The UP Women’s Volleyball Team had a hot start this season, with a promising 4-0 beginning their UAAP Season 79 journey. However, after traumatic losses to Ateneo and NU twice, with the loss of key players Jewel Lai pre-season and Pia Gaiser ending her UAAP journey early on due to an ACL, the UP Fighting Lady Maroons found themselves out of contention in the Final 4 after giving away their last game against the FEU Lady Tamaraws, 21-25, 21-25, 25-27.


Kathy Bersola, Nicole Tiamzon and Pia Gaiser officially ended their UAAP journey yesterday at the Filoil Flying V San Juan Arena. Instrumental to the resurgence of the women’s volleyball team in the UAAP, the trio started the winning ways as they broke the slump in Season 76 and made the Final 4 in Season 78.


Along the way, they also beat top guns – Season 77 champions Ateneo Lady Eagles, lead by Alyssa Valdez then; as well as, DLSU Lady Spikers this season in three straight sets.

What’s next for these girls? Bersola and Gaiser will be taking up medicine while Tiamzon is going to be part of a semi-pro league soon.
