La Salle-Lipa, NU debut with aplomb

De La Salle-Lipa and National U hacked out victories in varying fashion to lead the opening day winners of the Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League of Champions Season 14 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig Friday.

The defending champion DLS-Lipa spikers put on a superb all-around game to frustrate their Ateneo de Davao U rivals, 25-19, 25-18, while the NU side, runner-up in last year’s edition of the annual event sponsored by Shakey’s, needed an extra set to defuse the Holy Family Academy tossers, 25-15, 18-25, 25-19.

Those victories gave the two fancied teams the early lead in Pool A of the two-division finale which gathers the top 10 teams which survived the grueling regional elims of the league backed by MyPhone, Asics and Mikasa and organized by Metro Sports.
