Sidelined for five months due to an injury to her right knee, Kim Dy embarked on a venture to find her form in the 2019 PSL All-Filipino Conference.
Upon her return to the fold of F2 Logistics, the 5-foot-11 opposite spiker was grasping for momentum while she battled through inconsistency for most of the preliminaries.
It was an unsteady journey back to her peak form. Still, Dy left it all on the Taraflex regardless, helping the Cargo Movers barge back into the PSL All-Filipino Finals.
In the championship series, the product of De La Salle University was a picture of consistency on the defensive end.
Dy stifled the Cignal HD Spikers with her blocking prowess, netting four kill blocks in each bout. Her best performance came in F2 Logistics’ title-clinching win in Game Two, where she collected 13 markers — built on nine attacks and four rejections.
“Iniisip ko na I have to give my all na kasi ayaw na namin mag-Game Three,” the 24-year-old admitted.
“So, all or nothing na,”
Roughly 10 weeks into her return to competitive volleyball, Dy hoisted a championship trophy. And with a gold medal hanging around her neck, she was overwhelmed with emotions.
“Super saya ng feeling kasi ang tagal ko din hindi nagfa-finals kasi last All-Filipino, I was injured also. Hindi ako masyadong nakalaro ng Finals Grand Prix since I was out,” she recalled.
“Sarap ng feeling ng Finals ulit.”
At the end of the day, Dy is just happy to regain her bearings at the most opportune time.
“Finally, sa last game na ‘to, nakuha ko na yung kumpiyansa ko, kasi it’s very important to get your confidence back.”
