The second semester of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines resumes this weekend, headlined by the remaining first round games of the volleyball tournament at The Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City.
In men’s volleyball action, Season 72 finalist Far Eastern University (FEU) faces Adamson University (AdU) in the first game, while defending champion University of Santo Tomas (UST) battles National University (NU) in the second game. The women’s draw, meanwhile, sees undefeated De La Salle University and UST in action against University of the East (UE) and NU respectively.
The Chess tournament, held this year at FEU’s Engineering building, unfolds on the same day at 8:30 a.m.
The Tamaraws, defending champions in the men’s division, goes on a collision course against third-seeded UST in the curtain-raiser. In the women’s division, defending titleholders FEU battle DLSU in the opening salvo.
The juniors division, with University of the Philippines (UP) not competing in the tournament, will see defending champions Adamson University taking a bow this weekend. In the opener, however, seventh-seed De La Salle Zobel will face runner-up FEU.
Lawn Tennis action gets under way at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center in Manila with UE battling DLSU in the opening match of the men’s division at 9:00 a.m. Women’s play will begin at noon, beginning with the DLSU-UP fixture.
The Softball tournament opens the second round of play with a tripleheader at the Rosario Sports Complex, opened by the UE-ADMU match and followed soon after by the UP-UST and AdU-DLSU collisions.
