For leading the University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses to a huge turnaround, two of their stalwarts are set to be rewarded.

According to numerous sources, UST captain Sisi Rondina earned the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball MVP award.

The 5-foot-6 spiker beat teammate Eya Laure and Ateneo de Manila University’s Kat Tolentino.

Rondina, a four-time MVP and champion on the UAAP sandcourt, was far and away the season’s MVP, computed by taking into consideration a players stats, her team’s record, and the numbers of sets her team played.

UST ended up as the second seed after the elimination round with a 10-4 record while winning 35 out of the 52 sets it figured in.

Laure, on the other hand, will be named the season’s top rookie. She beat De La Salle University’s Jolina Dela Cruz, and National University’s trio of Princess Robles, Ivy Lacsina, and Jennifer Nierva.

A different source also said there was a good possibility that the UAAP will not be giving out awards per position and will instead give recognition per skill, as they have in past seasons.

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.
