Adamson University made short work of University of Sto. Tomas, 25-6, 25-23, 25-23, Saturday as the Lady Falcons ended their campaign in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament on a winning note at the Blue Eagle Gym.
The Lady Falcons arrested a three-game losing slump for a 6-8 win-loss record and gave graduating players Jema Galanza, Mylene Paat, setter Fenela Emnas and libero Jellie Tempiatura a graceful exit.
Eli Soyud, Galanza and Paat led the way for Adamson, which exacted revenge on its first round tormentor. Soyud finished with 14 points with all but one coming off attacks, Paat added 13 markers while team captain Galanza had 12 for the San Marcelino-based squad.
Galanza added 10 digs and eight excellent receptions while Emnas tallied 24 excellent sets and seven markers for Adamson.
The Tigresses struggled the whole match to close their season with a disappointing 4-10 slate.
Sisi Rondina got 15 points but was the only UST player in double figures. Caitlin Viray posted six markers while 6-foot-2 Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini was limted to only five.
