UAAP Season 81: Tigresses, Lady Falcons collide in opener
University of Sto. Tomas opens its UAAP Season 81 women's volleyball tournament against Adamson University.

University of Sto. Tomas and Adamson University march into battle on Sunday looking to open their respective campaigns in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament on a high note at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Opening serve is at 2:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, iWant and via livestream.

Graduating hitter Sisi Rondina begins her last dance for the Tigresses. She will be backed by sophomore Milena Alessandrini, last year’ rookie of the year, Dimdim Pacres and celebrated newcomer Eya Laure.

The Lady Falcons will bank on veterans Eli Soyud, Bernadette Flora, Joy Dacoron, Thang Ponce and Chiara Permentilla following the departure of Jema Galanza, Fhen Emnas and Mylene Paat, who all graduated last season. Rookies MJ Igao, Trisha Genesis and Krich Macaslang are expected to make their presence felt for the Air Padda-mentored squad.
