AC Miner still finding FEU-D form in Ateneo

AC Miner’s commitment and eventual enrollment at Ateneo de Manila University after she graduated high school at Far Eastern University-Diliman made some waves in the volleyball community.

This as Miner will be a valuable weapon for the Blue Eagles, who are looking to defend their UAAP volleyball championship won in Season 81 before the COVID-19 pandemic cut short Season 82.

Miner towered over everyone back in the Season 82 girls’ volleyball tournament on her way to bagging the 1st Best Middle Blocker award for the Baby Lady Tamaraws.

But the Miner of today is not yet at par with the Miner of FEU-D in Season 82 juniors’ division.

And she was the first to acknowledge that.

“I can say that I’m still adjusting until now and it’s not really a quick adjustment that I can make,” said the Ateneo rookie middle blocker.

“The level of volleyball here in the seniors’ division is very different compared to what I was used to back in high school but I think I’m adjusting well to it naman.”

But looking at the numbers of the recently-concluded first round of the Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament, the Blue Eagle is already up there with the best.

Miner was just behind league-leader Lorene Toring of Adamson University in the Best Blocker category with 13 kill blocks and an average of 0.5 blocks per set.

Ateneo head coach Oliver Almadro though echoed Miner that she is still adjusting and is nowhere near her peak performance level.

“I’m happy with AC’s performance,” said the animated Blue Eagles tactician.

“Slowly, nakukuha na niya yung gusto naming makuha (niya). Kailangan lang talaga na masanay siya sa ganitong klaseng level.”
