THE Creamline Beach Volleyball Program acquired veteran national athlete Dzi Gervacio, the club announced through its social media accounts recently.
A co-founder of the Beach Volleyball Republic, Gervacio was part of the national team that clinched the bronze medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games in 2019, ending the country’s 14-year wait for a podium finish in the event.
The former Ateneo star was previously attached with Premier Volleyball League club Perlas Spikers.
“Having Dzi in the Creamline Beach Team is a great addition to the long-term goals and programs that we have,” Charo Soriano, Program Director for Creamline Beach Volleyball said. “Her experience during the last SEA Games will bring the much-needed prowess in terms of team composition.”
“I’m excited to see her fully embrace the sport and focus on her dreams as a beach volleyball athlete,” Soriano added.
Gervacio will be reunited with Sisi Rondina, Bernadeth Pons and Dij Rodriguez, who were already part of Creamline since last year.
“Ever since I started playing beach, it taught me a lot more perspective as regards to the sport and beyond,” Gervacio said. “I fell in love with it—I wanted to learn more and understand it better.”
“I’m grateful that Rebisco trusted our mission of growing the sport by providing this platform exclusively for beach volleyball athletes—it’s the first of it’s kind,” Gervacio added.
Creamline has tapped of Jozza Cabalsa last month.
Gervacio is a member of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation’s Beach Volleyball Commission and was recently appointed as head of the Far Eastern University volleyball program.
