August 30, 2012–Challenged to overthrow last year’s defending champion, the College of Computer Studies and Engineering (CCSE) girl squad finally overpowered the College of Nursing (CON) during the women’s volleyball championship match at the college gym.
CON took the first set with a three-point advantage over the challenging team. Recovering from the 25-22 score, CCSE easily owned the next two sets, leading the game with twice the opponent’s score, clinching 25-12 and 25-14 respectively.
The CON struggled against the already dominating squad on a neck and neck exchange of rallies at the end of the fourth set, which concluded to a 26-24 advantage for the former.
It was a magnificent display of spikes and blocks during the tie breaking round as the two teams tried to dominate one another to decide this year’s champions.
The game concluded with CCSE grabbing the title from CON, adding to the golds and glitters of the already most decorated department.
“They were inspired to do their best with the help of their own team members. Nagkaroon ng coordination at team work among the players kaya ganun naging resulta,” says Engr. Bernardo F. Vallo, coach of the CCSE
“Nahirapan ang CCSE sa CON kasi magaling sila, but they practiced. Nagkaroon sila ng teamwork at naging responsible sila sa mga dapat nilang gawin para sa game,” says CCSE’s playing coach.
