UAAP Season 80 Team Preview: Lady Batters
After finishing 6th last season, the Lady Batters are looking forward to a better showing this Season 80.
Losing captain Jen Gomez, first baseman Pat Belarmino, and shortstop Judy Macatangay to graduation, and with no rookies in the 13-women strong team, coach Alex Estipular will be betting on experience and captain Judie Ann Ramos assured that they will be ready for anything, and it all starts at training.
“Kulang kami sa consistency, in a way na hindi naming mapagsunod yung mga palo naming to advance the runner on base,” lamented Ramos about their problems last season which they focused on in training.
“That’s why this season, we trained really hard, we practiced our fake bunts-and-swings. May mga play din kami na mas tinutukan na hindi namin nagawa last year.”
With confidence in a veteran team and a more consistent batting lineup, the Lady Batters can only ask for support from the DLSU community as they try to make a new story, with the hopes of even dethroning the 7-peat defending champions, the Adamson Lady Falcons.
“Our goal is to be in the Final Four, and then the championship,” said the hopeful captain, “Come and see us on the field. Saksihan niyo po ang pagmamarka at pag gawa ng bagong istorya. ANIMO!”
