De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde started its NCAA Season 97 women’s volleyball tournament with added motivation from its unfinished campaign in Season 95, which was cancelled due to pandemic.

CSB ended its previous stint with a clean 7-0 slate—a feat that gave them a chance at dethroning three-time defending champion Arellano University. But with COVID-19 cutting that campaign short, the Lady Blazers vented their ire instead on the Lady Red Spikers to open Season 97 barrage on the right foot.



Saint Benilde assistant coach Jay Chua said that the players were eager to start anew this season after being forced to settle at home training for the past two years.

“Almost two months lang kami nag-prepare, naka-bubble din kami do’n. Parang hineads-up lang namin ‘yung mga bata na parang habang wala pa, dapat nag-wowork out pa rin,” said Jay Chua.

“Nagpapa-condition sa mga bahay bahay.”

It’s now a relief to get back on the court and pick right up where they left off, with another victory.

“Parang kasi nung after nag-hinto ng season, nainip na sila since two years na ‘yung nawala so parang excited na sila makabalik at makalaro.”
