MICH Morente just added more drama to arguably the most intense women’s volleyball rivalry in the UAAP as the former Ateneo spiker has been confirmed to be currently enrolled at La Salle.

Morente, though, is not yet eligible to play for the Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament.

However, a couple of sources confirmed to that the hard-hitting spiker is now an AB Psychology student in the Taft-based university.

But the former Lady Eagle, who was removed from the Ateneo roster for the season due to academic deficiencies, will have to complete her residency before she gets to be back on action for Season 81.

Morente played a vital role in the Katipunan-based school’s first title in 2013 but was sparingly used in the 2014 title run. She was also ruled ineligible to play in 2015 due to academic deficiencies but returned the following year as the Lady Eagles finished a bridesmaid to the Lady Spikers.
