UAAP: Sisi Rondina s last beach volleyball ride

Gunning for a three-peat in the UAAP beach volleyball tournament, University of Santo Tomas Sand Tigresses Sisi Rondina and Blove Barbon opens their Season 81 in dominating fashion after crushing the University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, 21-12, 21-12. The queen of beach volleyball Rondina has partnered with rookie Barbon. The newbie from Bukidnon is Rondina's fourth partner in five years in the sand courts. "Kahit sino naman ang partner ko basta they will play with our school in mind, wala akong problema doon. As long as kaya niyang ipaglaban 'yung school namin," Rondina shared. This comes as no surprise as Rondina has been playing in the sand with different partners almost every year and regardless, she still wins the championship. This season is Rondina's last year to play for UST and she can't help but wax sentimental on her last ride. "For me lang naman, hindi siya pressure, nasa-sad lang ako kasi siyempre last year. Sana makuha namin 'to para maganda 'yung exit. Siyempre, hindi rin kami, ako papayag na aalis akong walang makuha. Tatrabahuhin pa rin namin. Magkakabuhusan na lang talaga," she shared. No worries for Rondina because when rookie Barbon spoke to reporters after their match, she giddily expressed her willingness to help her Ate Sisi. "Kinabahan po kasi first time ko po, rookie po ako. Wala pa po masyadong experience tulad ni Ate Sisi. Tiwala lang po sa sarili na kaya namin, na kaya ko tulungan si Ate Sisi, gawin ko lang yung part ko," said Barbon. But behind that willingness is also an honest nervousness. "Sobrang saya na sobrang pressured kasi yun nga last year na ni Ate, kailangan namin [manalo para] mas maganda yung pag exit niya," said the young player. Who can't blame her? Barbon is partners with arguably the best beach volleyball player to ever grace the Philippines sands......»»

Oppositionist Sen. Bam Aquino dropped out of the top 12 senatorial bets -- the so-called Magic 12 -- for the May 2019 senatorial elections, a Pulse Asia survey showed on Saturday. The recent nationwide pre-election survey showed that the senator placed at the 20th spot. His cousin, Kris Aquino, followed him next.
