In a competitive field overflowing with star potential, Adamson University’s Trisha Genesis shone the brightest as she hoisted the Most Valuable Player plum in the 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference, Saturday afternoon.
Genesis flaunted her lethal offensive arsenal, proving herself a cut above the rest throughout the elimination round. More so, she spearheaded the Lady Falcons’ conquest of the title moments before she was recognized as the cream of the crop.
The Adamson sophomore — who was also hailed the Best Open Spiker — wound up as the league’s top scorer with 73 points built on 58 attacks, 13 service aces and two blocks. She tallied a 39.46 spiking success and normed 0.81 service aces, finishing as the second-best in both spiking and service departments.
Genesis’ teammate Louie Romero took home the Finals Most Valuable Player plum. The rookie setter dished out 33 excellent sets in Game One, before following it up with 24 excellent tosses in the gold-clinching Game Two victory.
Another Adamson rookie, Lorene Toring, also picked up a recognition. She captured the Best Middle Blocker award alongside University of Sto. Tomas freshman Imee Hernandez.
Ateneo’s Faith Nisperos was hailed as the other Best Outside Spiker. She posted a 41.46 percent efficiency rate to lead the spiking department. Her teammate Jaja Maraguinot, meanwhile, received the Best Setter of the Conference as she normed 6.39 excellent sets per frame, ending up second behind Romero — who had 6.75 excellent sets in the elimination round.
Completing the cast of awardees are College of St. Benilde’s Klarisa Abriam and Arianne Daguil, who pocketed the Best Opposite Hitter and Best Libero awards, respectively.
