The Lady Jaguars, who lost to the Lady Warriors in last year’s championship round, took off to a hot start, cooled off a bit in the third set, but finished off the champs in a dominating fourth set to make a return trip to the finals.

“We feel overwhelmed because we really prepared for this,” said USJ-R’s Maybelle Cabaron, who rocked the USC defense with her powerful spikes.

Her teammate Daniella Alfeche, who was very emotional after that loss to USC in the finals last year, said this win was huge for the team.

“We’ve been dreaming about this, that we’ll make it back to the championship again,” she said.
