Trisha Tubu and Kate Santiago led an exodus of Adamson University players to the professional ranks after joining the Premier Volleyball League expansion team Farm Fresh.
The league unveiled the Foxies roster on its website bannered by new recruits Tubu, who just played one season in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, and Santiago along with other Lady Falcons players middle Aprylle Tagsip and libero Cae Lazo.
Farm Fresh has already announced the signing of Lazo in its social media post on Thursday but is yet to officially welcome Tubu, Santiago and Tagsip for the PVL Invitational Conference unwrapping on 27 June.
Tubu had an impressive showing in her rookie year in Season 85 as the 22-year-old opposite spiker averaged 14.5 points per game.
Santiago, who donned the Lady Falcons jersey for two years, normed with 14 points per outing in what turned out to be her last season in the UAAP.
The duo along with Tagsip and Lazo were instrumental in helping Adamson end a nine-year Final Four drought to finish in third place.
They will reunite with Foxies head coach Jerry Yee, who was released by Adamson just a month after the conclusion of Season 85, and will join the core of back-to-back National Collegiate Athletic Association of the Philippines champion College of Saint Benilde led by Gayle Pascual, Jade Gentapa and setter Cloanne Mondonedo along with former Ateneo de Manila University middle blockers Joan Narit and Pia Ildefonso.
Farm Fresh is in Pool B with Choco Mucho, Cignal, F2 Logistics, newcomer Foton and Petro Gazz.
The Foxies open their campaign against the Cargo Movers on Tuesday at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.
