Top 10 teenage volleyball talents

As volleyball becomes a fast growing sport in the Philippines, individual talents become more popular than ever. Despite the absence of some big names like Venus Bernal, Mary Jean Balse, and Rachel Anne Daquis, new talents emerge to take their place in the hearts of true fans. Here’s a list of the top teenage talents in volleyball today – players being under 20, and who have at least two or three years in the local spotlight. The future of volleyball is in good hands with these fine individuals.

Here are the Top Ten teenage volleyball talents:

Katty Kwan of Saint Benilde

  • 10. Katty Kwan
    V-league new comer College of Saint Benilde is relying heavily on young Katty Kwan for their offense. The V-league is a great avenue for her development, as NCAA volleyball also looks to improve its volleyball competition.
  • 9. Shaira Gonzalez
    With a slight controversy over her rookie of the year eligibility, Shaira started her freshman campaign with an even more prestigious prize: UAAP season 70 championship, to go along with the one she has in beach volleyball.
  • 8. Stephanie Mercado
    If you know your sports history, you know Steph has what it takes to be successful in athletics. Young, gifted and determined, she is one of the pillars of La Salle’s volleyball future.
  • 7. Lizlee Ann Gata
    The anchor of quite possibly the best floor defense in the country, Lizlee does her thing and helps keep Adamson in contention in every tournament they play in.
  • 6. Jacky Alarca
    Eligibility woes aside, she is a superb talent who would have won numerous awards had things not been what they were. A fearless frontline defender who has potential to be one of the best.

  • ….Once I got past my anger toward my mother, I began to excel in volleyball and modeling.

    Winners never quit and quitters never win.

    We practice every day, either doing team stuff or working out as an individual. In the offseason we work out with weights, just trying to get stronger.

    A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.

    We don’t have a World Series or a Super Bowl, so to be able to come home with a gold medal is amazing. I want to do it again in four more years.

    If winning isn’t everything, why do they keep score ?

    Practice is The effort that makes winning possible.

    Volleyball is the sport through which I am able to express my God-given talents of being an athlete. It is a sport which involves relating, pushing, and encouraging your teammates.

    Actions speak louder than coaches.

    Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed.

    Volleyball is my life, everything else is just details.

    My wife…boyfriend…husband…girlfriend OR volleyball? — When do we play?

    Sometimes, the best way you can find out about a player is what his fellow players have to say about him. An even better way to get a feel for a player is to see what he has to say about his fellow players.

    It’s not whether or not you win or lose, it’s whether or not I win or lose.

    A mere forty years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning. No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that’s what freedom is all about.

    It gives us a chance to be competitive in a friendly way.

    Carnivorous volleyball, win or be eaten.

    Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.

    You can’t win unless you learn how to lose.

    Sports do not build character. They reveal it.

    The setter, a hard working TALENTED volleyball player who receives NO GLORY!

    They are very athletic and skilled players.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite RETALIATION.

    Life’s TOUGH and it’s gonna get worse AFTER I BEAT YOU!

    You touch every other ball and, if you screw up, you only have one more person to back you up. You can’t go hide in the corner.

    It takes a lot of hard work and dedication just like any pro sport. Especially for beach volleyball you don’t have to be tall or as fast as other sports. You just have to have the skills.

    Title match game. Final Set. Down by two. Dig Deep.

    The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials

    You weak spikin’, no blockin’,net servin’,face diggin’,no passing, 15-0 losers.

    Anyone serious about playing indoor, you should play outdoor.

    Life is short, play hard

    All it takes is a little sand and lots of balls.

    Give it your all on the sprawl, Drop a pancake and keep it clean, Find the target, put ‘em on the hook then dish it up, flare and catch some air, Check the set, bring some heat and watch them bail!
