Jia De Guzman’s Message Powers Creamline to Victory in Game 1
In the 2023 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) second All-Filipino Conference, Creamline received a special call from Jia De Guzman from Osaka, Japan before its first Finals match against Choco Mucho. De Guzman wished her team good luck and her message inspired the Cool Smashers, leading them to stay unbeaten in 14 games and defeat first-time finalists, Flying Titans. Alyssa Valdez, who missed playing with De Guzman, praised her teammates’ growth and maturity in showcasing their collective effort. Valdez also commended their new setter, Kyle Negrito, for her outstanding performance during the game. As the team tries to clinch its first title without De Guzman in Game 2, the Cool Smashers will aim for their seventh overall title and fifth All-Filipino crown.
