University of Santo Tomas’ energetic skipper Cherry Rondina said on Saturday that the Golden Tigresses will only focus on their own record as the Final Four race heats up in the UAAP Season 79 women’s volleyball tournament.

UST is currently in third place at 6-4 with only four games left in the elimination round.

“We’ll just stick to our goal [of trying to make it to the Final Four] and we won’t take advantage of the other teams’ losses,” said Rondina after UST fended off Adamson University 25-12, 25-18, 22-25, 25-19 at Filoil Flying V Centre.


Prior to the victory, the Tigresses were stuck in a four-way tie with National University, Far Eastern University, and University of the Philippines with 5-4 slates and they hope to separate themselves from the pack to avoid complications in the standings.

Rondina added they want to enter the Final Four not just for them as players, but also for their coaching staff and the whole Thomasian community.

“I really want to make it to the Final Four so that we can give something to the school and repay the sacrifices the coaches made for us,” said Rondina, who had 18 points in the win.
