Chery Tiggo taps Katherine Bell as import

Chery Tiggo proudly announced the return of Katherine Bell, the renowned 6-foot-2 American spiker, as their import for the upcoming 2024 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference.

The announcement was made Wednesday evening by the Crossovers.

Expressing her excitement, Bell exclaimed, “I’m so excited to announce that I’m finally playing back in the Philippines for Chery Tiggo! I’ve been looking forward to coming back to Manila for a very long time now, about four years since COVID, and I cannot be more excited and happy to be back here for the fans, playing for Chery.”

Bell, 31, brings with her a wealth of experience, having previously played in the Philippines from 2018-2020.

Since then, Bell has showcased her talents internationally, playing in Turkey, Korea, and most recently, in the US for the Pro Volleyball Federation team Vegas Thrill.

Reflecting on her return, Bell emphasized her commitment to excellence, stating, “For the fans that don’t know me, I bring a lot! I bring energy, I bring a little sass, and definitely I bring a winning mentality. I’m excited to be able to come back here and perform to the best of my ability, and hopefully help Chery Tiggo get to the top.”

Joining Chery Tiggo means a reunion with her former teammate Aby Marano, adding an extra layer of familiarity to her new journey.

“Even though I’m new to Chery Tiggo, I’m fortunate enough to be playing with Aby. There are a few players as well that I’m excited to see, my old teammates from my old team. Coming to Chery Tiggo, I’m really excited just to be here,” she expressed.

Chery Tiggo finished in fourth place during the 2024 PVL All-Filipinno Conference.
