Spikers’ Turf: Best is yet to come for NU-Sta. Elena, says Retamar

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 15:33
MANILA, Philippines---National University-Sta. Elena may have ruled the 2022 Spikers' Turf Open Conference after dethroning the top men's volleyball club, Cignal. But team captain Joshua Retamar believes the best is yet to come for their young squad. The league's Best Setter said the young Nationals haven't shown their full potential yet even after a masterful performance in a club league, where they only lost one game in the elimination round. "I think the team is still at 60 percent because we still have a lot to learn, especially in service, and we still have a lot of lapses when it comes to blocking," said Retamar in Filipino shortly after dethroning Cignal, 25-18, 23-25, 2...

MANILA, Philippines---Arellano escaped a rugged Mapua side, 64-59, in the NCAA Season 98 men's basketball tournament at San Juan Arena on Sunday.
