Bersola, Tiamzon join Perlas girls
The Perlas Lady Spikers have tapped former University of the Philippines standouts Kat Bersola and Nicole Tiamzon to reinforce their campaign in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference firing off April 30 at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.
Bersola and Tiamzon, who have completed their tour of duty with the Lady Maroons, will be reunited with their college coach Jerry Yee, the man at the helm of the squad bannered by the founders of Beach Volleyball Republic.
They include Charo Soriano, Bea Tan and Karla Bello.
Tiamzon and Bersola are expected to provide firepower to the Perlas team backstopped by Brazilian spiker Rupia Inck and Japanese setter Naoko Hashimoto.
The pair will also join former Ateneo stalwarts Amy Ahomiro, Mae Tajima, Dzi Gervacio, Ella de Jesus and Jem Ferrer, making Perlas one of the teams to watch in the league, formerly known as Shakey’s V-League and still organized by Sports Vision.
“They are a big addition to our team and their youth and energy should really help us,” said Soriano.
Perlas debuts against Alyssa Valdez and the Creamline Cool Smashers in the main game of the three-match bill at 6 p.m.
