Rondina: Height not always might


Sisi Rondina continues to prove why she emerged as the top Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino player in the previous season.

The reigning PVL Most Valuable Player delivered 24 points and 22 excellent receptions as the Flying Titans overcame the gritty Petro Gazz Angels in a thrilling five-setter, 24-26, 25-22, 25-18, 24-26, 15-13, last Tuesday at the Philsports Arena.

Rondina sustained her fine form, coming up with 23 points and 13 excellent receptions in beating Chery Tiggo, 25-9, 25-23, 20-25, 25-17, last Saturday for Choco Mucho’s third straight victory in as many outings for the solo lead.

With her stellar showing, Rondina was named the PVL Press Corps Player of the Week for the period of 27 February to 2 March .

The former UST star edged Creamline’s Tots Carlos — who posted a 31-point career game on Thursday against Akari — in a tight deliberation for the weekly honor given by sportswriters covering the flourishing professional league.

More than her consistent scoring prowess and vastly improved floor defense, the 5-foot-6 outside hitter hopes to inspire all players who are not blessed with height.

“Of course, I want to inspire short players like me. I want them to know that lack of height is not a hindrance to excel in a competitive league like this,” Rondina said.

As Choco Mucho seeks to replicate, if not surpass its first PVL finals appearance last December, Rondina is eager to continue her masterful performance and remain passionate about reaching greater heights in this conference.

“For as long as you do your best, people will notice your heart, passion and willingness to win in actual games.”
