Rondina admitted that Van Sickle is a more experienced player but she’s eager to learn from the former US NCAA Division 1 star in their first of many showdowns this season.

“Siyempre alam ko mas maraming experience yun. Pareho kami beach volley nilalaro niya and indoor. Looking forward na madepensahan ko yung atake niya and alam ko may matutunan din ako sa kanya lalong lalo na pagdating sa atake,” said Rondina, a longtime Philippine women’s volleyball team member.

After representing the country as a full-time beach volleyball player from 2020 to last year, Rondina made an emphatic return to indoor action last PVL Season as she carried the Flying Titans to their first-ever finals appearance and emerged as the All-Filipino Conference MVP.

“Masaya kasi unang una sa lahat nag-connect din kami ni Mars and siyempre yung gusto makita ni coach yung sistema niya and yun po trinabaho lang namin kung ano yung dapat naming trabahuin,” she said. “And kita niyo naman po wala akong receive kanina pero tinatiyaga ko naman and thankful ako kay mars sa tiwala and sa tiwala na binibigay sa team.”

The former UAAP MVP out of the University of Santo Tomas said they have to work on their composure towards the end game against the new-look Petro Gazz under Japanese coach Koji Tsuzurabara.

“Yung challenge lang namin is sarili namin paano namin lalabanan sarili namin lalo na pag magkakasitwasyon na dikdikan yung laban and magtrabaho kami sa sistema ni coach and paniniwalaan namin yung programa niya and papakita lang namin kung ano yung tinetrain namin,” Rondina said.
