Ex-Lady Eagles reunite as Choco Mucho enters PVL wars

Though the eighth team in the Premier Volleyball League will be a sister team of the Creamline Cool Smashers, that team will be out to dethrone them come the 2019 Open Conference.

Choco Mucho, a team also owned by Rebisco, will make its debut in the PVL’s all-Filipino conference that will begin on Saturday, August 10.

And they went all out with its inaugural roster as they tapped the Ateneo Lady Eagles quartet of Maddie Madayag, Bea De Leon, Kat Tolentino, and Kim Gequillana.

Joining them are some of the players coming from the defunct United Volleyball Club franchise, namely Bang Pineda, Gyra Barroga, Dancel Dusaran, Arianna Angustia, Shang Berte, and Gel Alkuino.

Also part of the squad are Perpetual Help standout Cindy Imbo and UST spiker Carla Sandoval.

Serving as head coach is one of the league’s two triple-crown champions in Oliver Almadro.

Out to dethrone Creamline as well are returning teams Reinforced Conference champs Petro Gazz Angels, PacificTown-Army Lady Troopers, BanKo Perlas Lady Spikers, Motolite Volleyball, and Bali Pure Purest Water Defenders. Completing the field are the Philippine Air Force Jet Spikers.
