Adamson star Trisha Genesis shone the brightest in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference, as the Lady Falcon bagged the tournament Most Valuable Player award on Saturday.

The sophomore topped the scoring department with 14.6 points per game in the elimination round and finishing second in attack percentage with 39.46% efficiency rating.

Genesis, also adjudged best outside spiker, also landed at second spot in the service category with 0.81 aces per set.

Her stellar performance also led Adamson to its first-ever title in the league and first major championship since winning it all in the defunct V-League Season 7 second conference back in 2010.

Genesis’ rookie teammate, Lorene Toring, was named best middle blocker while University of Santo Tomas freshman Imee Hernandez took best middle blocker award.

Ateneo prized recruit Faith Nisperos, who tallied 41.46% efficiency rate, received the other best outside spiker recognition, while teammate Jaja Maraguinot was named best setter after averaging 6.39 excellent sets per frame behind champion playmaker Louie Romero (6.75) of Adamson in the elimination round.

Romero won finals MVP after helping Adamson defeat UST in two games in the best-of-three finals.

College of Saint Benilde’s Klarisa Abriam and Arianne Daguil took the best opposite hitter and best libero awards, respectively, to round out the individual award winners.
