LVPI praises Rebisco's 'selfless decision'
Rebisco's selfless decision to withdraw Alyssa Valdez from the ongoing Premier Volleyball League (PVL) semifinals is a positive development to our bid of coming up with an impressive finish in the AVC Asian Senior Women's Championship and the Southeast Asian Games -- Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. vice president Peter Cayco

Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. vice president Peter Cayco lauded Rebisco's move to withdraw Creamline’s Alyssa Valdez for the remainder of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Open Conference citing health concerns and to keep the ace spiker fresh for the national team’s two major international tournaments this month. 

Rebisco, the mother company of the Cool Smashers, early Saturday issued a statement of its decision to sit out Valdez for the rest of the conference a few hours before Creamline battles BaliPure in the opener of their best-of-three semifinals series starting 4:00 p.m. at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

“Rebisco's selfless decision to withdraw Alyssa Valdez from the ongoing Premier Volleyball League (PVL) semifinals is a positive development to our bid of coming up with an impressive finish in the AVC Asian Senior Women's Championship and the Southeast Asian Games,” said Cayco.

Valdez already skipped Creamline’s last three elimination round games to join the national team’s 17-day training camp in Japan.

Rebisco released a statement Friday that the reigning Reinforced Conference Most Valuable Player will suit up for Creamline in the semis.

The Nationals will participate in the AVC Asian Senior tilt slated on August 9 to 17 at the Alonte Sports Arena in Binan, Laguna and the 29th SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 19 to 31.

“We know that Alyssa Valdez plays a crucial role to the campaign of our national women's volleyball team,” Cayco added. “Having her fresh and at full strength will allow the team to perform at its best in two major international tournaments ahead.”

“We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our partner, Rebisco, for generously lending us its key player in Alyssa Valdez,” he said. “This gesture only shows that we are one and united in our noble mission of bring the Philippines back to international volleyball prominence.”
