Molde, Lady Maroons, put off-court frustrations at bay in time for games
University of the Philippines hitter Isa Molde said Saturday their off-court issues have no space when they come inside the four lines of the volleyball mat of the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.
The Lady Maroons have been in the middle of the public’s curiosity for the past fortnight when head coach Jerry Yee flip flopped on his decision to resign from his post.
“This is where our maturity should come in because we should be able to handle these types of situations,” said Molde in Filipino after their victory over the Power Smashers 25-17, 21-25, 23-25, 25-19, 15-11, At Filoil Flying V Centre.
“When we step inside the court we won’t bring our problems off of it.”
Yee, back in July 15, said he would leave UP but upon talking with school officials he decided to stay.
This air of uncertainty hovered over the Lady Maroons and when Yee said he’ll be back, the team felt, Molde said, relieved because of the development.
“Of course that lifted our morale because we didn’t know what exactly was happening with coach and we were caught off guard that he would be resigning,” said Molde.
