    IT’S Myla Pablo’s third championship with Pocari Sweat but the feeling never gets old for the veteran spiker.

    The Lady Warriors continued their winning tradition by turning back BaliPure, 20-25, 25-17, 25-17, 25-19, in Game Three of the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference on Thursday.

    Pablo, who was part of the Pocari Sweat team that won the Open and Reinforced Conferences in last year’s V-League, said the third championship is the sweetest.

    “Siguro ngayon (ang pinakamasarap) kasi ang dami namin napagdaanan talaga,” said the Finals MVP.

    “‘Yung import namin na-injure, si Edina (Selimovic), and then ayun nga si Krystal (Rivers) late na nakapasok so for me (ito ang pinakamasarap) kasi kailangan ang mga locals mag-step up talaga. Ayun, worth it naman po ang training namin araw-araw,” she added.

    The team paraded an all-Filipino lineup due to lack of International Transfer Certificates (ITCs) of their imports Selimovic from Bosnia and Michelle Strizak from USA.

    The Lady Warriors started flat with back-to-back losses before they won six consecutive games with their imports on board.

    As Pocari Sweat was starting to get its rhythm, Selimovic sustained a torn hamstring on her right knee, while Pablo sat out two games due to back spasms.

    The Lady Warriors immediately tapped American opposite hitter Rivers but had to wait a while for clearance from the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB).

    Looking back, Pablo said she is proud of the team's resilience and sense of family.

    “Pinaghirapan talaga namin, simula quarterfinals, semis, nandito pa rin kami lumalaban pa rin kami,” she said.

    “Sa Pocari family po kasi kami, wala po kaming inggitan sa bawat isa,” she said.
