UTILITY hitter-turned-setter Jasmin Nabor admitted her confidence level with her new role for the National University team has risen along with the rousing start of the Lady Bulldogs in the Shakey's V-League.
In fact, the former opposite hitter for the Philippine team in the Asian Women U-19 Volleyball Championship has fully embraced her transformation that she's fixed on being NU's setter.
“Ready na po, nageenjoy na po ako,” Nabor said. “Maging setter na po. Parang kung babalik po ako as spiker, sayang ‘yung lahat ng mga napaghirapan ko.”
“Mas kailangan po ako ng team dito (as setter),” she added.
After being with the national team for almost a month, Nabor admitted she was still rusty in the Bulldogs first V-League Collegiate outing against San Sebastian last week.
“Malaking adjustment kasi almost one month, palo lang ako ng palo ganoon. Tapos hindi po ako nakakafocus dun as a setter, tapos ‘yung first game namin isang beses lang po ako nakapagtraining as a setter,” Nabor said.
“Konti na lang, nasasanay na ulit,” she assured.
Now back with her school team, Nabor shared that she's motivated further to excel as a setter since NU is on a perfect 2-0 start in its bid to defend its V-League Collegiate Conference crown.
“Finocus po ako mag-set ng mag-set. Kasi nga po nag-aadjust pa po ako kasi feeling ko spiker pa din ako. Ngayon po, hindi na po ako naiilang kasi nag-focus ako na kailangan ako ng teammates ko,” Nabor said.
