    PH spikers flaunt #B*Yag frontline with Baron-Madayag team-up

    Sep 25, 2019

    MADDIE Madayag had a great time teaming up with Majoy Baron in the women’s national volleyball pool’s Thailand buildup.

    Madayag and Baron, who used to be rivals in the UAAP playing for Ateneo and La Salle, respectively, were one of the highly-anticipated team-ups of the Philippine team.

    The two towering middle blockers drew attention when they saw action in the first leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix and the fans had a name for their tandem #B*yag, which sounds and means explicit but it was one of the silver linings in the country’s bronze medal finish.

    “B*yag,” said Madayag with a laughter during her return to Choco Mucho on Wednesday. “Pinag-usapan nga namin ni Majoy yun kasi may nag-issue yung mga fans na B*yag daw since UAAP pa. Sabi ko, ‘Majoy alam mo ba na tawag sa atin B*yag?’”

    Yun nga tawang-tawa kami. Wala lang inaasar na lang namin every day,” she added.

    On a serious note, the Choco Mucho middle blocker learned a lot of things and had fun with the F2 Logistics star, who won the Best Blocker in the 1st Leg of Asean Grand Prix, and her other teammates.

    “Mga mature talaga silang mag-isip. Pati mga teammates ko rin you can see na sini-set aside nila yung previous systems nila kasi iba-iba sila,” Madayag said.

      The 21-year-old spiker is also grateful with her first experience to represent the country from catching up in the training camp and seeing action in the inaugural tournament.

      “I was very lucky na ipinasok ako ni coach Shaq (Delos Santos) kasi nga bago pa rin ako sa sistema nya,” she said. “I’m just happy na nakapag-adjust naman ako ng maayos sa system niya.”

      Madayag is expected to return to action in the second leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix from October 4-6 in Sta. Rosa Laguna and she looks forward to gain more experience in representing the Philippines.

      “The experience was something else talaga kasi different eh. Internationally, malakas talaga ang mga players,” Madayag said. “Makikita mo na meron pang mas kaya, na pwede ko pala itong gawin.”
