NU begins its quest for five straight UAAP high school volleyball titles in the girls division on Sunday against De La Salle-Zobel.
Faith Nisperos will lead National University's five-peat bid this weekend in the UAAP Season 81 high school volleyball tournament at the Blue Eagle Gym.
After drawing an opening day bye, the Lady Bullpups will take on the De La Salle-Zobel in the first of a three-game bill on Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
Hostilities will begin Saturday, with last season's runner-up University of Santo Tomas battling UP Integrated School at 1:30 p.m., followed by the 3 p.m. match between De La Salle-Zobel and University of the East and the 4:30 p.m. tussle between Far Eastern University-Diliman and Adamson University.
Nisperos was the Finals MVP when the Bullpups swept the Junior Tigresses in the best-of-three series.
A two-time season MVP winner, Nisperos will be NU's new skipper as veteran Joyme Cagande has moved up to the college ranked.
UST, meanwhile, sets in motion its title-retention campaign in the boys division against NU at 12 noon Saturday.
Other scheduled boys matches beginning at 7:30 a.m. are Ateneo-UPIS, FEU-UE and DLSZ-Adamson University.
