Iba ang ambience and level -- Espejo on playing in Japan

Marck Espejo is having the best time of his volleyball career playing for Oita Miyoshi in the Japan V. Premier League. Despite falling short in his first two outings, the Ateneo de Manila University product made his presence felt in the top tier league in one of Asia’s volleyball giants.  “Sobrang saya siyempre pero mahirap din, first international club league ko,” said Espejo in an interview coursed through Virtual Playground volleyball talent head Mark Salamat. The five-time UAAP Most Valuable Player and three-time UAAP champion welcomes the big challenge of playing against the best players and teams in Japan.   “Sobrang iba yung ambience and level nu’ng league if i-compare sa Philippines,” said Espejo, who was feted as the first-ever Philippine Sportswriters Association’s Mr. Volleyball. Espejo debuted with 16 points off 12 kills and four kill blocks in the Weisse Adler’s 15-25, 20-25, 19-25, to Toray Arrows last Saturday. Oita Miyoshi dropped its second game the following day to the Nagano Tridents, 25-21, 25-23, 25-21. Playing for a full season abroad, Espejo admitted that it takes a little time for him to fully adjust not only in the level of play but also with the culture. “Sa pag-adjust naman siyempre mahirap sa start pero kung gusto mo naman ginagawa mo makaka-adjust ka naman kaagad di ba?” he said. “Masaya and very approachable ang team.” Back in the Philippines, his former Ateneo head coach Oliver Almadro has nothing but praises to his protégé from Marikina.  “Dumating man sa kanya ‘to, we’re very proud of him. Goosebumps kami sa ginagawa niya,” he said. “Inspiration ng women’s team ko si Marck Espejo,” added Almadro, who is now calling the shot for the Lady Eagles. “We’re watching his highlights, we’re watching his videos.” “Marck you’re doing a good job and we’re proud of you.” Espejo and Oita Miyoshi will march into action on Saturday against the Toyota Gosei Trefuerza, on the same day sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat will make their debut in the women’s division for Ageo Medics and Toray Arrows, respectively.     ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Pacres out to prove her worth

Dimdim Pacres is out to prove that she’s still a vital cog for the University of Sto. Tomas. When Tacloban head coach Nes Pamilar asked Tigresses mentor Kungfu Reyes for the services of Pacres, the Cebuana native saw it as an opportunity to make up for her less than stellar performance in the last season of the UAAP.  In just two games with the Fighting Warays in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference, the opposite hitter has been showing her brilliance on offense averaging 19.5 points per outing. On Saturday, Pacres dropped 21 points including 18 from attacks in the Fighting Warays’ 18-25, 25-20, 25-22, 20-25, 15-9, win over Pocari Sweat-Air Force to snap a three-game losing slump to end the first round elimination.  “Malaking opportunity siya kasi doon ko lang ma-prove ulit ‘yung self ko kasi ang panget nga ng pinakita ko nu’ng (UAAP) season,” said Pacres, who joined Tacloban last week together with Jeannie Delos Reyes. The hitter was considered as one of UST’s top hitters heading into Season 80 together with Sisi Rondina and then rookie Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini especially with EJ Laure sitting out because of a shoulder injury after a great run in Season 79 and in pre-season tournaments. But Pacres admitted that she underperformed in the last UAAP tournament and this is a chance for her to bring back her dangerous form especially with newcomers vying for position in the Tigresses' lineup which include top rookie opposite hitter Eya Laure.     “Kailangan ko talaga i-prove sa kanila at ibalik ko ‘yung sarili ko kung paano ako maglaro sa loob,” said Pacres, who also played in the Philippine Superliga Invitational for Smart. Pacres is one of Pamilar’s replacements for Judith Abil and Seth Rodriguez, who were recalled by the University of the East. “Nakipag-tune up kami sa UST sakto naman na nakausap ko si coach Kungfu at Rev. Fr. (Jannel) Abogado. Nagpaalam ako kay Father so maganda naman ‘yung tanggap niya sabi niya, ‘sige kung kailangan mo na paglaruin mo na,’" said Pamilar. “Actually dalawa ‘yan ‘yung isa (Alina Bicar) naglalaro pa sa Unigames siguro pagbalik ng isa mas magiging buo kami.” Pacres debuted last Wednesday, scoring 18 points in a five-set loss to Ateneo-Motolite. “Kasi naubos ako,” she said of her last outing." Kakabalik ko lang kasi ng laro kasi ang tagal ko nakapahinga kasi simula sa PSL pa ko huling naglaro, sa ust training-training tapos tuneup, pahinga. So kakabalik ko lang talaga as in sa animan.” Against Pocari Sweat, Pacres pounded 18 kills and had three kill blocks including the intangibles on floor defense that helped Tacloban escape with the win. Now steadily jelling with her team, expect Pacres to be at the forefront of the Fighting Warays’ drive for a Final Four spot.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Madayag shows leadership, maturity in win

