You might have seen the last of Joy Dacoron in an Adamson jersey. Or not.
Minutes after helping end their UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball campaign with a big win, Dacoron was undecided whether to use her final year of eligibility or go pro.
The Cebuana, though, is not closing her doors on a return.
“Open naman ako,” she said. “Ang akin lang, tignan ko muna kung paano babalansehin yung mga bagay.”
In her senior year, Dacoron was the Lady Falcons’ most reliable middle blocker, supplying both offense and defense as the squad finished fifth with a 6-8 record.
Dacoron was the league’s fourth highest-scoring middle blocker, sitting just behind reigning MVP Majoy Baron and ahead of more heralded names in Maddie Madayag, Bea de Leon and Risa Sato.
That’s a far cry from seasons past, when the 5-foot-11 beanpole hardly saw any court time due to her inconsistency.
And now that she’s proven her worth, Dacoron is trying her luck next month when the Premiere Volleyball League kicks off.
“Ita-try ko muna sa PVL and gain experience,” she said. “Matagal pa naman yung next season. Tapos na Masters ko. Baka mag-Law ako. Di pa full yung decision ko pero I’m open naman.”
“I’m willing to render my full service and loyalty sa Adamson. After all, napa-graduate ako at yung kapatid ko. Sana may mababalikan pa ako na ganito na family.”
