Eli Soyud of Adamson U gets the nod as UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week.
After an impressive game against her former team La Salle, Adamson University standout Eli Soyud emerged as the UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week.
The opposite spiker finished with a game-high 18 points, from 13 kills, three blocks and two service aces, in the Lady Falcons’ four-set victory over the Lady Spikers, 25-18, 15-25, 25-19, 25-22, on Saturday.
Soyud’s stellar performance helped Adamson to score its first win over La Salle since the second round of the Season 70.
“Bumalik ‘yung trust ko sa sarili ko siyempre ‘yung trust ng coaches sa akin parang naging buo ulit kasi nga mas nakakatulong ako hindi na parang dadalhin pa ako,” she said.
Lady Falcons coach Air Padda couldn’t be any prouder of Soyud.
“She had a rough start and now a lot of people want to underestimate her but then I never underestimated her. I know what Eli is capable of, she’s capable of a lot and man I’m so proud of her,” said Padda.
Soyud, who suited up for La Salle in Seasons 77 and 78, edged NationalUniversity stalwart Jaja Santiago, Ateneo skipper Maddie Madayag, Far Eastern University top hitter Bernadeth Pons and La Salle defense specialist Dawn Macandili.
