The Ateneo Lady Eagles swept the UE Lady Warriors in straight sets, 25-15, 25-13, 25-11, on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 78 Women’s Volleyball at The Arena in San Juan.
It was the Lady Eagles’ 11th win in 13 games. The win gave them the provisional top spot for the tournament. The victory also served as a warm-up for their much-awaited showdown with the La Salle Lady Spikers on Apr. 10, Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
It was just another day in the office as the Lady Eagles had the luxury of fielding in some of their reserves like the Gaston sisters, Therese and Pauline. They were able to contribute five points.
Meanwhile, it was UE’s 58th consecutive loss. The Lady Warriors will try to avoid another winless campaign as they battle the Adamson Lady Falcons on April 13, the last playdate for the elimination round.
Skipper Alyssa Valdez scored 17 points, while teammate Jhoanna Maraguinot chipped in 13 markers to improve their record at 11-2. UE’s Shaya Adorador and Roselle Baliton were the only Lady Warriors who managed to contribute in the scoring department, tallying seven and six points respectively.