Graduating player Maddie Madayag felt that she needed to do something after Ateneo-Motolite went down 1-2 in their match against Tacloban Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. “Gising na Maddie,” she told herself. Snapping out of a slump, Madayag delivered the spark that the fueled the Lady Eagles’ impressive push in the closing stretch of the fifth frame to extend their winning run to three and move up to a share of the lead with a 25-18, 19-25, 11-25, 25-17, 15-11, come-from-behind win over the Fighting Warays. “Medyo lutang kanina,” admitted Madayag, who scored 12 points and was a monster at the net with five kill blocks. Ateneo-Motolite moved to a share of the lead with Creamline and BanKo with 5-1 win-loss slate. Madayag scored three points in the fifth set including a quick attack that gave the Lady Eagles a 9-5 lead. The Ateneo-Motolite senior also played a huge role in the Lady Eagles’ fightback after Tacloban closed the gap at 9-8, hitting a down the line spike that fueled a 4-1 burst for a 13-9 advantage. “’Yun nga kailangan ko ipakita sa mga bata kasi kung ano ‘yung makikita nila yun din gagawin nila,” she said. “Kasi nga seniors, so kung ano makikita nila sa mga ate even sa training so parang if I show them the fighting spirit yun din makukuha din nila.” “’Yun kasi para ma-adapt nila na, ‘I need to fight, I really need to fight sa game,’” Madayag added. With Madayag leading the way in the crucial junction of the match, Ateneo-Motolite escaped with its second straight five-setter game and third win in a duel that went the full distance.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Ateneo-Motolite back in win column

Ateneo-Motolite took the fight out of Iriga-Navy with a devastating rally in the second set before sustaining its momentum in the third to complete a bounce back 25-19, 29-27, 25-14, win Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Down by 12 points in the second set, the Lady Eagles once again clung to their heartstrong mantra to fuel an impressive fight back that highlighted Ateneo-Motolite’s third win in four games tied with Creamline and Pocari-Air Force. The Lady Eagles rebounded from a straight sets loss to BanKo last week by downing a revamped but still winless Lady Oragons. “Unang-una I just told them that you have to have pride and be responsible on everything you do. So I guess ‘yun ang dapat na number one na matutunan ng mga bata. Most of them know how to play but sometimes they forget how to win so I just told them to be responsible,” said Atenei-Motolite coach Oliver Almadro. “I guess ‘yung responsibility inako talaga nila and nag-make way para maka recover kami pero unfortunately, 24-20, inabutan pa rin kami. Pero siguro they just refused to lose na kasi nandoon na eh,” he added. Kat Tolentino finished with 14 points off 10 attacks, three kill blocks and an ace for the Lady Eagles. Middles Maddie Madayag and Bea De Leon had seven each while Ponggay Gaston posted eight markers for Ateneo-Motolite, which received 31 free points off Iriga-Navy’s errors. After taking the opening set, Ateneo-Motolite stared at a 17-5 deficit in the second frame. The Lady Oragons were still up, 20-12, before the Lady Eagles unleashed a 12-0 barrage to move at set point, 24-20. Iriga-Navy came back to life and moved at set point, 25-24. Ateneo-Motolite answered with two straight points before the Lady Oragons forced another deuce.   Tolentino gave the Lady Eagles back the lead but Hezzymie Acuna was quick to counter for knot the score at 27. Ponggay Gaston pushed Ateneo-Motolite on its third set point advantage before Nene Bautista committed an attack error to surrender the frame to the Lady Eagles.     With momentum on their side, Ateneo-Motolite created an early separation and never looked back in the third. The Lady Oragons, who inserted three Army players in Bautista, Joanne Bunag and libero Tin Agno to beef up their lineup, absorbed their sixth straight defeat in as many outings. Bunag had 11 points while Grazielle Bombita and Divine Eguia scored eight each for Iriga-Navy.     ---           Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Tiamzon proves worth for Perlas Spikers

