MANILA, Philippines - San Sebastian finally gets to strut its wares in the eighth Shakey’s V-League as it squares off with Southwestern University in a Group A match at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City today.

Adamson and Perpetual Help, meanwhile, dispute the solo lead in Group B as they slug it out in the 2 p.m. match of another exciting twinbill in the first conference of the country’s premier women’s volley league.

Led by guest player and former star Suzanne Roces, SSC is seeing action only for the first time since the league opened shop last April 3 with the Lady Stags raring to get going on a team built around two-time NCAA MVP Joy Benito, Elaine Cruz, Bonsai Mirasol, Bamcie Belen and libero Mae Crisostomo.
SSC, still in search of a second title after scoring a breakthrough win in the 2008 second conference, is out to improve on its back-to-back runner-up finishes last year.

But the Lady Cobras will be out to spoil their debut with the reigning CESAFI champions hoping to ride on their 27-29, 30-28, 25-21, 19-25, 15-13 victory over the FEU Lady Tams last Thursday that evened their card at 1-1.

The Adamson-Perpetual Help match is also a toss-up with two title contenders in the league sponsored by Shakey’s Pizza and backed by Mikasa as official ball and Accel as official outfitter.

“I expect an exciting match-up against Adamson, especially on floor defense. But we will try to sustain our good start,” said Pepetual Help coach Mike Rafael.
