Kim Fajardo set to return for final season with La Salle - source

MANILA, Philippines – Kim Fajardo, the DLSU Lady Spikers’ star setter, is set to return for her fifth and final year of playing eligibility in the upcoming UAAP Season 79 women’s volleyball tournament beginning next year, a well-placed source informed Rappler. 

The news was first reported in October by volleyball website Volleyverse, although Fajardo told 11 days later that she had yet to decide.

However, the source, who requested for anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the topic, said that barring any drastic change, Fajardo is now set to join a Lady Spikers team looking to become back-to-back champions.

The return of Fajardo will be crucial for a La Salle team which lost key players Mika Reyes and Ara Galang. The 23-year-old from Batangas will also be gunning for her third Best Setter award in Season 79.

Fajardo is currently suiting up for the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix. –
