UAAP Season 81 Women's Volleyball Most Valuable Player winner Sisi Rondina thanked the University of Sto. Tomas community when she accepted the highest individual recognition on Wednesday’s awarding rites.
“Sa eighth man namin sa UST community para sa inyo pong lahat ng ito. Lalong lalo na po sa pamilya ko,” said the graduating hitter in her acceptance speech before Game 2 of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball Finals series against Ateneo de Manila University at the MOA Arena.
Rondina, who won four beach volleyball titles and four MVPs, also accepted the Second Best Open Spiker award.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Panginoon na isa ako sa nabigyan ng ganitong talento. Sa lahat ng bumubuo ng UAAP maraming maraming salamat po,” said Rondina.
The Queen Tigress put into words her gratitude to the UST community, which showed their love to Rondina by shouldering the airfare from Cebu and accommodation expenses of her family to watch her play.
“UST community ito lang ang masasabi ko the best kayo!” “Hindi ito para sa akin. Para sa atin lahat ‘to!” she said.
UST guns for the title-clincher for their 15th title overall and first since Season 72.
