    ‘MS. EVERYTHING’ Cha Cruz-Behag’s return to competitive volleyball after a four-year hiatus looked seamless.

    It wasn't.

    In an emotional post in Instagram on Monday, the former F2 Logistics captain shared a behind-the-scenes look into her three-month comeback preparations, which was marked by bruises and tears along the way.


    “This first month back was one of the most difficult volleyball experiences to date. Totoo nga yung simula yung pinakamahirap,” Cruz-Behag said as she showed snaps of her arms covered with bruises.


    “I knew I had to start from somewhere kahit negative pa yan. I just didn't want to miss the opportunity to play again,” she added.

    Cruz-Behag was the Cargo Movers’ skipper for three years from 2016, leading F2 Logistics to three championships in the now-defunct Philippine SuperLiga.

    The former De La Salle star took a break indefinitely from volleyball after marrying her longtime partner Ray Behag and starting a family of her own. The couple welcomed their firstborn Leon Sol in 2019.

    “All I knew was that I wasn't going to quit and that I was going to trust the process and the system. This time around, I had a much bigger motivation to play, my family,” she shared.

    Nearly four years after giving birth, the two-time UAAP Finals MVP returned to the taraflex and started training with the Cargo Movers by January. After a month, she debuted in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference.
