Green Gallery: Hannah Viterbo

Playing her fifth and final year this season for the Lady Archers, Team Captain Hannah Monica Viterbo, a known shooter from De La Salle- Santiago Zobel high school, is the second lead scorer for the Lady Archers this season.

This 22 year old shooting guard proved that height is not a factor in shooting threes. She led the league after the elimination round with 30 three-pointers; she is sixth in the three-point percentage category.

Even as an off-the-bench type of player, she has helped the Lady Archers top the three-point Field Goal Percentage, Perimeter points, and Free throw shooting category. She also spearheaded the bench of the Lady Archers to an average of almost 23 points per game, a first in the league.

The last four playing years of Hannah Viterbo did not go well enough to delight the DLSU community, but this season was a different one for Hannah and the whole Lady Archers team. For the first time after 10 years, the team is back on the Finals.

“It has been an overwhelming experience for me this season. I’m a graduating student and this will be my last year in playing, so everything that has happened is a blessing. I’ll try to cherish every moment and give my best every time I play,” said Viterbo about her experience for her last season of play.

She might not play for the next years to come, but she will remain as an inspiration to the Lady Archers and to the DLSU community.

After a stellar five-year eligibility in the UAAP, this Advertising Management graduate looks to continue playing ball in the future, if not, she opts to work as a professional.

“I think I’m going to rest for a while in playing. After sometime, I want see myself working in the corporate world,” stated Hannah.

“There were so many lessons learned, these lessons help me build my character and become a better person,” Hannah confessed as she did not have any regrets on her UAAP career.

After this season, the Lasallian community might see more of Viterbo, not as a player, but as a professional Lasallian who once wore green and once shouted ‘Animo’ with all her heart.

She thanked basketball for everything she has achieved, and she owes her success to it.

“I believe, basketball made me who I am today,” Hannah ended.
