UST Golden Tigress Sisi Rondina's family will be in attendance for Game 2 of the UAAP Season 81 Women's Volleyball Finals
As if being one more win away from the championship isn't motivation enough, University of Santo Tomas Women's Volleyball star and UAAP Season 81 Women's Volleyball Most Valuable Player Sisi Rondina will be getting an additional boost for the second game of their Finals series against Ateneo de Manila.
The graduating Rondina, who powered the Golden Tigresses to a straight-set win over the heavily-favored Lady Eagles, will be having her family in attendance for Game 2. She welcomed her family upon their arrival at NAIA Terminal 4.
Rondina's parents Arnold and Alona along with her sisters Christina, Karen and Criselda arrived in Manila from Cebu, Tuesday afternoon.

The trip to Manila was made possible by a group of UST alumni, who decided to shoulder the flight of the Rondina family, as well as the families of setter Alina Bicar from Samar and hitter Dimdim Pacres from Cebu.
“Thankful ako kasi tipong ang goal ko lang talaga is maglaro and syempre para ngumiti rin ‘yung UST community kasi more than enough ‘yung binigay nila sa akin,” said Rondina.
