Adamson University marches with new head coach Onyok Getigan in its search for its first win of the season.
Onyok Getigan debuts as head coach of embattled Adamson University on Sunday when the listless Lady Falcons go head-to-head with National University in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament at the Big Dome.
The Kings Montessori and Adamson U girl’s team mentor begins his stint as replacement for American coach Air Padda at 4:00 p.m. in a match that will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
Getigan was named head coach of the Lady Falcons last Thursday with Padda retaining a spot in the team as conditioning coach. Padda called the shot for Adamson for three years with a 1-13 record in her first year before falling short of a Final Four berth with a 6-8 card last Season.
The Lady Falcons are winless in three outings.
Meanwhile, the Lady Bulldogs are coming off a four-set defeat at the hands of three-time defending champion De La Salle University.
NU is tied with University of the East with 1-2 slate.
