Kyla Atienza caps first PWNVT stint with ASEAN GP Best Libero honor

Kyla Atienza’s first-ever stint with the Philippine Women’s National Volleyball Team was indeed a memorable one.

The 5-foot-6 defensive specialist out of Far Eastern University was hailed as the Best Libero in the 2022 ASEAN Grand Prix held in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand on Sunday.

Atienza joined elite Southeast Asian players in the all-tournament team.

The other individual awardees were Best Outside Hitters Tran Thi Thanh Thuy (Vietnam) and Ajcharaporn Kongyot (Thailand), Best Middle Blockers Thi Kieu Trinh Hoang (Vietnam) and Tichakorn Boonlert (Thailand), Best Setter Pornpun Guedpard (Thailand) Best Opposite Spiker Hangesri Pertiwi Megawati (Indonesia) and Most Valuable Player Pimpichaya Kokram (Thailand).

Back in 2019, Dawn Macandili was also named as the Best Libero in the second leg of the tournament.

Atienza, Creamline’s defensive ace, made her PWNVT debut during this stretch that also included the AVC Cup for Women.

She is also a former PVL Best Libero, winning the award during the 2019 Open Conference.
