Ateneo-DLSU S78 Finals still making noise four years after
The thrilling UAAP Season 78 women’s volleyball Finals between archrivals Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University remains to be one of the most memorable championship series in the storied rivalry.

It has been four years since the thrilling UAAP Season 78 women’s volleyball Finals series between archrivals Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University.

Still, that collision between two collegiate volleyball titans remains to be one of the most remembered series in the rivalry.

It was a championship series that went the full distance. It featured amazing heroics from then Queen Lady Eagle Alyssa Valdez and from the Lady Spikers' trio of Ara Galang, Mika Reyes and Cyd Demecillo as well as the emergence of Kim Kianna Dy for DLSU.

ABS-CBN S+A brought the memorable matches back on television via S+A Encore: UAAP Classics, showing Game 2 and 3 of the Finals on Monday.

As expected, fans of DLSU and Valdez went to Twitter to express their reactions on the series.  

Valdez, who scored 31 points in her final game for the blue and white, and Reyes became trending topics on Twitter.

Reyes was active on Twitter throughout the replay:

And even made fun of herself.  

Valdez and Galang made a reaction on their farewell season as players for their respective schools.
