SKIPPER Cesca Racraquin and top hitter Nieza Viray continued their fine play as San Beda enjoyed a much more comfortable win this time after a shaky opener in the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament.

Racraquin praised her teammates as they made some improvement to score a straight-sets win over Perpetual Help following a tough five-setter against Jose Rizal University.

Viray delivered 20 markers this time after a 19-point performance in against JRU, while racraquin matched her 13-point output in the opener.

“Kasi napansin ko noong first game namin sa JRU, medyo malamya 'yung mga teammates ko. Hindi lang sila, pati ako,” said Racraquin. 

“So itong game na ito, sabi ko sa kanila before mag-start, sabi ko talaga, 'Guys kailangan nating maging aggressive sa lahat ng gagawin natin sa game today, sa offense, sa defense, sa lahat, kasi kailangan nating lumaban kasi pride natin ito.’” she added. 

Trisha Paras also delivered for San Beda, scoring eight after a three-point output in the first match.  

SBC joined defending champion Arellano University and College of St. Benilde at the top with 2-0 records.
