Agang delivers anew for DCNHS-A A +A
Friday, November 2, 2012
THE scene was quite familiar, only this time the celebration was intense.
Glenda Greg Agang was surrounded and hugged by her overjoyed teammates while the famous Queen rhapsody "We Are The Champions" reverberated inside the gym.
Sweating heavily, the 15-year-old Agang hugged her teammates tighter as if she wouldn't want to let them go. Tears of joy flowed and the crowd let out a thundering applause to these girls, the mighty spikers of the Davao City National High School (DCNHS).
Displaying yet another scintillating performance, Agang and her bunch of dynamic teammates led by Eden Faith Maturan, DCNGS added another one to their collection of championship trophies when they ruled the Mindanao leg of the Shakey's Girls Volleyball League 10th season at the University of Immaculate Conception (UIC) Bajada campus gym Sunday.
The DCNHS spikers were hardly challenged as they crushed Iligan City National High School (ICNHS) in straight sets, 25-17, 25-21, 25-20, to pocket the gold and earn the right to represent Mindanao in the Shakey's Girls Volleyball League National Finals in Manila this January.
Agang led the DCNHS offense once more in this triumphant campaign with her vaunted spiking skills that no one can seem to stop. She was all over the court and was inspiring her teammates no end from the elimination games up to the final match.
Her virtuoso performance also earned Agang best attacker award aside from being picked Most Valuable Player (MVP), a common prize since she started playing volleyball. Just days ago, Agandg was also hailed MVP when DCNHS won the gold medal for Unit I in the Davao City Athletic Association (DCAA) Meet.
DCNHS actually cornered most of the individual awards just like Iligan High, with Jarene Mae Salazar named the best digger and Soledad Torino picked best coach. Iligan's Kathleen Arado was adjudged best receiver, Jellie Tempiatura best setter and Alyssa Gayle Layug best blocker.
General Santos City National High School also won an individual award despite placing only fourth courtesy of Beverly Joy Ballista, who was named best server of the tournament.
Agang, the number one spiker of DCNHS is making the most of her remaining months in the team. She, along with Maturan, Salazar and Lorijean Trinidad will be graduating in March.
Manila-based schools like the National University (NU) and San Sebastian College (SSC) have signified their interest in getting Agang when she goes to college.
"As of now, I have not decided," Agang told Sun.Star Davao in the vernacular when asked what school she will prefer after her high school graduation.
She then went back to her teammates and they huddled at the center of the court. They held hands, formed a circle and started to dance around while the coaching staff and spectators cheered from the sidelines.
Agang is enjoying every moment of her remaining days as a DCNHS spiker. So are her teammates, who embraced their ace player time and again to show their appreciation.
