Jaja Santiago continued to impress in her Japan stint as the Filipina middle blocker helped the Saitama Ageo Medics notch their second straight win in the Japan Women’s V. Premier League on Sunday.

After a 12-point debut the day before, the 6-foot-5 National University product delivered the same output in the Ageo Medics’ 25-15, 25-19, 25-22, demolition of PFU Blue Cats for a 2-0 win-loss record.

Santiago smashed in nine kills in 15 attempts with two kill blocks and service ace.

Ageo Medics will face the Denso Airybees on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Marck Espejo and his Oita Miyoshi club absorbed another setback after falling short to JTEKT 25-23, 20-25, 19-25, 15-25.

The Weisse Adler dropped to 0-4.
