Naiara Díez led to Gernika in the ascent phase, where after winning all matches amounted to Women's League.
Then Naiara Díez talks about his season and its renewal:
Now with a few months since the Up, How do you rate last season of Gernika in LF2?
It was an unforgettable season! From the outset we knew that teamwork would be key to have a chance to go to the ascent phase, and it was. We went an incredible regular season remaining leaders. Arrivals and the ascent phase, we would enjoy, play our game being solid in defense (a fixed feature teams Mario) and looking for the best option in attack, is the recipe for today're in Women's League . We arrived very well physically, and preparation work was hard, but it paid off.
I think as a player you can not ask more of a season ... PERFECT!
And your season personally?
I enjoyed a comeback as a player as ever and enjoying the basket. I have to thank Mario for his confidence, his work and his persistence is primarily responsible for that I've felt that way.
I have to say that I had a fancy computer, and if I made a season so it's thanks to them.
To put the icing on the cake, play another ascent phase was a prize, which came after playing with UNB Obenasa, and that bug and that environment to see the full bounds makes it worth so much work and effort, if above the win ... It's amazing!
What led you to Gernika renew another season?
As I said before, Gernika has given me the confidence I needed, I felt very much embedded in the club and the town, so after last season, a chance to play again in Women's League and over, is with Gernika (where I am at home ...) had no doubt say ... YES!
What has changed Naiara Díez since its debut in Women's League in 2005?
Many years ago and that, I still remember the butterflies in my stomach when Pedro Martinez, then coach Filter Mann said, "Naiara change". Each passing season you realize you gain in experience, maturity, watching match situations that did not see before, in control nerves, polishing your strengths as in my case can be shot ... On the other hand, in making minimizing your flaws go ... in that I think has changed since the debut Naiara Díez.
Although there are things that I maintain which are illusion, team spirit, the will to improve and above all the desire to work to continue to grow every day.
It will be your eighth season playing in Women's League, will be important you experience a new Club in the category?
The Club will be new in the category, but it is a club that has his feet on the ground, works very well and very serious about every step so continue doing what made us get here. My experience in the league will be important because I've been lucky enough to play several seasons, the hardness that has the women's league, because every game is a final and you have to give up, but like my experience will be key every little detail and every contribution of each and every one of us.
What do you expect next season?
The season will be tough, and we have to go all out every game. There will be a team of stars, therefore we have to work together to achieve the goal, you will achieve permanency, and from there we'll see where we place leaves the competition.
From what I have no doubt is the support that we have from our fans, and the team will leave the skin, because the characteristics of Gernika (the could see in the ascent phase), will be the same : Work, a lot of defense and look for the best option in attack. Hopefully these are the ingredients for next season continue to see Gernika in Women's League.
