STI SVC: STI College Sta. Maria complete final four

STI College Caloocan Spikers pick up the pieces

STI College Sta. Maria got their revenge as the Bulacan spikers proved to be steadier in the clutch to halt the unbeaten run of STI College Caloocan 25 – 13, 25 – 18, 25  - 22 to enter the Final Four of the STI Women’s Volleyball Challenge at the Eusebio H. Tanco Gym in STI College Ortigas-cainta.

Josephine Victorio glides on air

Leading the Bulacan Spikers was their main gunner in Josephine Victorio whose 21 points came from 17 kills and four aces and her over-all leadership rubbed on to her team mates that made their game the only lopsided win in the Elite 8 format of the STI Volleyball Challenge.

Singson receives the Ball 

The Caloocan Spikers on the other hand came out flat and started out with so many errors that gave the Bulacan Volleybelles a big lead from the get go. Unfortunately, the Caloocan team found it hard to regroup and find their game which made them the top team in the North Luzon phase of this tournament. Too many errors in the three sets got the better of them.

Ingson is ready to score

The only bright spot on the Caloocan offense were their Middle Blocker Mary Lyn Tanggalin who scored 8 points and their spiker Justine Angeles who scored 7 points. On the other hand, STI College Sta. Maria’s Margie Bermeo backed up Victorio with 12 points on 10 kills, 1 service ace and a solo block. Although two spikers shined, it was a total team effort for the Bulacan team as their floor defense and net defense made it hard for STI College Caloocan to get their game going .

A joust at the net

STI College Sta. Maria will now advance to the final four and meet the rampaging STI College Santa Rosa team. Although the Santa Rosa team has an immaculate record, the Bulacan spikers are ready to strut their wares and give them a good fight. Winners of this knock-out game will advance to the finals.
