Aleiah Torres ready to embrace pressure with Creamline


By: Ernest Tuazon

Aleiah Torres, selected as the No. 12 pick by Creamline in the inaugural PVL Draft, is poised to embrace the challenge of joining a championship-caliber team ahead of the Reinforced Conference.

Torres, a 22-year-old libero with roots in Cavite and Tarlac, was born and raised by Filipino parents in Toronto, Canada.

Now, she joins a Cool Smashers squad that clinched the last two PVL conferences.

“There’s definitely a lot of pressure, but as my coach back home in Canada said, ‘pressure is a privilege.’ Hopefully, I can enjoy this opportunity and handle whatever comes my way,” Torres said.

The Brook University alumna looks forward to learning from Creamline’s deep libero pool, which includes Kyla Atienza, Ella de Jesus, and Denden Lazaro-Revilla.

During her senior year, Torres led Brock with 234 total digs in 20 regular-season games.

“I see it as a fantastic opportunity to be part of this team and learn from individuals who have experienced winning situations. I hope to contribute my talents and skills to their team and help continue their success,” Torres added.

Torres is eager to play not only in front of her Filipino family but also to represent Creamline’s extensive fan base across the country.

“Many of my family members here haven’t had the chance to watch me play in Canada, so it’s a wonderful opportunity for them to see me live and playing professional volleyball in the Philippines,” she said.

The 22-year-old libero anticipates showcasing her skills against fellow Fil-Canadian PVL standouts such as Savi Davison of PLDT and reigning PVL MVP Brooke Van Sickle from Petro Gazz when the Reinforced Conference begins on July 16.

“It’s incredibly exciting. It’ll be a tough competition on the court, and I look forward to facing them, playing against them, and contributing my skills to the team.”
