MANILA, Philippines—Alyssa Valdez could very well be the best spectator in the upcoming finals series of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament.

Valdez will watch two of her former schools in University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo duke it out for the Season 81 title.

The 25-year-old national athlete could not be more excited when the Lady Eagles locked up their spot in the finals after beating Far Eastern U and set up a best-of-three showdown with the Tigresses.

“And both my alma maters are in the Finals!” tweeted Valdez.

Although she zoomed to popularity as a Lady Eagle, Valdez started her UAAP career with UST where she won three titles and three MVPs in high school.

It was with Ateneo that Valdez ultimately grew to become, arguably, the most recognizable face in volleyball, winning three MVPs and two championships in her collegiate career.

The finals series between UST and Ateneo start on Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
