Creamline Cool Smashers Jia Morado and Alyssa Valdez joined their former Ateneo teammate Maddie Madayag and the rest of the Lady Eagles, both past and present, in paying tribute to their longtime head coach Tai Bundit.
Morado, Valdez, and Madayag all took to Instagram to celebrate the enigmatic Thai coach, who rose to prominence for his winning ways and "Happy Heartstrong" mantra that captivated Philippine volleyball during his stay.
The tributes came after Bundit led Creamline to the PVL Season 2 Open Conference championship at the expense of his former squad, Ateneo-Motolite.
Bundit is set to return to his home country of Thailand to be with his family after five years of molding and mentoring volleybelles for Ateneo in the UAAP and Creamline in the PVL.
