UST Jr. Tigresses, NSNU Lady Bullpups remain unscathed in UAAP Girls’ Volleyball

University of Santo Tomas made quick work of University of the Philippines Integrated School, 25-18, 25-21, 25-11, while Nazareth School of National University swept Adamson University, 25-23, 25-18, 25-21, as the two powerhouses remained perfect in the UAAP Season 82 Girls’ Volleyball Tournament at the Blue Eagle Gym Sunday.

The Junior Tigresses remained on top with a 3-0 card, while the Bullpups are not far behind with a 2-0 record.

In the other match, Far Eastern University-Diliman conquered University of the East, 25-22, 25-20, 25-18.

The Baby Tamaraws moved in a tie with the Baby Falcons at 2-1.

Renee Peñafiel and Regina Jurado tallied 10 points apiece for UST, which dominated the spiking department against its Diliman-based foes 32-10.

The Junior Tigresses had the luxury to dug deep on their bench in the victory.

“Malaking bagay yung nabibigyan ng playing time yung ibang players kasi it’s a way to build their confidence, kasi may mga rotation din kasi kaming gustong tignan,” said UST assistant coach Yani Fernandez.

The Junior Tigresses, however, will miss setter Tanya Narciso for four to five weeks due to a dislocated pinky finger acquired during training.
