Cignal retools for Grand Prix

Puerto Rican Olympian Lynda Morales will be returning for another tour of duty when she powers Cignal in the 2016 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix women’s volleyball tournament that is set to start this October.

Fresh from her Rio Olympics campaign, Morales will serve as the HD Spikers’ anchor on defense together with Laura Schaudt, an explosive 6’5″ open hitter from Oregon State University.

The HD Spikers also made a strong recruiting run in the mid-season when they tapped Paneng Mercado from F2 Logistics and Janine Marciano from BaliPure, while bringing back the league’s first Most Valuable Player Venus Bernal to form a three-headed monster that could light up the scoreboard.PSL-AFC-2016-Lipa-Cignal-vs.-Amys-Vivas-5728 Cignal retools for Grand Prix News PSL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“I like the composition of my team,” said Cignal coach Sammy Acaylar, who still has Michelle Laborte, Jheck Dionela, and Cherry Vivas to bank on.

“I know it is still early, but I think I can say that this is really a fighting team.

“Everybody is capable of bringing in big numbers from all categories,” the veteran mentor concluded.
