JOVIELYN Prado is determined to help Tacloban to a solid finish in the PVL Open after an early exit from the Reinforced Conference.
“Ako po personally ‘yung goal ko is maiangat ‘yung ranking ng team namin kasi nung nakaraan nasa huli kami,” she said. Tacloban went winless in the second phase of the Reinforced Conference.
As skipper, Prado is also eager to help the younger players prepare for their collegiate leagues.
Backed by Heather Guino-o of Far Eastern University, Prado and the Fighting Warays have scored two wins in three outings, including a straight-sets victory over Adamson University.
“Siguro sa sarili ko ‘yun na lang din ‘yung ibibigay ko kasi sa akin din po sila umaasa na ako po yung team captain nila kumbaga pag nawala ako, wala pa silang titignan na maglilead,” said Prado, who graduated from Arellano last year after winning three NCAA titles and the finals MVP award in Season 92.
“Syempre dito po kami kukuha ng experience na dadalhin sa kanya kanyang schools. Kaya mas magmamature po kami dito kasi mas magagaling yung mga kalaban namin kaysa sa amin,” Prado said.
“Nagtutulungan lang po kami kung may isang nawawala, tutulungan namin siya ichicheer up namin ganun,” she said. “‘Yung mga tinetraining namin, nagagawa po namin, naaapply namin kaya ayun kailangan lang namin ituloy tuloy.” Lance Agcaoili
