The Shakey’s V-League highlights its milestone 10th season with a first-ever Shakey’s All-Star Weekend powered by Smart on November 16 to 17 with the league’s best and brightest players the past decade, including the current toast of college volleyball, clashing in what promises to be a memorable weekend for volley fans at The Arena in San Juan City.
The Shakey’s team, to be handled by coach Nestor Pamilar, will be bannered by six of the 10 players voted as the most popular the past decade, including Mary Jean Balse, Michelle Carolino, Rachel Ann Daquis, Aiza Maizo, Suzanne Roces and Angeli Tabaquero.
Backstopping the squad are Angelique Dionela, Rubie de Leon, Maureen Penetrante-Ouano and Tina Salak.
The Smart team, on the other hand, will be led by Dindin Santiago and Jovelyn Gonzaga, who bagged the MVP honors in this year’s conferences, along with Maru Banaticla, Jamenea Ferrer, Jennelyn Reyes, Gretchel Soltones and Pau Soriano and the two other most popular players voted the first 10 years—Alyssa Valdez and Charo Soriano.
Roger Gorayeb is the team coach.
Just like when it partnered with Sports Vision from the very start, Shakey’s executive vice president and chief operating officer Vic Gregorio said Shakey’s is again going all-out in supporting the new endeavor.
