Juan GDL, Quezada clear quarantine as Santiago leaves for Japan

Juan Gomez de Liano and Quinley Quezada were able to join their respective teams in Japan while Jaja Santiago is expected to join hers in a couple of weeks.

Gomez de Liano was the first Filipino to clear the mandated 14-day quarantine last Monday and was able to join B.League Division II team Earth Friends Tokyo Z in their practice.

With this, the 21-year-old guard out of University of the Philippines will be able to play in Tokyo Z’s pre-season game at the Ota Ward General Gymnasium on September 17.

On the other hand, Quezada, a 24-year-old Filipino-American forward, attended her first practice with WE League club JEF United Chiba, Tuesday morning.

Quezada will make her Chiba debut against women’s national football team teammate Sarina Bolden and Saitama on September 18.

Santiago also left the country on Tuesday as she is expected to report for Saitama Ageo Medics. The reigning PVL Conference and Finals MVP will also have to enter a mandated 14-day quarantine as well.

Ageo Medics will make its 2021-22 V.League season debut against Okayama on October 16.

Also wrapping up their quarantine are Nagoya’s Ray Parks, Shiga’s Kiefer Ravena, and Bolden.

Expected to leave the country in the coming days are Oita’s Bryan Bagunas, Ibaraki’s Javi Gomez de Liano, Aomori’s Kemark Carino, and Tokyo’s Marck Espejo.
