UAAP Season 75: Ateneo Lady Spikers Lineup And First Round Schedule

[Photo credit: Cognoscenti* on Flickr]

We're weeks into the second semester of school year 2012-2013, which means soon I can again follow an ADMU sports team play on local TV. This time it's the Ateneo Lady Spikers, who will be competing in the UAAP Season 75 Women's volleyball tournament.

The Lady Spikersor the Lady Eagles as the media almost always (and perhaps mistakenly) refer to themmade it to the Finals for the first time ever last year, so they're one of the teams to watch this season. But if I recall correctly, this is the last playing year for the 2008 recruiting class that includes the Lady Spikers' top players in veterans Gretchen Ho, Fille Cainglet, Dzi Gervacio, Aillysse Nacachi, and Jem Ferrer. This means Season 75 could be the last best chance in the next few years for the team to bring Ateneo's first-ever women's volleyball title back to Loyola Heights.

Here is their first round schedule:
Saturday, 1 December 2012
San Juan Arena
3:30 PM - ADMU vs. FEU

Wednesday, 5 December 2012
San Juan Arena
2 PM - ADMU vs. UE

Sunday, 9 December 2012
San Juan Arena
3:30 PM - ADMU vs. UST

Saturday, 15 December 2012
San Juan Arena
3:30 PM - ADMU vs. NU

Wednesday, 19 December 2012
San Juan Arena
2 PM - ADMU vs. UP

Sunday, 6 January 2013
San Juan Arena
3:30 - ADMU vs. AdU

Saturday, 12 January 2013
San Juan Arena
3:30 PM - ADMU vs. DLSU

On another (and shallower) note, I look forward to seeing whether just like last year, the Lady Spikers will have uniforms that are similar to what the Blue Eagles used earlier in the UAAP season.
