Jovelyn Gonzaga’s return to Cignal was announced by the team on Wednesday.
Gonzaga’s last appearance in the Premier Volleyball League was in the 2022 Reinforced Conference, where her Philippine Army team went winless in eight matches.
The two-time Shakey’s V-League MVP made the decision to skip the Lady Troopers’ participation in the 2023 Open Conference to focus on her upcoming campaign in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games beach volleyball event.
Before the pandemic, Gonzaga played for both the HD Spikers in the Philippine Super Liga and Army in the PVL. Her last appearance for the latter was in the 2019 season, leading the team to a finals appearance in the All-Filipino Conference.
The 31-year-old veteran is now set to reunite with her good friend Rachel Anne Daquis at Cignal.
The HD Spikers recently finished in sixth place in the PVL All-Filipino Conference a few months ago.
In addition to Gonzaga, Cignal has also added former Ateneo standout Vanie Gandler to their pool of wing spikers, which already includes Daquis, Ces Molina, Jerrili Malabanan, Glaudine Troncoso, Chin Basas, and Graze Bombita.
