Philippine Superliga club F2 Logistics is still intact.
This is the assurance given by none other than Cargo Movers skipper Aby Maraño, Tuesday morning during the Philippine Sportswriters Association forum.
“Okay naman po ‘yung F2. The team is still intact and solid,” said the eight-time PSL Best Middle Blocker during the online session powered by SMART and presented by San Miguel Corp., Go For Gold, MILO, Amelie Hotel Manila, Braska Restaurant, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).
F2 Logistics, like the rest of the local volleyball scene, has not been on the Taraflex for almost a year. The Cargo Movers were able to play one game during the 2020 PSL Grand Prix.
Still, F2 Logistics, headed by CEO Efren Uy, continued to support the players despite the pandemic. And for that, the 28-year-old Marano is grateful.
“We are very thankful to the management and team owners na kahit na during the pandemic, hindi kami pinabayaan. Talagang nandiyan pa rin ang suporta sa amin,” said the proud daughter of Passi, Iloilo.
Though there is still no definite date when the season will begin, Marano hopes that the volleyball community remains patient with the developments.
After all, even the players are itching to get back to the volleyball court.
“I think ‘yung mga lumalabas na balita tungkol sa team namin, masasabi ko na walang katotohanan. Kalmahan niyo lang guys. Kalma naman kami,” pleaded Marano, who was speaking on behalf of the five-time PSL champions.
“Huwag kayo mag-away-away diyan. Ang mga players ngayon ay naka-focus sa pagpapalakas at pagpapa-kondisyon. We are just making sure that everyone is still in shape so that anytime i-pullout kami para maglaro ulit, ang players ng F2 ay very, very ready and game na!”
