Alyssa Valdez Finds Redemption at Araneta with ‘Sweet Memory’

Alyssa Valdez secures Creamline’s perfect 15-0 campaign in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) second All-Filipino Conference as she finally earned her sweet championship moment in front of a historic 24,459 crowd at Smart Araneta Coliseum. In the fifth set, she scored five of her eight points, including the championship-clinching crosscourt spike, leading Creamline’s 22-25, 25-20, 29-27, 24-26, 15-12 triumph over sister team Choco Mucho. Valdez expressed her gratitude and satisfaction for the victory remarking that she was given the opportunity to play at Araneta and always be in the finals with her team. Creamline coach Sherwin Meneses tried different rotations and combinations in the elimination round with every player fielded delivering the goods which led to their 11-game sweep of the elims. Valdez missed Creamline’s first All-Filipino Conference championship this year due to a knee injury but is happy to be surrounded by her competitive and empowered teammates. She returned to action in the Invitational Conference but wasn’t able to finish the winner-take-all final against Japanese team Kurashiki Ablaze.
