It was not the kind of start defending champion Arellano University wanted but the Lady Chiefs still managed to hurdle gritty Lyceum of the Philippines University, 27-25, 25-20, 25-20, on Friday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

Arellano U got quite a scare in the first set before regaining their bearings to fend off the Lady Pirates to start its four-peat bid on the right track.

“Nagulat ako kasi sa practice ‘di ganun inensayo namin,” said Arellano U coach Obet Javier. “First game jitters nga siguro buti nga na overcome ng mga bata ‘yung pressure.”
