Some may have raised their eyebrows when Sta. Lucia, a squad in desperate need of a steady libero, tapped the services of outside hitter Juliet Catinding and converted her into their defensive ace for the 2019 PSL Grand Prix. But now, three games into the Lady Realtors\u2019 campaign, the UE Lady Warrior is proving to be a genius pick for head coach Babes Castillo. After three double-double performances, Catindig is now averaging an impressive 15.33 excellent digs per game and 12.33 excellent receptions per outing, which, for someone who is transitioning to a new role, is pretty impressive. \u201cHappy po ako pero at the same time may pressure. First time ko po ito na maglaro sa PSL Grand Prix. Siyempre po hindi madaling depensahan lalo na \u2018yung mga import,\u201d said the soft-spoken spiker. \u201cGood thing na lang po is may suporta ako from my coaches and my teammates na i-boost nila \u2018yung confidence ko.\u201d With two more years of eligibility in the UAAP for Catindig, one would wonder what she\u2019s doing in the PSL while the rest of the Lady Warriors are slugging it out in the UAAP Season 81 Women\u2019s Volleyball tournament. Without flinching, she admitted it has something to do with her academic standing. \u201c\u2018Yung sa acads ko po may bagsak po. Medyo nawala po sa focus and nagkaroon lang din po ng konting issue internally kaya hindi na rin po naayos,\u201d she shared. Lucky for Catindig, she chanced upon Sta. Lucia\u2019s announcements through their social media accounts regarding their open tryouts which eventually landed her a spot in the club team\u2019s lineup. \u201cNakita ko po kasi sa Twitter ng Sta. Lucia \u2018yung post nila about the tryouts. Kaya po nagpaalam po ako sa coach namin sa UE kung pwede akong sumali and good thing is pinayagan naman po niya ako,\u201d said Catindig. \u201cNaka-mindset po ako sa tryout pa lang na libero na talaga ako. Hindi ako umasa na mag spiker ako sa PSL,\u201d she added. But have fans seen the last of Catindig wearing the red and white for the Recto crew? Or will she be a solid option to replace the graduating Kath Arado for Season 82? \u201cAfter this year po babalik ako sa UE. Inaayos ko na po,\u201d she clarified. The Realtors currently have a 1-2 win-loss standing and they are set to battle Cignal HD Saturday 2PM at the Strike Gym in Bacoor.
