Regine Diego urges F2 to lick wounds and win bronze


F2 Logistics head coach Regine Diego wants the Cargo Movers to finish the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference on a high note after failing to overcome defending champion Creamline in the best-of-three semifinals last Tuesday.

Diego and F2 Logistics, who had already lost the series opener, fell prey to the back-to-back-seeking Cool Smashers in straight sets, 22-25, 23-25, 16-25, in Game Two of the semifinals at the SM Mall of Asia.

“It’s not over yet. It’s not over yet. I keep on saying that to the players. You don’t stop when you’re tired or when it hurts, you stop when you’re done,” Diego said after the loss.

The first-year head coach said that even though they missed out on their first-ever trip to the finals, it’s still important for the Cargo Movers to finish the tournament strong and gain momentum for the next conference.PVL-2023-Semis-F2-vs.-Creamline-Regine-Diego-3192 Regine Diego urges F2 to lick wounds and win bronze News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“For us, we’re just going to play our best. We want to achieve that because, in the last few games, we want to end on a good note. And you know, when you finish it with a win, it’s always a better way to end things,” Diego said.

Diego shared that the team was understandably down right after the loss, but she made sure to remind the Cargo Movers of their small victories in this conference that they would be able to take into their next forays.

For one, the former NU high school coach told the team that they still managed to reach their goal of making it to their first-ever semifinals in the PVL.

Aside from that, F2 Logistics was also able to end the tournament healthy which, according to her, is already a huge win for the entire team.

“Well, of course, they were sad because it was a loss. But I told them that we need to manage our emotions because we can’t always win, and our goal was to be in the top four,” Diego said.

“We’re here, we lost, but at the end of the day, we still won. It would be even better if we can win the next two games.”
