De La Salle took back the top seed in the UAAP Season 79 women’s volleyball tournament after taking down University of Santo Tomas, 25-23, 25-22, 25-21, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Lady Spikers improved to 10-2, the same record as Ateneo, but amassed 30 points as compared to the Lady Eagles’ 29.

The Golden Tigresses, who are still in contention for a spot in the Final Four, slipped to 7-5.

UST skipper Cherry Rondina handed La Salle its fifth straight win when her final attack went out of bounds.

La Salle’s win, however, was met with a major hurdle.

Talisman Kim Kianna Dy sprained her right ankle in the third set, with La Salle leading 6-4, and did not return to the game.

“It was a mild sprain and I hope she can play on Saturday,” said La Salle head coach Ramil De Jesus. “Actually, I was confident because the other players run the same practice drills.”

Desiree Cheng led La Salle with 13 points while Dy had 12 points before leaving the game.

Tin Tiamzon also finished in double figures for the defending champions as she put up 11 points.

Rondina had 13 points to lead UST with EJ Laure and Dimdim Pacres combining for 21.