BanKo is enjoying its best start so far in the Premier Volleyball League. Unbeaten in five outings, the Perlas Spikers are on the right track in their quest to capture the elusive title in the second edition of the league’s Open Conference. One player who stood out in BanKo’s romp is veteran hitter Nicole Tiamzon. She may not be as celebrated as other stars but she’s has been consistently proving her worth with her intensity, energy and efficiency. The former University of the Philippines star is averaging 15 points per game as a vital cog on offense, alongside Dzi Gervacio. “Sabi nga ni coach (Dong Dela Cruz) every time kahit sino yung hugutin mo sa bench nakakapag-contribute naman,” said Tiamzon. “So ‘pag binigyan ka ng task, 'pag binigyan ka ng opportunity makapaglaro gawin mo yung part mo, hindi ka man makapatay sa opensa bawi ka sa depensa,” she added. On Wednesday, Tiamzon dropped 20 points in the Perlas Spikers’ 25-21, 23-25, 29-27, 25-18, victory over Tacloban. Tiamzon unleashed 15 attacks, three aces and a pair of kill blocks for BanKo. But Tiamzon was quick to downplay her role in the team, giving credit to her teammates for adhering to their system. “Everyone can contribute, I mean kahit open, or mapa-quick,” she said. “’Yun nga babalik lang din ako doon na everyone can contribute naman.” Tiamzon and the Perlas Spikers will get their toughest test next week when they take on star-studded Creamline. “One week kami walang game, siguro tuloy tuloy lang kami ng training and kailangan lang namin ayusin yung mga kailangan namin ayusin talaga,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

