Having missed the majority of the first round of the 2019 PVL Reinforced Conference due to a sore back, volleyball superstar Myla Pablo finally made her Motolite debut on Wednesday.
She saw action in a crucial juncture in the second round, where the fourth-seeded Motolite are jockeying for a Final Four position. And it was also against familiar foes Alyssa Valdez and the Creamline Cool Smashers.
Although Pablo only played in the first two sets, one of her fiercest competitors and good friends Jia Morado expressed joy over seeing the two-time Conference MVP back on the taraflex.
“I’m really happy she’s back,” beamed two-time Finals MVP Morado, who tossed 26 excellent sets in the game.
“It’s about time na nakabalik na si Bagyong Myla Pablo.”
On the other hand, Valdez also shared her thoughts on the 24-year-old.
Although Pablo only managed three points, Valdez – who had 10 points in the game – did not shy away from pointing out the impact that Motolite’s outside hitter has on her team.
Beyond the numbers, the five-time V-League MVP knows that Pablo’s presence alone will be of great help for any team she plays for – especially for a youth-laden team like Motolite.
As she put it, “We know ate Myla, kahit kailan siya gamitin, she’ll deliver.
“Not only in contributing in terms of points but also the leadership,” Valdez continued.
“I think she’s one of the veterans in the team na kailangan talaga ng Motolite para mas magkaroon sila ng communication as a team.”
