CEBU CITY, Philippines — The reigning Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (Cesafi) women’s volleyball champion, the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Lady Panthers, and the runners-up, the University of San Carlos (USC) Lady Warriors, started their campaign in the Shakey’s Super League National Invitational women’s volleyball tournament at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Manila.

A total of 10 teams comprised of collegiate women’s volleyball squads are competing in the annual pre-season tournament.

To recall, the USPF Lady Panthers bowed out of the tournament early last year after losing to the formidable De La Salle University Lady Spikers, in three straight sets, 14-25, 15-25, 19-25, at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan, Metro Manila.
