MANILA, Philippines—And Cinderella finally has a tiara.

Going up against perennial power San Sebastian College Lady Stags, the Arellano University Chiefs rose out of nothing to claim their first ever NCAA Women’s Volleyball crown in the second game of the best-of-three series 3-0, 25-23, 25-19, 26-24, Friday afternoon at the Arena in San Juan.

Arellano followed up their 3-1 victory in Game 1 and pounced on the Lady Stags–winner of 23 titles including an unprecedented 10 straight–for the title sweep.

Down 17-19, the Lady Chiefs regrouped for the victory to claim the third set in extra points to the jubilation of the girls in blue.
