One of University of the Philippines’ bright spots in its UAAP Season 84 campaign looks to turn professional.
Lorie Bernardo is in the official lineup of Creamline for the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference.
Bernardo, 21, played and studied in UP from Seasons 80-84.
The 6-foot middle blocker’s best game for the Fighting Maroons was when she dropped 13 points in UP’s five-set win over Far Eastern University last May 7.
The Cool Smashers’ first game for the conference will be against Cignal on July 12. And once she plays in a PVL game, she will forgo her collegiate eligibility.
Bernardo still has two playing years left.
Also in Creamline’s lineup is Michele Gumabao.
The three-time V-League Best Opposite Spiker took a leave of absence last conference as she was part of a party list.
Bernardo and Gumabao join a Creamline team that still has the likes of Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza, Tots Carlos, Jia Morado, Kyle Negrito, and Jeanette Panaga.
