Mary Joy Dacoron announced that she will use her final playing year with the Adamson Lady Falcons without a ripple.

The 5’11” middle blocker confirmed the news via CuriousCat, a Q&A social network that can be used with a Twitter account. Here’s an image of her response about suiting up for Adamson one last year.

The smiling emoji can mean several things. But when asked with another question, her response cemented the claim.

The Cebuana is the fourth best-scoring middle blocker in UAAP Season 80 behind Majoy Baron, Bea De Leon, and Risa Sato. She then joined the Banko Perlas Lady Spikers and became part of bronze medal squads in both the PVL Reinforced and Open Conferences last year.

Dacoron will join an Adamson squad that finished winless in the 2018 PVL Open Conference. However, the Lady Falcons took home the bronze in last year’s Collegiate Conference and bagged four of the eight individual awards. Christine Joy Soyud, MJ Igao, and Toni Rose Ponce won Best Opposite Spiker, Best Setter, and Best Libero, respectively, while Bernadette Flora was named 2nd Best Outside Spiker.

The preparations of the San Marcelino-based squad for UAAP Season 81 is in full swing, as shown in this short video. Former Lady Falcons Jema Galanza and Fenela Risha Emnas joined the current squad in their training.
