The Choco Mucho Flying Titans signed veteran setter Deanna Wong and University of Santo Tomas standout Caitlyn Viray to bolster their roster for future Premier Volleyball League competitions.

The announcement came at the team’s official social media account Sunday night, welcoming the two players to the family.

“Everything is SET. Bet you all saw this coming! Let’s all welcome Deanna Wong as she officially joins the Choco Mucho Flying Titans family!” said the team in a tweet on their account, @CMFlyingTitans.

“My oh my! It’s Caitlyn Viray! Welcome to the Choco Mucho Flying Titans family! We can’t wait to soar with you on the court!” added another tweet.

The 5-foot-8 Wong was a standout in her collegiate years for Ateneo, winning the Best Setter Award in the UAAP in 2018. In the same year, she also played for Motolite in the PVL Season 2 Open Conference.

Viray, meanwhile, was part of the UST squad that settled for a runner-up finish to Ateneo in 2019. She can play as middle blocker and wing spiker.

She previously played in club teams Smart-Army and Marinerang Pilipina in the Philippine Superliga.

The Flying Titans seek to erase the stigma of a seventh place finish in the 2019 Open Conference by also signing veteran libero Denden Lazaro last month.

Team sports have yet to be allowed during quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic but PVL organizers are already planning to hold at least one conference this year once restrictions are eased.
