“It feels unbelievable. It’s just so good to exit the courtside representing a champion team.”
DLSU courtside reporter Jeanine Tsoi could only heave a sigh of relief and contentment after culminating her UAAP reporting career last Saturday. The DLSU Lady Spikers trouncing the Ateneo Lady Eagles at the women’s volleyball finals for her first championship to report on, is precisely why she has a smile on despite leaving her cherished stint of two years.
“Mas masarap mag-exit kasi syempre victorious,” says the part-time model, who now returns to being a fulltime Engineering student.
“Being a courtside reporter was such a privilege because I get to report for such a talented team. It’s different because you’re representing your Alma Mater also, so nakaka-proud being a Lasallian.”
Tsoi admits she only got to be close with the volleyball team this season compared to last year. It helped knowing them more whenever she sees them training at Enrique Razon and when they’re readying for a game. The talent is clearly in them, she says, but more so is the lack of attitude—something people would normally expect from sports stars, but not this powerhouse team.
“They’re very humble, super down-to-earth, alam mo yun. They have so much potential but they don’t even know it. They’re so level-headed, their feet are on the ground, and I think the best part about the Lady Spikers is that they’re so driven, motivated, hardworking yet super grounded.”
