Repeat-seeking De La Salle University dominated University of the East, 25-16, 25-15, 25-9, Saturday and claimed a seat in the Final Four of the 79th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Lady Spikers stormed to their fourth straight victory and improved their win-loss record to 9-2 tied with archrival Ateneo de Manila for a share of the lead. The Taft-based squad formalized its entry to its ninth straight Final Four appearance.

Head coach Ramil De Jesus had the liberty to tweak with his rotation as the Lady Spikers pulled away early in each of the sets to dictate the match.

UE had no answer to DLSU's relentless attacks as the Lady Warriors dropped their 10th match in 11 games.
