Bea De Leon is a picture of unrelenting confidence.

In her five-year stay with the Ateneo Lady Eagles, the 5-foot-11 middle blocker displays the same composure in front of a crowd of 20,000 or an almost empty arena.

Safe to say, she rarely gets nervous.

“I was telling everyone that I only get nervous for two things – my first game and Ateneo-La Salle – so put that together, and you just like shrug,” the 22-year-old Atenean quipped..

Moreover, the Ateneo co-captain has always been candid.

She had mostly played well against La Salle, but taking on their archrivals right on the first day of the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball Tournament gave her a totally new feeling.

De Leon managed eight points in Ateneo’s four-set loss to La Salle but admitted that her team still had a long way to go to contend in her final UAAP season.Tiebreaker Times Perfect storm for Bea De Leon in first match of last season with Ateneo Lady Eagles ADMU News UAAP Volleyball  UAAP Season 81 Women's Volleyball UAAP Season 81 Bea De Leon Ateneo Women's Volleyball

“We played very poorly, I think that’s the gist. There were a lot of things going on in everyone’s mind – nerves, excited – it will be like that sometimes,” lamented De Leon.

“Iyon nga, there were a lot of things going on in everyone’s head including me siguro. It really boiled down to us, it was all us.”

The Lady Eagles get a shot at their first win against University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday.

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
