The University of Santo Tomas Tigresses opened their day with a two set trouncing of the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, 21-15 and 21-16, extending their winning streak to four wins.
The FEU lady spikers found no answer for the fiery Cherry Rodrinas, whose spikes and services aces proved too much for the tandem of Pons and Simborio. Though the FEU spikers would manage to force their opponents to an error now and then to boost their own score, the UST blitz would prove too much to handle. Unable to respond with the same vigor offensively or to limit the scoring for UST’s Rodrinas and Rivera by owning the net, FEU could only watch as the Tigresses bagged their second straight set in thrity-one minutes.
Total match time: 31 mins.

The University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses extended their winning run to five games, after routing the University of the Philippines two sets to none, 21-6, and 21-14, on the third game day of the UAAP Season 77 beach volleyball tournament, Wednesday at UE Caloocan.
The hard-hitting duo of Cherry Rondina and Jane Rivera almost effortlessly overpowered UP’s Hannah Mangulabnan and Arylle Magtalas, hitting their 21st point and holding the UP spikers to a mere six points. Rivera and Rondina’s fiery offensive would continue in the opening minutes of the set, but the UP spikers would finally come alive to respond to their opponents’ attacks. UP would bring the score to 13-17, but another fiery rally by the feisty Rondina would push UST to matchpoint.
Total match time: 24 mins.
