Team USTe

No, we are not students of UST nor their volleyball players. This was just a concept of the organizers of the recent volleyball league that we have joined in. Each team will represent a certain name of a university/college. It's like NCAA, UAAP or V-League. This was really fun and there were a total of 8 teams who joined. The teams were: UP, Miriam College, San Beda College, San Sebastian College, Collegio de San Juan de Letran, Ateneo De Manila, De La Salle University and University of Santo Thomas. 

Our team was undefeated because our boys are really good. But when the championship came, we were defeated by the De La Salle University team. They were the champions and we only bagged the first place. It was really ironic for us 'coz we were a strong team. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the game and I was able to meet new people. That's life in every sport. Sometimes we win, and sometimes we lose. "Bilog and bola." But it doesn't really matter for me as long as we are enjoying it. 

Our team! There were 8 players including the one who took this picture. LOL This picture was taken during our first game. My friend and I didn't have the uniform yet since we had to alter it 'coz it was too big for us.

Here's how I look when I was wearing my uniform. LOL

You see, volleyball is really my addiction. If you are a reader of my blog, you might already read a lot of blog posts that contain volleyball topics. I am really a sports lover and will always be for the rest of my life. =)

Though there are ups and downs of joining a group sports and I've learned a lot from it like 1.)Unity with the team - this is a team sports so we had to work together. 2.)Patience -there are times that we are not able to play that long inside the court that sometimes we only play for one set. It's not always that we're able to deliver good quality of game so don't hate yourself for that. Be patient with bully opponents or audience - just ignore them. Be patient with bias linesmen - that happened to us. This sport needs a lot of patience even with your teammates. 3.) Learn to trust your teammates - just believe in what your teammates can do besides, everyone commits mistakes inside the court. 4.) Don't underestimate your opponents and even your teammates.  5.) Don't be greedy with the ball ("wag maging buwakaw sa bola") - as I've said, we should learn to trust our teammates so we should let them do their part and we shouldn't snatch the ball from them. Sometimes, greediness is one of the factors why a team in volleyball loses. 6.) Communicate well with the team and be open to them. 7.) Be a good leader - this applies to the captain ball. He/she should lead his/her team well and should be a responsible leader for them.

Oh! Sorry for making this post long. There are a lot of lesson you can learn in every sports and some of them are those I've mentioned above. How about you? Do you have any favorite sports?
