Louie Romero brings back PVL headband vs Ateneo

A very confident Louie Romero showed up in Adamson’s first victory of the season at the expense of Ateneo in the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena on Tuesday night.

And it was all because she finally brought her signature bandana back which she wore during the Lady Falcons’ 2019 Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference title run.2019-PVL-Collegiate-Conference-Adamson-def-UST-Louie-Romero Louie Romero brings back PVL headband vs Ateneo AdU News UAAP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Binalik ko lang talaga siya kasi tingin ko yun yung kulang sa akin like nung PVL, nung Season 82, ito lagi yung suot suot ko so parang ang gaan sa feeling ko kapag suot ko siya,” said the 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference Finals MVP, whose idol Jia Morado also sported the same look a few years back.

“Sobrang taas ng morale ko at hindi ako nag do-doubt sa sarili ko saka sa team. Grabe yung tiwala ko talaga.”

Adamson lost the first set against the defending champions before eventually taking the next three to secure its first win in three games. The Lady Falcons oozed with confidence, especially in the fourth set where they went on a 19-5 blast to take the fight out of the Blue Eagles.UAAP-84-Womens-Volleyball-AdU-vs-Ateneo-AdU-2-scaled Louie Romero brings back PVL headband vs Ateneo AdU News UAAP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

Romero finished with 15 excellent sets and 13 excellent digs in the confidence-boosting, 23-25, 25-19, 25-15, 25-12 win over the struggling Lady Eagles – their first against the Katipunan-based spikers since Season 75.

But it was not just Romero as Trisha Genesis, the player Adamson is looking at to carry the scoring load for this season, finally broke out of her slump and tallied a team-best 17 points to go along with 12 excellent receptions.

“Sobrang saya kasi ramdam namin yung pagod. Hindi madali itong season na ‘to saka two years kaming nabakante so sobrang saya na nakuha na namin yung rhythm namin saka dahil nandiyan na ulit si [Trisha] Genesis, babalik na ulit yung Adamson.”
