MANILA, Philippines—An ecstatic Jose Rizal University barged into the win column of the NCAA Season 99 women’s volleyball tournament at San Andres Gym on Wednesday.

Coach Mia Tioseco expressed her excitement as the Lady Bombers bounced back from their loss over Perpetual Help on Sunday and breathed life into their Final Four bid after defeating Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-20, 25-20, 25-23.

“I’m happy that they got to feel and realize that that’s their game,” said Tioseco in Filipino. “We want to make the Final Four but more importantly, I also want the younger ones to be able to fight during games. They should keep fighting.”
