GRADUATING player Shaya Adorador wanted to make the most of her final playing year for University of the East in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament.
For someone who has never experienced how it was to be in the Final Four, Adorador admitted that her goal for the team is to reach at least fourth or fifth place.
But she knows that it’s better to let their game do the talking.
“Kailangang talaga naming ipakita pa game kung ano ang nabago sa team ng Lady Warriors. Mahirap na rin kasing magsalita kaya ipapakita na lang namin sa game,” she said.
While other graduating players aim for a championship, Adorador has a modest goal.
“Ayokong umalis ako sa team na iisa lang ang panalo,” she said. “Gusto ko siyempre umangat ang team hanggang sa makakaya pa iangat.”
Helping Adorador are skipper Roselle Baliton, Judith Abil, Seth Rodriguez and Kath Arado.
Head coach Francis Vicente also beefed up his roster getting players from his Team B. He added 5-foot-11 Isabelle Camama, 5-foot-11 Erika Lopez, 6-foot-2 Remcel Santos and Mia Manabat.
UE will face University of the Philippines on February 4 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
