UAAP women’s volleyBALL games are a battlefield not just for the ladies’ supremacy in slapping BALLS aroundbut also for their ability to draw eyeBALLS onto them. The likes of Denise Tan (UST), Jed Montero (UP) and Charo Soriano (Ateneo) used to roam around the throne then owned by Rachel Daquis (FEU) and they provided us the necessary excuse not to wander elsewhere. What’s not to love about pretty ladies who kick ass too, right?
Last season queen Rachel used up her last year of illegibility and thus UAAP lost its most recognizable female athlete. That was huge considering that she was the heart and soul and liver of the league’s distaff side. This just means that the crown is pretty much up for grabs, and someone has to have the BALLS to rank them up in a list. Let’s get the BALL rolling!
10.) JOANNE SIY, De La Salle
Honestly, I don’t know if she’s just a fad or she’s for real. I like watching this rookie Archer on the court and if I do continue looking at her, I don’t even know what hit me! Joanne is tall and looks shy, kaya bagay ata kami! Nyehe! Kidding aside, my best guess would be her hair. With that do on, she looks like she just came from a catwalk and it amplifies her cuteness.
I’d like her to bring home that Rookie of the Year trophy or maybe the Best Blocker award because her defense is vital for their success right now.
9.) MELISSA GOHING, De La Salle
If there’s beauty and brains in pageants, there’s cutie and skills in sports. She was last season’s ROY and she continues to prove her significance as libero of a superior system. I’ve almost always wanted Ateneo to win but I got four Lady Archers in this Top 10. I’ve never seen a UAAP team this close as a group: they share the same dormitory, bond together very often, share secrets, wear similar hair styles and beat the hell out of everybody in the way.
Anyways. Every time Melissa dives just to keep the ball alive (which happens often by the way), I genuinely worry over her like I don’t want her to be hurt or something. She’s so cute I wanna bring her home and cuddle up with her all day.
8.) MARICAR NEPOMUCENO, NU
I believe NU is not really the worst team on the planet, they have talented players as well, but they just can’t seem to pull off an upset over anyone. Maybe they lack fire, or a single dominant force like an Angela Benting (Adamson) or a Paneng Mercado (DLSU).
They’re like a small market team in the NBA, not too many fans root for them, because there’s nothing to cheer for. Except maybe for Maricar, who’s tall and such a pretty sight in the middle. If only her team can get out of the cellar, she’ll be as popular as Jed Montero (UP) and will plague your dreams forever.
7.) BEA PASCUAL, Ateneo
In my original list, I had Kara Acevedo in the upper half, but then she looks too different in her photos other than when I watch her on court. And she didn’t bother to reply to my Facebook message (if it was indeed her account). Still, I have three Ateneans, and it must be that new uniform!
Naturally, I’d say she’s BEAtiful, but she really is beautiful. She looks flat chested on court though, but besides that all other factors are favorable. She’s just one classy lady that you won’t think of banging her on the table. Might fire back for the many ordinary guys though, because she looks high maintenance. I doubt she eats isaw.
6.) LEUSEHT DAWIS, UE
Among everyone in this list, I giggle like a girl the most when she scores a point. She’s where ‘maganda’ and ‘cute’ meet, much like Cristine Reyes– and man, that dimple is a killer! Give her your pambahay clothes and she’ll still be a stunner. Give her that Ateneo one piece and she’ll give you a heart attack!
Leuseht is the Lady Warriors’ best answer to Rachel Daquis, though she isn’t exactly a star player. Sayang, UE supporters can compete with FEU fans pa naman sana, as they showed in men’s basketaball. She would have been bigger, but she’s no Suzanne Roces and neither is UE going anywhere right now.
