After such storied collegiate careers, spikers Mika Esperanza and Kathy Bersola pursued a different passion: studying medicine.

Despite the demands of the postgrad life, these two were given another chance at volley greatness, this time, in Palarong Medisina.

These two ladies brought their UAAP experience in the annual tournament and put the rest of the field on notice.

Mika carried her championship winning ways from La Salle to UERM, copping back-to-back titles for the school.

Meanwhile, Kathy had her first taste of Palarong Medisina, and she didn’t disappoint. UP Manila’s volleybelles placed on the podium during the middle blocker’s rookie ‘season.’

Congrats, ladies!
