Kia Motors : spices up Shakey's V-League confab

10/07/2015 | 01:24pm US/Eastern

MANILA, Philippines - Kia Motors extends its sports involvement to women's volleyball as it puts up a crack team ready to do battle against the best in the fold in the Shakey's V-League Season 12 Reinforced Conference, which gets going Saturday at The Arena in San Juan City.

Hoping to figure prominently right on its maiden appearance in the league presented by PLDT Home Ultera, the top car company has tapped Ateneo champion men's team coach Oliver Almadro to handle the squad skippered by Jen Reyes and headed by Ma. Angeli Tabaquero, Mina Aganon, Bang Pineda, Relea Saet and Fil-Am Alexa Micek.

'I am very pleased to announce Kia's latest venture in Philippine sports that is sure to excite both motoring and volleyball fans," said Hernando Gaaac, vice president for sales and marketing of Columbian Autocar Corp., exclusive distributor of Kia Motors vehicles in the country. "It is apparent that volleyball is quickly regaining its glory days as one of the top professional and collegiate sports in the country and Kia is keen to contribute to its flourishing development."

"We may be newbies in the league but we have high hopes for Team Kia Forte as it takes on a grueling challenge on the court," he added.

Completing the KIA Forte roster are Wenneth Eulalio, Faye Guevara, Angelica Legacion, Khristine Basco, Kathlene Magsumbol and Mitchiko Castaaeda.

At the same time, GMA 7 reiterates its all-out support to the country's premier volley league sponsored by Shakey's as it will continue to telecast the weekend games live starting at 12:45 p.m. on GMA News TV Channel 11.

What makes the airing of the Reinforced Conference games different from the previous ones is that the two Sunday matches will be both telecast live, making it a virtual weekend volleyball festival, according to the organizing Sports Vision.

Matches in the recent Collegiate Conference were also aired live, giving fans the frontseat view of top-notch volley action capped by the title clash between National U and Ateneo that also drew full-packed crowds at The Arena.

Meanwhile, Almadro hopes to whip up his talent-laden crew into championship contender in time for the season-ending conference of the league, with the Forte bracing for fierce battle against powerhouse teams Army, PLDT Home Ultera, Navy, Coast Guard and UP Diliman.

For one, the Lady Troopers boast of a solid lineup headed by Rachel Ann Daquis, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Aby Maraao, MJ Balse, Nerissa Bautista and setter Tina Salak, making them the team to beat in the weekend-only tournament backed by Mikasa and Accel.
