Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

La Salle Lipa wins third straight RVL match

La Salle Lipa wins third straight RVL match
by rick olivares

The De La Salle Lipa Green Chevrons encountered some resistance from the University of San Jose Recoletos but ultimately, had too much talent, to win, 25-18 and 25-12, to remain unbeaten in three matches in the Rebisco Volleyball League at the Sta. Rosa Sports Complex in Laguna.

Behind the scoring of Mirgie Bautista and Alleiah Malaluan and the expert setting of Janel Maraguinot, the Green Chevrons looked to win big in the first set.

But USJR, winless thus far, came roaring back. But Bautista scored on two consecutive attacks that gave De La Salle Lipa the lead.

While the girls admitted to the pressure on them, head coach Ronwald Dimaculangan said they shouldn't be concerned with what they cannot control as they are a young team. "What we can do is play good defense and focus. That will allow us to attack.”

Dimaculangan also down played the tag of tournament favorites along with National University. “They are good. As for us, we will just worry about that if and when we meet up. Right now, it’s one game at a time for us.”

In other RVL matches, Hope Christian High School, with coach Jerry Yee unavailable, looked to roll over Leyte National High School after taking the first set in relatively easy fashion, 25-9. Come the second set, Leyte led 10-7 before HCHS behind Mycah Go, Irah Jaboneta, and Chenae Basarte put it all together for a 25-16 second set win and a sweep; their third win in as many matches.
