Lately, Jeziela and Nieza Viray of the San Beda Lady Red Spikers took the NCAA Season 91 Beach Volleyball Tournament by storm.
During the last day of eliminations at the sands of the Subic Bay Boardwalk Beach, the Viray twins were able to accomplish a 9-0 elimination round sweep after a 21-11, 21-19 mastery over the College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers. In addition, they were the only once able to defeat the defending champions San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags with a 10-21, 22-20, 15-13 win last Wednesday
“Comfortable dahil [pasok na kami] sa Finals, nakapasok na kami pero kailangan pa rin namin magpursigi,” Nieza Viray shared to Tiebreaker Times. “Wala po kaming pressure, basta laban lang po.”
Moreover, the twin’s strong bond proved to be their biggest asset whenever they play.
“Oo, sobra po, big factor talaga [ang bond namin as sisters,]” Nieza Viray added. “Hindi lang chemistry mayroon sa amin, physics na po (laughs).”
“Sabi po namin, wag tayo mag-aaway dito. Iyon ang puhunan natin dito, wag tayo mag-away, always smile lang.”
Likewise, her twin sister Jeziela shared the same sentiments when asked about their incredible feat.
She also added that their supporters pushed them to compete harder as the tournament went into its deeper stages
“Ang saya-saya po talaga, super super. As in ‘yung mga kasama namin doon sa crowd at ‘yung co-Bedans namin, supportive sila.”
Now, with San Beda sitting comfortably in the driver’s seat, they hope to display the same cohesion they had during their earlier outings in order for them to inch closer to glory. They shall face the winner of today’s stepladder semis match between Benilde and San Sebastian. The winner-takes-all championship match will take place at the sands of the Subic Park Hotel later at 12 noon.
“Basta igagalaw lang po namin, iyon naman po ang importante. May pressure din kami kasi first time namin [umabot dito],” Jeziela Viray ended
