COLLEGE of St. Benilde dominated Letran, 25-22, 25-11, 25-20, to start its campaign in the NCAA Season 93 women’s volleyball tournament on Friday at The Arena in San Juan.
Skipper Ranya Musa and Rachel Austero led the way for the Lady Blazers with 14 points apiece, while Marites Pablo and Klarisa Abriam chipped in nine and eight markers, respectively.
The Season 91 champions are now tied with opening day winners San Sebastian College and defending champion Arellano University.
“Naka-adapt na sila sa sistema pero hindi pa nila totally ma-run ‘yung gusto naming mangyari,” said CSB coach Arnold Laniog, who replaced Macky Cariño.
“Kanina nakita ko na parang nag-aantayan kung sino magi-initiate o sino magpu-push para gumalaw, eventually naka-adjust na,” he added.
Miracle Mendoza finished with five points for Letran, to fall in a tie with Emilio Aguinaldo College and Mapua with identical 0-1 win-loss records.
