Since their days as the Philips Gold Lady Slammers, Pocari Sweat has tagged and treated Myla Pablo as a franchise cornerstone.
Alongside Pocari Sweat mainstays Michele Gumabao and Melissa Gohing, Pablo stuck with the team through thick and thin, through wins and losses, and a jump to another league.
Now, Pablo rejoices after anchoring the Lady Warriors to their second straight Shakey’s V-League championship.
Which is big because Pablo wasn’t seen as a winner coming out of her college career. Pablo skippered National University in her final season, the most hyped season for the Lady Bulldogs in program history. National University, unfortunately, suffered from intra-squad squabbles and fell out of the Final Four race after a promising start.
Now a Finals MVP and four-time SVL champion, Pablo has found a new home and group of people who put their full trust in her.
And Pablo gives them one of the best years of her volleyball career.
“Siyempre sobrang happy kasi lahat nang pagtiya-tiyaga namin nagbunga. Hindi basta-basta ‘yung pinagdaanan ng team lalo na noong simula.
“Lahat talaga nang nasa team nag-adjust – mula sa players hanggang sa coaches. Masasabi ko na mas matamis talaga ‘tong pangalawa,” the 23-year old open hitter said. “Malaking pasalamat ko sa Pocari, sa coach ko lalo kasi grabe ‘yung tiwala niya sa akin. Pinapabawi niya talaga ako. Sa NU naman, masaya pa rin ako sa kinalabasan ng career ko doon.”
“Sila (Pocari Management) ‘yung nagtiwala sa akin. Definitely, mag-iistay ako dito.”
