Philippine team officially slams door on Valdez, Morado


There is no more chance for Creamline Cool Smashers stars Alyssa Valdez and Julia Morado to be inserted to the national women’s volleyball team.

Philippine team head coach Odjie Mamon said no more changes will be made from its current pool 25 players, which will be tested in next month’s AVC tournament in Thailand.

“Hindi na magbabago ang 25 players,” Mamon said during Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum.

Mamon has earlier said that Valdez and Morado “were never considered” when they were forming the team and even during when they were making additions.

Valdez and Morado were fixtures in the national women’s volleyball team in the previous international competitions.
