UST Beach Volleyball Varsity Player, ABS-CBN Star Magic Talent Tricia Santos | Photos

The growling tigresses of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) will serve aces for season 76 (2013-2014) of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines or UAAP. Why? 'Coz their varsity is joined by a stunning and beautiful player in the persona of Tricia Santos!

Born as Patricia Mae Santos on May 18, 1995 in Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila (but she grew up in Davao), she stands at a towering 5 foot 8 inches, making her a virtual wall of defense behind the nets. Here's the entire team line up (see photo below).

Even before she was discovered by talent scouts of ABS-CBN Star Magic, who cast her in the reality TV series Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Clash edition, she has been a fanatic of the said sport.

She was a volleyball varsity player during her high school years (Ateneo de Davao). Now, pursuing tertiary education, she is playing for University of Santo Tomas (UST). She proudly wears its black and gold uniform at the beach or at indoor gyms.

In photos below, the beach volleyball team poses with "Sports Unlimited" hosts Dianne Castillejo and Marc Nelson:

Tricia is really pretty. She won first runner-up in the beauty pageant for the national sports fest “Palarong Pambansa”. Her favorite food is sinigang (meat in tamarind broth). Her fave show is 90210. She adores the actor Enchong Dee. She loves pink and listens to Colbie Caillat. Miss Santos lists “A Walk to Remember” as her favorite book.

Good luck to the Pontifical University of Santo Tomas (UST)! See you at the beach (or bleachers).
