Michele Gumabao feels like a rookie in return to Creamline

After taking a leave of absence to pursue politics, Michele Gumabao is set to make her return to Creamline in the upcoming 2022 Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference.

And the three-time V-League Best Opposite Spiker admitted that she feels like a rookie once more.

“As a rookie, I’m just happy to be back.

“I miss playing volleyball and I’m happy to be back with my teammates,” said 29-year-old Gumabao during the Kumu x PVL press conference on Thursday at the F1 Hotel in Taguig.PVLxKumu-Presscon-Alyssa-Valdez-Michele-Gumabao-4704 Michele Gumabao feels like a rookie in return to Creamline News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

Gumabao skipped the Open Conference earlier this year as she went on a campaign trail.

She joined Mocha Uson in the Mothers for Change party list as its second nominee. The party list, however, failed to land a seat in the House of Representatives.

The party list only garnered 64,785 votes.

Creamline, leaning on the deadly troika of Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza, and conference MVP Tots Carlos, swept the entire tournament to win the Open Conference title.

It was Carlos who stepped up in Gumabao’s absence as she took the ball and ran with it.

Gumabao is motivated to make an immediate impact once the Cool Smashers open their title bid in the Invitationals this Tuesday.

“I will really work hard, I really hope na this season for our team na walang ma-injure, not just for us but for all the teams and makapaglaro lahat,” said the former La Salle standout.

“Yung bago sa akin? Abangan niyo na lang sa game namin on Tuesday so sana manood lahat and mag-support lahat this PVL season.”
