San Beda no longer intimidated by Arellano, says Cesca Racraquin

After losing five straight sets to the Arellano Lady Chiefs — including two sets in Game One of the NCAA Season 93 Women’s Volleyball Finals — the San Beda University Lady Red Spikers were floored. Whatever they did, the defending champions had an answer for it.

But come the third set of Game One, the Lady Red Spikers went all-out. Though failing to notch a win in Game One, the young San Beda squad were able to give Arellano a scare, as they were able to extend the match to a deciding fifth set.

“Sobrang nakaka-build ng confidence kahit papaano yung nangyari,” shared San Beda’s ace spiker Cesca Racraquin after the game.

“Nakita namin na hindi naman namin kailangan matakot sa kanila kasi kaya naman namin silang i-dominate.

“Naipakita namin yun sa third set na kaya rin namin silang i-contain,” declared the Lady Red Spiker sophomore, as Arellano were limited to just 15 points during the third frame.

The 21-year-old outside hitter tallied 21 markers during the contest.

After the loss, the Lady Red Spikers walked out of the dugout of the Filoil Flying V Centre with their heads up high. And after experiencing what it’s like to play in the biggest of stages, they now believe that they can send the series to a winner-take-all affair.

“Wala dapat ikalungkot. Wala dapat ikasama ng loob, wala dapat ikaiyak kasi ginawa namin ang dapat naming gawin,” the 5-foot-7 spiker shared.

“Hindi pa tapos hindi pa sila champion and may chance pa kami na makuha ang game sa susunod.”
