By Dugout Philippines

ILOILO--Amihan Pilipinas and Bagwis Pilipinas wowed the local fans on Saturday as they came to the said city as part of the PLDT Home Ultera Install Patrol.

Fresh off Bacolod on Friday, where they visited University of St. La Salle and Mayor Monico Puentevella, the volleyball superstars arrived in Iloilo that same day and paid a visit to Vice Mayor Jose Espinosa III.

The full-day volleyball showcase kicked off with a motorcade comprising the volleyball superstars and a simultaneous clinic conducted by the Amihan and Bagwis team coaches at the University of San Agustin Gym.

The thousands of fans who flocked the said arena then gave their loudest cheer when the national team players came in for a meet-and-greet session.

These included Rachel Anne Daquis, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mika Reyes, Peter Torres, Ran Ran Abdilla, John Vic De Guzman and Iloilo’s very own Jovelyn Gonzaga. The event was also graced by Ateneo Lady Eagles volleyball standout Gretchen Ho.

The best of Iloilo’s volleyball players were also able to test their skills through exciting exhibition games—Bagwis against the Iloilo men’s team in round one, and Amihan versus the Iloilo women’s team in round two.

“We are excited to bring the PLDT Home Ultera Install Patrol to the wonderful province of Iloilo,” PLDT VP and Home Marketing Head Gary Dujali said.

He continued, “On top of honing the talents and passion of young aspiring athletes around the nation, this is an opportunity for us to democratize broadband by making it more accessible to homes in far-flung areas,with the help of our Philippine volleyball superstars and the local government units.”
