RDJ glad to see F2 Logistics back playing, but remains wary of conditioning


It has been almost two years since F2 Logistics last played a game.

Back on March 3, 2020, the Cargo Movers were making their Philippine Superliga Grand Prix debut, soundly defeating PLDT.

The pandemic though struck, forcing the PSL to ultimately shut down.

But on Saturday afternoon, the wait was finally over for the Cargo Movers as they finally hit the court in Philippine National Volleyball Federation Champions League debut against the young California Precision Squad at the Aquamarine Sports Complex.

And team skipper Aby Maraño could not hide her joy after playing side by side with her sisters anew.

“Two years na hindi kami nakapaglaro together ang sarap sa feeling na nakapaglaro kami ulit as a team, as F2,” expressed Maraño.

“Ang sarap sa feeling na sila yung kasama ko kasi comfort zone for the longest time. Yung familiarity nandoon pero yung feeling na maglalaro ka kasama pamilya mo ang sarap talaga sa pakiramdam.”

F2 Logistics was one of the six teams from the PSL that transferred to the Premier Volleyball League earlier in the year.

The Cargo Movers was supposed to play in the PVL’s inaugural professional conference last July, however, the team was forced to back out at the last minute due to injuries.

“Ang laking adjustment kasi ngayon lang kami nakatungtong ng taraflex except for some of my players kasi galing sila sa Thailand at least doon nakalaro sila sa international,” bared F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus.

While some of its players in Kianna Dy, Majoy Baron, Tin Tiamzon, Kalei Mau, Iris Tolenada, Dawn Macandili, and Maraño had a bit of action after playing for the national team in the Asian Women’s Club Championship last October, the same cannot be said for the rest of the squad.

That is why for De Jesus, it’s going to be a war of attrition for them in this six-day tournament.

“Para sa akin kung sino mas maaga nag-prepare. Kung sino mas naging kondisyon makikita mo naman kung sino mas ahead in terms of condition.”

F2 Logistics will go up against Baguio tomorrow, Sunday at 1:30 PM.
