The UP culture of excellence is making a mad comeback in the women’s volleyball team.
This cannot be any truer than UPWVT’s string of recent highs that’s record-breaking in the university’s modern volleyball era: combined podium finishes and individual awards in the grand stages like UAAP, UniGames, Philippine National Games and Shakey’s VLeague, also in coveted cups as Founder’s, Manila Fun and UAPPY.
Even the resurgence of #UPfight cheers from volleyball fans all over the world is simply phenomenal.
That’s why for 2017, the squad is full-on in keeping this momentum up with its freshly carved-out Fighting Maroons identity, its new true north: Giting x Tapang. That “never give up” tatag attitude, that “do whatever it takes” talino mindset, and that “keep trying” tibay mentality all rolled into a single phrase heartbeat that’s key to winning in volleyball in more ways than one.
The team is at a unique point in UP volleyball history where gold medal heritage finally meets present championship potential. And there can be no time that’s more exciting to be a UP supporter than today
