Ateneo Lady Eagles setter Deanna Wong says she is focused on regaining her old form

After sustaining a shin injury that forced her to skip UAAP Season 82, Deanna Wong has yet to decide on her future with the Ateneo Lady Eagles. 

The ace setter is focused on regaining her old form before deciding to commit in her fifth and final playing year.

“As of now, I really have no idea, like it’s not on my mind yet. What I think about is going back to my playing form,” said Wong in a mix of Filipino and English on the online show Volleyball DNA.

The Season 80 Best Setter, though, has not ruled out the possibility of returning for a last flight in Katipunan.

“If time will [permit], I will play, but there are also other reasons to consider before deciding. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make the right decision.”

The 22-year-old playmaker sustained the injury during the Lady Eagles’ championship run in Season 81. 

“It was a really tough season because I was playing with an injury…but I’m still grateful because I was able to finish, I was able to be a champion,” Wong said.

Lady Eagles who were given a one-year eligibility extension by the UAAP Board also remain uncertain.

Among these players are spikers Kat Tolentino and Jho Maraguinot, who were supposed to play their fifth and final year for Ateneo in Season 82.

Season 82 was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. – Jillian Velasco/
