Jaja Santiago has re-signed with the Ageo Medics and is set to suit up in the upcoming Japan V. Premier League, she announced on Chery Tiggo’s Instagram page, Friday evening.
“I would like to announce na I renewed my contract with Ageo Medics,” the 6-foot-5 middle blocker out of National University shared.
“I’m very happy kasi siyempre my Chery family sinuportahan nila ako all throughout my career dito sa Pilipinas and yung sa naging desisyon ko na para pumirma sa Ageo Medics ulit.”
Santiago led the Japanese club to a third-place finish in the previous season. This will be on her third tour of duty with the Ageo Medics once the 2020 season opens on October.
The 24-year-old spiker flew back to the Philippines in February and was supposed to play for Chery Tigo in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix. However, ongoing battle against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic denied Santiago the chance to play again for her mother club.
But the UAAP Season 80 Most Valuable Player vows to come back and help Chery Tigo in the next season.
“I promise naman na pagbalik ko dito next year.
“Hopefully maging normal na lahat bumalik na yung mga work ng mga nawalan ng trabaho and yung volleyball natin, yung training natin pag nagkabalik na lahat sa normal makikita nyo ulit kami at ako sa Philippine volleyball court lumalaban, nakikipagpatayan sa laro,” said Santiago.