The Future of UST Beach Volleyball Blove Barbon and Jaron Requinton

University of Santo Tomas fielded a super senior-rookie tandem both in the women’s and men’s divisions of the UAAP Season 81 Beach Volleyball Tournament. That decision led to two championships, two MVPs, and two Rookies of the Year. Newbie Blove Barbon partnered up with the graduating Sisi Rondina, who played her fifth and final year on the sands. The rookie was nothing but honored to have partnered up with arguably the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All-Time) of Philippine beach volleyball in her first year playing the sport. She expressed that she was up to the challenge of teaming up with a player as intense as Rondina – an athlete who expects every teammate to go as hard as her. “Tinake ko lang po sya as a motivation kasi yun po yung way ni Ate Si na parang [gumaling] po yung sarili natin. ‘Di naman lahat ng naka-partner ni Ate Si, tumagal sa kanya. Pero para po sa akin, yun po yung ginawa kong motivation para lumaban ng lumaban,” she said after being awarded the Season 81 Rookie of the Year. The bubbly yet shy girl from Bukidnon showed immense improvement from Day 1 to the Finals. Seven game days after, her initial careless errors in the eliminations transformed to mature and smart ball placing. Barbon can’t help but feel regretful that this was her first and last time to play with Rondina. If she were to choose, she would partner with her over and over again. “Syempre, sino ba namang hindi gusto maging ka-partner si Ate Sisi. Diba? Nakita naman natin yung laro niya, di basta basta, siya po yung [pinakamagaling] sa beach volley,” she said with a giddy smile. “Halo halong saya po saka lungkot kasi yun nga po yun na yung last playing year ni Ate Si so next year iba na po makakapartner ko,” she said as she reflected on helping Rondina get the good exit she wanted. As for Rondina, she expressed confidence on leaving UST’s beach volleyball program, an arena she loved so much, to her young yet promising Padawan. “Si Babylove naman sinasabi ko sa kaniya na for her to get these awards, ang naging sangkap sa mga ganito is hard work. Commit kung saan ka naka-commit, wag kang masilaw sa pagiging sikat,” said Rondina. “May potential talaga siya. Sana madala niya 'yung attitude ko towards the game and towards training,” added the four-time MVP. Barbon is shy and still not accustomed to the attention one receives after a championship and a Rookie of the Year award. When reporters got a hold of her, she even joked around asking if someone else can substitute for her. “Pwede bang sub? Sub?” she quipped. With Rondina graduating, Barbon is left with the responsibility of preserving the elite status of UST in beach volleyball. When asked about it, Barbon has this to say. “Sobrang bigat po kasi lahat po kasi baguhan eh. Wala na pong senior na magdadala sa amin. Pero try po namin kung ano yung ginagawa ni Ate Si ngayon,” she said. “Gagawin namin para sa school,” the rookie said. Saying that she will do everything for UST, a sentiment Rondina has always preached, just goes to show that aside from volleyball smarts, she also picked up a rhetoric of her Ate. As for the men’s division, it was Jaron Requinton who had the honor of learning from veteran Krung Arbasto. Just like the women’s, the super senior-rookie tandem brought UST another gold. Requinton’s court presence is beyond his years. For most of the season, opponents always avoid letting the much more experienced Arbasto get the kill. With that, the spiking burden has been mostly on the young Requinton but the rookie was up to the challenge. He held a solid account of himself drilling down balls and blocking attacks as if this was not his first time in the UAAP. To make things more entertaining, he paired his volleyball skills with spunky antics on the sands. This is why no one was surprised when his name was called as the Season 81 Rookie of the Year. “Ito po siguro yung araw na di ko malilimutan as rookie kasi kahit natalo po kami sa eliminations ng FEU, natalo naman po namin sila sa championships. Goal ko po yun. Super salamat po talaga,” said Requinton. In contrast to Barbon’s timidity, Requinton has a confident aura around him. Whether he is playing on the sands or talking to reporters, he always seems to show no hint of intimidation. In his first rivalry game during the eliminations against National University, the lone rookie on the court joined the veterans in the tongue wagging and the arm flexing. Requinton showed all season long that he may be young but he is the real deal. “Siguro po yung hugot ko lang po [para sa confidence ko] ay sa hard training po namin, sa mga pinagdaanan po namin, sa struggles, sa away-bati,” he explained. In the end, just like Barbon, he was able to roll out the red carpet for Arbasto as he exited UAAP beach volleyball.  “Sobrang saya po kasi graduating po si Kuya Krung tapos nabigyan ko po siya ng magandang exit sa beach volley po,” Requinton expressed. Aside from bringing the trophy back to Espana, the rookie is also now responsible of continuing the steady stride of UST’s beach volleyball program. Arbasto expressed full confidence on his apprentice. “Si Jaron, matibay siya. May dedication talaga sya sa beach volley na buong puso naglalaro. Di bumibitaw sa kahit ano mang laban,” said Arbasto who was hailed as the Season 81 MVP. “Kahit na pinapagalitan ko yan, wala, tiyaga pa rin siya,” he added. When asked about the passing of the torch, Requinton embraces the responsibility with open arms. “Ireready ko po sarili ko kasi ayoko po magulat so ready lang po, kasi marami naman po kami. Di ko rin po alam mangyayari sa akin,” he said. This is the inevitable progression of college sports. When great players graduate, programs scramble trying to look for someone to replace them. But as for UST, they can breathe easily knowing that their beach volleyball program is now in the good and promising hands of Barbon and Requinton......»»

