Ilongga blocker to join Letran in NCAA volleyball


Another Ilongga talent will bring exciting presence in Manila as Iloilo City-native Trisha Dequilla commits to play for the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Lady Knights in NCAA women’s seniors volleyball.

The Ilongga middle blocker was given an opportunity by the Lady Knights after previously playing in one-day leagues and local tournaments in Iloilo City.

The 5-foot-8 Dequilla said she's happy to play in Manila and represent Iloilo. The former player of Jigs Gallo also extended her gratitude to the latter for molding her to be one of the best blockers of the team.

Being a late bloomer in volleyball, Dequilla only learned playing the sport during her eighth grade under the guidance of Gallo at Iloilo City Sports Academy. She represented La Paz National High School and starred the team with numerous volleyball championships in local leagues in the region and was also named as Best Middle Blocker several times.

"I will try my 100 percent best to play in Manila and NCAA. It was a dream come true and I will make this worth it," she added.IMT Sports
