SETTING up plays has been a breeze for Michelle Cobb, surprisingly even after the departure of La Salle’s big-hitting Kim Dy and Majoy Baron.
The third-year setter is glad to have an offensive threat from all angles, crediting outside hitters Des Cheng and May Luna, middle blockers Aduke Ogunsanya and Norielle Ipac and even rookie opposite spiker Jolina Dela Cruz for making her job much easier.
“Even though we don’t have a go-to guy, everyone is becoming a go-to guy,” said Cobb, who made 25 excellent sets in their straight-sets win over Adamson for a 2-0 win-loss record in the UAAP women’s volleyball tournament.
“Madali lang mag-distribute, so may tiwala ako sa kanila na sure na mapapatay nila ‘yung ball,” Cobb said.
The 5-foot-3 Cobb got decent marks from 11-time UAAP champion coach Ramil De Jesus from the two wins.
“Mag eighty na siya sa susunod,” said the La Salle coach on Cobb, when asked to grade Cobb.
Cobb vowed to do even better as the Lady Spikers continue their bid for a fourth straight title.
“Every game naman po, same lang preparation namin so sabi ni coach palagi na wag kami mawawala kasi malayo pa ang season,” Cobb said. “Third game palang ng season (against NU on Wednesday) so marami pa kaming parang pag-ayusin.” Lance Agcaoili
