    The Bomb! Premature but a possible MVP of this season. A threat from offense to defense. Kahit sa matataas na blocker nakakalusot!
  • Korek. Isa siya sa inabangan ko sa game vs ALE.

    I am a fan. Sana tuloy tuloy ang pag improve niya at huwag sana siya ma injure.

    'Fighter' Cherry Rondina loses to Ateneo, but earns praise from Alyssa Valdez

    CHERRY Rondina’s University of Santo Tomas team may have lost to two-time defending champion Ateneo, but she nonetheless earned the respect of Ms. Volleyball herself, Alyssa Valdez.

    The sophomore open spiker, who always serves as fuel to the Tigresses with her boundless energy and unshakeable confidence, was praised by the two-time UAAP MVP following the team’s 22-25, 20-25, 25-21, 15-25 loss to the Lady Eagles on Sunday at The Arena.

    Rondina, 19, led her team with 21 markers, just two points shy of Valdez’s output. She erupted for a career-high 30 points in the school’s first match of the season - a 22-25, 21-25, 25-20, 30-28, 14-16, setback to Adamson.

    “Fighter talaga eh,” said Valdez of Rondina, who bagged the UAAP beach volleyball title in her rookie year in tandem with Rica Rivera.

    “Sa beach volleyball pa lang kapag nakakalaban mo ‘yun she means business,” added the 22-year oldValdez, named Ms. Volleyball by the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) for the third consecutive year. “Kapag nasa loob siya ng court wala siyang ibang iisipin. She has that killer instinct.”

    Valdez, who played for UST in high school, only have good words for the 5-foot-6 pride of Cebu.

    “Oh my God, super layo ang mararating (niya), and even if she doesn’t have that height that most of the players have, hindi naman ata kailangan ni Rondina ng height,” she said.

    The Ateneo star believes Rondina’s all-around game not only makes up for her lack of height, but also makes her the ideal player any coach would love to have in a team.

    “Parang it takes a lot of effort to get a point, to jump, I mean she helps the team talaga not only sa offense, kahit maliit may blocking, may depensa, may first ball,” noted Valdez.

    “Ano pa ang hahanapin mo sa isang player ‘di ba? Sobrang bait pa ng bata, sobrang hard working, ‘yun talaga ang hinahanap ng coaches,” she added.

    NT calibre na ba si Cherry or may kulang pa? What do you guys think?

    May ka-height siya sa Thai NT, yong idol ni Ella, 5'6 yata height nun.

    Of all the VB players gusto ko yong "promdi spunk" niya.

    Rondina earns Valdez's admiration in valiant stand for UST
    By Mark Escarlote on Feb 07, 2016 06:32 PM


    Cherry Rondina was all over the place once again for the University of Sto. Tomas.

    In scoring, attacks, blocks, service aces and even on the defensive end diving for the ball.

    Her efforts though were put into naught as the Tigresses dropped their second straight game, this time against the powerhouse back-to-back champion Ateneo de Manila.

    Rondina fell short of carrying the Espana-based squad past the Lady Eagles, 22-25, 20-25, 25-21, 15-25, Sunday to remain winless in the 78th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament. But her demeanor in battle earned the admiration of Queen Eagle and reigning two-time Most Valuable Player Alyssa Valdez.

    “Fighter talaga e,” said Valdez of the sophomore player from Cebu with a peculiar nickname “Sisi”.

    Rondina, who told reporters that her nickname was derived from the Bisayan word for oyster which she loves to eat, finished with 21 points coming from 15 kills, three kill blocks she got from Valdez, Bea De Leon and Maddie Madayag, and three service winners with four digs.

    Her total output was nine points short of her career-high in a five-set loss over Adamson last Wednesday in UST’s season opener.

    The graduating Valdez said that she was not surprised with Rondina’s performance.

    “Sa beach volleyball pa lang kapag nakakalaban mo ‘yun (palaban talaga),” added Valdez of the Season 77 UAAP beach volleyball champion.

    “She means business kapag nasa loob siya ng court wala siyang ibang iisipin. And that killer’s instinct that she has, Oh my God! Super layo talaga ng mararating.”

    Valdez even joked that the diminutive hitter – standing 5-foot-6 – doesn’t need the ceiling to dominate the game.

    “Even if she doesn’t have that height that like everyone (wanted) di ba? Most of the players naman ngayon ‘yung height talaga is an advantage, ‘di naman ‘yata kailangan ni Rondina ng height?”

    Valdez also praised Rondina’s versatility and all-around game.

    “Pero siyempre it takes a lot of effort from her to get the point, the jump and I mean she helps the team talaga not only in offense, na kahit maliit, may blocking, may depensa, may first ball. Ano pang hahanapin mo sa isang player?” she said.

    “Sobrang bait pa ng bata, sobrang hard working and ‘yan ang hinahanap ng mga coaches eh. (‘Yung) lalaban at lalaban lang.”

    But even with the admiration of arguably the most popular local volleyball player, Rondina is far from satisfied with her game.

    “Hindi po talaga ako satisfied kasi gusto ko pong makuha ‘yung resulta ng kung ano ang nilalaro namin,” said Rondina.

    All Rondina wants is to save the Tigresses from the cellar.
