Good news for RC Cola-Army:  It finally got its groove back.

Bad news: Jaja Santiago will be back in action for Foton.


Just when RC Cola-Army coach Kungfu Reyes felt they have turned the corner with a methodical straight-sets win over Cignal, the Lady Troopers run into the Tornadoes today in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at Philsports Complex.

“Jaja’s return would be such a big boost to Foton,” Reyes said of the Foton ace, who’s returning from a 12-day training in Japan with National University.  “So we have to prepare ourselves and be ready.”


But Reyes said they welcome the bigger challenge in the 3 p.m. match, and judging from their 25-13, 25-15, 25-10 disposal of Cignal last Tuesday, they are up to the task.

“That’s the Army team I used to know,”  said Reyes. “While I’m glad that we’re gaining back our groove, we still have to work hard because the next few games will be very crucial.”
