Adam­son sweeps UST for PVL crown

- V-League

Adam­son crowned it­self the new PVL Col­le­giate Con­fer­ence cham­pion, blast­ing UST with its su­perb all-around game to fash­ion out a 25-19, 25-6, 25-17 vic­tory and com­plete its sweep of their best-of-three se­ries at the Filoil Fly­ing V Cen­tre in San Juan over the week­end.

Tr­isha Ge­n­e­sis capped her tour­na­ment long bril­liance with 14 hits, in­clud­ing 10 at­tack points, while rook­ies Lu­cille Al­monte, Lorene Tor­ing and set­ter Louie Romero like­wise sus­tained their veteran-like forms to power the Lady Fal­cons to a re­peat vic­tory over the fan­cied Ti­gresses for the cov­eted crown.

“We re­ally pre­pared hard for a UST come­back – de­fense and even on our of­fense,” said AdU coach Lerma Giron, whose wards’ vic­tory like­wise served no­tice of the San Marcelino-based school’s bid for the next UAAP wars.

Af­ter a tough 23-25, 25-17, 25-16, 21-25, 15-11 de­ci­sion in the se­ries’ opener, the Lady Fal­cons stamped their class right at the start of Game Two and never gave the Ti­gresses a chance to re­cover, cruis­ing to their first ma­jor vic­tory since win­ning in the de­funct V-League Sea­son 7 Sec­ond Con­fer­ence in 2010.

Ge­n­e­sis went on to bag the MVP honors while Tor­ing ac­tu­ally paced AdU’s charge with 15 mark­ers she high­lighted with six kill blocks.
