Ahomiro gets green light
Former Ateneo stalwart Amy Ahomiro gets to play in the coming Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after all.
This after the PVL amended its rule about permanent residents, allowing the Perlas spiker to see action in the Open which kicks off this Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
According to a statement by PVL president Ricky Palou, the organizing Sports Vision will now allow players with Alien Certificate of Residence to play provided they have been residing in the Philippines for at least 10 years.
Ahomiro, born in New Zealand, has been in the country for more than 10 years. She finished high school at Brent before playing for the Lady Eagles.
“We will allow foreign nationals who are residents of the Philippines and holders of ACRs to play,” the statement read. “However, we have restrictions.”
The league has also barred Thai Pacharee Sangmuang, who has been living in the country for three years, to play.
The development is welcome news for Perlas which lost Dzi Gervacio, who will study in the US for two months.
