MANILA, Philippines – With an impressive streak of 30 consecutive wins spanning four years in NCAA games, the College of St. Benilde Lady Blazers continued their dominance by sweeping the Emilio Aguinaldo Lady Generals with scores of 25-15, 25-14, 25-23 on Wednesday at the Filoil EcoOil Arena, setting the stage for their pursuit of a three-peat in NCAA Season 99 women’s volleyball.

The Lady Blazers, armed with their championship-winning roster, have maintained an unparalleled level of performance, securing two consecutive title sweeps in previous seasons.

Despite facing challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, which halted their season for seven games four years ago, and navigating through injuries, such as those experienced by former skipper and MVP Mycah Go, who returned after a year due to knee injuries, the team remains focused on their ultimate goal – winning another championship.

“We don’t dwell on our unbeaten streak or past championships. We always say we’re starting from scratch,” said Go, emphasizing their collective drive to claim another title.

Although the Lady Blazers encountered a brief setback in the third set, trailing the Lady Generals, they regrouped, refocused their strategies, and secured victory by winning six of the last eight points.

“Our toughest opponent is ourselves. We relaxed at one point, thinking the game was already in hand,” explained Go, highlighting the team’s need to maintain focus throughout the match.

In men’s volleyball, EAC triumphed over CSB in a closely contested match, showcasing their determination to replicate or surpass their previous season’s Final Four finish. Led by Jan Ruther Abor’s impressive performance off the bench with 26 points, including 25 kills, alongside contributions from Marvin Williams Romero and captain Kenneth Batiancila, EAC displayed their potential for a strong season ahead.
