Jaja Santiago and Saitama Ageo Medics came out at the top of their group and managed to snag fifth place in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 women’s tournament.

Ageo Medics bested Okayama in four sets, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 25-20, in the 5th to 8th ranking round, Sunday at the Saitama Prefectural Budokan.

The National University product poured in yet another double-digit outing with 11 points, including two blocks.

Syuka Kaneda came through with 14 markers on 11 attacks, two blocks, and an ace for the sixth place Okayama.
