Ateneo WVT/MVT/BVT: Home of The Champions! One Big Fight! (Thread IX)

Welcome to the Ateneo Volleyball Teams thread, the Home of The Champions! :)

Good news for all the fans and supporters of the Ateneo Women's Volleyball Team! The Ateneo De Manila Lady Eagles successfully defended their UAAP women's volleyball crown against their arch rivals, the De La Salle Lady Spikers. The Lady Eagles outlast the Lady Spikers in straight sets, 25-22, 25-17, 25-23, in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 77 Women's Volleyball Finals to claim their second consecutive championship. The Game 2 of the championship series was held earlier at the Mall of Asia Arena.


At the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday afternoon, more than 20,000 people showed up to watch Game 2 and most of them cheered for the Blue and White Team.

It has been a great season 77 for the Ateneo Volleyball Teams.

The Lady Eagles not only clinched the women's title for the second straight season and completed a historic 16-game season sweep, but they also completed a season sweep of the Lady Spikers and has won 16 straight sets.


Who would have thought that this team who made history in Season 76 through winning the first ever UAAP championship title for the Ateneo on the same season they were branded as a "rebuilding team" would make a comeback in Season 77 and sweep the whole season?


Each and every one of them deserved that piece of gold.


The promising rookies experienced their first championship with the Lady Eagles.


The graduating players Ella De Jesus, Aerieal Patnongon and Denden Lazaro.

Their long journey has finally ended and it ended with a championship. We will surely miss them.


Aside from winning the title, the team also received individual awards. Denden Lazaro was named Best Receiver, Jia Morado was named Best Setter, and Alyssa Valdez was named Best Server, Best Scorer and Season MVP.


The Finals MVP Amy Ahomiro.

She really deserved that award. She has really improved a lot especially in net defense and scoring, and she played consistently.


The Coach of the Year Coach Anusorn 'Tai' Bundit.

He is the man at the helm and the man who guided them to victory.


The men's team also made history of their own.The Ateneo De Manila Blue Spikers won their first ever UAAP men's volleyball croiwn by taking down the National University Blue Bulldogs last Saturday, March 7, at the Mall of Asia Arena. The Blue Spikers completed a series sweep against the dethroned 2-time defending champion and also avenged their loss in last year's finals.

The team also bagged individual awards. Ish Polvorosa was nameded Best Setter and Finals MVP, and Marck Espejo was named Best Spiker and Season MVP.


The Ateneo Boy's Volleyball Team also made a good account of themselves in UAAP Junior's Volleyball. The Ateneo Blue Eaglet Spikers finished Season 77 in 2nd place behind University of the East Junior Warriors.

Despite its 2nd place finish, Ateneo managed to win two of the individual awards. Basti Enrique Cuerva was awarded Best Setter, while Gian Glorioso was awarded Best Blocker.
