V.League: Jaja Santiago, Saitama complete weekend sweep of Kurobe

Saitama manhandled Kurobe in straight sets, 25-14, 26-24, 25-12, to complete the weekend sweep in the 2021-22 V.League Division 1 women’s tournament, Sunday at the Saiden Chemical Arena.

Jaja Santiago continued her stellar play with another solid net defense outing, collecting four blocks to go with six attacks for 10 points. Her blocking performance alone tied the whole AquaFairies output.

After a close second frame that saw the Ageo Medics barely winning, 26-24, they went out with more fire in the next. That put the AquaFairies away, 25-12.

Mami Uchiseto led Saitama anew with 17 points including three service aces. Meanwhile, Yuka Sato chalked up 15 points of her own.

Kyoko Aoyagi and Brazilian import Lorenne Teixeira also joined the fun, combining for 17 points.

The Ageo Medics have won five of their last six matches to hike their win-loss record to 10-6, just outside of the Final 3.

Pimpichaya Kokram paced Kurobe with 11 points, while Hinano Michisita got eight.

After going off for 20 yesterday, Merete Lutz saw herself held to just five points.

The AquaFairies sunk to 2-14 for 11th place.

Saitama will have the next week off as its weekend games against NEC were postponed due to Covid-19.

Santiago and her Ageo Medics will return on the taraflex on Jan. 29, 12:00 PM, when they face Himeji at the Wink Gymnasium.