PVL: Panaga getting back into old form

Pocari Sweat-Air Force’s Jeanette Panaga is slowly getting into the same form that won her three straight middle blocker citations. The former College of St. Benilde standout made her presence felt as the Lady Warriors collected their third straight win over Adamson University-Akari, 25-23, 25-22, 25-16, Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City. Panaga wreaked havoc at the net as she and Del Palomata scored five kill blocks each for the Lady Warriors. Both finished with nine points each. Head coach Jasper Jimenez was all praises for Panaga, who led CSB to its breakthrough NCAA crown in 2016.       “Panaga is best blocker talaga. Alam natin yan, may titulo na yan si Jeannette,” said Jimenez of Panaga, who won the PVL Season 1 Reinforced Conference 2nd Best Middle Blocker, last year’s Open Conference 1st Best Middle Blocker and last Reinforced Conference’s 1st Best Middle Blocker.    Panaga averaged 8.6 points in Pocari Sweat’s last three games that helped the squad recover from an opening day setback against Ateneo-Motolite. “Siguro si Coach Jasper sobrang tiwala lang din sa akin, then every game din naman nagma-mindset ako na kailangan as a middle blocker kailangan every game may maipakita ako sa blocking,” said Panaga. With her coach showing confidence and trust in her, Panaga vowed to repay it with giving her A-game every match. “Sa tiwala at kumpiyansa niya sa akin ‘yun siguro yung nakakapag-boost ng morale ko na everyday gagawin ko yung best ko para maipakita sa kanila kung sino ba talaga ako,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Alessandrini drops 31 despite shoulder pain

University of Sto. Tomas hitter Milena Alessandrini played her best game so far in a Tigresses uniform. The sophomore was all over that stat sheet in the Tigresses’ 25-20, 27-29, 13-25, 25-19, 17-15, win over Adamson University in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference battle for third. Alessandrini registered a personal-best 31 points on 24 kills, six kill blocks and an ace to lead UST’s offense. The Fil-Italian did it all while nursing a lingering shoulder injury. “Masakit pa rin ng konti siyempre sumusumpong-sumpong pa rin pero nato-tolerate naman niya, kaya okay lang,” said Alessandrini’s Tita Cora, who served as a translator for the spiker who is still struggling with English and Filipino.   The Tigress suffered a right shoulder injury during UST’s campaign in UAAP Season 80 that forced her to miss the squad’s last four games in the elimination round. Alessandrini did return to action during that season but struggled in form as the Tigresses bombed out in the Final Four race. Months into her recovery, Alessandrini slowly regained her form and played a vital role on offense together with rookie Eya Laure for UST.    “Very happy siya nagpapasalamat siya sa kanyang mga coaches na na-reach niya ‘yan (career-high) so ngayon nakaka-adjust adjust siya,” said Tita Cora. “‘Yun lang very happy siya, satisfied naman siya sa naging laro niya.” Aside from playing great on offense in the Tigresses’ revenge win over their elimination round tormentor, 6-foot-2 Alessandrini also churned up impressive numbers on floor defense. She had 13 digs and 11 excellent receptions for UST. With the bronze medal within reach, expect Alessandrini to once again lead the charge of the Tigresses on Wednesday in Game 2.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

FEU started out flat before finding its rhythm to turn back the Tigresses for the second straight time in their back-to-back weekend clash. “Oo slow start sila masyado kasing nag-iingat sa first set so sabi ko ‘wag masyado mag-ingat, basta play your game, focus sa kalaban and ‘wag sa error,” said FEU coach George Pascua.   “Kaya sabi ko nga kailangan ang mga beterano ko ‘yung experience nila kailangan i-apply nila ngayong game kasi ‘yun ang pinaka importante, do-or-die game. Na achieve naman namin (ang goal namin),” he added. Eya Laure finished with 15 points while Caitlyn Viray had 11 for UST, which was haunted by 33 errors.
