Trisha Genesis displayed an unrelenting spirit when the Adamson University staggered in the opening set following an early scoring outburst from the Ateneo Lady Eagles last Sunday.
The sophomore spiker carried the scoring cudgels with aplomb, helping the Lady Falcons recover from a flat-footed start en route to their fourth straight win. It also punched Adamson’s ticket to the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference.
“Hangga’t hindi pa tumutuntong ng twenty-five points, hindi pa po napapag-desisyunan kung sino yung panalo,” said Genesis.
“Hindi po dapat kami tumigil, at laban lang nang laban. Sabi lang namin, walang bibitaw kasi kung gusto namin manalo, dapat gumawa kami ng paraan.”
For this, Genesis earned the Sports Vision PVL Collegiate Conference Player of the Week.
During that game, the native of Sta. Rosa, Laguna fired a game-high 19 points built on 12 attacks and six service aces. She also picked up nine excellent receptions.
But beyond the desire to lift Adamson to the next round, Genesis also had another motivation coming into the marquee showdown.
“Ang saya po kasi last year nga po kahit anong laban, hindi kami nananalo [against Ateneo],” admitted Genesis, who had never won a match against Ateneo prior to Sunday’s clash.
“So ngayong year po talagang pukpok kung pukpok, laban kung laban. Tanggalin po sa isip na talo noong nakaraan kasi ang mahalaga po ay ngayon.”
Genesis bested teammate Louie Romero, UST’s Eya Laure, CSB’s Klarisa Abriam, San Beda’s Nieza Viray, and San Sebastian’s Reyann Cañete for the weekly award handed out by reporters from print and online covering the league.
