The most adorable #AnimOBF photos of Alyssa Valdez and Mika Reyes we’ve seen
Look at all these proof that you can definitely be friends in the real world despite being on-court rivals
The red-hot Ateneo-La Salle rivalry especially in sports has been there for ages, and only time can tell when a truce between the top UAAP schools will come about. But it already seems to be the case for recent UAAP women’s volleyball graduates Alyssa Valdez and Mika Reyes, who played for the blue and green teams, respectively. The two both left the collegiate league last year, with two and three titles trophies respectively amassed in their playing years. They were big sports rivals as much as they were sports superstars back in the day, a competition that even got many fans choosing sides, writing fanfiction, and even arguing about their idols online.
Last Monday, we saw the two volleybelles finally reuniting off the court for an endorsement deal. It was a rare opportunity since apart from the “rivalry,” the two were each busy. Valdez was on a break from her stint with a Thailand volleyball league while Reyes is raring to compete at the PSL anew with new team Petron Tri-Activ Spikers.
Thankfully, we got some personalities from both camps and fans documenting the entire episode online! We gather here some of the best and once-in-a-blue-moon #AnimOBF photos there are! Don't you love these photos, too?
