Defending champion Ateneo de Manila University begins its title-retention bid in the UAAP women's volleyball tournament on March 4.
Graduating Kat Tolentino will speahead the Lady Eagles' repeat quest with returning Jho Maraguinot and Jamie Lavitoria together with veteran holdovers Ponggay Gaston, Jules Samonte and libero Dani Ravena. Ateneo will miss the services of starting playmaker Deanna Wong, but with Jaja Maraguinot and Lavitoria at the helm, the Lady Eagles remain to be in good hands.
Ateneo also tapped promising rookies in scorer Faith Nisperos and middle Joan Narit, giving the Lady Eagles extra firepower as they try to duplicate their back-to-back in Seasons 76 and 77 during the Alyssa Valdez era.
The Blue Eagles, on the other hand, eye a comeback to the Finals after missing the championship round last year for the first time in six seasons.
