Gumabao parts ways with Pocari Sweat
Pocari Sweat captain Michele Gumabao bolts out of the Lady Warriors after two seasons.
Pocari Sweat team captain Michele Gumabao formally parted ways with the two-time V-League champion Lady Warriors, but is yet undecided on which team or league she'll transfer.
Gumabao, who led Pocari Sweat to back-to-back title conquests in the Open and Reinforced conferences in the clubs debut season in the 13th edition of the V-League, made the announcement Wednesday on her Instagram post.
Yes, i am starting a new chapter in my life.. To my coaches and teammates i love you guys so much you are my family always and forever i will never forget our time together!!! 😘😘 namimiss ko na kayo but the game must go on 🙏🏻 i am still undecided on what team and league i'll be joining this year! Thank you for all the support and messages you guys have been sending 😊 officially signing off as pocari's captain 💙
The former De La Salle University standout was one of the vital cogs of the Lady Warriors together with Myla Pablo and libero Melissa Gohing, who both re-signed with Pocari Sweat.
Gumabao was named Best Opposite Spiker in both conferences and bagged the Reinforced Conference Finals Most Valuable Player.
The hitter is also a part of the Adamson University Lady Falcons' coaching staff.
Gumabao was the face of the team since the squad's formation in 2015 when Pocari Sweat then known as Philips Gold Lady Slammers competed in Philippine Superliga.
The club transferred to the V-League in April last year.
