In Samonte’s first year, she won the UAAP Season 79 Rookie of the Year honors.
A loyal soldier, Samonte also played for Ateneo in the UAAP beach volleyball competition for two seasons.
Then in her third year, she helped the Lady Eagles win the UAAP Season 81 crown.
Samonte would have been the co-captain of the Lady Eagles in Season 82 along with Dani Ravena. However, the season was cut short due to the ongoing pandemic.
Samonte left Ateneo after obtaining her degree.
Perlas finished the 2021 Open Conference with a 1-8 record.
