2 Victonara Galang (DLSU)

Awarded as "Rookie of the Year" in her freshman year and "Most Valuable Player" in her sophomore year, Galang appeared in all of the statistics except for the setting department for which she is not a setter. - crockydyle

Ara Galang is a consistent player, she's great and strong. No player even can defeat her capability to play volleyball.

She can do a lot whenever she's on court. As you can observe she's never been substituted in de la salle and yet she can still move as if nothing happens

A libero-like spiker. Floor defense? If there is Ara she's very reliable. plus her variety attacks are truly amazing. Offense to defense she's effective that's why she's Aramazing.❤💚💪 She's not only smart and talented in terms of volleyball but at the same time her acads are superb👏👏. Valedictorian from elem to hschl then consistent deans lister in Also, she is a kind of player who never speaks about her achievements--so humble. You will not really know because she never talks about it, unless you search it. Lovee u araa. Truly an inspiration.

Happy that you are coming back to your amazing form.
You are getting there. God bless u.

sooo Happy that knew you, you may not know who I am but I am one of those thousands of people who love you very much.❤💚💕

3 Rachelle Anne Daquis (FEU)

This player is really timeless. Had been into her play since her UAAP days. Had seen her struggles, victories and defeat. She knows how to stand and bounce back for every fall. One step backward.. , two steps forward! - her patented hop, summarizes her character.

Always been a positive inspiration. To make a person interested in volleyball when the sport really doesn't matter at the beginning is such a big accomplishment. Had been following and supporting Philippines' women volleyball because of Daquis!

If the criteria for being the best would be pure skill and talent, I would pick Valdez or Aiza M. But embodying the enitre sport, putting heart in every play, establishing leadership and gracing the court with passion... Is DAQUIS.. Should have been number ONE on this list...

Timeless Beauty pak ganern!

4 Aleona Denisse Santiago (NU)

She's No. 1 for me merely because she can play as middle hitter/quicker, open spiker, back row attacker, she has improved her defense at the back line. What else can you ask for if she's on your team? She just needs to be more aggressive on her attacks like any other players here.

Best volleyball player I've ever seen in the women's league.

Dindin you are no. 1 cause you are the star in volleyball in the Philippines not others

We all know that in volleyball, height is might and during her time, she had the determination to win in every match although she might easily get angry, dindin has the potential to play volleyball.

5 Aiza Maizo (UST)

She's really precise with her spikes and she can easily improvise with her attacks. She's also a high-spirited team member that also lifts her teammates morale.

Best utility player I've ever seen, and definitely one of the best female players that has graced the Philippine volleyball court. Superb blocking skills, very versatile and smart. Showcases great variation of attacks, knows how to score without always relying on power. Always gives off a calm and composed aura on the court even under high pressure. A leader by example, always uplifts members when down. Very humble.

Scoring machine and closer, utility player, best variations of attacks, excellent in defense. Superb skills

The phenom on her UAAP Days. She is a very deadly weapon of the Tigresses when it comes to scoring and reception. Her leadership qualities is also exceptional as she knows how to motivate her teammates when they are down and trailing!

6 Maria Angeli Tabaquero (UST)

The captain of the RP Team, in my opinion, is the best female volleyball player in the Philippines for her strong defense, consistent serves, and power attacks. - crockydyle

A great captain, a strong player. What else can a volleyball team ask for? Tabaquero have it all. Power attacks, strong defense and offense. I really love watcHiNg your game.

Should be in the top 3 on this list!

Maria Angelie Tabaquero is a full package outside hitter I said so because aside from her high percentage offense she can also contributes to defense. Angge Tabaquero is a very efficient and smart outside hitter. I haven't seen anyone like Angge Tabaquero.

She should be the top 2 on the list.

She is the star of the philippine womens volleyball since 90% of her attacks are about to point.

She is the tallest volley ball girl and she my idol

She is the new star of the philippine volleyball since 90% of her attacks are about to point

Because jaja is very talented and very smart player

9 Abigail Marano (DLSU)

She's formidable in the defensive end and can let you eat dust in the offense.
Consistent, dependable and a great team leader.

There can never be another BMDC queen than Marano. Her fierceness and leadership on court is what separates her from all other middle blockers. Not only is she an epitome of leadership but also of excellence having claimed two MVP awards during her collegiate stint; as well as multiple Best Middle Blocker awards from her collegiate and up to her Semi-pro league career.

Because she is a great leader. She encourage her team to fight and enjoy the game

She's well known for her swag reactions after getting a point.

Her strong attacks were impressive

She is still the queen of Philippine Volleyball, Her down the line attack is still the greatest of all the players. No one can beat that.

