Bea Pascual-Ranada Recalls Coach Roger Pushing Her to Take the Lead


Before Alyssa Valdez, Bea Pascual led the way for the Lady Eagles.

With five rookies and 5 seniors, middle Bea Pascual, along with Kara Acevedo and libero Steph Gabriel retained their spots in Coach Roger Gorayeb’s UAAP Season 71 roster.

Gorayeb had in his hands a huge task of rebuilding the Lady Eagles’ volleyball program. And he put his trust in to his lineup to start the Ateneo Fab 5. This is the moment that forever left a mark on Pascual-Ranada.

Gorayeb was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
