Justine Dorog and Marian Buitre join Foton in the pro ranks

Two of the University of the Philippines women’s volleyball team players are taking their talents to the Foton Tornadoes in the Philippine Superliga.

Do-it-all player Dorog herself confirmed this development through a Twitter post while Buitre posted an Instagram story where she was having a good time with some Lady Tornadoes.

The two will join a relatively jam-packed team composed of veteran players. They will be teammates with sisters Jaja and Dindin Santiago, Maika Ortiz, Gyzelle Sy, and Mina Aganon.

Dorog and Buitre have been instrumental in UP’s successful 2018 stint where they won both the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference and Philippine Superliga Collegiate Grand Slam plums.

The two, however, had a dismal finish the UAAP Season 81 where they bolted out of the final four after having a 6-8 win-loss card for the fifth place.

Dorog finished the UAAP season with 101 total points while Buitre ender her collegiate career with 74 points.
