Alyssa Valdez, the captain of Creamline, thinks that the Cool Smashers would benefit immensely in the future from the presence of foreign teams at the following 2022 Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference on Saturday.
After helping Creamline defeat Army-Black mamba in straight sets, Valdez stated, “I feel like más marami kaming matututunan talaga. Mas magiging powerful pa yung team namin sa mga next na future games.”
Valdez also expressed her excitement for the upcoming matches between the Rebisco-supported team and KingWhale Taipei and Kobe Shinwa Women’s University (Japan) in the Invitationals semifinals.
The current MVP of the Open Conference Finals claimed that this would be Creamline’s first encounter with overseas teams.
Valdez expressed his squad’s excitement, saying, “We’re extremely excited as a team and ayun. Siguro as a team din this is the first time na makakapag-laro kami versus foreign na teams eh.”
Because we lack experience, she said, we are eagerly anticipating the fact that “mas marami kaming matutunan” and “na makalaban sila.”
The Cool Smashers easily defeated the Lady Troopers 25-20, 25-22, 25-16 under the direction of the multiple-time PVL MVP. She scored 15 points, with 11 superb sets, 12 attacks, two aces, and a block.
Despite what appeared to be a strong performance from Valdez and Creamline. She stated that the team still needs to improve its sense of unity and reduce its unintentional mistakes.
The former import, who played for Taiwan’s Attack Line and Thailand’s 3BB Nakornnont, said. “As a team, we have to improve on many things too.
“More emphasis should be placed on teamwork and reducing mistakes. So yun yung mga kailangan naming i-adjust pa coming into the semifinals lalong lalo na syempre mas tight yung games and we have two international teams na makakalaban pa.”
