La Salle opens UAAP volleyball title defense against UST

MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University's bid for a third consecutive UAAP women's volleyball title will start on February 3, when they take on University of Santo Tomas (UST) at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Lady Archers won a second straight title in UAAP Season 79 after sweeping rival Ateneo de Manila University in the finals, the sixth straight year that the two popular schools contested the women's volleyball championship.

While they remain one of the favorites in UAAP Season 80, they will have to defend their crown without unquestioned leader Kim Fajardo, last year's Best Setter and Best Server who has now exhausted her playing years.

Instead, La Salle will be led by reigning MVP Majoy Baron, star libero Dawn Macandili, and a pair of Finals MVPs in Kianna Dy and Desiree Cheng.

The Tigresses, meanwhile, will rely on explosive open spiker Sisi Rondina as they are reportedly set to play without EJ Laure for the entire season. The Season 77 Rookie of the Year is taking time off to recover from a shoulder injury.
