MANILA, Philippines—Lucille Almonte is flourishing in her new role as Adamson’s Liberation in the UAAP Season 84 Women’s Volleyball Tournament.

We know we lack passing. He’s good to go. We’re looking for ways.” If it will work for us, and we have a lot of talented spikers off the bench, said Giron in Filipino.

I open spiker in the first round

“I am happy (with my new role). Because I can see where else I can contribute to the team,” Almonte said in Filipino. “It’s not difficult for me to adjust because receiving and (floor) defense is not new to me, even when I was an open spiker in the first round.”
