Ateneo's most recognizable volleyball player, Alyssa Valdez, explained the importance of their UAAP women's volleyball title win to the Ateneo community during an interview on Anthony Taberna's Tapatan ni Tunying (TNT).

"After how many 30 years? Na unexpected pa ang pagkakuha namin ng championship trophy, syempre malaking pride po and sobrang, feeling ko lang, proud po yung school, yung community sa na-achieve ng women's volleyball," the 20-year-old outside hitter said.

Valdez also admitted that the team, composed mostly of rookie players, even experienced having jitters before starting their title series against defending champions the De La Salle Lady Spikers.

"Lumabas po kami one hour before the game, kasi nga po rookies and as a team bago lang kami sa finals, parang bumaba ang excitement namin," remembers the Ateneo player. "kasi pag nakita namin yung [dami ng] tao, parang 'Wow, totoo ba 'to? sobrang dami ng tao.'"
