Libero Jen Reyes set to join former NU teammates at Foton

While University of Sto. Tomas had its mini reunion with Petron, former and current National University players are setting their own with the Foton Tornadoes. Seasoned libero Jen Reyes bolted out of the Tri-Activ Spikers to join her former Lady Bulldogs teammates Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Jaja Santiago and Ivy Perez at Foton. The two-time Philippine Superliga Grand Prix champion Tornadoes lost most of their core players including their pair of defensive specialists Bia General and Kara Acevedo after their contracts expired. The Santiago sisters, Perez, EJ Laure and Maika Ortiz are the only holdovers of the team. Jaja Santiago and Laure of UST are unavailable for the Invitational Conference that will open next month because of their commitments with their respective schools.    And the acquisition of Reyes is the start of the team’s rebuilding process. The multi-awarded libero played for Petron for three seasons after transferring from Cignal, helping the Tri-Activ Spikers capture the 2014 Grand Prix and 2015 All-Filipino Conference – a historic 13-0 tournament sweep – crowns.  'Pinakamahirap na desisyon ay magpaalam sa Petron family ko. I spent the last three years of my career sa Petron. We won together, we lost together, para na kaming pamilya,” said Reyes. “But now it’s time for me to face a new challenge. Looking forward ako sa bagong chapter ng buhay ko ngayon.” Reyes has an impressive resume making her a prized defensive gem for any team. The libero has played in numerous international tournaments including consecutive appearances in the AVC Asian Women's Club Championship in 2015 with Petron and in 2016 as a local import for Foton. She also played in the 2016 FIVB Women's Club World Championship.  Aside from General and Acevedo, the Tornadoes also lost Cherry Rondina, setter Rhea Dimaculangan, spikers Patty Orendain and Carol Cerveza and middle blocker Angeli Araneta. Rondina and Dimaculangan transferred to Foton’s Grand Prix archrival Petron.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»
