She is not called “Bionic Ilongga” for nothing.
Living up to her moniker, Jovelyn Gonzaga has had a busy week after playing three straight games in three different locations for two different leagues.
The 27-year old opposite hitter first suited up with Cignal against F2 Logistics for their out-of-town meeting in the Philippine Superliga (PSL) All Filipino Conference 2019 at the Cadiz City Arena in Cadiz City last Tuesday.
The Central Philippine University alum then flew back to Manila on Wednesday just in time to play for her mother team PacificTown Army during its semifinals affair against Creamline in the Premiere Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference 2019 held at FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan.
A day later, the 5-foot-7 lefty was back at the taraflex with the HD Spikers, this time at the Natalio G. Velez Sports and Cultural Center in Silay City against Generika Ayala.
Her efforts, though, all went for naught as both of her teams dropped their respective matches.
Gonzaga scored four points in two sets played as the HD Spikers bowed to the Cargo Movers in three sets.
She chipped in four points whilst heavily contributing in floor defense with 12 digs and 11 excellent receptions for the Lady Troopers, who lost the semis lead over the Cool Smashers.
Playing sparingly, Gonzaga was scoreless in their five-setter loss against the Lifesavers.
But while her numbers may not match the level of dedication she has shown for her teams, this was still a welcome development for Gonzaga, who has just returned to action after more than a year of recovery from ACL injury.
Currently the only player simultaneously seeing action in PSL and PVL, this could benefit Gonzaga as she tries to regain her old, lethal form that earned her multiple accolades and championships in the past.
Gonzaga is set to suit up with PacificTown Army later as they look to extend the best-of-three semis.
