TRISHA Genesis is proud to see the young Adamson squad rise to the top in the PVL Collegiate Conference, capping the campaign with a sweet sweep of highly-touted University of Sto. Tomas.
A seldom-used hitter in her rookie year, Genesis came up huge in her second stint in the tournament featuring NCAA and UAAP teams, earning MVP honors following a straight-sets win over the Tigresses in the second match of the best-of-three series.
“Gusto ko lang naman talaga yung title tsaka mapatunayan namin na kahit panay rookies sa loob hindi dapat minamaliit kasi lahat po kami naghihirap sa training,” said Genesis.
Genesis said she was determined to help lift Adamson to the top after settling for third-place finish last year following a sweep of the eliminations.
“Lagi namin ineexample yung nangyari samin last year, arangkada nung elimination tapos nawalan ng gas nung semis. So para sa akin at sa iba pang natira, sana wag na maulit,” said the prized-recruit from Laguna.
The Conference Best Outside Spiker said the training under consultant Tai Bundit and interim coach Lerma Giron made the difference
“Sobra kasi naming pinaghahandaan every training, yung mga pinapagawa ng coaches kasi inisip namin kung ano yung ginagawa namin sa training yun yung lalabas sa game,” Genesis said.
Genesis and the Lady Falcons hope to sustain the fine play in UAAP action. The past PVL collegiate champions, National University and UP, were not able to translate their preseason success in the UAAP tournament.
