Dy, peaking La Salle not taking any opponents lightly
De La Salle is finally at the apex of the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament with a 7-2 record after a three-set win over University of the Philippines on Wednesday.
Despite their league best record which catapulted them past National U, the Lady Archers are not taking any opponent lightly with still five games left in their eliminations schedule.
“When we’re inside the court, we treat each team equally. Nobody is stronger than one, and no one is weaker than another,” said Dy in Filipino after the 25-15, 25-19, 25-19 win. “We prepare for each team in the same way.”
La Salle is the league’s hottest team with three-game winning streak, but what makes it more impressive is that the Lady Spikers have only dropped a set in that run.
But although the Lady Spikers are the closest to clinch a Final Four spot, Dy said they’re not looking that far ahead and are taking their chances one match at a time.
“We don’t actually think about that right now, we’re taking it one step at a time, so game per game,” said Dy who had 14 points against the Lady Maroons. “We will continue to improve on what we need to be better on, and from there we will fight onwards.”
