Weekend # 3 - Saturday Part 1

January 21, Saturday
Arena, San Juan

 UAAP Ladies Volleyball
2nd Round

- Unbeaten -

DLSU Lady Archers Sweep UE Lady Warriors
25-22    25-28    25-18

- Looking Good -
The defending Champion Lady Archers never lost a single match last year,
en route to eventually winning the Championship -
and that is their simple game plan for this Season 74 too. 

Who will Rise up to Challenge the Lady Archers in the Finals ?

- Lady Eagles Bounce Back -
Beat Bulldogs in Four

25-7     25-20     17-25     25-19

The previous week's loss to the Lady Tigers
 is one game, I'm sure, the Lady Eagles would rather forget.
Alyssa Valdez managed, if i remember correctly, only 9 points, in that loss.

And this time, she is determined to send a strong message -

[is all business] and scores 30 big ones for Ateneo.


Veteran Maricar Nepomuceno takes it upon herself
to lead her lady Bulldog team mates.

Here, Maricar streches for a point.

 That's Andrea Marzan [#14] challenging the Lady Eagles' D.

 Ivy Jisel Perez [#2[ blocks Gretchen Ho.

NU's Carmina Aganon [#4] attacks.
NU manages to take Set #3.

But Ateneo  -  with Valdez' 30 points, and ample support from

 Dzi Gervacio,

 A Nacachi,

and of course,
Team Captain Fille St. Merced Cainglet

- prevails.

Team mates greet Libero Den Den Lazaro a Happy B'Day on court after the W.

Belated Greetings Denden!

Weekend # 3 - Friday

Remembering A Press Press Con for Different Reasons

Last Jan.20, Friday, at the Discovery Suites in Pasig City, I attended a Press Brief for the Korean Team vs Phil Azklals friendly slated for the next day, Jan.21.  It was work for me - taking photos for press/blog release [for my boss that is].  Simple/decent/"usable" photos of the personalities involved are usually enough.  But when I came and met with Mr. Rick Olivares' journ students from the Ateneo at the brief [they were there to get some hands on experience] I knew that I would remember the press brief for different reasons other than that of the presence of the Korean Team and/or members of Team Azkals. [No offense meant here]

Am quite acquianted with Paolo, Anna, Meg, Lou, Arlette, Gia, Kiko  [All students of Mr. O]. Since way back 1st Sem last year, I've sat in several times, to listen to resource speakers like Chiqui Roa Puno, James Velasquez, a professional chef [I forget his name], TJ Manotoc, Ernie Sarmiento  share their experiences with the class and I actually was a resource speaker myself {twice around} in Rick's class.

Taking a few snaps of the kids was just plain fun for me [the most interesting pictures being that of Gia Jamias with Dennis Wolf and Rob Gier - because I just tripped on teasing Gia being with the 2 jocks - teasing her saying " You and I sitting on a tree - K I _ _ _ _ _ _ ! [wWe all know that Cornettos TV commercial, don't we?] as I was taking photos of her with George and Rob.
Wala lang - I even posted an entry a few weeks back, particularly with 2 photos of Gia and captioned with the above hinted lyrics in particular [albeit altered].

'Twas a light day for me  - not having to shoot any PBA , D-League or UFL or UAAP match [I need a break every now and then] - that Friday.  Of course I executed the cursory press brief photos which were downloaded right after lunch, but as far as this blog is concerned it's the coeds' photos, that I enjoyed taking, which I'd rather post.

 Kiko and Gia  [take three]

 Mr. Rick Olivares briefs his journ students. [take four]

Paolo and his "PA"  [take two]

 Gia and Dennis

 That's Gia on the left, Lou [holding the ID], Rick [w the trophy], 
Paolo [in pink], Meg and Anna on the cubicle behind [upper left], 
Arlette in the middle [behind], and Kiko [in black, standing].

 Take three, for good measure.
