PSL All-Star picks up bronze
For Aby Maraño, it was one tangible indication that Philippine volleyball is on the upswing.
The feisty middle blocker helped steer a bunch of Philippine Superliga players to a bronze medal in the 2017 Annual Princess Maja Chakri Sirindhorn’s Cup in Sisaket, Thailand, over the weekend.
“After four months, finally a sweet, sweet podium finish,” said Maraño, referring to the period of time she spent with the national team.
“Hopefully with more hard work from us players and a strong volleyball program we can achieve our goals,” added Maraño, the former UAAP MVP from La Salle.
The PSL All-Star squad bested Khonkaen Star Volleyball Club, 25-18, 25-22, 32-34, 25-22, for the bronze medal.
Other team members were Mika Reyes, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Remy Palma, Bang Pineda, Frances Molina, Rhea Dimaculangan, Chie Saet, Jheck Dionela, Honey Royse Tubino, and Mar-Jana Philips.
