   The overall champion of Women’s Volleyball in the 2012 Bulacan State University (BulSU) Intramurals, Sarmiento Campus, has its best players who were behind the success of the team in every game. One of them is Roxanne Arellano.

            Standing 5’2 in height, this 17-year-old, first year Bachelor of Science in Business Administration student and spiker of Sarmiento Stars from Sapang Palay, Bulacan already had plenty of experiences in the world of sports.  She plays track and field and high jump, but the sport which she deeply fell in love with is volleyball.

            Because of her great dedication in volleyball, Arellano showcases her great skills everytime she was given a chance to play, like in this year’s intramurals.  She was not part of Sarmiento’s varsity but still, she gladly accepted the challenge of being one of the representatives in that event.

            No one influenced her to play volleyball. She just learned it from herself.  She started playing since she was in elementary at Tarlac Elementary School, around 10 or 11 years old.  She continued it in high school at Tarlac Estepon High School, then when she started joining varsity and tryouts.

            The journey of Arellano in becoming one of the country’s best athletes someday does not ended in this intramurals.  It was just her start, and she will still pursue volleyball even after college.
