F2 Logistics hopes to have Myla Pablo back in PVL semis
MANILA, Philippines—After suffering from cramps in F2 Logistics’ previous game four days ago, Myla Pablo sat out the Cargo Movers’ win over Army on Saturday to avoid any major injuries.
F2 Logistics coach Regine Diego said the team is taking Pablo’s status “day by day.”
“For now, we’re just resting her. She still has checkups but she can walk and run as you can see. [We’re] very hopeful that she can come back for the semis,” said Diego after the Cargo Movers’ four-set victory over Army-Black Mamba.
Despite the initial cramps diagnosis in F2 Logistics’ win over Choco Mucho on Tuesday, the team remains wary of Pablo’s status.
Diego said that Pablo’s “cramps” may have underlying issues so it would be beneficial for her to get more medical tests before returning.
“Her cramps may have underlying issues. Before, her knees were hurting so we need to check everything so we’re sure that she’ll safely return. Our priority is health more than winning a game. If we win, as long as nobody gets injured, it’s a bigger win for us.”
Ivy Lacsina filled in for Pablo, shifting from middle blocker to open hitter.
Lacsina stepped up with nine points, helping the Cargo Movers book their first semis appearance in the PVL.
“I’m okay that I’m playing this [position] again because ever since, when I started in the UAAP, I already played this so I didn’t have a completely hard time. I had difficulties in passing but I was helped by my sisters and our coaches,” Lacsina said in Filipino.
“I’m here in this position again and I know I’ll surpass it because I already faced this before.”
