CSB eyes fourth straight win


COLLEGE of St. Benilde (CSB) tries to keep its clamp of the solo lead as it shoots for a fourth straight victory against a winless Emilio Aguinaldo College on Friday in the NCAA Season 97 Volleyball at the Paco Arena.

The Lady Blazers have steamrolled their first three assignments — San Beda, Lyceum of the Philippines University, and Letran — to zoom to the solo lead and are expected to hurdle the Lady Generals, who are still seeking that first win after three setbacks, in their 2:30 p.m. clash.

And CSB is getting the job with its near impeccable execution, almost impenetrable net defense and superb court coverage as it led in spiking percentages, setting, blocking and reception.

“These girls came from my programs at Hope (Christian School) and TIP (Technological Institute of the Philippines) so they know the system,” said CSB coach Jerry Yee.

Skipper Francis Mycah Go has been the team’s leading scorer and one of the main sources of strength along with Jhasmin Gayle Pascual, Jade Gentapa setter, and Cloanne Sophia Mondoñedo. — Joey Villar
