for her outstanding and distinctive defense game which propelled her team to multiple UAAP championships and identified her as one of the finest blockers in Philippine volleyball
Baron began her career in volleyball in 2012 and quickly honed her skills under the guidance of her coach. During her first year however, she was unable to make the team. Baron’s second year also proved uneventful. Yet, she still persevered and worked on her game with fiery passion in her heart. By UAAP Season 78, Baron made a breakthrough. She made the starting six and became the season Best Blocker with a championship trophy. From that moment on, success followed her. She ended her five-season UAAP career with three-peat as best blocker and MVP award. Her other achievements include winning gold and silver at the All Filipino Conference (2016 and 2017 respectively). She was also the gold medalist for the 2017 Grand Prix and won 2nd Best Middle Blocker. Currently, Baron is playing for a club team in a professional volleyball league.
