If the championship series between the green rivals Far Eastern University and the De LaSalle University’s was a story of one girls’ triumph and determination to win, it would be about the story of a girl named Manila “ila” Santos, team captain of the De LaSalle Archers womens volleyball team who ended up as the Champions in the 71st Womens Volleyball Championships just last night (Sunday, Philippines).
Ila Santos was on her final game as a collegiate player yesterday and she ended it the best way any team captain win a series… winning the Finals MVP of the tournament with 16 points including three straight in a pivotal 5-1 finish to dethrone last year’s titlists, Lady Tamaraws.
But winning the MVP was not the only thing she was proud of that night. Giving the school it’s fifth title as the captain was something truly worth remembering as well.
The game scores: 25-19, 20-25, 25-21, 25-21, and all of this happened on a jam packed “The Arena “in San Juan.
- The Name – Manila… I’ve always thought it was something special.. and I was right.
- Long Time – I loved her then when she was still no the captain, and I love her now. It’s been a long and what a way to end it.
- Pretty – is it just me or is does this girl look as good as she plays. She’s pretty!
