UST Junior Spikers enter the Finals
Last Thursday, November 17, 2016, the UST Junior Tiger Spikers won over the UE Junior Spikers in the semifinals of the UAAP 79 boys’ volleyball tournament at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion. The UST BVT made the time constructive making a quick win over UE with a 25-17, 25-15, 25-20 win.
“Kung tutuusin, mahirap talaga mag-adjust sa court na ‘to. Despite that, we tried our best naman na ma-fulfill at matapos yung game ng maayos,” said Jhun Lorenz Señoron who chalked up 12 points for UST. Jaron Requinton also added nine markers which were one of the factors in the team’s win. UST will fight for the title against the Nazareth School of National University in a best-of-three series on November 25, 4 p.m. at the Adamson Gym.
Below is an exclusive interview from Jhun Lorenz Señoron:
Q: How was the game for you?
A: Una sa lahat, nahirapan ako, nahirapan kami. Hindi lang ako kasi kung tutuusin mahirap mag-adjust talaga sa court na ‘to. Pero, we tried our best naman na sana ma-fulfill at matapos namin yung game ng maayos. Saka natulungan namin ang isa’t isa kasi gusto namin manalo as a team.
Q: Who inspired you na maglaro ng volleyball?
A: Lahat! Lahat ng sumusoporta sa akin. Lahat ng tanong nanunuod dito. Lahat ng friends ko, family ko saka yung mga ka-team mate ko na mahal na mahal ko talaga.
Q: Ilang scores ang nagain mo?
A: Ay, ako kasi naglalaro lang ako di ko binibilang kung ilan eh. Mas gusto ko kasing nagf-focus ako sa ginagawa ko kaysa sa nagbibilang eh.
Q: So, anong goal niyo for this year’s UAAP?
A: Kasi lang next stage na papasukin namin is yung championship na, game 1 at game 2. Sana manalo kami and sana mad magpakita yung skills namin.
Q: What should we expect in the following games?
A: Sa team namin, nothing to expect kasi hindi naman lahat ng bagay di magiging maganda. We’ll just try our best!
