Nazareth School of National University is out to seal its fourth straight girls volleyball championship.
Nazareth School of National University shoots to complete a series sweep of the 80th UAAP girls volleyball Finals against University of Sto. Tomas on Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Banking on the trio of Faith Nisperos, Rookie of the Year winner Alyssa Solomon and middle Ivy Lacsina, the Bullpups drew first blood in the series opener last week and are now looking to close out their fifth straight championship showdown with the Junior Tigresses at 4:00 p.m.
NU outlasted UST in a grueling 5-set encounter, 25-19, 17-25, 26-24, 23-25, 15-11, last Monday.
But Eya Laure and the rest of the Junior Tigresses want to extend the series to a decider.
If needed, Game 3 is on December 11.
Meanwhile, the Tigercubs set their eyes on claiming the boys division title against Far Eastern University-Diliman at 2:00 p.m.
