That become what rang around the Mall of Asia Arena just moments after Ateneo de Manila University reclaimed the crown in UAAP Women’s Volleyball weeks in the past.
Mind you, Sisi – Cherry Ann Rondina, as her full call is going – isn’t always a Lady Eagle.
In fact, it became her who fronted University of Sto. Tomas’ resistance to Ateneo.
Still, Rondina’s was the call that the jam-packed crowd chanted first – and certainly, after numerous others have been additionally yelled, the loudest.
“Sobrang saya ko dun sa nangyari. That time, ang sarap sa feeling na ang dami mo palang taong napapasaya through your passion na volleyball,” she narrated after making records as first Volleyball Player of the Year inside the 2019 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Awards closing Monday. “Kaming lahat, hindi lang ako, satisfied kaming naibalik namin yung UST community. Nagsama-sama ulit sila, nagtiwala ulit sa amin.”
That outpouring of help for one particular player, though, surely felt like déjà vu – most effective, the first example was 5 months ago in a one of a kind recreation.
In December of remaining year, the Blue Eagles had simply wrapped up a dominant season for lower back-to-again championships in UAAP Men’s Basketball.
And but, when the dirt settled, the Araneta Coliseum rocked with impassioned cries of “De-si-derio! De-si-derio! De-si-derio!”
Paul Desiderio, heart and soul of the University of the Philippines team that had to settle for a runner-up end, remained the maximum beloved player at the court.
“Ako, kung naaalala ko yun, sobrang saya ko pa rin kasi kitang-kita talagang yung network, nagkaisa para dun, para sa akin, para sa amin,” he recalled.
Just like Rondina, Desiderio become at the losing end of the blue and white champions.
But much like Rondina as properly, Desiderio had already won the hearts of almost anybody lengthy earlier than the Finals even started out.
KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS
Paul Desiderio isn’t the quickest, not the most powerful, not the tallest, no longer the most athletic, not the high-quality shooter, not the quality ball-handler, and no longer the excellent playmaker on his own group.
Still, he’s and will always be, the number one protagonist in UP’s Cinderella run in Season eighty one which noticed them quit a 21-year Final Four drought and then cease a 32-year Finals absence.
The very identical may be stated about Rondina – an open hitter who stands at just 5-foot-6, however although defies gravity along with her hops and the way she contorts her frame from doing down the road spikes to crosscourt assaults and vice versa.
Following her lead, the Golden Tigresses barged returned into the land of the elite in Season eighty one where they made their first championship round in eight years.
“Si Desiderio kasi, pareho kami ng pinaglaban. Nilaban namin yung mga team namin and we adore our recreation,” she stated, speaking about the hanging similarities in what they had finished.
No doubt, the ones two were not talented with the best of bodily gear, but greater than made up for it by means of having the greatest of hearts.
And that did nothing however inspire their teammates and, more importantly, re-energized their sleeping giants of fanbases.
“Isa lang naman talaga gusto ko e – ang makita yung UST network na nakangiti lahat,” Rondina said, regarding the Espana-primarily based school which currently houses over 40,000 students and has educated for 408 years. “Yun yung deserve nila e – na nakangiti at the quit.”
At the other stop of Quezon Avenue lies UP Diliman which is domestic to greater than 20,000 students at present and has educated for one hundred ten years.
Now, simply imagine those sleeping giants of fanbases waking up and ultimately getting as much as cheer for his or her groups.
Their groups who were, without a doubt, the underdogs in both their Finals collection.
And hiya, who does not love rooting for the underdogs?
