PVL Team Preview: Iriga City-Navy
Iriga City mayor Madelaine Alfelor-Gazmen is bringing back the Lady Oragon to its original home.
Iriga City will make a return stint in the 2nd Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference and this time the Lady Oragon is joining forces with Philippine Navy.
Team manager and Iriga City Mayor Madelaine Alfelor-Gazmen is bringing back her team in the Sports Vision-organized league after the Lady Oragon’s last stint in the defunct V-League Open Conference back in 2016.
Edgardo Rusit will handle the Philippine Navy-Iriga squad.
Bicol pride Grazielle Bombita, who made her presence felt together with reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player Shola Alvarez two years ago during their V-League stint, will lead the Lady Oragon.
Backing her are grizzled veterans setter Janet Serafica, Mary Jane Ticar, Norie Jane Diaz, Hezzemie Acuna and Devine Eguia.
Also in the lineup are Florence Madulid, Carissa Martinez, Angela Kim, Shyrra Cabriana, Reynalen Raterta and Macy Uber.
This is also Philippine Navy’s first commercial league participation since the V-League Season 12 Reinforced Conference where it finished fourth in the six-team field.
