VOLLEYBALL WILL once again take the spotlight as the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) will stage its 15th Volleyball tournament this coming February 5 (Friday) at the Makati Coliseum starting at 9:00 AM. A total of seven varsities are entered in the Women’s Division while six will dispute the Men’s Division.
Rizal Technological University will defend its Women’s title against last year’s runner-up Centro Escolar University, New Era University, Saint Clare College of Caloocan, Philippine Christian University and guest teams AMA University and Philippine Merchant Marine School.
Meanwhile, CEU is the defending champion in the Men’s Division. They will tangle with last season’s runner-up RTU, NEU, PCU, AMA and PMMS.
The AMA Titans are actually former members and last participated in the 12th NAASCU where they carted away their second straight Men’s championship. The Lady Titans took runner-up honors after ruling the previous season.
NAASCU members City University of Pasay and Our Lady of Fatima University have decided not to put up Volleyball teams this season. The schedule of the other second semester sports will be announced once finalized.
