AFP official booed out of forum Skipper Cesca Raqraquin said Friday they don’t feel the pressure ahead of their first crack at the title, even if they are going up against two-time champion Arellano.“There’s no pressure on our part, because we’re the challengers,” said Raqraquin in Filipino at Filoil Flying V Centre. “The pressure will be on them [the Lady Chiefs] because they want to go for the back-to-back titles.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe Lady Red Spikers advanced to the Finals with a commanding three-set win over University of Perpetual Help, 25-21, 25-15, 25-23, in the Final Four.San Beda didn’t even need to use its twice-to-beat advantage, a perk given to the Lady Red Spikers as the no.2 team in the league after finishing with an 8-1 record and 21 points. San Beda will head into its first championship series in the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament, but the magnitude of the event hasn’t dimished the confidence of the first-timers.ADVERTISEMENT Raqraquin said they just have to think about themselves play their own game, instead of thinking of the magnitude of the championship series.“We’ll just have to play our own game and focus on ourselves,” said Raqraquin who had nine points in the game against the Lady Altas. “We just have to be relaxed and God will guide us through.” Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games PLAY LIST 01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon Citycenter_img 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH LATEST STORIES MOST READ View commentslast_img
