2022 AVC Cup for Women

Little rest for Creamline-PH as ASEAN GP up next

Creamline will once again represent the Philippines, this time in the 2022 ASEAN Grand Prix in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

The first of two rounds will be on September 9 to 11 with four participating teams in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

Head coach Sherwin Meneses bared the development after the country’s sixth-place finish in the AVC Cup for Women.2022-AVC-Cup-Philippines-vs-Chinese-Taipei Little rest for Creamline-PH as ASEAN GP up next 2022 AVC Cup for Women News Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Yes ‘yun ‘yung sabi ng management sa amin maglalaro kami sa ASEAN Gran Prix. We have two days break then balik na kami sa ensayo.

“Hopefully madala namin ‘yung exposure dito going to Thailand,” added Meneses, whose squad won three of its seven matches.

The Cool Smashers will now wait if team skipper Alyssa Valdez can recover in time for the regional meet.

Valdez, two days prior to the start of the AVC Cup, was announced out of the tournament due to dengue fever.PVL-2022-Invitational-Creamline-vs.-Cignal-Alyssa-Valdez-1763 Little rest for Creamline-PH as ASEAN GP up next 2022 AVC Cup for Women News Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Hindi ko pa masagot pero hopefully makabalik siya para syempre, iba naman talaga ‘yung ambag ni Alyssa sa team pero syempre ‘yung health niya muna ang concern namin,” said Meneses on Valdez’s availability.

The ASEAN Grand Prix will be Creamline’s third tournament in a month after the team reigned supreme in the PVL Invitational Conference last August 14.

And for the sacrifice that the players do for the country, Meneses is proud of his squad.

“‘Yung team familiarity at team chemistry napakahalaga dito sa tournament na ito. Thank you sa mga players talaga na never sumuko dito.”
