San Beda Lady Red Spikers arrest slump in NCAA 95, sweep EAC

Behind Cesca Racraquin, San Beda University halted its losing two-game losing skid in the NCAA Season 95 Women’s Volleyball Tournament, venting its ire on Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-15, 25-16, 27-25, Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. 

The Lady Red Spikers remain in solo fourth with a 4-2 record. On the other hand, the Lady Generals are still winless after six matches.

Cesca Racracquin led the pride with 22 markers, including that smart kill to finish the Lady General’s attempt to extend the match. She also produced nine digs and seven excellent receptions. Her younger sister, reigning Best Libero Daryl, ended with 16-of-32 digs.

Trisha Paras came up huge late in the match, with her two blocks stifling the EAC attempts to virtually seal the win at the net. Her captain then delivered that final point for the victory.

Lynne Matias anchored the offense of the Lady Red Spikers with 19 excellent sets that led to 47 attacks. Last year’s Rookie of the Year and Cesca Racraquin combined for five of San Beda’s seven service aces.

“Siyempre masaya na tapos na ‘yung slump,” a relieved Cesca Racraquin said. “Hopefully magtuluy-tuloy na.”

Head coach Nemesio Gavino Jr. shared that they just needed to regroup in order to get back on track. “Nag-usap-usap lang kami. Kinausap ko ‘yung mga seniors, lalo na ‘yung mga last year na. Kailangan talagang trabahuhin ‘yung mga remaining games.”

Catherine Almazan tried to lead a third-set uprising, but her 10-point performance was not enough to upend the Lady Red Spikers.
