MANILA, Philippines — College of Saint Benilde overpowered Letran, 25-20, 25-18, 25-15, yesterday to seize the solo lead in the 95th NCAA women’s volleyball tournament at the Fil-oil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

With the exception of the liberos, all 11 players that saw action scored at least a point with Klarisa Abriam, Michelle Gamit and Jade Gentapa leading the carnage with six points apiece.

It was the Lady Blazers’ third straight victory that sent them straight to the top and leaving the Arellano U Lady Chiefs, the defending champions who have two wins, at second.

So dominant was CSB that it had the luxury of fielding in Gayle Pascual and Mycah Go, who contributed five hits each.

Letran was on it right in the opening set but CSB pulled away with a four-hit barrage to get the set.

It was the Lady Blazers from there as they took control in the final two sets.

The Lady Knights slipped to 1-1 (win-loss).

In the men’s side, CSB downed Letran, 25-21, 25-16, 25-22, to improve to 2-1. Ruvince Abrot paced the Blazers with 15 points.
