Cesca Racraquin is back.
The Cesca Racraquin-led San Beda University finally made it to the win column of the PVL Collegiate Conference at the expense of the hapless San Sebastian Lady Stags, 25-24, 21-25, 25-20, 25-16, Saturday afternoon at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
In a battle of two winless teams, San Beda came out as the winners thanks to the return of their leader, Racraquin.
It was Racraquin’s first game after recovering from a mild left knee and ankle injury last week.
"Sobrang importante itong [game na ito] sa akin. Kasi for the past games namin na talo kami, I can see na wala silang leader sa loob and parang nasasaktan ako kasi ako yung leader nila tapos wala ako dun," she said.
The San Beda ace tallied a total of 18 points, nine from attacks and another nine aces.
"Ang focus ko ay mag lead sa team namin para maging isa kami and yun naman, nakatulong naman siya dun sa panalo namin today."
Nieza Viray added 15 points while Satrriani Espiritu chipped in 13 for San Beda.
Joyce Sta. Rita and Sofia Sarmiento paced the Lady Stags with 13 and 10 points respectively.
The Lady Red Spikers are now at 1-3 and will face Perpetual on August 19 while the Lady Stags will continue to seek for their first win on the same day against Benilde.
