MANILA—The University of Santo Tomas added to Ateneo de Manila University’s woes with a 25-19, 25-23, 25-14 sweep in the UAAP Season 85 women's volleyball on Wednesday at the Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.

Rookie Regina Jurado shone with 15 points on 12-of-23 attacks and three service aces which she made all in the third frame, while Eya Laure got 10 points, 12 digs, and six excellent receptions as the Golden Tigresses improved to 4-2.

Rookie setter Cassie Carballo, who tossed 16 excellent sets, also activated middle blockers Imee Hernandez and Kecelyn Galdones with nine and seven points, respectively, for UST.

"Nakaexecute kami, medyo malinis-linis yung galaw namin. Naovercome namin yung ano, I think wala kaming service error today napakasarap sa pakiramdam na lalabas kami na wala masyadong unforced errors," said UST coach Kung Fu Reyes.

Vanie Gandler delivered 13 points for the losing side while Faith Nisperos and Lyann De Guzman also netted 11 points apiece for the Blue Eagles, which slumped to a 1-5 win-loss slate.
