PVL: Cagande making a name for herself in PVL debut

BaliPure-National University may be the youngest team in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference with its core composed of high school standouts but the Water Defenders are already making their presence felt and could give other established squads a run for their money. After falling short in their debut, BaliPure went on a roll, winning their next three matches to climb to a share of the lead with Creamline and PayMaya. American import Janisa Johnson is scoring consistently since she checked in for BaliPure in their second match while young libero Jennifer Nierva is holding the fort on floor defense. But the recent success of the Water Defenders could also be attributed to the steady game and quick adjustments of setter Joyme Cagande. The incoming Lady Bulldog has been lording over the setting department with an average of 9.1 excellent set per frame.     Known for her superb playmaking for the four-peat UAAP high school champion Nazareth School of NU, Cagande continues to dazzle even in the import-laden commercial league. The reigning UAAP high school Best Setter delivered her best performance yet with 54 excellent sets Wednesday in BaliPure’s 25-22, 25-22, 22-25, 32-30, win over BanKo at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.    Cagande welcomes the challenge of setting up plays to imports Johnson and Alexis Matthews, who are grizzled veterans in international play.      “Challenging siya kasi especially may imports. Iba kasi yung speed ng import, iba yung height ng import so kailangan talaga nandoon ang dedication mo para makuha ang eksaktong set for them,” said Cagande, daughter of a Philippine Star senior photographer Joven. Cagande is particularly comfortable playing with Johnson, making their tandem one of the most dangerous setter-hitter partnerships in the tournament. “Actually po kay Ate Janisa sobrang walang pressure kasi nandoon lang ang support niya lagi,” she said. “Always kapag ang set ko mali nandoon lagi ang feedback niya po kaya hindi gaanong mahirap makipag-work together with her.” Johnson in her previous interview said that she likes her role as mentor and ‘mother’ for the young BaliPure players. Cagande surely is learning a lot from the hitter, who is just coming off two big tournaments in France.  “‘Yung mga adjustments po sa mga mistakes (ang tinuturo niya). Sinasabi niya na OK lang mag-commit ng mistakes basta yung ibibigay nyong solution kaagad nandoon,” Cagande said of one of the things she learned from Johnson. With a 3-1 win-loss record the Water Defenders are in the thick of the battle for the outright semis seats. Expect Cagande to be one of the BaliPure players leading the way.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Water Defenders snatch second straight win

BaliPure-National University survived an end game scare by gritty Tacloban before closing out its second straight win, 25-22, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum.   American import Janisa Johnson paced the Water Defenders, who improved their record to 2-1 tied with Creamline, with 27 points off 22 attacks and five kill blocks. American reinforcement Alexis Mattthews had 23 markers anchored on 19 kills, three kill blocks and an ace for BaliPure, which dodged a fourth set collapse after building an early 8-1 lead. Youthful setter Joyme Cagande tallied 41 excellent sets to help the Water Defenders pummel Tacloban with 56 attack points. The Fighting Warays slowly chipped away their early deficit in the fourth frame with Shola Alvarez hitting back-to-back kills to close the gap, 23-22. Matthews smashed a hit to put BaliPure-NU at match point before Johnson hammered the match-clinching down the line hit.   “I think everyone's getting their chemistry na. If I'm gonna sum it up to one word, I think that's chemistry,” said BaliPure coach Babes Castillo. “We still have to work on our resistance and how we can sustain ourselves inside the court and our quick thinking.” The Fighting Warays dropped to 2-2 slate. Thai import Hyapha Amporn finished with 22 points while Alvarez and Jovielyn Prado had 11 and nine markers, respectively, for Tacloban.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: PayMaya downs Pocari Sweat-Air Force, wins second straight

PayMaya made quick work of debuting defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force, 25-20, 25-19, 25-22, on Saturday for a hold of the solo lead in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the People’s Gym in Tuguegarao.   The High Flyers took advantage of the Lady Warriors’ error-filled first outing inside the sweltering packed venue to claim their second win in as many outings. American import Tess Rountree waxed-hot with 18 points to pace PayMaya. Jerrili Malabanan scored nine markers while American reinforcement Shelby Sullivan had eight for the High Flyers, who played its first of back-to-back games. PayMaya will take on Creamline on Sunday in the same venue. “Maganda 'yung ginalaw ng team. Kumpara doon sa first game namin, mas kaunti 'yung mistakes, 'yung errors,” said PayMaya coach Roger Gorayeb, who had the chance to shuffle his lineup. “'Yung imports naman very determined lang talaga kasi alam din nila na they could play better than last time tapos defending champions nga 'yung kalaban namin.”      Aiko Urdas had five points while Celine Domingo scored three with her last two coming off back-to-back hits that sealed the victory for the High Flyers. Jasmine Nabor tallied 20 excellent sets while Grethcel Soltones saw action in the second set as a reliever and was scoreless for PayMaya. It was a terrible first match for the Lady Warriors. Pocari Sweat-Air Force gave away 32 points off errors with Myla Pablo serving as the only Lady Warrior in double figures with 12 points. Import Madeline Palmer and Jeanette Panaga finished with nine each while Amele Love was limited to only six markers for Pocari Sweat-Air Force.   ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Import wants more from Iriga teammates after win over BaliPure

