The Cagayan Valley Lady Rising Suns is now the top seed of Shakey’s V-League Season 10 Open Conference and I am hoping that #TeamCagayan continue to win as we all know they are 2 weeks away from sending out their 10 players to Asian Volleyball Championships in Thailand and that would be on September 13 – 21, 2013 but I don’t worry that much because this team has a deep bench plus 2 Thai imports, Thipachot and Soraya.
Let’s Go Cagayan! Let’s Go! Philippine Team Viva Bomberinas #OneForTheCountry #TeamCagayan #VivaBomberinas
Smart-Maynilad however is the second team in standings who taste their first defeat vs Team Cagayan but still they are the team to beat in spite of having an undermanned or should I say underwomanned team I think they are 8 players rotation in total as of now because Alyssa Valdez and Dindin Santiago haven’t played yet.
Dindin she was benched last time because of pending clarification on her playing status. This team is one of a jam packed talented team or they call it all-stars so everyone is really expecting this team to win it all.
Philippine Air Force taste their first win over FEU while Philippine Navy’s debut spoiled by Team Cagayan. Another team to watch for is Team Meralco Power Spikers because this team has some really tall players plus the inclusion of their import Coco Wang and best floor defense in the name of Jen Reyes and Fille Cainglet.
I still wanted to see FEU win and I can see that they are getting their as they are the only University to join this conference this would be their advantage in the upcoming UAAP Volleyball League. Good luck girls!
