La Salle heaps praise on UST's Sisi Rondina — ‘Ibang klase’

MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University head coach Ramil de Jesus paid a major compliment to University of Santo Tomas (UST) standout Sisi Rondina on Saturday, after the Lady Spikers hacked out a 5-set win over the Tigresses to start UAAP Season 80.

After the Tigresses lost the opening set, 25-20, Rondina almost single-handedly dragged her team back into contention, with a series of points in the second frame that energized the UST squad.

"Every year naman kasi, lumalakas 'yung bata," said de Jesus of Rondina. "Nasa character naman ng isang player 'yun, kung ano ang gusto niyang mangyari sa sarili niya."
