Cesca Racraquin brings San Beda to first win

The Cesca Racraquin-led San Beda University finally made it to the win column of the PVL Collegiate Conference at the expense of the hapless San Sebastian Lady Stags, 25-24, 21-25, 25-20, 25-16, Saturday afternoon at the Filoil Flying V Centre. In a battle of two winless teams, San Beda came out as the winners thanks to the return of their leader, Racraquin. It was Racraquin’s first game after recovering from a mild left knee and ankle injury last week. "Sobrang importante itong [game na ito] sa akin. Kasi for the past games namin na talo kami, I can see na wala silang leader sa loob and parang nasasaktan ako kasi ako yung leader nila tapos wala ako dun," she said. The San Beda ace tallied a total of 18 points, nine from attacks and another nine aces. "Ang focus ko ay mag lead sa team namin para maging isa kami and yun naman, nakatulong naman siya dun sa panalo namin today." Nieza Viray added 15 points while Satrriani Espiritu chipped in 13 for San Beda. Joyce Sta. Rita and Sofia Sarmiento paced the Lady Stags with 13 and 10 points respectively. The Lady Red Spikers are now at 1-3 and will face Perpetual on August 19 while the Lady Stags will continue to seek for their first win on the same day against Benilde......»»

PVL: San Beda, SSC-R hunt for first win

Winless teams San Beda University and San Sebastian College clash to end their respective droughts Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The match begins at 2:00 p.m. and will air via livestream. Both squads are looking for their first victory after suffering setbacks in their first string of assignments. The Lady Red Spikers dropped their first three games and played in their last two matches without injured skipper Cesca Racraquin. San Beda bowed down to College of St. Benilde last week in four sets. The Lady Stags are worse. Fielding a team with only Joyce Sta. Rita returning from last year’s core, the inexperienced wards of head coach Roger Gorayeb got whipped by their first four rivals. The Lady Stags, overall, won only one set in 13 frames played.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Maroons go for rebound win

After absorbing its first defeat in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference, University of the Philippines wants a mighty bounce back as the Lady Maroons face a struggling San Sebastian College Wednesday. The lone women’s action is set at 4:00 p.m. at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The game will air via livestream. UP sports a 1-1 win-loss record after bowing down to University of Sto. Tomas, 25-22, 20-25, 18-25, 24-26, last Sunday. Despite the loss, the Lady Maroons saw the rise of rookie Nicole Magsarile. The freshman scored 12 points to backup incoming fourth year Isa Molde, who had 13 markers and 21 digs. The duo are expected to display the same intensity and offensive firepower against the Lady Stags. SSC-R, composed of rookies with only one experienced player in Joyce Sta. Rita, is winless in three games tied with NCAA Season 93 runner-up San Beda University. The Lady Stags only won one set so far in the tournament. It came from SSC-R’s four-set loss to University of Perpetual Help the last time out.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
