the core of De La Salle-Lipa, nipped National U of the NCR in a classic five-setter to clinch the crown last year with the two fancied teams tipped to clash again for this year’s championship with almost intact rosters.
DLS-Lipa and NU are grouped with Ateneo de Davao, Southwestern U and Holy Family Academy in Pool A while UST and Kings’ Montessori School head Pool B which includes Central Philippine University, Iligan City Nationa High and Holy Rosary College.
