MANILA--After coming up with a podium finish in 2016 Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix, F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus is set to focus his attention on the upcoming University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 79 women’s volleyball tournament this February.

De Jesus said that it will be hard to adjust because Galang and Reyes' shoes are really difficult to fill in.

Together with his young Lady Spikers, de Jesus would be marching to the collegiate battle carrying the massive pressure of defending their title.

Battle-tested Kim Dy, Majoy Baron and Dawn Macandili are expected to rise as new leaders while veteran playmaker Kim Fajardo has yet to formally announce her comeback.

On the other hand, Ara Galang, Mika Reyes, Cyd Demecillo, Mika Esperanza and Carol Cerveza will no longer suit up after maximizing their playing years. With that, de Jesus is quite worried on who will replace these talents, especially Galang and Reyes, two players who played a major role in their title conquest last year.
