Sisi Rondina is not yet done collecting trophies
Sisi Rondina has capped off a career year in the UAAP with yet another award.
University of Sto. Tomas’ heart and soul was hailed as the Season 81 Athlete of the Year for Collegiate Team Sports in the closing ceremony, Tuesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Rondina won the MVP awards for both beach and then indoor women’s volleyball.
She led the Golden Tigresses to the championship on the sand and then to a runner-up finish on the taraflex.
Now, she adds the Athlete of the Year trophy to the collection she has amassed in her last year in the UAAP. “Blessed. ‘Di ko rin in-expect na sa akin mapupunta,” she said after receiving the award.
She then continued, “Para rin ‘to sa teammates ko kasi ‘di ko rin ‘to makukuha kung ‘di sa kanila.”
The pride of UST is the first volleyball player since Alyssa Valdez to be recognized as UAAP Athlete of the Year.
