UST’s Rondina teams up with new partner in BVR Manila Open
Cherry Rondina is set to represent University of Santo Tomas once more in the Beach Volleyball Republic, but this time, she will have a new partner in the sand courts.
UST’s explosive Golden Tigress will team up with Babylove Barbon in the Manila Open that will start on Friday at Sands SM By the Bay.
Rondina won a BVR leg in 2017 with former partner Jinggay Bangad in Currimao, Ilocos Norte while Barbon was named as the BVR Queen of the Sands in July.
Also in the three-day tournament is the partnership of Dzi Gervacio and Bea Tan for Perlas.
This will also be a reunion of sorts for Gervacio and Rondina who paired up with each other during the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour 1-Star Manila Open in May where the two reached the quarterfinals.
Apart from Rondina and Barbon, UST will also have a second team in Gen Eslapor and MJ Ebro.
Far Eastern University will also have two teams in Ivana Agudo and Marianne Calinawan as FEU1 and FEU2’s Sheena Gallentes and Jamaica Pascua.
Antonette Landicho and Klymince Orillenada will represent National University, while Princess Deana Estanislao and Janine Padue will banner University of Perpetual Help.
University of the Philippines will have Jessma Ramos and Justine Dorog as the first team and the pair of Abi Goc and Mikee Osorio will be the second team, while Felicia Cui and Kaila Mendoza will represent College of St. Benilde.
Macie Candido and Jona Mae De Lima will suit up for Rizal Technological University, Adamson University will have Hannah Nicole Infante and Gracelchen Ave, and Ateneo has Jules Samonte and Ponggay Gaston.
University of the East, the last collegiate team, has yet to name its team while Air Force will have Anna Abanto and Jennifer Manzano, and Kempal will have Roma Doromal and Jasmine Nabor.
