Michelle Morente will not be playing for the De La Salle University Lady Spikers in the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball tournament.
Instead, the 5-foot-6 utility spiker will suit up for the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers in the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix.
A source close to the situation cites the injuries to key Cargo Movers as to Morente’s inclusion in their lineup.
Morente, who transferred from Ateneo to La Salle following UAAP Season 79, had been seen training with the Lady Spikers over the last few weeks — even joining the team’s camp in Baguio last month.
Morente made her debut as a Lady Spiker back in August as she and Tin Tiamzon towed La Salle to a silver finish in the UAAP Beach Volleyball tournament.
This means that the 23-year-old has exhausted her playing years in the UAAP.
Morente, however, was listed on F2 Logistics’ official lineup for the upcoming Grand Prix, whose schedule coincides with the UAAP’s. She has been a Cargo Mover since 2018.
In the 2018 All-Filipino Cup, Morente played big minutes as F2 Logistics’ starting opposite hitter Kianna Dy sustained knee ligament injuries. Kim Fajardo, Cha Cruz-Behag, and Ara Galang are also going to play through minor injuries.
