Lady Tamaraws dedicate UP win to absent veterans

Entering their match against UAAP rivals UP Lady Maroons in the PVL Collegiate Conference, Far Eastern University missed a huge chunk of their main rotation.

FEU had to play without leading scorer Celine Domingo and middle blocker Czarina Carandang due to injuries while winger Ivana Agudo played in the Beach Volleyball Republic Manila Open tournament at the Sands by the Bay.

With around 35 percent of their scoring missing, FEU would have had a reason to loss.

But, the Lady Tamaraws remained steadfast and played their hearts out for their injured teammates.

FEU eventually frustrated UP into submission in five grueling sets.

“Siyempre, nag-aaala din po kami kas kulang kami pero ‘yun nga po sabi ni coach (George Pascua) na gamitin naming advantage ‘yun na maging motivation namin ‘yung naging kulang kami,” said FEU open hitter Heather Guino-O who tallied a team-high 13 points.

“Isipin namin na mas kailangan namin ipanalo para doon sa ibang nawala sa amin — na hindi sila malungkot dahil hindi sila nakapag-contribute sa team.”

For an FEU team looking for a new leader to take Bernadeth Pons’ place, games like these go a long way.

“Sobrang sarap din sa pakiramdam kasi parang napakita po namin na ‘yung hirap na ginagawa namin sa training nailalabas namin siya na eto pala ‘yung magiging resulta ng paghihirap namin,” added the Caviteña.
