MANILA, Philippines – The Shakey’s Super League National Invitationals championship is won by the La Salle Lady Spikers as they outlast Adamson Lady Falcons in a sudden death match. In order to win the inaugural Shakey’s Super League National Invitationals championship, the La Salle Lady Spikers overcame an early 1-0 series disadvantage against the Adamson Lady Falcons and won back-to-back games.

On August 13, La Salle, the UAAP defending champion, defeated Adamson in a pivotal Game 3 to win the championship, winning in decisive sets of 25-19, 25-22, and 25-17. The Lady Spikers displayed their talent by winning the rubber match with scores of 25-23, 25-12, and 25-18, mimicking their previous victory.

Noel Orcullo, La Salle’s deputy, emphasized their simultaneous quest of accomplishment and visibility. The squad was pleased to find themselves winning an unexpected championship while looking to gain experience. Orcullo stressed the strategic importance of the game’s insights, highlighting how this victory highlighted areas for growth and allowed them to make necessary adjustments for the forthcoming UAAP season.

Shevana Laput emerged as a star performer in the suspenseful final series, making a lasting impression with her remarkable 20.3-point average. Her outstanding performance highlighted her versatility on the court and garnered her honors as the Best Opposite Spiker in addition to the coveted title of Tournament Most Valuable Player.

The team’s coordinated efforts were also crucial to their success. Amie Provido, who won Second Best Middle Blocker, and Alleiah Malaluan, who won Second Best Outside Spiker, both made a significant contribution to the match with 10 points each. Laput, who is always a force to be reckoned with, scored a game-high 13 points, displaying her dependability and tenacity.

La Salle dominated right away, winning the opening set and maintaining their momentum into the second with a commanding 18-7 advantage. This initial edge served as the foundation for their subsequent victories.

Despite the Lady Falcons’ heroic comeback, which saw them cut the deficit to just two points at 21-23 in the second set, La Salle’s teamwork was clear as important players like Provido and First Best Middle Blocker Thea Gagate planned crucial moves from the middle.

It became evident during the final game that La Salle’s outstanding success during UAAP Season 85 was not an isolated achievement. Their skill continued into the third set, which they won with a comfortable 9-point lead at 24-15. Malaluan’s amazing off-the-block kill put an end to their efforts and gave the Lady Spikers their second championship victory of the year.

On the other team, Lucille Almonte of Adamson stood out as the lone player to score in the double digits, with a commendable 10 points. The championship series highlighted both individual excellence and the crucial importance of group cooperation and tactical execution, which ultimately helped La Salle win the championship they deserved.

Laput, Malaluan, Provido, and Gagate were also named to the coveted Shakey’s Super Team, joining Adamson’s Best Setter Angelica Alcantara, UST’s Best Libero Detdet Pepito, and First Best Outside Spiker Angeline Poyos. This collective honor attests to the athletes’ outstanding efforts and talent in the exciting world of collegiate volleyball.
