REPUBLIC Biscuit Corp. (Rebisco) President Jonathan Ng is bracing for a cheerleading conundrum with the participation of Choco Mucho Flying Titans in the upcoming PVL Open Conference on August 11.
Already, fans are getting hyped about the eventual clash between the Oliver Almadro-coached team bannered by the towering troika of Kat Tolentino, Maddie Madayag, and Bea de Leon and sister team Creamline Cool Smashers headlined by Gia Morado, Michelle Gumabao, and three-time PVL MVP Alyssa Valdez.
"This is going to be a difficult experience for me, especially if sabay na kayo sa Finals," said the soft-spoken executive during Choco Mucho's press introduction last Thursday at the Joy-Nostalg Hotel in Pasig City.
The quip drew laughter and cheers from the crowd comprised of the media, players, coaches, and Rebisco executives.
"Hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko, sa totoo lang," added the volleyball patron, who usually shows up at games in pink-hued shirts in support of his flagship team.
Choco Mucho's proven core from the 2019 UAAP women's volleyball champions Ateneo Lady Eagles will be backstopped by Kim Gequillana and PVL debutantes Gyra Barroga, Bang Pineda, Shang Berte, Shanen Palec, Arianna Angustia, Dancel Dusaran and Erika Alkuino of United Volleyball Club; AC Masangkay of Cignal; and Carla Sandoval of Foton, who all previously played in the Philippine Super Liga.
Dianne Ticar of Iriga-Navy and Cindy Imbo of Perpetual Help complete the lineup.
