‘Sana mabigyan nila ako ng magandang exit’ – Rondina on UST wards

With only one game left in the eliminations, graduating UST captain Sisi Rondina has only one wish to her teammates – that she be given a memorable exit.

The explosive outside hitter, however, said that making it in the final four this season is already a blessing in itself. Throughout her UAAP career, Rondina only had two final four finishes under her belt.

“Sa mga bata, ako na bahala sa kanilang sabihin sa kanila parang ‘are you with me?’ na kailangan sama-sama tayo. Walang iwanan. ‘Yun nga sabi ko sa kanila na sana mabigyan nila ako ng magandang exit,” Rondina said.


“Ngayon okay na ako, sobrang overwhelmed na ako pero sinasabi ko naman sa kanila na walang imposible ‘pag mangarap tayo nang todo-todo pero trabahuhin lang,” she added.

The Cebuana, who tallied yet again a triple-double performance in their victory over Far Eastern University, quipped that the season is far from over and she will always remind the young gunners of her team about their goal.

Rondina finished with 21 points built from 17 attacks. three aces, and a block. She also had 15 and 12 excellent digs and receptions.

“Sa opinyon ko ha. Kailangan kong gawin na kailangan pareho kami ng mindset. Sabi ko na nangangarap nga ako na gusto kong umabot sa championship. Lagi kong ireremind sa kanila iyon,” she said.

But her main aspiration is to play in the finals and eventually win the crown for her alma mater, who last had a taste of the championship in Season 72.

“Gagawin ko ‘yung mga kailangang gawin na maipakita lang na gusto kong maglaro para sa UST, gusto kong mapay-off lahat ng paghihirap namin. Kailangan kong lagyan ng actions ‘yan,” Rondina shared.

For Rondina, hard work pays so they will work hard to achieve their ultimate goal for this season.

Before battling in the final four, the Golden Tigresses will face National University Lady Bulldogs for their last elimination games on April 27.
