LSDC’s captain, Diego Aviles, shared with ABS-CBN that they used their loss the previous year as motivation for their number and win this year:
Naging motivation namin (yung nangyari last year) para mas makahanap kami ng bagong gawin to get the championship back. Naging inspiration namin ‘yung mga seniors na ga-graduate na and naging motivation siya para mas lalo kaming makaisip ng bagong elements na di pa nagagawa, something fresh.
[Last year’s loss became our motivation to find a way to get the championship back. Our seniors who are graduating also became our inspiration as well as our motivation to think of new elements that haven’t been done before, something fresh.]
