La Salle's Baron earns UAAP Player of the Week nod

MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University team captain Majoy Baron earned the first-ever UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week award in UAAP women's volleyball, after leading the Lady Spikers to a tough win in their first game of Season 80.

The reigning UAAP MVP dominated at the net in La Salle's 25-20, 17-25, 25-22, 15-25, 15-8 triumph over the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Golden Tigresses, piling up 19 points coming from 12 attacks, five blocks, and two aces.

Baron edged out National University's Jaja Santiago, University of the Philippines' Diana Carlos, and Far Eastern University's Toni Rose Basas, all of whom also led their teams to wins over the weekend.

With their starting opposite hitter Kianna Dy hampered by a hyperextended left knee, the Lady Spikers needed every bit of Baron's steady play and leadersip to outlast the fiery Tigresses.

"Marami kaming ginawang adjustments before the game kasi nga si Kianna may iniinda pang injury. So, malaking bagay na very consistent 'yung nilaro ni Majoy," said La Salle head coach Ramil De Jesus.