  For Macy Ubben, getting the win on her first match with Iriga-Navy is good. But finding out that there's room for improvement is a lot better. The native of Ackley, Iowa, unloaded 26 points to power Iriga-Navy past BaliPure-NU, 25-23, 25-23, 22-25, 25-19, Wednesday night in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at FilOil Flying V Centre.

PVL: Valdez, Creamline begin Reinforced Conference campaign

Star hitter Alyssa Valdez begins her quest to end a three-year title drought when the Creamline Cool Smashers open their campaign in the 2nd Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference against newcomer Petro Gazz Angels at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Sunday. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA and via livestream. Valdez has her eyes on delivering the first-ever title for the beefed up Cool Smashers and to capture her first crown since helping PLDT win the V-League Reinforced Conference title back in 2015. “Oo nga eh (medyo matagal na) pero excited na ako for this conference,” said Valdez. As part of their build up to bag the coveted crown, Creamline tapped the services of former De La Salle University stars and decorated veterans Michelle Gumabao and libero Mel Gohing. Back as Creamline import is Kuttika Kaewpin of Thailand with new partner in solid middle blocker Serbian Nikolina Asceric. Also seeing action for the Cool Smashers are setter Jia Morado, former BaliPure player Risa Sato, Jema Galanza, Pau Soriano and Coleen Bravo, making Creamline as one of the teams to beat in this tournament. “Mas mataas ang pressure kasi we’re on our second year na rin and mas maraming kinuha na iba pang magagaling na players,” Valdez said. “Siguro ang pressure for us is to really give a good fight more than getting the championship kasi if you give good fight naman against the other teams, hopefully, makaabot kami sa dulo.” But the Cool Smashers are sure to find the Angels a tough opening day opponent. Petro Gazz of head coach Jerry Yee is out to spoil Creamline’s party with former DLSU star Paneng Mercado leading the way. Backing her up are Wensh Tiu, Chie Saet, Djanel Cheng, two-time champion Cai Nepomuceno, who was recruited from Pocari Sweat, Rachel Austero and Ranya Musa. The Angels tapped as reinforcements Kadi Kullerkannm of Estonia and Anastasia Trach of Ukraine.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

High school stars Nisperos, Cagande to banner BaliPure

BaliPure is investing on future volleyball stars after tapping the core of UAAP high school powerhouse Nazareth School of National University for its lineup in the 2nd Premier Volleyball League Reinforced conference slated to begin on May 6. The Water Defenders needed a major overhaul after most of the franchise’s players including head coach Roger Gorayeb bolted out of the team to join new team PayMaya. Hoping to build a new program hinged on young players, BaliPure, which claimed the Open Conference crown last year, decided to bring in the core of young guns and rising stars of four-peat UAAP girls volleyball champion NU who are expected to shine as the future of Philippine volleyball. Two-time UAAP Season Most Valuable Player and two-time Finals MVP Faith Nisperos and three-time Best Setter Joyme Cagande will banner the Water Defenders, who are yet to submit the names of their imports. Helping Nisperos and Cagande are UAAP Season 80 MVP Mhicaela Belen, libero Jennifer Nierva, towering middles Alyssa Solomon and Ivy Lacsina, and Princess Robles, who played for the Babes Castillo-mentored Lady Bulldogs that dominated the inaugural PVL Collegiate Conference last year.    Joining the young bloods is a set of NU seniors team veterans in Rica Diolan, libero Gayle Valdez, Rosleyn Doria, Roma Joy Doromal and Audrey Paran. Despite a very young lineup, BaliPure won’t be a pushover team with its players all looking to show their talents in the eight-team, import-laden team. The Water Defenders could give defending champion Pocari Sweat, Creamline, PayMaya, Iriga-Navy, Petro Gazz, Tacloban and BanKo-Perlas a run for their money.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Amazing years full of lessons, laughter, love, friendship and memories. This will always hold a special place in my heart.

