The CPU Volleyball Team Girls represented Western Visayas in the Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League Tournament of Champions held at Ninoy Aquino Stadium on 13-19 January.
Of course, to earn the right to represent Western Visayas region, they defeated all participating teams in the regional version of the volleyball league.
By the way, the team grabbed the championship in the Western Visayas PRISAA meet held 8-13 January at San Jose, Antique.
The recent Shakey’s Girls’ Volleyball League Tournament of Champions was participated in by the country’s best, the champions of their respective regions.
Thus, the CPU Volleyball Team Girls battled the teams from the powerhouse Hope Christian School, De La Salle-Lipa, University of San Jose-Recoletos, Leyte National High School, Angeles University Foundation, Ateneo de Davao and Baguio City National High School.
The teams from New Zealand and Australia made the league more challenging for our young netters.
CPU made it to the semi-finals and battled the New Zealand team for bronze.
Here’s how the Volleyball New Zealand website article “NZL Junior Womens Bronze Medallists in Philippines” described the game between New Zealand and CPU:
While the CPU team didn’t make it to the final three, I’m sure their participation made an impression. They are a strong team.
We have a National Champion Team in the making. All CPU needs to do is strengthen support in all aspects.
The wonderful thing about winning national and international sports competitions, like volleyball tournaments, is the university gets good publicity and promotion.
I’m sure the teams and the audience as well, know now that there’s a school named “Central Philippine University” in Iloilo City, Western Visayas, Philippines.
Definitely, our sports ambassadors deserve the best from our Alma Mater, isn’t it Centralians?

Some call it ‘pocket reunions’ or you may call it a visit. Whatever, the fact is Centralians are meeting and gathering in New Zealand.
We know there are Centralians in Wellington, Oamaru, Dunedin, Christchurch and other places of New Zealand.
We could assume they also find time to meet and fellowship and recall their lives as students of CPU.
Here are some of the Centralian encounters in 2013.
On 1 December 2013, joining the fellowship of fellow Ilonggos in Oamaru and Timaru are Centralians: Marilyn Cox, Helen Grace Bayot Banzuelo, Jonan and Jewel Castillon.
Some Centralians living in Auckland, their spouses and children gathered at Joe and Leah Soliva’s house on 28 December 2013.
The Quimbas (Boyet and Sharon), Sanglaps (Nathan and Phoebe) and Castillons (Jonan, Jewel and Jadyn) were there.
On 29-31 December 2013, the Castillons took time out for life with the Jarbadans who are living in Tauranga. From Auckland, they drove 2.5 hours to reach the place
Tauranga is a progressive city in the Bay of Plenty region of North Island, New Zealand.
During their visit to Hamilton, the Castillons and Jarbadans took time to meet with Gene and Marj Anotado and Joy Lam.
Hamilton is the main city of the Waikato Region in the North Island of New Zealand. It’s a 1.5 hour-drive from Tauranga.
The meetings are surely memorable moments for all and they’re hoping to have another chance to see each other.
Based on the Aotearoa Centralians FB page, there are 44 alumni living in New Zealand.
Let us hope that Centralians in New Zealand will have a big gathering in the near future.
