BIÑAN, Laguna—National team outside hitter Alyssa Valdez said national team’s time in the AVC Asian senior Women’s Volleyball Championship has been of valuable help as it prepares for 2017 Southeast Asian Games in Malaysia.

The Philippines finished at eighth place after three straight losses in in the Asian tournament includinga 25-20, 25-16, 21-25, 21-25, 15-3 setback to Kazakhstan Thursday but Valdez knows they’ve garnered enough experience to help them in Kuala Lumpur.

“This was a long tournament and we all know each other [better] because of it,” said Valdez in Filipino as she finished with 11 points in the loss to the Kazakhs.

“We all have one goal and we’ll all kill ourselves to achieve that goal and bring glory to the country.”

The Kuala Lumpur Games would be Valdez’ second after she competed in the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore.

She said they’d have to come out stronger if they hope to step to the podium in Malaysia.

“We have to prepare harder now and we have to have a better on-court chemistry than what he had here,” said Valdez. “We have to see all the little things so we’ll have better movement once we play.”
