KingWhale coach says Valdez has vastly improved since time in Attack Line


KingWhale Taipei has already played three games in the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference and has yet to drop a match.

And for head coach Teng Yen-Min, she has seen enough and is full of praises for the Filipino spikers.

KingWhale cruised to its third-straight win and claimed the last Final ticket after outlasting Creamline, 25-15, 17-25, 25-22, 24-26, 15-5, Friday at the Filoil Ecooil Centre.

The amiable bench tactician also pinpointed Alyssa Valdez.

Teng handled Valdez in 2017 when the latter played as an import for Attack Line in the Chinese Taipei Volleyball League.

“Alyssa her body, her jump, her energy, her moves, her thinking is good,” said Teng.

“In the player’s meeting, every player was saying that Alyssa is good, can control the ball, can dig, and smart.”

Teng was also in awe of the other Philippine clubs they have faced. KingWhale swept Army-Black Mamba in its first game while escaping PLDT in five frames.

“After the COVID-19, the Philippine teams will most probably be strong,” said the head coach.

“About the players, they are strong, powerful, their jumping and combination [are great].”

KingWhale will conclude its semifinals schedule tomorrow at 4 pm, against Cignal.

And with it being a no-bearing match, Teng hopes to use her younger players in lieu of the veterans.

“Tomorrow, we will relax and have fun! We will try younger players,” said Teng.

She said the squad will likely give captain setter Liao Yi-Jen, spiker Beatriz Flavio de Carvalho, and Chang Chih-Hsuan a rest tomorrow.
