Ara Galang hailed as MVP

Highlighting her resurgent year, F2 Logistics Cargo Movers’ winger Ara Galang was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Invitational Cup.

The UAAP Season 75 Women’s Volleyball Most Valuable Player was electric in the Finals, scoring 18 points with nine excellent receptions in Game One before tallying 15 markers and 17 excellent receptions in the title-clinching Game Two.

Galang played her best tournament in the club ranks and best overall tournament since UAAP Season 77, when she suffered a gruesome knee injury.

Her fellow Cargo Movers Majoy Baron and Dawn Macandili were hailed 2nd Best Middle Blocker and Best Libero respectively, while Kim Fajardo was named Best Setter.

Petron’s Sisi Rondina and Mika Reyes claimed the 2nd Best Open Hitter and 1st Best Middle Blocker and Best Setter plums, respectively. Blaze Spiker Aiza Maizo-Pontillas grabbed the Best Opposite Hitter trophy.

Cignal HD’s Rachel Daquis was the 1st Best Open Hitter, while Generika-Ayala’s Patty Orendain received the Best Scorer award.
