College of St. Benilde has once again proven its prowess in the NCAA Season 98 Women’s Volleyball tournament by clinching their back-to-back championship crown on Friday.
Lady Blazer ace Mycah Go may not have been able to play due to an injury, but she shared that she was proud of her team’s accomplishment and was happy to have been a part of their journey.
Go, the Season 97 MVP, expressed her trust in her team, despite not being able to play alongside them. She shared that the Lady Blazers had gone through many hardships and trials, but she was confident in her team’s ability to defend their throne in the grand old league.
“I think para sa akin din naman sobrang hirap eh,” Go said.
“Parang iniisip nila na mahirap dahil wala ako kasi ‘yung naging responsibility ko siguro nahawakan nila ngayon.”
Although Go was not playing on the court, she remained an essential part of the team, serving as one of the coaching staff. She monitored the team’s progress and lent a hand whenever necessary. She believed that her role as a coach was vital to the team’s success.
“Siyempre, doesn’t mean na na-injured ako wala na ako, out na ako agad,” Go answered if her coaching role was a huge boost for the team.
“So habang nagre-recover ako lagi pa rin kami naguusap sa team, pumupunta pa rin ako sa training. So, I think malaking bagay naman na ‘yun eh.
“So siyempre, ‘yung ibang mga bago sa amin, mga rookie sa amin kinakausap rin ako kung ano puwede gawin, ‘yung nagawa ko dati before sa loob ng court, so ayun tulong-tulong pa rin naman kami,” Go added
Go’s injury happened during a tune-up game in January, but she is expected to play in season 99. However, she will not be playing in off-season games as she focuses on her recovery from the ACL injury to prevent further complications.
“I need to take care of myself and prepare for the next season,” she explained.
As for the upcoming season, Go promised a better performance on the taraflex. She shared that she had learned many things during her time as a coach and would apply them to her game. She is determined to help her team defend their crown once again and lead them to another championship.
