BACOLOD CITY -- Ara Galang will sit out F2 Logistics’ campaign in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix.
Talking to fans who flocked the PSL’s meet-and-greet event at SM Bacolod here Friday, the former De La Salle University standout revealed that she will need some time to rest and recover from a maintenance procedure done on her previously injured knee.
“Personally, siyempre medyo sad ako pero OK lang din naman sa akin kasi alam ko naman ‘yung kondisyon ko,” said Galang, who helped the Cargo Movers capture the 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference crown and to a runner-up in the same tournament this season.
Galang is not in the official lineup of F2 Logistics but still joined teammates Aby Marano, Dawn Macandili, Cha Cruz and Kim Kianna Dy to promote the league’s triple-bill playdate set on Saturday at University of St. La Salle-Bacolod.
Representatives of eight teams not including guest team University of Sto. Tomas attended the event and were welcomed by Bacolod City congressman Greg Gasataya.
The UAAP Season 75 Most Valuable Player sustained an ACL, MCL tear and big bone bruise on her left knee during the 77th UAAP semifinals match against National University back in 2015. She came back the following year to lead DLSU in snapping archrival Ateneo de Manila University’s back-to-back reign.
“Alam ko rin na hindi pa ako healthy,” who needed to undergo a procedure to drain fluid on her knee. “Pero alam ko na nandiyan naman ang mga teammates ko, kaya naman nila maglaro.”
Despite being on the sideline for this tournament, Galang said that she’s just happy to help the team on some other way.
“Happy pa rin naman ako na part pa rin ako ng team at PSL,” said Galang.
The Cargo Movers will make their debut against unbeaten Petron at 6:00 p.m.
Cocolife and Cignal HD will meet at 4:00 p.m. after the curtain-raiser between two-time champion Foton and Generika-Ayala in the curtain-raiser at 2:00 p.m.
