Jose Rizal University hammered Emilio Aguinaldo College in straight sets, 25-20, 25-16, 25-16, and squeezed into the top four of the NCAA Season 93 women’s volleyball tournament Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Lady Bombers secured a 2-1 record while the Generals remained in the lookout for their first win as they dropped to 0-3.


Shola Alvarez unleashed her might on the Lady Generals as she led JRU’s assault with 24 points, three more than what her teammates put up combined.

JRU head coach Mia Tioseco said it was their five-set win over last season’s runner-up San Sebastian that helped her team build the confidence.

“The San Sebastian win was really a factor,” said Tioseco in Filipino. “The girls now believe that they can compete and they were more aggressive today than before.”

“I hope this continues and I also saw that they can easily recover and compose themselves when they get rattled.”

Alvarez, who had 28 points against the Lady Stags, echoed her coach’s sentiments saying they should be prepared for the remaining games.

“I wish this continues for us and of course our next opponents aren’t pushovers so we have to train even harder,” said Alvarez in Filipino.

JRU rained down on EAC’s defenses scoring on 38 spikes and six service aces while the Lady Generals mustered just 19 hits.

Ladeisheen Magbanua had nine points to lead EAC.
