2021 SEA Games

Army’s Gonzaga, Bautista called up for women’s beach team with SiPons

The Philippine Women’s National Beach Volleyball Team will get some much-needed reserves.

The Philippine National Volleyball Federation named Philippine Army’s Jovelyn Gonzaga and Nene Bautista as part of the eight-woman pool for the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

Gonzaga had been training with the team since last year. Meanwhile, Bautista made her turn to beach volleyball action during the last leg of the 2021 Beach Volleyball Republic season.

Bautista, 36, last competed for the national team back in the 2010 Asian Beach Volleyball Championship. She partnered up with Jusabelle Brill in 2009 and Johanna Botor-Carpio a year later.

Returning to national team duties are Cherry Rondina, Bernadeth Pons, Dij Rodriguez, Gen Eslapor, and Mer Jauculan.

Jozza Cabalsa of the Philippine Air Force replaced Baby Love Barbon, who will be focusing on her stint with University of Santo Tomas.

For the men’s side, Jaron Requinton, Krung Arbasto, Jude Garcia, James Buytrago, Ran Abdilla, Pemy Bagalay, Pol Salvador, and Jeffer Guerrero compose the pool.
