UP, UP, AND AWAY. DLSU is yet to lose a set after suffering its first setback in the season two weeks ago.
De La Salle University rolled to its third consecutive victory on Sunday at the San Juan Arena.
Like Adamson University three days before, the University of the East seemed to have no chance against the defending champions.
Counting their also straight sets win against National University a week ago, the Lady Spikers have now won all of their last nine sets.
This, coming after DLSU dropped its first game in the tournament.
Without a doubt, that loss to the University of the Philippines brought back focus to the Lady Spikers. As Kianna Dy even put it, “Nung natalo kami, wake up call talaga sa amin yun.”
Dy then went on to say that their three sweeps in a row were just well-deserved fruits of the determination they have had during practices. “Gigil talaga kami. Diba nag-training kami after nung (loss),” she shared.
She then continued, “Dun lang lumabas yung totoong training talaga. Kaya yung dapat gawin namin, yun yung pinakita namin after nung (loss).”
Displaying dominance as they head into a highly-anticipated rivalry game with fellow league-leader Ateneo de Manila University, Dy said the faithful over at Taft Avenue can expect them to only keep the fire burning. “Gusto naming patunayan na kahit maraming nawala, we can still do it,” she said.
She then continued, “Since maraming umangat na team, mas mahirap yung competition. That’s why we have to win even more now.”
