Cabral will go back to her game of high level

AGUADILLA.- After eight months of inactivity, Milagros Cabral returned to the volleyball courts with the Ponce Lions to recapture the game level that converted her in one of the main weapons of the Dominican Republic National Team.

The universal player suffered the tear of the right Achilles tendon, an injury that required a surgery performed in Russia and maintained her out of action for the lapse of eight months.

“I was out of the Dominican Team for one year during the recovering and rehabilitation process after the surgery. Eight months later I am in Puerto Rico playing for the Lions. The league has gained a lot this year, because most of the teams are competitive and that creates the growing of the tournament,” said Cabral to Primera Hora after the match last Monday against the Aguadilla Divas.

In fact, Cabral will use her participation in the national women tournament as additional preparation ahead of her reintegration to the Dominican side after finishing her compromise with the Lions.

“I think that with time and hard work, I will go back to my previous level. I don’t think I have lost part of my jump or my abilities because I was working slow and healing. Now after the full work, I can get back to my complete level,” said the player.

Besides serving as corner attacker, Rafael “Epique” Olazagasti, coach of the Lions, has used Cabral as middle-blocker, a position that doesn’t bother her at all.

“It is a position that I have played before, because I can play either in the four as well as in the two or three. Epique has used me in the middle because I have been blocking well and that is why I have been playing a lot in the middle,” Cabral explained.
