MANILA, Philippines — Letran sprung back from a first-set defeat as it eked out a 22-25, 25-10, 25-18, 25-13 victory over Emilio Aguinaldo College yesterday to set in motion its campaign in the 95th NCAA women’s volleyball tournament at the Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

Chamberlaine Cuñada fired away a match high 24 hits that she laced with two kill blocks and three service aces while also coming through with 17 digs for the Lady Knights.

“My team is composed mostly of rookies and sophomores and understandably played tense in the first set,” said Letran coach Mike Inoferio.

“Good thing my players calmed down in the second set, and that really started it all for us to play well,” he added.

Rookies Dame Iam Ohya and Julianne Castro had a sluggish start but got their bearing in time to chip in 15 and 11 hits, respectively.

In men’s action, EAC relied on the power-spiking duo of Joshua Mina and Dannich Melad as it smashed Letran, 25-19, 25-18, 25-17.

Mina unloaded 16 points while Melad scattered 15 in the triumph.

In the juniors division, the Brigadiers turned back the Squires, 30-28, 25-18, 28-26.
