MANILA, Philippines — Alyssa Valdez, the former national team skipper and Southeast Asian Games flag-bearer, vowed to be stronger and fiercer on her return to competitive play with Creamline in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference tentatively set Feb. 16.

“Definitely, I will really play. I will try my very best even though we’re still in the pandemic,” said Valdez on Kumu, a video sharing social networking site online, Sunday night.

The many-time PVL MVP, who recently tested positive for COVID-19, is the cornerstone of the Jonathan Ng-owned franchise also bannered by Jia Morado, Risa Sato, Jema Galanza, Tots Carlos and Michele Gumabao.

But Valdez will need to get back in shape in a hurry as the league is just about a month away.

The last time Valdez played competitively was last August when she spearheaded the Cool Smashers to a runner-up finish last season in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte behind eventual winners Chery Tiggo Crossovers.
