Former Arizona University star “Kalei Mau” ecstatic over Logistics Cargo Movers stint
Manila, Philippines — Filipino-American Kalei Mau has signed with F2 Logistics in the All-Filipino conference of the Philippine Superliga which will start on June 15.
Mau confirmed her signing on her social media accounts saying she joined the Cargo Movers hoping the team brings out the best in her as she gears up for her Philippine team debut in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
“God continues to bless me with endless opportunities to play this sport. I am happy to announce that I am officially a member of @f2cargomovers. New chapter, same Goal. Thank you for all the love and support!” Mau wrote on his Instagram account.
Mau also responded to a now-deleted tweet claiming that the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers illegally acquired the services of the outside hitter.
I’ve been very quiet on here but this ignorant response stood out to me. Nothing in this process was done illegally. The decision is mine to make I wanted a team with a good coach, system, & a strong team that could help me improve so I’m at my best to represent this country,” Mau wrote on her Twitter account.
Mau signed up with the Cargo Movers for the remainder of the season following the disbandment of her club, United VC.
In a report by Philippine Star, team manager Hollie Reyes said they were fortunate to have the former Arizona University star as her strong leadership, work ethic and all-around skills would be a major help to their bid of knocking the crown off the head of Petron.
“We’re glad to have Kalei on board,” said Reyes, adding that Mau came at the right time as they are in need of an open spiker to replace Cha Cruz.
“Kalei already trained with us and we liked what we saw. She’s a very skilled player who can help us both on offense and defense.”
The Fil-Hawaiian open spiker adds firepower to the Cargo Movers’ lethal frontline together with Ara Galang that can possibly bring them the 2019 PSL All-Filipino crown.
F2 Logistics will start its All-Filipino campaign against Generika on Saturday, June 15, 2 pm at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
