National University’s graduating senior was named as the 1st Best Middle Blocker of the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament, much to the chagrin of some fans.

Doria, however, humbly took the trophy and let the award speak for her worth.

“My parents told me to just be quiet because I didn’t take any part in all that controversy, whatever was given to me then I will accept it,” said Doria in Filipino Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

“I won’t entertain what people are saying about me.”

Doria finished the season with 0.69 kill blocks per frame for the Lady Bulldogs, who finished the season at no. 6 with a 4-10 record, while the 2nd Best Middle Blocker Maddie Madayag of Ateneo tallied 0.86 kill blocks per set.

This did not bode well with some fans.

NU’s quiet captain, however, rose through the unwarranted hate and chose to savor the moment.

“I’m thankful because I didn’t expect this,” said Doria. “All I could think of was I wasn’t going to win any award as long as I know that I gave my best this season.”
