De La Salle University’s 5-foot libero has been a key cog in the Lady Spikers’ back-to-back championships.
With her “buwis-buhay” saves that are both effective, and highly entertaining to watch, it’s no surprise that she landed as spot with the Philippine team who competed in the AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship and in the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games last 2017.
That’s when the Macandili, who earned the nickname “Ms. Everywhere” was also dubbed as a “world-class talent” after all her efforts against Asian powerhouse teams like Vietnam. Kazakhstan, South Korea, and Thailand.
More than the monicker, she was also rewarded with the historic 2nd Best Libero award in the prestigious Asian tournament that proved Filipinos could indeed stand tall against taller competition.
Less than a month before the UAAP season 80 volleyball tournament tips off on February 3, let’s all revisit the best, most jaw-dropping saves by Dawn Macandili of the three-peat seeking Lady Spikers!
