For the first time in nine years in the UAAP women’s volleyball tournament, the Adamson Lady Falcons are in the Final Four, reaching the semifinals of the ongoing Season 85.

They want to make their first semis appearance since Season 76 back in 2014 count.

“We have to work on our preparation when it comes to physical, mental, and proper execution,” said Best Setter award frontrunner Louie Romero on Sunday, April 30 following Adamson’s 25-22, 26-28, 25-15, 25-17 win over FEU.

Romero and the Lady Falcons finished third in the elimination round with a 10-4 slate, setting up a semifinals clash against the second seed, twice-to-beat and defending champs NU Lady Bulldogs.

Adamson and NU battle on Wednesday and so are the twice-to-beat and top seed La Salle and fourth seed UST at the start of the Final Four.

“We’re already here so I told them it’s now or never. Let’s not waste this opportunity. For me, it would be a good match on Wednesday because we’re a bit off in the second round so we need to play as a team and help each other,” said Romero.

Trisha Tubu, one of the major driving forces of this Adamson resurgence, echoed Romero’s sentiments.

“We’re already here and we worked hard for this so we might as well keep fighting to the best of our abilities,” said the prolific rookie.

“We need to focus on a one game at a time approach. When we win a set, we will try to get another one until we win the game and then we’ll try to beat them twice.”
