Alyanna Bags Silver in ASEAN Schools Games

“It was an unforgettable experience being with my teammates, representing the Philippines. We all felt proud to be able to play the sport we love in honor of our country,” exclaimed Fourth Year Southville Student Alyanna Ong, Forward of the Careline-Pilipinas Under-18 Women’s Basketball Team that finished second in the 2nd ASEAN Schools Games held at the MABA Coliseum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, July 12-21, 2010.
Alyanna, who made the pivotal three-point that paved the way to an overtime win over Singapore, said that playing for the Philippine Team was a dream come true for her. She has been a Southville Varsity Player for five years now and has received several awards like the 2008 ISAC Mythical Ten, 2009 ISAC Mythical Ten, 2010 ISAC Mythical Ten and the 2010 WBL Most Valuable Player.
Ms. Rea Villa, the Head of the SISC Athletics Department, said, “Alyanna has grown up to be a real athlete. An athlete is different from a player. A player is someone who just participates in a sport while an athlete is someone trained to compete in sports. Alyanna is an athlete. Her discipline, passion, and dedication to her sport paved the way for her to be a vital member of the national team. We are proud of her.”
