Defending champion College St. Benilde guns for the solo lead as it tackles Mapua in the women’s division of the 92nd NCAA volleyball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan City.

The Lady Blazers pulled off a pair of come-from-behind wins, one against the Perpetual Help Lady Altas, 17-25, 25-20, 26-24, 25-17, in Monday’s season opener and the other over Letran, 25-27, 23-25, 25-22, 25-7, 15-12, to jump into a four-way logjam on top.

The other teams at the helm with two wins apiece are last year’s runner-up San Sebastian, San Beda and Lyceum of the Phl U.

Jeanette Panaga, the reigning Finals MVP, and Ranya Musa have been carrying the load for the Lady Blazers as the two are in the top five of the league’s best scoring list with averages of 17 points apiece.
