Transferee Verutiao shines in NCAA debut for Arellano

MANILA, Philippines – Given the chance to start for Arellano University after starting setter Rhea Ramirez sustained a mild injury, transferee Sarah Verutiao shrugged off her nerves and came up with a memorable debut.

Ramirez was Arellano's setter when the Lady Chiefs made a remarkable run to the NCAA crown in Season 92, but a left shoulder injury forced head coach Obet Javier to sit out the playmaker for their first game of 2018 against the Mapua Lady Cardinals.

"Sinabi ko na, ako na 'to. Ito na ang pagkakataon ko na maglaro," she added.
