Pleasing multi-titled coach Ramil De Jesus of De La Salle University is never easy.
So for a Lady Spiker, earning the praise and approval from the stoic mentor for a job well done is a badge of honor.
Graduating hitter Tin Tiamzon was happy she got hers during her impressive first game in her swan song.
The veteran poured 17 points last Saturday as DLSU defeated archrival Ateneo de Manila University, 25-17, 17-25, 25-17, 25-15, to open its campaign in the UAAP Season 82 women’s volleyball tournament on a high note.
However, the highlight of Tiamzon’s performance was when she received a high-five from the bedimpled coach.

“Ay! Kinilig ako dun. First time, yeah yun lang,” said Tiamzon. “Nakakapanggaan [ng pakiramdam] as a player na your coach acknowledges that.”
Tiamzon’s highlight reel drew traction on social media. Being naturally competitive, her former teammates and other DLSU volleyball program products posted their own ‘proud moment’ with De Jesus seemingly trying to upstage each other.
Desiree Cheng, who graduated last season, couldn't predict more accurately.
