Alyssa Valdez, Amy Ahomiro, Jho Maraguinot and Denden Lazaro of Ateneo de Manila invade Doha, Qatar in an exhibition match.
Filipino volleyball fans in Doha, Qatar experienced a one of a kind treat as former Ateneo de Manila star and three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player Alyssa Valdez, libero Denden Lazaro and Amy Ahomiro shared the court once again with Jho Maraguinot in a mini reunion Friday.
The four Lady Eagles that helped the Katipunan-based squad capture back-to-back UAAP titles in Seasons 76 and 77, played in an exhibition game with Pinoys based in this Middle Eastern country and were given a warm reception from the Filipino community with fans trooping the game venue to witness firsthand the skills and power of the Ateneo volleybelles especially the “Phenom” Valdez.
Some fans were lucky enough to see the game like Qatar-based Betcha Odeste, who shared the experience through Twitter.
