UAAP 82: ADMU has eyes on everyone in new volleyball season
The Blue Eagles are coming after everyone as they go for the title this year.

It's safe to say that Ateneo's men's volleyball program has been doing pretty well even as some key figures like Marck Espejo and head coach Oliver Almadro had already left the team.

In Season 81, the Blue Eagles got double digit wins and made the Final Four as a no. 3 seed.

In Season 82, they're all for more of that success as the team is ready to truly step out of the shadows of yesteryear's glory.

"Nung una mahirap, pero ngayon syempre hindi naman kaming pwede umasa sa kung iniwan nila [Espejo, Coach O]," Ron Medalla told ABS-CBN Sports.

"Gagawa kami ng sarili namin. Alam naman namin na kakayanin namin," he added.

Last year, Ateneo's playoff run stopped at the hands of Far Eastern University, missing out on what would have been six straight trips to the UAAP Finals.

The Blue Eagles are coming after everyone as they go for the title this year.

"Para sakin, lahat mahirap kalaban. Lahat naman nagpapaka-hirap sa ginagawa nila," Medalla said.

"Lahat yan mahihirapan kami, expected na yan. Wala kami sinisinu-sino," he added.
