Western Visayas to meet CV in Shakeys girls volley Final Four


WESTERN Visayas (WV) flaunted its awesome form yesterday to down Eastern Visayas, 25-6, 25-11, in the ongoing Shakeys Girls Volleyball Tournament-of-Champions at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The win, its third in as many games, pushed the WV belles to the semifinals along with Southern Luzon. However, they will aim to enter the next round with much momentum when they tangle with fellow undefeated squad, Central Visayas (CV), which is being bannered by Cebu leg champions, Southwestern University.

CV is at 2-0 (win-loss) following wins over Eastern Visayas and the much-hyped Victoria team from Australia.

Roma Joy Doromal provided the spark for Western Visayas, punching in four hits and three aces, with Sarah Jean Gonzaga complementing her with a four-hit, one-block effort, and Princess Robles accounting for three kills.

Southern Luzon clinched the first semis berth in Pool A with a double win last Tuesday, beating Mindanao, 25-13, 25-19, and outlasting NCR-South, 13-25, 25-18, 25-22.

Represented by De La Salle-Lipa and backstopped by top players from Imus Institute and University of Perpetual Help-Laguna, the Southern Luzon tossers swept their first three matches to advance to the crossover semis. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio
