    Jan 12, 2022

    AIZA Maizo-Pontillas, MJ Phillips and Bang Pineda have found a new home after Sta. Lucia's exit, hooking up with Petro Gazz for the 2022 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Open Conference tentatively set on February 16.

    The Angels announced the signing of the former Lady Realtors, just days after the team took a leave of absence from the volleyball pro league.

    “Established names in the industry, Aiza Maizo, Mj Phillips and Bang Pineda all Gazzed up to give us exciting games ahead!! Who’s ready?!” Petro Gazz posted on its social media pages on Wednesday evening.


      Phillips, Pontillas and Pineda are teaming up once again with Djanel Cheng and Jonah Sabete, who returned to Petro Gazz after Sta. Lucia's decision to go on a hiatus.

      The Filipina-American wing spiker will be playing for a new squad for the first time, having played for Sta. Lucia the past four years,

      Pontillas, on the other hand, will be donning a new jersey for the third time in seven years after a brief stint with Sta. Lucia last season and a five-year stay with the defunct Petron side from 2016-2020.

      The Adamson standout will work hand-in-hand with returning libero Cienne Cruz to protect Petro Gazz’s floor.

      Petro Gazz recruited eight new players including middle blocker Yeye Gabarda in its bid to surpass its bronze medal in the previous Open Conference.
