Cocolife, Foton eye semis berths

COCOLIFE and Foton gun for the remaining semis berths when they battle gritty foes today in the resumption of quarterfinals battle in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at The Arena in San Juan.

Bannered by new import Marta Drpa, the Asset Managers will face Cignal at 4:15 p.m. while the Tornadoes parade two new players when they clash with Sta. Lucia Realty in the 7 o’clock featured encounter of the women’s club tourney bankrolled by Isuzu and UCPB Gen with ESPN5 as official broadcast partner.

Before the games, the league will hold a special tribute to Gyselle Silva, who is set to leave Manila later in the day.

Silva, the power-hitting Cuban reinforcement of Smart, will be honored with a plaque and a special jersey for erupting for a league-record 56 points in Smart’s five-set loss to Cocolife last Apr. 7 at the Batangas City Sports Center.

The 26-year-old former national team member put the league in world volleyball map as her incredible feat emerged third in world scoring record behind the 58 points of Polina Rahimova of Azerbaijan in 2015 and 57 points of Madison Kingdon of United States and Elitsa Vasileva of Bulgaria in 2017 and 2013, respectively.
