University of Sto. Tomas came back from a set down to turn back a young but gritty National University side, 23-25, 25-20, 25-19, 25-16, and complete a women's volleyball three-peat in the 2018 University Games in Dumaguete.
Rookie Eya Laure and graduating hitter Sisi Rondina, who hammered three straight points in the closing stretch of the fourth frame to seal the victory, powered the Tigresses to a grand slam.
The Espana-based squad also ruled the men's play after the Tigers outlasted College of St. Benilde in a grueling 25-23, 20-25, 25-21, 20-25, 17-15, championship victory for a repeat crown.
UST earlier, dominated the beach volleyball competition with twin mints in the men's and women's divisions.
