MANILA, Philippines — Sisi Rondina heaped praise on Farm Fresh’s rising star Trisha Tubu after her career-high 32 points pushed Choco Mucho to its limits in the 2024 PVL All-Filipino Conference.

Tubu reset her career best with 30 spikes and two blocks but Farm Fresh couldn’t complete its upset of the powerhouse Choco Mucho after absorbing a 25-15, 24-26, 21-25, 25-21, 15-12 loss on Tuesday night at Philsports Arena.

Rondina, who saved the day for Choco Mucho with 29 points, had nothing but praise for Tubu after giving the Flying Titans a tough challenge before heading to the semifinal round with defending champion Creamline, Petro Gazz, and Chery Tiggo.

“We’re both high fliers. She jumps really high so I can’t get a good read, ” said Rondina after exchanging vicious spikes with Tubu. “She’s very competitive and we have this same mindset that we don’t want our teammates having a hard time. I hope her career peaks because she’s very promising in her position.”

Tubu, who surpassed her previous pro best of 30 points last year, was honored to be praised by the reigning All-Filipino MVP, whose words will inspire her to play even better next conference.

“It’s a good feeling to hear those words coming from someone like Sisi Rondina,” said the sophomore pro spiker. “I’m thankful I was able to perform well against Choco Mucho and our team was able to give them a good game.”


“I’m happy that I also got a career-high to end this conference on a high note even though we lost. We gave our best and we went all out and that’s what our coaches and Tito Frank [Lao] want from us.”

Tubu, who turned pro after one UAAP season with Adamson last year, is pleased with their progress under coach Jerry Yee and Japanese coaches as Farm Fresh had its best outing so far with three wins in 11 games, surpassing its two-win stint last December.

“We’re going to work on our stability for the next conference. We want to play well, not just against strong opponents. We want to go all out against all opponents, ” she said.
