Alyssa Valdez, Mika Reyes topbills the home fans tribute game who will be able to see their idols in a rare event – playing together in one team. The national volleyball pool members will be playing an exhibit game ahead of the Southeast Asian Games on Monday at San Juan Arena. The event, called “Clash of Heroes” will be the first time ever that the two legendary volleybelles from Ateneo Lady Eagles and DLSU Lady Spikers, will be playing together in a broadcasted event.


Ateneo phenom Alyssa Valdez paved way for them to clinch back-to-back UAAP championships in Season 76 and 77 while Mika Reyes finished her collegiate career with three championship titles for La Salle. Both will be playing at the SEA Games to be held in Kuala Lumpur. The fund-raiser on Monday aims to raise funds and draw support and excitement for their bid in the upcoming SEAGames battle.

The upcoming “Clash of Heroes” will be played by Pilipinas Blue and Red teams. Reyes and Valdez will play  together with with La Salle’s Kim Fajardo, Kim Dy and Dawn Macandili. Aside from the recently-crowned champs, other national team members in Reyes and Valdez lead Pilipinas Blue team such as Kat Tolentino, Elaine Kasilag, Bia General, Frances Molina, Ria Meneses, Lourdes Clemente and CJ Rosario are expected to heat up the competition.

Pilipinas-Red will have veterans Rachel Anne Daquis, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Jaja Santiago, Aby Marano, Denden Lazaro, Kat Arado, Myla Pablo, Gretchel Soltones, Gen Casugod, Maika Ortiz, Maddie Madayag, Rhea Dimaculangan and Roselle Baliton.


The said event will also be the final basis for the cut and will also be the determinant on who will be the team captain. For the girls, it is a toss-up among Fajardo, Valdez, Maizo-Pontillas and Daquis.

Interestingly, Valdez and Reyes playing in one team is very controversial not only due to the fact that they came from archrival schools but because Alyssa Valdez’s boyfriend, Kiefer Ravena, is Mika Reyes’ ex.
