Dawn Macandili honored as Ms. Volleyball 2017

Ms. Everywhere is Ms. Volleyball!

Congratulations to Dawn Macandili for being awarded Miss Volleyball 2017 by the Philippine Sportswriters Association. Dawn continues to set records as she once again becomes the first libero to receive this honor which has traditionally been given to scoring players.

Of course, this award is very well-deserved. Macandili was part of the DLSU team that won the UAAP Women's Volleyball trophy, and she also took home the Best Receiver award. She was also awarded Best Libero at the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix, where she helped F2 Logistics win the championship.

For me, though, it was Macandili's international exposure that was the highlight of her 2018. She joined the Philippine National Team at the SEA Games where the Philippines placed fourth. She also joined the  at the AVC Asian Senior Women's Championship, an event where the Philippines competed against Thailand, South Korea, Kazakhstan and Vietnam. Despite playing in a league that included some of the best players in the world, Dawn received the 2nd best libero award in that event. Amazing!

Congratulations, Dawn! You definitely deserve to be called Ms. Volleyball 2017.
