Shiela Kiseo says FEU extra motivated to end season strong after Ebon exit


Shiela Kiseo, who just recently assumed captaincy for Far Eastern University, bared that the departure of their seniors motivated them further to finish the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament strong, Tuesday.UAAP-84-Womens-Volleyball-FEU-vs-UE-KARY-TRUZ-LYCHA-EBON-1-scaled Shiela Kiseo says FEU extra motivated to end season strong after Ebon exit FEU News UAAP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Yung kela ate Lycha [Ebon] naman po, siguro dun po nalungkot din po kami kasi naging leader po sila namin,” said Kiseo after the Lady Tamaraws’ three-set loss to Adamson University on Tuesday.

In a shocking turn of events, Ebon, along with Martha Mora, left the team in the middle of the UAAP season to ‘focus on their future careers.’

This came as a huge blow to an FEU side that already lost a valuable contributor in Nikka Medina due to an ACL tear.UAAP-Season-84-Womens-Volleyball-NU-vs-FEU-NIK-MEDINA-scaled Shiela Kiseo says FEU extra motivated to end season strong after Ebon exit FEU News UAAP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Pero naging motivation din po siya sa amin na kailangan namin,” said Kiseo.

“Gusto rin namin na na maipakita din po namin na… maging proud din po sila sa amin kahit wala na sila sa amin,” she added.

Indeed, it has been a tough campaign for the Lady Tamaraws, who are set to miss the Final Four for the first time since 2014. FEU was officially booted out of the playoff race with a 1-9 slate.

But despite that, Kiseo is looking to embrace her new role, vowing to rally the team for a strong finish this season.

“Pag ano ni coach na sinabi niya na ako po ‘yung naging captain ball, nung una po medyo na ano, parang na-feel ko nandun din ‘yung gusto ko din tumulong sa team,” Kiseo said.

“Kailangan ko din trabahuhin yung binigay ni coach na responsibility sa akin which is ‘yun din ‘yung kailangan namin trabahuhin pa ‘yung bawat isang responsibility namin para sa team po.”
