Aside from the intense action, heart-stopping plays and school rivalry, UAAP women’s volleyball tournament has some of the prettiest athletes in the country.
And Season 78 proves to be no different. Below is a short list of those volleyball players who stun not only with their on-court game but with their beauty and charm.
Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles
First on the list is the darling of the crowd and back-to-back UAAP MVP Alyssa Valdez. Fans adore the Queen Eagle not only for her smashing spikes but for her charm that radiates from the court up to the rafters.
Sophomore middle blocker Maddie Madayag is slowly making her presence felt with her solid defense at the net and solid tisay looks.
De La Salle University Lady Spikers
La Salle stalwart Mika Reyes is a lion on the court. But her fans describe her as cute, an adjective not often used for a 5-foot-11 lady.
National University Lady Bulldogs
In her first two years, she was listed at 6-foot-4. Now, in her third year, Jaja Santiago stands at 6 feet 5½ inches. You'll need to wear heels if you plan on dating this woman.
Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws
Gyzelle Sy, FEU's 23-year-old libero, is one tough cookie but has a smile that can melt the most stone-hearted of men.
For someone who grew up in California, Jerrili Malabanan adapted so well in the noisy streets of Morayta, and became one of the most promising rookies of FEU last year.
University of Santo Tomas Lady Tigers
Sophomore EJ Laure recently trended on Twitter after she was appointed as the team’s new skipper, replacing veteran Pam Lastimosa who’ll be out for the season due to an ACL injury.
While some raised their eyebrows, Laure, 18, just shrugged off the bashing. That feisty aura makes her sexy.
University of the Philippines Lady Maroons
Princess Gaiser’s name suits her well. She really looks like a princess. The 20-year-old libero also models for a health drink.
Nicole Tiamzon was one of the sport's biggest headturners when she entered the league. Four years in, the sports science major still is.
Adamson University Lady Falcons
Jessica Galanza can wreck the defense anytime she wants to. And then she'll wreck your heart. (Well, hopefully not.)
University of the East Lady Warriors
Rookie Seth Marione Rodriguez will have to prove that she’s more than just a pretty face. The recruit out of Cavite's Del Pilar Academy is the newest talk of the town as she is projected to be the next poster girl of volleyball.
