Filipino volleyball players are used to going all-out against each other on the court during intense matches, but off it, they're just one big family of athletes.

That's why volleybelles from different schools, teams, and backgrounds are one in cheering for opposite hitter-turned-beauty queen Michele Gumabao.

The former De La Salle Lady Spiker's transformation from a fierce spiker into a full-fledged Bb. Pilipinas contender has drawn adulation from her fans, and praise, as well as support from her fellow volleybelles.

Past and present players alike all chipped in to continue promoting Gumabao's Bb. Pilipinas campaign for the crown. 

From fierce Ateneo rivals like Gretchen Ho, Charo Soriano, Dennise Lazaro, Kara Acevedo, Jules Samonte and Jem Ferrer, to fellow La Sallians, Mika Reyes, Melissa Gohing (who should win some sort of award for her non-stop support on social media).

Maybe supporting a fellow volleybelle is the next best thing for these ladies as Gumabao continues to break down stereotypes cast upon athletes.

She has become a crowd favorite with her appeal, her sports-oriented cause, and her glowing demeanor as Binibini #19.
