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.

Rebisco Volleyball League: NU crushes UMT for third straight

NU crushes UMT for third straight RBL win
by rick olivares

The University of Mindanao Tagum started the match with an ace and a down the line shot from Shania Verana as the Davao Del Norte squad kept pace with powerhouse Nazareth School of National University, 9-8, in the first set.

However, four successive points by Alyssa Solomon, Nicole Magsarile, and Camille Lamina, aided by an unfortunate attack error by UMT’s Sheena Gallentes saw the UAAP Girls’ three-peat champions right their ship and it was smooth sailing from there.

NU took the match in two sets, 25-14 and 25-15, to go 3-0 in Pool A of the Rebisco Volleyball League at the Sta. Rosa Sports Complex in Laguna. NU kept pace with Hope Christian High School that also totes a 3-0 slate.

The girls of head coach Raymond Castillo have thus far bested Holy Family Academy of Pampanga, Leyte National High School, and now, University of Mindanao Tagum.

“Against NU, dapat you play the game of your life and may halong suwerte,” lamented UMT coach Michael Angelo Paulo. “We had our chances early in the game when NU had receive problems but masyadong malalim yung bench nila. Kahit sino ipasok mo diyan gagawa. Kung may off-day yung isa, yung iba maaring hindi.”

Paulo’s squad fell to 1-2 with their only win coming against Holy Family Academy, 25-17 and 25-20 in the second day of competition.

Starters for NSNU:
Michaela Belen, Faith Nisperos, Camille Lamina, Barbie Jamili, Nicole Magsarile, and
Jennifer Nierva.

Starters for UMT:
Sheena Gallentes, Maxinne Tayag, Breyanna Sasil, Honey Sotis, Bianca Ordoña, and Cindy Balante.
