The Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) girls’ volleyball team successfully retained its crown after a dramatic come-from-behind win against Cebu International School (CIS) in the finals of the 2022 International Schools Activities Conference (ISAC). It was the 4th consecutive title achieved by the school after capturing the last three championships prior to the pandemic.
The SISC Monarchs forged a final showdown with CIS after overcoming British School Manila and Brent International School Baguio in straight sets during the elimination round. After losing the first set, the Lady Monarchs took the second and third sets to emerge victorious and retain the volleyball title they had won three years ago.
The members of the team are Chiara Penera, Kassandra Galing, Sophia Oblena, Chrizel Gabriel, Katrina Aguirre, Yannie Macasieb, Blair Delos Santos, Amanda Balneg, Mariella Caco and Athena Sullano with Coach Jack Locquiao. The team went through the tournament undefeated to complete their championship run.
Coach Rory Mansbridge, head of the Southville Athletics department has this to say.
“For this new batch to continue the legacy of our previous alumni champions I must say I am so incredibly proud of coach Jack, the girls, and the entire coaching staff for keeping the trophy at home in Southville.”
