WATCH! The Best Plays from Ms. and Mr. Volleyball 2017
Check out the best plays from Mr. Volleyball Marck Espejo and Ms. Volleyball Dawn Macandili!
Ateneo de Manila University's four-time UAAP MVP Marck Espejo and De La Salle University's Dawn Macadili were named Mr. Volleyball and Ms. Volleyball respectively by the Philippine Sportswriters Association for 2017.
The UAAP's best represented their schools and the Philippines in the past year, and in that span, they were able to embody world-class talent on both ends of the volleyball court, whether it's on offense, or defense to prove that Filipinos can indeed fly and dig with the best of them.
Espejo, the Blue Eagles' go-to hitter is also one of the strongest and craftiest hitters in the Philippines. Able to score at will, he has helped tow Ateneo to three straight championships in the men's division of the UAAP.

Meanwhile Macandili, as the Lady Spikers' defensive specialist, has brought attention to the less glamorous end of the floor with her 'buwis-buhay' saves and overall aggressive play.
The diminutive libero has given confidence to DLSU's attackers to jumps hammer away, en route to back-to-back champsionships, knowing that she's right there to clean it up.
