University of Santo Tomas’ Rancel Varga and Jaron Requinton completed a 10-0 campaign, sweeping Far Eastern University’s Jude Garcia and Doy Barrica in the Men’s championship round, Sunday in the UAAP Beach Volleyball Tournament at Sands SM By The Bay. 

The Tiger Spikers won their second straight crown, dominating the Tamaraws with an easy 21-11, 21-11 win in Game One. They then closed things out with a 21-15, 21-19 victory.

“Consistent ang ipinakita namin ni Jaron hanggang dulo. Iniaalay namin ito sa UST, kay God, at sa family namin sa sumusuporta at sa mga coaches,” said Varga, who was named the season MVP.

“‘Yung inspirasyon po namin ‘yung hirap sa training at ‘yung pagpunta ng family ko po sa Manila, kaya nakuha ko yung tropeo at yung bonus kong natanggap, which is ‘yung MVP po,” he added.

Varga praised the Growling Tigers’ former champions Krung Arbasto and KR Guzman for keeping the faith.

“Para sa kanila din dito. Palagi po kaming gina-guide. Tinuturuan po kami kung ano ang tactics, kung ano ang technique sa paglalaro ng beach volleyball,” said Varga.

UST thus annexed a league-best fifth diadem.

National University’s James Natividad and James Buytrago outlasted Adamson University’s Leo Miranda and Jesus Valdez, 22-20, 15-21, 15-9, to claim third place.

The Rookie of the Year honors went to Buytrago.
