HEATHER Guino-o is going all-out for their last three elimination round matches to push Far Eastern University into the Final Four of UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament.
Guino-o and fellow seniors Jerrili Malabanan and Kyle Negrito have three matches left in the UAAP eliminations and they are vowing to give their all to make a Final Four run and bring back FEU to the Finals for the second straight year.
“Siyempre po sobrang binubuhos ko po talaga kasi para din po sa aming tatlong seniors,” Guino-o said.
FEU is currently tied at third place with University of Santo tomas with identical 7-4 win-loss cards. The Lady Tams have to win their last three games to secure a Final Four berth facing National University this Wednesday, UST on Sunday and De La Salle on April 28.
That’s why Guino-o is going all-out.
“Ito na yung last na laban na namin ito para sa UAAP. So kailangan po naming i-all out na,” she said
The graduating outside hitter stepped up when it mattered most for the Lady Tams putting up a career-high 22 points laced with 22 digs and 12 excellent receptions to score a pivotal 25-21, 19-25, 25-23, 25-22 win over UP last Saturday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“Masaya kasi hindi ko po naiisip na ganoon pala ang kaya ko,” Guino-o said. “Parang noong una nagda-doubt ako, pero once pala na maniwala ako sa kakayahan ko kaya ko pala.”
But Guino-o is still willing to give more in their last three games to extend the Final season for them three graduating Lady Tamaraws.
“Siyempre po itinatak ko sa isip ko na mas kailangan ko pang mag-double effort,” Guino-o said. “Nandoon din po na naniniwala ako sa mga teammates ko na mas aangat sila kasi alam nilang kailangan namin ang isa’t isa.”
