PVL: Nakaka-proud siya -- Myla Pablo on sister Marites
Binibigay naman niya ‘yung best niya kaya sobrang happy ako na kahit papaano nakakatulong siya sa team niya -- Pocari Sweat-Air Force's Myla Pablo on sister Marites of PetroGazz

Pocari Sweat-Air Force top hitter Myla Pablo has nothing but praises for her sister PetroGazz new recruit Marites after the siblings’ first encounter in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference.

“Nakaka-proud, sobra kasi first time ko siya makalaban sa PVL, professional league nga,” said Pablo of her young sister Wednesday night as the Lady Warriors notched its first win in two matches in the season-ending tournament at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center here.    

“Nakitaan ko siya ng potential sa loob ng court, medyo parang isa siya sa mga senior na din na nagsasalita na napapansin ko,” added Pablo. “Binibigay naman niya ‘yung best niya kaya sobrang happy ako na kahit papaano nakakatulong siya sa team niya.”

But it was the two-time conference Most Valuable Player and the Lady Warriors who walked away with a hard-fought 25-20, 29-31, 25-15, 17-25, 15-5 victory.

Myla Pablo registered a game-high 22 points to carry her team into the win column after a four-set defeat at the hands of Ateneo de Manila University. 

The Pablo sisters last played together back in 2016 in Myla’s last year with National University in the UAAP. The following year Marites transferred to College of St. Benilde and is set to see action wearing the Lady Blazers jersey this NCAA Season 94.

While Myla is vocal with her praises for her sister, Marites shares how her ‘ate’ helps her develop into a better volleyball player. 

“First of all po, I always look up to her kasi magaling talaga siya tapos sobrang bait niya as a sister,” said the younger Pablo, who scored six markers. “Tapos lagi niya po akong ina-advice and ‘yung mga talagang words of wisdom niya shine-share niya sa akin.”

“I’m so proud of her and sobrang exciting yung game kasi first time talaga namin naglaro na magkalaban,” added the 21-year old Marites.

Myla is always generous with her advices for her sister.  

“Minsan ‘pag may mga tune up games siya sinasabi niya sa akin, ‘Ate ang panget ng laro ko. Anong gagawin ko?’Tinuturuan ko naman siya na parang unang-una ‘wag siyang sisimangot sa loob ng court and then ‘yun nga bigay lang niya ‘yung best niya sa team, alam kong kailangan siya ng coach niya,” she said. “Isa siya sa mga ha-handle ng team niya so ayun sabi ko lang ibigay mo yung best mo na hanggat kaya mo.”

The Pablo sisters will again meet at the court in Pocari Sweat and PetroGazz’s elimination round rematch on Nov. 7 at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
