MANILA, Philippines—PLDT will compete in the upcoming Philippine Conference of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) without the services of Mika Reyes.
PLDT coach Rald Ricafort revealed that Reyes will be out of the conference due to a shoulder injury.
“Mika is currently in rehab. For this conference? No, she won’t be able to play. “She underwent surgery,” the strategist revealed.
Reyes has been dealing with the injury since last year.
Without Reyes, PLDT is expected to lean on the newly acquired Majoy Baron of the dissolved F2 Logistics to fill the void left by Reyes.
“It’s still good because Majoy is the one who will replace her so in some ways, if not better, we’re still good,” Ricafort admitted.
In addition to Baron, the High Speed Hitters also added former Cargo Movers Kim Kianna Dy and Kim Fajardo in the offseason.
PLDT missed out on a spot in the semifinals in the last conference, just behind the Chery Tiggo Crossovers with a 7-4 scoreline.
