This time, the 25-year-old middle blocker, who is expected to play in Japan until April, aims to help her team claim the more prestigious V.League crown.

Santiago, however, will likely miss the 2021 AVC Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship scheduled for next month in Thailand where the Philippines is fielding in two teams.

She has been playing her best volleyball yet following a triumphant PVL campaign with Chery Tiggo where she was also named Conference and Finals MVP.
