Nazareth School of National University bested University of Santo Tomas, 21-19, 22-20, in a duel of undefeated teams in the Girls’ Division of the UAAP Season 82 High School Beach Volleyball Tournament, Saturday at Sands SM By The Bay.

The Lady Bullpups were trailing, 18-19, late in the second frame when Kathrina Epa scored two straight kills to take the lead.

UST lost for the first time in four matches to slip in second place.

De La Salle-Zobel moved up to third at 2-1, as Irah Jaboneta and Gerzel Petallo overcame a slow second set start to beat Ateneo’s Celina Vergeire and Ady Lasala, 21-7, 21-17, .

In the lone girls’ match that went to distance, Adamson University’s Mary Grace Borromeo and Ayesha Juegos rallied from a set down to beat Far Eastern University-Diliman’s Nikka Medina and Alexandra Jungco, 17-21, 21-18, 15-10, for a 2-2 card in fourth place.
