AN explosive triple-header goes full blast when the 2016 Asics Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix presented by PLDT Home Ultera resumes today at the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan.

Powerhouse Foton continues its title-retention bid when it clashes with Generika at 3 pm while F2 Logistics formally rolls the red carpet for its new import when it battles Cignal at 5 pm followed by the clash between heavyweights RC Cola-Army and Petron in the 7 pm main offering of this tourney bankrolled by Mikasa, Mueller, Grand Sport and Senoh with TV5 as official broadcast partner.
   
With prolific import Stephanie Niemer doing damage, the Tri-Activ Spikers had a blazing start as it posted a pair of convincing wins over Generika and F2 Logistics before the league, which is also sponsored by Focus Athletics, KLab Cyscorpions, Foton, Petron and F2 Logistics, took a three-week break to give way for the country’s hosting of the FIVB Women’s ClubChampionship.
   
Petron is on top of the team standings with 2-0 while Foton and RC Cola-Army had an identical 1-0 slate.
   
Generika and F2 Logistics, meanwhile, are tied at the basement with 0-2, leaving Cignal as the only team that has yet to see action in the season-ending conference.
   
But the tempo of the tourney will completely change as the Cargo Movers parade their prized import in Hayley Spelman, a 6-foot-7 opposite spiker who won a gold medal for United States in the NORCECA Women’s Juniors Continental Championship in 2008.
   
With Spelman finally on board, the Cargo Movers will be at full strength, especially with the presence of fellow import Sydney Kemper.
