In another rebuilding phase for the San Marcelino squad, the Lady Falcons are set to unveil their new system in the 2019 Collegiate Conference of the Premier Volleyball League starting August 15, 2019.
“Pag sinabi mo na rookies syempre baguhan talaga sa systema at pressure ng college volleyball. Pero sinabi ko sa mga bata na magtiwala lang at hindi dapat matakot kasi nandito kami (coaching staff) para mag-guide,” said head coach Rogelio “Onyok” Getigan.
With eagerness and assurance, he is excited for what the girls can bring to the table to start his first official year. “Sobrang dami ng options ngayon para maging starting six. Lahat sila ay deserving at may kanya-kanyang talento na tinatago na araw-araw ay nailalabas nila sa training,” he added.
Coach Onyok also expects his seniors Ceasa Pinar, MJ Igao, and Chiara Permentilla to step up and lead the freshmen. “Sila ang mga nauna at exposed na sa UAAP, dapat ma-guide nila ang mga bata kasi nagdaan din sila diyan at nilu-look up sila ng mga bata,” he ended.
