MANILA, Philippines – PLDT is still suffering from the loss of Jovy Prado due to an ACL injury, but the High Speed Hitters are making up for it with the recruitment of Filipino-Canadian Savannah Davison.
In a message posted by the team on Wednesday evening, PLDT confirmed that it has secured the use of the five-foot outside spiker to fill the void left by Prado for the Premier Volleyball League’s third conference.
For Davison, being able to play in the Philippines is something she is looking forward to. She says she wants to experience the country’s love for the volleyball scene.
“Something I’m looking forward to at this conference is seeing the competition. I have heard so much about volleyball in the Philippines and I can’t wait to experience it,” said Davison.
“I’m also excited to see how far our PLDT team can take this conference. I think we have a good chance this year.”
Davison played in Division 1 of the American NCAA and also played for both the University of Oklahoma and New Mexico State University.
The High Speed Hitters, meanwhile, are also excited about the signing of the promising Spiker, calling her the “perfect addition” to the team.
“We found Filipino-Canadian Savannah Davison to be the perfect addition to the PLDT team. Athletic, smart and fun, she is someone we can’t wait for you to witness,” part of PLDT’s statement read.
Davison will share the teraflex with stars Rhea Dimaculangan, Mika Reyes, Kath Arado, Dell Palomata and Mean Mendrez.
PLDT will kick off its All-Filipino Conference campaign at the Araneta Coliseum next week, Saturday, when it faces sister team Cignal HD Spikers.
