PVL’s Shakeup: Bea De Leon and Denden Lazaro-Revilla Join Creamline Cool Smashers


Amidst anticipation for the 2024 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) season, notable players Bea De Leon and Denden Lazaro-Revilla have made the decision to leave Choco Mucho and transition to the Creamline Cool Smashers, altering the landscape of the league’s competing teams. Their departure from Choco Mucho adds intrigue to the upcoming season, as they join forces with Creamline, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown.

Sources close to the teams disclosed this significant roster move, sparking discussions and speculations about the impact it will have on both squads. The move brings about a reunion for De Leon and Lazaro-Revilla with former Ateneo teammates Alyssa Valdez, Ella De Jesus, and Jia De Guzman. This reunion not only strengthens Creamline’s lineup but also reignites the chemistry that once led the Ateneo Blue Eagles to UAAP titles in Seasons 76 and 77.

For De Leon, who had been an integral part of Choco Mucho since its inception in 2019, this marks a fresh start, presenting her with a new challenge and an opportunity to contribute to Creamline’s quest for dominance in the league. Her inclusion adds depth and versatility to the already talent-rich Cool Smashers, complementing the prowess of Valdez, Tots Carlos, Jema Galanza, Michele Gumabao, Bernadeth Pons, and other key players.

Simultaneously, Lazaro-Revilla, who had been associated with the Flying Titans since 2020, brings her expertise and experience to the Creamline squad. Joining forces with liberos Ella De Jesus and Kyla Atienza under the guidance of Coach Sherwin Meneses, Lazaro-Revilla aims to make a significant impact on the team’s defensive strategies and overall performance. Her presence adds strength and stability to the Cool Smashers’ backline.

This strategic shuffle not only reshapes Creamline’s roster but also poses challenges for Choco Mucho, prompting the latter to reveal its recruitments soon to compensate for the departures and fortify its lineup. With reigning All-Filipino MVP Sisi Rondina, Deanna Wong, Kat Tolentino, Cherry Nunag, and Maddie Madayag, Choco Mucho aims to make a statement in the upcoming PVL season, despite the void left by De Leon and Lazaro-Revilla.

The Creamline Cool Smashers, a team renowned for their consistent performance and dominance in the league, have emerged victorious multiple times but are still vying for the elusive grand slam, having narrowly missed it in recent seasons. Conversely, the Flying Titans, led by Coach Dante Alinsunurin, showed remarkable growth in their last All-Filipino Conference, finishing with an impressive 10-1 record in the elimination round and securing their maiden finals appearance.

The stage is set for an exciting and highly anticipated 2024 PVL season, with the additions of De Leon and Lazaro-Revilla to the Creamline Cool Smashers promising a compelling dynamic and intense competition among the teams.
