MANILA, Philippines – University of the Philippines (UP) seniors Tots Carlos and Isa Molde almost sat out their final playing year in UAAP women’s volleyball, but changed their minds for the love of the team.

The veteran spikers, both core players in UP’s frontline, were given a taste of commercial league action with Motolite in the 2019 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.

Just as they thought they were ready to leave the Fighting Maroons, they reconsidered after seeing the potential of several up-and-coming players and feeling the need to guide them.

With Kenyan head coach Godfrey Okumu still calling the shots for UP, both Molde and Carlos aim to make the most out of their final year as they try to tow the Maroons to a breakthrough Final Four stint. –
