QUEZON CITY--With one game left to play in the eliminations of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference, the Motolite-Ateneo Lady Eagles find themselves on top with a 10-3 record and a solid footing in the best-of-three semifinals.

“Well first when we joined this tournament we really didn’t expect anything, we just want to play.” said Coach Oliver Almadro.

He also added that he and the team didn’t really expect to make it to the semifinals, and making it this far is an added bonus.

The Motolite-Ateneo Lady Eagles have showed dominance the entire conference despite having a relatively young roster behind the inspired plays of UAAP Season 80 Best Setter Deanna Wong, Kat Tolentino, Maddie Madayag, team captain Bea De Leon, Ponggay Gaston and rookie Vanessa Gandler.

Almadro has also been very grateful about how Motolite’s support of the team has truly inspired the players and the coaching staff.

Motolite’s partnership with the Ateneo Lady Eagles volleyball team is a perfect match as it aligns with the brand’s vision of helping Philippine sports.

It has been well documented that Motolite has been a staunch backer of motor sports, billiards, basketball, and of course boxing, having supported multiple time world champion and now Senator Manny Pacquiao even when he was just a fledgling young boxer out of General Santos City.
