Playing her first game of the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament, Bern Flora served up an ace in her very first possession.
“Gulat din ako dun. Chamba lang yun,” she said after Adamson crushed UP, 25-9, 27-25, 25-20, for their second win in three outings.
Flora missed the Lady Falcons’ first two outings due to chickenpox and the ensuing infection that sidelined her for more than a month.
But the wing spiker made the most out of her comeback by helping the San Marcelino crew fend off a late comeback attempt by the Lady Maroons.
“Sobrang saya nakabalik na ako,” she told Akari Sports, talking about the gruelling stretch when she had to watch her teammates from afar due to her sickness.
“Minsan na-dodown na ako,” she added. “Lagi naman nila akong in-uupdate at chini-cheer na kaya kong makabalik agad.”
