As captain of the De La Salle Lady Spikers during season 73 and 74 of the UAAP volleyball games, Cruz propelled her team to greatness and dominated their rivals. The victory she secured for the team became part of the school's three-peat streak from 2011 to 2013. Cruz's participation in the women's volleyball team contributed to their Champion team awards during UAAP Season 68 and 71. For Season 72, she earned 1st Runner-up and was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) during the UAAP Awards Season 73 and 74. Not only that, her contributions to the Lady Spikers made the esteemed group a five-time finalist. In the end, they upheld the Lady Spikers' reputation as one of the best teams in Philippine volleyball and brought pride to their school's name. In spite of the personal challenges she faced in the past, she overcame these difficulties because of her unshakable core and steadfast faith in God.
