MANILA, Philippines – this week at the Ynares Center in Antipolo, the High Speed Hitters made a decisive move to seize sole possession of the fourth position in the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference.

The Foxies mounted a late rally to get as close as 16-18 in the third set, but other than that, they maintained control for the majority of the match. The likes of Kate Santiago, Trisha Tubu, and Alyssa Bertolano, as well as a few PLDT mistakes, helped the Foxies win.

Faith Nisperos had the most points for Akari with 11, followed by Dindin Manabat with 10, Joy Soyud with 7, and Fifi Sharma with 5, respectively.
