RTU, PMMS, CEU Volleyball Midterm Leaders

NAASCU on Facebook     QUEZON CITY – Rizal Technological University continued to lord it over the field of the 15th National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) Volleyball tournaments for Women and Men at the New Era University Gym. Both the Lady Thunder and Blue Thunder remained undefeated in their respective divisions at the halfway point of the tournament.

The defending champion Lady Thunder dismissed guest squad Philippine Merchant Marine School Lady Mariners last Thursday (February 11) in four sets, 26-24, 25-10, 23-25 and 25-15. They followed this up the next day with a three-set demolition of winless Philippine Christian University Lady Dolphins, 25-7, 25-6 and 25-15 for a clean 3-0 win-loss card.

Not to be outdone, the Blue Thunder also chalked up their third straight victory with a draining five-setter against the AMA University Titans, 25-18, 27-29, 22-25, 25-23 and 15-9. The PMMS Mariners likewise kept their three-game winning streak alive by handing the Titans a second straight defeat 24 hours later, 25-16, 20-25, 25-15 and 25-15.
