The star middle blocker signed with the High Speed Hitters after weighing offers from four other teams when her former club Sta. Lucia opted to take a leave this season.
“Kasi they were very patient and persistent and yun palang I felt the warmth ng team, backed up syempre by the people that are close to me na makakasama ko dun,” said Reyes.
The 27-year-old middle blocker is reunited with Philippine women’s volleyball team and former Petron teammate Rhea Dimaculangan. The pair won three PSL titles together and represented the national team in several international tournaments from 2017 to 2019.
The former La Salle star is also teaming up once again with PLDT holdover Eli Soyud since the Lady Spikers won the UAAP women's volleyball title in 2016, beating the Alyssa Valdez-led Ateneo Lady Eagles.
Mika Reyes looks to help PLDT rise after a 3-6 performance last year.
Reyes believes her net defense and championship experience from the UAAP and PSL would help the new-look PLDT rise from a 3-6 performance in the 2021 PVL bubble in Ilocos Norte.
“Yung team composition feel ko maggrow ako dun at may maitutulong na rin ako because they said they were lacking a middle blocker,” she said. “I also know that PLDT has been supporting volleyball for so many years already which speaks of their commitment to the development of the sport, ano man ang mangyari.”
Reyes joins fellow ex-Lady Realtor Dell Palomata, her best friend Jessey de Leon from Petro Gazz and Ateneo standout Jules Samonte from Perlas.
PLDT earlier acquired reigning Best Libero Kath Arado, wing spikers Mean Mendrez, Fiola Ceballos, Heather Guino-o and setters Wendy Semana and Lhara Clavano for the 2022 Open Conference tentatively set on February 16.
