UAAP 85 WBVB: Barbon-Eslapor give UST fifth straight title


University of Santo Tomas’ Babylove Barbon and Gen Eslapor completed another dominant campaign in the UAAP, capping their Season 85 run with a 21-15, 21-16 beatdown of National University’s Honey Grace Cordero and Kly Orillaneda at Sands SM By The Bay on Tuesday.

The league’s most successful program in the sport, UST secured its eighth women’s crown.

Barbon, who captured her second straight MVP, was very happy to carry on the Tigresses’ winning legacy, having won 37 consecutive matches dating back to 2016.UAAP-WBVB-GOLD-UST-GENESA-ESLAPOR-BABY-LOVE-BARBON-2 UAAP 85 WBVB: Barbon-Eslapor give UST fifth straight title Beach Volleyball DLSU News NU UAAP UP UST  - philippine sports news

“Kasi yung goal namin is makuha yung championship and iyon po ang nagawa namin ngayon. Pinagtrabahuan namin ng ilang taon at ito ang bunga ng paghihirap namin,” said Barbon.

The women’s competition was not played in Season 84, and Barbon felt that it was worth the wait for UST to continue the dynasty that Sisi Rondina started.UAAP-WBVB-UST UAAP 85 WBVB: Barbon-Eslapor give UST fifth straight title Beach Volleyball DLSU News NU UAAP UP UST  - philippine sports news

“Sobrang saya po kahit nag-pandemic. Nagawan pa rin namin ng paraan na makapag-training kami and nagawan ng paraan na makuha po yung goal namin, which is yung championship,” said Barbon.

UST went undefeated in matches.

University of the Philippines returned to the women’s podium, as Euri Eslapor, Gen’s younger sister, and Alyssa Bertolano rebounded from a second set loss to repulse La Salle’s Justine Jazareno and Jolina Dela Cruz, 21-18, 12-21, 15-6.

Cordero, a Silay City native, took the Rookie of the Year honors.
