edited May 17 in UAAP - Volleyball
Welcome to the official PinoyExchange Thread of the Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas (UST) Volleyball Teams!


The history of the Volleyball program of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) traces down to its roots as one of the four founding members of the UAAP. It has produced numerous championships in the Men's, Women's and Girls divisions, including several MVPs and awardees in both the UAAP and other club leagues. UST was seen at the forefront of the rise of the popularity of volleyball in the Philippines, winning championships after championships when the sport was started to be televised.

    Some UST volleyball alumni have become a regular fixture in game commentating, being potent parts of the sport, even outside the court. Tex Suter and Doc Ian Laurel are champion setters of the Spiking Tigers. Mozzy Ravena, one of the pioneer commentators of the sport, is a 3-time champion. Young bloods Denise Tan, former Best Setter, and Mela Tunay are proving themselves eloquent as media personalities as well.

    The Golden Volleyant Legion (GVL)
    The Golden Volleyant Legion is the newly-formed support group composed of fans of the UST Volleyball teams from different parts of the globe.

    Gold, one of the main colors of the UST athletic teams, encompasses their glorious tradition throughout the years and also symbolizes the support group’s unfathomable level of passion in terms of reinforcement.

    ‘Volleyant Legion’, on the other hand, was lifted from the last line of the UST Hymn “…ever your valiant legions imbued with unending grace.”, with a little wordplay to incorporate ‘Volleyball’ in it. It is an allusion to the Church’s army who are perpetually showered with grace… grace for every endeavour; grace for every victory and accomplishment; and the same grace for every downfall or defeat.
