8 UAAP Season 79 Athletes Who Stole Our Hearts

Temperature’s rising.

| April 18, 2017

Jayvee Sumagaysay (Men’s Volleyball – University of Santo Tomas)

Probably one of the fiercest middle hitters of the league, the 4th year Sports Wellness Management student means business when stepping inside the court. Game commentators describe him as serious and always on his game face but according to him, he is the total opposite when outside the court. Now on the final stretch of the season, expect him to perform even better than his usual. Good news for his fans is that he still has one more playing year left and for sure he’ll do everything to bring UST back to the Promised Land.

 

Tin Patrimonio (Women’s Lawn Tennis – National University)

Athleticism definitely runs in their genes. The daughter of PBA legend Alvin Patrimonio has been ruling the tennis courts for the entirety of her UAAP career. During her five year stint with the Lady Bulldogs, she has led the team to four consecutive UAAP championships (seasons 76 to 79) and has been also named the MVP of tournament last UAAP Season 78. Now that’s how you end your collegiate career–with a bang!

 

CK Clemente (Men’s Badminton – University of the Philippines)

CK has it all – the looks, smarts and athleticism, that will make the girls swoon over him. The current co-captain of UP Men’s Badminton Team and 4th year Sports Science major has perfectly showcased how it is like to be an isko-atleta (time management is the key!). He helped spearheading his team to a podium finish this season. The incoming captain next season vows to be all out on his final playing year.

 

Pauline Gaston (Women’s Volleyball – Ateneo de Manila University)

Popularly known as “Ponggay” in the volleyball community, the student-athlete/model never fails to steal everyone’s hearts on or off the volleyball court. Not only is she known for her skill and model-like charm, but also for her attitude and sense of humor as well in front of the camera. Thank goodness she still has three more playing years left in the UAAP.
