The Muntinlupa Volleyball Club proved that its dominance of the beach volleyball scene in July was no fluke when it repeated its title conquest in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions of the Philippine Volleyball Federation-Tanduay Athletics U18 Beach Volleyball Championships at the indoor/outdoor sandcourts of the Tanduay Athletics Volleyball Center (formerly Cantada Sports Center) recently in Taguig City.
Muntinlupa Volleyball Club beat St. Thomas More of Bacoor, Cavite in the girls’ division, while its boys’ team edged Prenza National High School of Marilao, Bulacan.
There were nine teams in the girls’ competition and eight teams in the boys’.
All participants, officials and guests were treated to a day of unlimited food, drinks and great fun, typical of events hosted by the Cantada family, led by PVF president Edgardo “Tito Boy’ Cantada.
The tournament boasts of top-notch officials with PVF Managing Director and many times UAAP Women’s Volleyball Commissioner Dr. Otie Camangian as Tournament Director.
Among the referees were PVF’S FIVB International Referees Nestor Bello and Yul Benosa, National Referee Level 3 Bob Malenab and National Referee Edz Lagmay.
No entry fees were charged to the participants. All officials and coaches went home with a gift bag containing premium Tanduay products, Spam, Libby Corned Beef, Piña Queso de Bola and imported chocolates. All the participants were also given Tanduay Athletics T-Shirts and Caps.
The winners were awarded medals and boxes/bags of imported chocolates and stuffed toys for the girls’ champion team.
The tourney also paid tribute to the tournament’s late benefactor Lucio “Bong” Tan Jr.