Behind her, former De La Salle teammate Michele Gumabao and top hitter Myla Pablo, the Lady Slammers landed a bronze medal finish in the All-Filipino Conference and the import-laden Grand Prix with Americans Bojana Todorovic and Alexis Olgard.    After just a year in the PSL, the squad transferred to the V-League under the Pocari Sweat banner. The Lady Warriors found success in the league as they went on to win the Open and Reinforced Conferences. Gohing won the Best Libero award in the V-League’s Open Conference. Gohing again captured another Best Libero award when she helped Pocari Sweat bag the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference crown.

PVL on Tour: Valdez visits home province

Alyssa Valdez returns to her home province as the second leg of the Premier Volleyball League’s “PVL on Tour” visits Batangas City on Sunday. The former three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player will banner Creamline when the Cool Smashers face BanKo-Perlas at 6:00 p.m. at the Batangas City Sports Complex. Valdez will take a break from her stint as an import of Chinese Taipei club team Attack Line to participate in three legs of the PVL on Tour. She will also see action in the exhibition matches at the Iloilo Sports Complex on Oct. 17 and La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod the next day. “She (Valdez) will play in Batangas, Iloilo and Bacolod,” said Charo Soriano, whose group Grid Athletic Sports is co-organizing the PVL on Tour with the PVL.

Gervacio returns to Foton

Dzi Gervacio will make a return stint with Foton for the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix, slated to open on October 21 as the Tornadoes gun for a three-peat in the import-laden tournament. The former Ateneo de Manila University star last donned the Tornadoes jersey two years ago and her addition will shore up the squad's lineup in the nine-team season-ending conference.   “Injury-plagued pa rin kami so we’ll see (if maka-three-peat) but Miss Gervacio will be a big boost to our campaign,” said Foton team owner Rommel Sytin Friday when he met Gervacio and league officials headed by chairman Philip Juico and president Ramon ‘Tats’ Suzara. Gervacio will add more firepower to the Tornadoes, alongside veterans and national team members 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and Maika Ortiz and holdovers Ivy Perez and returning Dindin Santiago-Manabat. Foton tapped Sara Klisura and Katarina Vukamanovic of Serbia and Dragana Perunicnic of Montenegro.  Gervacio suited up for the Tornadoes back in the 2014 Grand Prix and the 2015 All-Filipino Conference where she unfortunately sustained a left ACL injury in a match against Philips Gold. She returned to indoor volleyball last year with BaliPure in the V-League and then played for BanKo-Perlas in the 2017 Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference. Gervacio is also busy organizing tournaments for Beach Volleyball Republic with close friends and Ateneo alumni Charo Soriano, Bea Tan and Gretchen Ho. The meeting also served as a chance for bridging the gap between Gervacio and Suzara regarding the issue of the delayed release of the international transfer certificates of PVL imports back in May. Gervacio apologized for her tweets and the hashtag 'IbigayMoNaTatsSuzara, which accused Suzara, the marketing and development committee chair of the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) and an active member of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), of meddling with the processing of the ITCs. Gervacio in an letter said that her decision to bring the issue through social media platform ‘was in no way to try and disrespect Mr. Suzara as it was my way of eliciting a response from the authorities regarding the matter.’ Suzara said that everything’s water under the bridge now and thanked Sytin for initiating the fruitful meeting to clear the issue. “I respect Mr. Sytin and admire him for his decision to settle all things among the PSL, our stakeholders, our players and prove that negativity has no place in our quest to become one of the leading sports leagues in the country,” he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers keep hold of the top spot

BATANGAS CITY -- Alyssa Valdez scored from almost everywhere and in every way. The Creamline star was sharp from the service line. When the Cool Smashers needed clutch points in second set, Valdez was there. Heck, Valdez even scored off a blocked spike attempt that bounced of her head, grazed the top of the net before falling on an unguarded spot in the third frame. Playing with skill, grit and a drizzle of luck, Valdez led Creamline to a 25-14, 27-25, 26-24, win over Tacloban on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum here. The Cool Smashers snatched their second straight win for a 4-1 win-loss record and a hold of the solo lead. Valdez led the way with 22 points highlighted by eight aces to go with her 14 kills for Creamline, which landed a total of 14 service winners and 44 attack points. Thai import Kuttika Kaewpin scored 16 markers while Serbian Nina Asceric chipped in with nine points including the match-clinching kill block for  the Cool Smashers.   Just like in their second set fightback, Creamline recovered from an 18-22 deficit in the third with Valdez nailing three straight aces to put the Cool Smashers at match point, 24-23. Jovielyn Prado saved a match point for Tacloban. Creamline Thai import Kuttika Kaewpin pushed the Cool Smashers at match point advantage before Serbian Nina Asceric closed the game with a kill block on Prado.      The Fighting Warays dropped their second match in a row to slide back to 2-3 card.

