On their first time to join Shakey’s V-League, they won themselves the crown. But not after a thriller, ‘comeback’-riddled finale against Air Force Lady Jet Spikers that showed the squad’s ability to rally.
“Masaya, sobrang saya!” open spiker Kai Nepomuceno could only muster in our interview a week after the July 18 Game 3.
As part of their celebration, the girls are looking into a weekend R&R very soon in Hong Kong. And maybe Japan later on, they’re crossing their fingers, as it’s where the brand Pocari Sweat originated. The girls seem to be excited to be bonding with each other, their kind of friendship that sprang rather naturally even if they came from different teams and backgrounds.
“Tinginan palang, alam na,” outside hitter Rose Vargas explained the team’s relationship. “Tsaka iisa kami ng ugali.”
“Lahat kami, kalog,” setter Sarah Espelita seconded.
How much do these girls really know each other? We invited them to a round table Q&A where they spilled the secrets in their sorority!
How do you girls usually bond?
Luth Malaluan: Dancing, singing, at tsaka pagsesend ng picture sa Viber!
