It didn’t take long for Cherry Nunag to find a new home.

Shortly after parting ways with PetroGazz, the seasoned middle blocker has given her commitment to see action for the Perlas Spikers in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL).

“Although I’m excited to make new memories with my new team, I will always treasure my experiences and journey with PetroGazz,” said Nunag, who was a key cog in Angels’ stellar runs in the past.

“What can I contribute (to Perlas)? One of the loopholes in Perlas’ game plan is the middle.”

Nunag, the 2nd Best Middle Blocker during the 2019 Reinforced Conference, will be a great addition to the Perlas Spikers, who finished third in the 2019 Open Conference.

The former DLSU-Dasmariñas standout will join a star-studded frontcourt that already has the 6-foot Mae Tajima and 5-foot-11 Kathy Bersola.

Currently, Perlas is powered by veterans Dzi Gervacio, Gizelle Tan, Jem Ferrer, Nicole Tiamzon, and Sue Roces.

“And another thing, I hope I can bring to the team my being vocal and my passion for the game,” said the 5-foot-11 Nunag in a statement through her agency Virtual Playground.

“I chose BanKo over other teams who are making an offer because I always make sure to have great teammates when I join a club,” she added.

Nunag has become the second former PetroGazz vital cog to transfer after Jeanette Panaga inked a deal with Creamline.
