PNVF to split AVC Women’s Club teams to vets, young guns

The Philippine National Volleyball Federation will be sending two teams to the 2021 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship, set to take place from October 1-7 in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

The Asian Volleyball Confederation has allowed host country Thailand, the Philippines, and Kazakhstan to field two teams each. This follows the decision of China, Japan, North Korea, Chinese-Taipei, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and Turkmenistan to pull out from the yearly tournament due to health and safety concerns.

The seventh team will be from Thailand.

Now, who will compose the two Filipino teams? Well, the federation is planning to put the veterans of the team with Rebisco PH while the developmental team will be the second team.

Rebisco PH will most likely include Kalei Mau, Majoy Baron, Kim Dy, Dawn Macandili, Aby Marano, Rhea Dimaculangan, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Ria Meneses, Mylene Paat, MJ Phillips, Dell Palomata, and Iris Tolenada.

The developmental team, on the other hand, will have Deanna Wong, Jema Galanza, Kat Tolentino, Tin Tiamzon, Imee Hernandez, Ivy Lacsina, Kamille Cal, Mhicaela Belen, Eya Laure, Jennifer Nierva, Faith Nisperos, and Bernadette Pepito.

The composition of teams though will still be subject to change depending on the chemistry of the team during its ongoing bubble training.

Rebisco PH will be slotted with Thailand’s Supreme Chonburi, Kazakhstan’s Altay, and Iran’s Saipa Tehran to form Pool B. Meanwhile, Pool A will consist of Thailand’s Nakhon Ratchasima, Kazakhstan’s Zhetysu, and the Philippines’ Team B.