She's the BEST that's all

She is known for her butterfly approach and her leaping abilities, she’s one of the deadly weapons of UST’s prime

The Contenders

11 Jia Morado

Even a rookie last year then I believe she's the best setter that season... Ateneo's unbelievable championship was perfectly steered by her... Her talent for me loomed far better than those of the veterans... Though she's got alyssa valdez as her main gun and the top scorer of the league... Her mastery of navigation with all the other guns of the team was superior to all the other setters of the other teams... There could be some slight shorts in the tabulations but overall I see this young lady the smartest and bravest risk taker of her business... And that's why they became 2x champions already... These next remaining years for her will be fruitful and I believe her steering will be the one great element for repeat championships for the team... God bless... !

Now I think this type of players should be in a different category than those of the likes of Alyssa Valdez. 'Cause a team simply can't function without a setter. And who does the job better than Jia Morado? In such a young age too. I honestly think that she is just as great as her teammate Valdez, it just so happens that they have different positions. And unfortunately, hers just doesn't get that much credit.

My interest in volleyball started season 76 and I think Jia deserves to be among the top ten, just like in basketball she's the point guard dictating plays and she already got the best setter award.

Great navigator and court leader. Best when off court as she shows great example during practice and in any team activities.

22 Gretchen Ho (ADMU)

In my opinion Gretchen Ho is the BEST!

Seems to be intelligent and smart. Beautiful and one of the best volleyball player.

She's very good in timing as well as defense. Her running heat is functioning effectively.

For me grerchen ho is the best! kahit hindi sya best scorer minsan.. pero kapag nag set si jem ferrer skanya ng bola laging puntos at napaka smart play maglaro in court hindi lang sya magaling maganda pa everyone's know that her charisma every time na sya and mag se serve and lakas nh energy ng mga tao sakanya since nabuo and fab 5 doon talaga sumikat and volleyball mas pinasikat pa nung si allysa valdez...

Superb defense and offense but needs more height

An all-around-player! Strong spikes! And hopping power is so good! Definitely embodies the saying, "Small but Terrible! "

Sheila Marie "bang"pined a is the best for me, despite of her height

24 Lizlee Ann Gata (AdU)

She plays without fanfare but certainly always gets the work done.

She's one of the best player I've known for, especially being libero.

Being awarded as "Best Digger" in the Shakey's V-League and UAAP for 5 times and 3 times, respectively. She comes out as one of the best liberos in the country. Because of her unbeatable defense, her team Adamson is known for its excellent floor defenses and receptions. - crockydyle

The most beautiful of all! The rest of the liberos look up to her

25 Maika Ortiz (UST)

Her running attack form is said to be one of the most perfect running attack forms ever seen in the court. Because of her strong attacks and unbeatable blocks, she is awarded as Best Attacker in UAAP S74 and Best Blocker in SVL. - crockydyle

Master of the Running Spike...

Queen of running attack

There's still no one like her since La Salle's golden days. No one can hammer balls like she did.

His high jumping ability and powerful spikes delivers a great impression that will last for sure..

If there is a VOLLEYBALL WALL OF FAME.. SHE AND HER SISTER MAYETTE SHOULD BE IN IT. She proved that height is not a hindrance to get an MVP AWARD. If you don't know and never seen these sisters play.. Don't call yourself a volleyball fan. In 2005 they won bronze medal in SEA Games.

Seriously so underrated. In her prime, she was a score machine, and her spiking skills were unmatched and the best in all-around play. Count on her to bring a score to her team every time the ball gets set to her. Team CMAC!

She has power and have improved her playing style.

44 Bea De Leon (ADMU)

My best rookie of this season... I'd actually fight for her not being given that award... Though she missed a number of games due to injury I believe she was by far the best among all her batchmates... Even not fully recovered we have witnessed how she played strong attack and defense at the net... ! Even after being blocked she just keeps going... And does not mind at all being outsmarted at her defense she just keeps at it as if there's no tomorrow coming... For me she's my top workhorse with amy ahomiro at the net... See her become more potent in her coming seasons and she'll be one factor for ateneo's next championships... God bless... !

Will like any other rookie have her start days! Watchout, it may be the last and may just surprise everyone with her skill. Most importantly the ones honed by Coach Tai!

A Very TALL rookie of ADMU, she kills the ball with a purpose

One of the Best Middle Blocker in her generation. BeaDeL, is very good on blocking maganda and timing niya sa net, and magaling din and Quick Attacks niya maganda and connection nila ni Jia.

UAAP74 Best scorer. She's not only has a powerful spike but also she is great receiver/defender! Wait for her recovery and she will rock the floor

50 Amy Ahomiro (ADMU)

Season 77 finals mvp... ! Another top player at the net for me... Offense and defense... ! Especially blocking... She really is so good at that that her blocks are so timed to deny very important game changer points for the opponent... ! Her leftie quicks are so good the other side can't track her... And so witty she just simply finds awkwardly guarded locations to pitch the ball for score... She will be one factor for ateneo's next championship after the 2 they just had... God bless... !

She is so very wonder player of ateneo

She's good in blocking. I love her...

The second best player in ateneo...
