Rizza Cruz reunites with Louie Romero at Farm Fresh

There will be an Adamson University reunion at Farm Fresh.

Rizza Cruz has signed with the Foxies, joining her playmaker Louie Romero starting in the third conference of the Premier Volleyball League later this month.

Cruz and Romero have been together since their days at Kings Montessori.

“Sobrang swerte ko po kasi hindi biro ang maghanap ng setter na isang tinginan niyo lang alam niyo na ano’ng gagawin, and meron na po ako nun kay Louie (Romero) since high school,” the middle blocker.

“Kaya rin po naging mas magaan ng konti itong transition to pro kasi nandyan siya at alam kong hindi niya ako pababayaan.”

Though she was still eligible to play in the UAAP, Cruz decided to turn pro, and according to her, this decision has a lot to do with her realizations about life during the pandemic.

“Ang pamilya ko po naging very supportive dito sa pangarap ko na maglaro ng volleyball simula bata pa ako. Eh noon naman po wala pang professional league kaya sapat na sa kanila na basta makapag-aral ako. Kaya ngayon po na nagkaroon ng chance to give back to them, I grabbed it na,” she said.

“Nung nangyari po ang pandemic, na-realize ko na maiksi ang buhay. Kaya hanggang nandyan pa sila, bubuhusan ko na sila ng pagmamahal at suporta,” she continued.

With this move, Cruz will be reuniting with fellow former Lady Falcons in Ckyle Tagsip, Kate Santiago, and Trisha Tubu.

“Forever po akong grateful sa mga tao at mga institusyon na tumulong sa akin along the way. Ngayon po, kasama na ang Farm Fresh. Dahil sa kanila po, nagiging trabaho ko na ang aking passion para sa paglalaro ng volleyball,” she concluded.