PVL: Angels soar for second straight win

Petro Gazz came out smoking on all cylinders as the Angels welcomed their new import Olena Lymareva-Flink with an emphatic 25-22, 30-28, 25-13, win Saturday over skidding Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Angels, who played depleted after injuries on locals Rachel Austero (shin fracture) and Wensh Tiu (right ankle), improved to 2-3 win-loss record. Lymareva-Flink, who replaced injured Estonian Kadi Kullerkann (knee), debuted with a bang as the Ukranian reinforcement unloaded 16 points off 12 kills and four service aces while adding 14 digs for Petro Gazz.     “Happy with the win but more practice,” said Angels head coach Jerry Yee. "May bagong import and may receive, may depensa. Hopefully maayos pa natin.” Cherry Nunag, who earned a spot in the team after Austero was ruled out of the conference, added nine points while Anastasiia Trach of Ukraine scored eight for the Angels, which arrested a three-game skid last week with a come-from-behind five-set win over BanKo in Batangas. After easily taking the opening frame, Petro Gazz faced tough resistance from the Lady Oragons in the second set. Iriga-Navy saved five set points before Lymareva-Flink closed the frame with a push and an ace. It was all Angels in the third set.       The Lady Oragons, who gave away 31 points off errors, absorbed their straight loss in four outings. American import Lauren Whyte and Macy Ubben were the only Iriga-Navy players in double figures with 17 and 14 points, respectively.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lymareva-Flink provides extra firepower for surging Angels

Ukrainian Olena Lymareva-Flink felt that she could’ve done better for Petro Gazz if not for some first game jitters and a little too much excitement on her part. The Angels’ import, who replaced injured Kadi Kullerkann of Estonia, made a quick impact as she scored 16 points in Petro Gazz’s 25-22, 30-28, 25-13, demolition of Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference on Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.       “I think I just got too excited,” said the 25-year old spiker. Lymareva-Flink had 12 attacks on 32 attempts and four service aces while adding 14 digs for the Angels. “Before the game I was afraid to make some mistakes that’s why I didn’t kill all the balls,” she said. “Normally I’m a strong spiker but I only had one practice with our main setter.” The reinforcement, who was tapped to take the place of Kullerkann after the Estonian aggravated her lingering left knee injury, arrived last Thursday and went straight into practice even after a 30-hour travel. “I decided it would be much better for me to come here and feel the ball,” said Lymareva-Flink. “I felt that I should prepare myself for the game.” Head coach Jerry Yee praised his new import for her dedication to help the team. “Ang sipag niya eh. Pagdating niya ng Thursday, alam ko may nine-hour layover, may 30 hours na nakaupo lang siya eh. Pagdating niya ng Thursday ayaw niya na magpahinga lang eh. Gusto niya kaagad ma-feel yung bola,” Yee said. Petro Gazz won its second straight after dropping its first three games. The Angels will close the prelims against Pocari Sweat-Air Force and Paymaya.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers survive 5-set thriller, snap 4-game skid

BanKo cashed in on Nicole Tiamzon’s heroics in the fifth set to snap a four-game slide to complete a come-from-behind 18-25, 18-25, 25-19, 25-22, 15-11, win over PayMaya Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre. The former University of the Philippines hitter Tiamzon scored five of her 11 points in the deciding frame to deliver the Perlas Spikers second win in six games. American import Kia Bright finished with 25 points anchored on 23 attacks and two kill blocks while Thai reinforcement Jutarat Montripila had 24 markers including 22 off kills for BanKo, which survived High Flyer American import Tess Rountree’s 39-point explosion. With momentum on their side after stealing the third and fourth sets, the Perlas Spikers built an 11-8 lead. PayMaya rallied to close the gap, 12-11, before Bright scored on a next play followed by back-to-back errors by the High Flyers as BanKo walked away with an upset. “Pahirapan ang panalo naming, pero kahit papaano na-relieve kami kasi emotionally drained ang team dahil sa sunud-sunod na talo,” said a very relieved Banko head coach Dong Dela Cruz. The High Flyers were sharp in the first two frames before slowly fizzling out. Rountree hammered 31 spikes and had five kill blocks and three service aces for PayMaya, which fell to 3-2 card. American Shelby Sullivan had 13 markers while Jerrili Malabanan and Celine Domingo chipped in 11 and nine points, respectively, for the High Flyers.     ---              Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
