George Pascua new PLDT coach
George Pascua returns to club coaching.
Gorayeb’s contract expired at the end of 2021 and the Power Hitters have tapped Pascua, the FEU Lady Tamaraws coach who is returning to club competition after four years out. He last called the shots for Sta. Lucia in the Philippine Superliga in 2018.
The Power Hitters are on a roster rebuild after placing seventh with a 3-6 record last year.
Pascua was at the helm when Petron won the 2014 PSL Grand Prix and went on to score a 13-0 sweep in the 2015 All-Filipino Conference.
Perlas Spikers take leave
The Perlas Spikers are not seeing action this year.
Head coach Rei Diaz and Mich Morente, Jho Maraguinot, Jules Samonte, Thang Ponce, Sue Roces, Czarina Carandang and other members have yet to find a new home.
The Perlas Spikers have been part of the PVL since 2017, placing third thrice.
With Perlas and Sta. Lucia gone at least for this year, the PVL is down to nine teams — Chery Tiggo, Creamline, Petro Gazz, Choco Mucho, Cignal, PLDT, Army, BaliPure and F2 Logistics — with two new potential clubs.
