    KIM Fajardo was mighty glad to win a title with the La Salle Lady Spikers playing a balanced offense, thanking her teammates for helping ease the pressure of being a graduating skipper.

    The Lady Spikers gave Fajardo a fitting send-off with Kim Kianna Dy, Tin Tiamzon, and finals MVP Desiree Cheng playing a match to remember to claim back-to-back titles.

    Fajardo scored four of her six points on aces as the Lady Archers pulled off a five-set win to sweep the Lady Eagles in their best-of-three finals series.

    “Sobrang sarap,” said Fajardo. “Hindi ko alam kung paano i-express.”

    Last year, Fajardo had an option to leave La Salle but decided to stay on for her fifth and final year for the Lady Spikers.

    It was worth it, said Fajardo, especially that she didn’t felt the need to carry the team.

    “Sobrang saya ko talaga kasi hindi ko naramdaman na ako ‘yung pinakamatanda sa amin. Hindi ko naramdaman na ako mag-isa na ako lang lumalaban. Never nila pinaramdam sa akin ‘yun,” Fajardo said.

    After claiming the title, La Salle honored Fajardo with their traditional archer pose, before former teammates Mika Reyes and Aby Marano spoke with her for congratulatory messages.

    More than the championships, Fajardo said she will miss her teammates along the way.

    “Mamimiss ko talaga sila. Hindi nakikita ng lahat kung paano itong mga batang ‘to. Hindi nila nakikita sa TV kung paano sila sa labas ng court. Mamimiss ko sila,” said Fajardo.
