Japanese title holders Hisamitsu Springs made a huge step backwards in the pole-position race for Top 6 in the national women’s volleyball championship.

In Round 15, Hisamitsu got upset by convincingly the worst team in the V-League this season PFU BlueCats despite taking the lead in sets 3-1 (21-25, 30-28, 25-20, 25-22). BlueCats had better reception (66.7% to 62.4%) and attack (45.6% to 40%) than the opponents. Thus, they annulled disadvantage in blocking (5-9). Satoe Mitsuhashi topped BlueCats’ scorers with 26 points while the University of Texas at Austin graduate Jennifer Doris added 20. Risa Shinnabe had 23 points for the champions.

NEC Red Rockets embraced generous gift of Hisamitsu to isolate at the top of the standings with an away win over Okayama Seagulls 3-0. Sarina Koga highlighted winners with 15 points. Mizuki Yanagita contributed with 14 points, including three aces. Ayumi Kawashima was the only double-digit player in the Seagulls.
