2021 AVC Women's Championship

PWNVT’s confidence at a high heading to Korea game, shares Galanza

Jema Galanza has been a steady force for Creamline in the PVL.

And when the club was tapped to represent the country in the 2022 PNVF AVC Cup for Women, it was no different for the all-around outside hitter.

After keeping the Nationals in the first two matches against Vietnam and China despite the defeats, the Adamson University product finally broke through, along with the side, with a win.

Galanza fired 21 points on 20 attacks and one block, including the Philippines’ last three points in the fourth set, to carry the hosts to a 25-19, 25-22, 20-25, 25-14 victory over Iran — their first of this edition of the Cup.

The national team had to crawl back in the third set as Iran jumped into an early advantage. Nonetheless, Galanza and company pulled through with a fight back, despite coming up short against the West Asians.2022-AVC-Cup-Iran-vs-Philippines-Jema-Galanza PWNVT's confidence at a high heading to Korea game, shares Galanza 2021 AVC Women's Championship News Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Lagi naman kaming sinasabihan ni coach na lahat naman tinraining namin. Kailangan lang naming i-apply sa court, babawiin lang namin,” the 2019 PVL Open Conference MVP shared.

“Kumbaga, huwag lang kaming magmadali sa mga points na kailangan naming gawin. Yung mga pagkakamali naman namin nung third set.”

This confidence stemmed from the fact that this team is first and foremost a single professional club team, and it was established from the start, and what was shown in its three matches so far, is that chemistry is its biggest advantage.

Galanza said, “Siguro ganun na lang yung connection namin talaga. Alam namin sa bawat isa na kaya naming bumawi.”

With a win on their side finally, the Nationals will do everything to end their pool play on a great note.

“Every day naman, hindi lang sa Korea, kundi sa lahat. Pinaka-importante po sa lahat is confidence po.”
