Kyla Atienza continues to dazzle in the international volleyball scene. The sensational libero brought her impressive skills at defending her side’s back row to emerge as the Best Libero of the ASEAN Grand Prix that ended on Sunday with the Philippines missing the podium for the first time in three editions of the regional volleyball tournament.
Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) president Ramon “Tats” Suzara expressed disappointment on the decision of volleyball stars led by Alyssa Valdez not to attend the tryouts for the national team for the coming Vietnam Southeast Asian Games and other international contests.
With a cast less than the number expected the National (Indoor) Team try-out for the women pushed through with PNVF President “Tats” Suzara looking over the coaches and players at the Subic Gym. 16 of the expected 40 players invited were present and participated.
Alyssa Valdez and Jaja Santiago, protagonists during their time in the UAAP and soon in the PVL, have been changed by the sport.
