Sagaynon Reyann Cañete has opted to continue her collegiate volleyball career with the San Beda University Lady Red Spikers after years of staying with the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags.

The Negrense volleybelle personally confirmed her decision to transfer to the Lady Red Spikers as she envisions that her volleyball career will grow further under the guidance of the coaches there.

“I see myself growing as a volleyball player at the Lady Red Spikers,” Cañete said in an interview with Watchmen Daily Journal yesterday.

“Also, it is hard to pass on an opportunity in a prestigious school like San Beda,” she said.

“I will bring to San Beda my experience and help the team to be more mature inside and outside the court. We are a young and talented team. Hopefully, I can help the team to improve and to be a contender, especially in the NCAA,” she added.

Cañete, a former standout of Eusebio Lopez Memorial Integrated School, was a Best Opposite Spiker awardee during the NCAA Season 97 women’s volleyball tournament while playing for the Lady Stags.

She will join the growing list of Western Visayas-based recruits in Lady Red Spikers in Sophie Cagalawan, Gwen Bañas, Amber Lily Biong, Jachryl Casugod, Erich Belo Bula, and Gina Espina.

Aside from Cañete, two former University of the East Lady Red Warriors volleybelles in Erin Feliz Navarro and Jessica Umali have also decided to continue their collegiate years with San Beda.

According to Navarro and Umali, they decided to transfer to the Lady Red Spikers as they wanted to explore their game further while also contributing to the growth of the San Beda team.

“I want to improve my volleyball skills further and I see that happening with San Beda,” Navarro said.

“I want to have a good relationship and memorable experiences with everyone, especially my teammates and the whole Bedan community,” she said.

“As a dedicated athlete, I am confident in my ability to bring a strong work ethic and positive attitude to the team. My goal is to contribute to the team’s success by pushing myself and my teammates to be the best we can be on and off the field,” Umali added./ASC, WDJ
