Local volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez etched her name in Shakey’s V-League history after winning her third Shakey’s V-League Conference MVP award.
Winning her first two MVP awards with her alma mater Ateneo De Manila University and PLDT, Valdez claimed another MVP trophy after carrying the Bureau of Customs Transformers to the Reinforced Conference Finals.
This comes during a season when she set the record for most points by a local (39, against Laoag). She also won the First Best Spiker award.
Valdez separated herself from legends and two-time SVL MVP awardees Mary Jean Balse, Sue Roces, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, and Dindin Santiago-Manabat.
“I’m thankful and I’m really very blessed to win these awards. I would not have won awards if not for the support of my teammates and coaches naman so it goes back to them talaga for helping me get here,” said the two-time UAAP champion.
Pocari Sweat’s American import Bre Mackie nabbed the Best Foreign Guest player award, the first time the league handed out awards for imports.
UST’s Ria Meneses and Ej Laure won the First Best Middle Blocker and Second Best Outside Hitter award.
Bali Pure’s Denden Lazaro was deemed the Best Libero.
Pocari Sweat’s Michele Gumabao and Iris Tolenada took home the Best Opposite Spiker and Best Setter Awards, respectively.
BOC’s Lilet Mabbayad was named the Second Best Middle Blocker.
