PVL organizers blast 'absurd' Soltones suspension

MANILA, Philippines — (UPDATED) The organizers of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) on Tuesday hit back at the Philippine Superliga (PSL) for its suspension of Grethcel Soltones.

The PSL announced Monday that Soltones had violated its "one league policy" after she played in the PVL All-Star Game despite being committed to play for Iriga City in the PSL Grand Prix.

This merited a fine of P50,000 and a one-year suspension for Soltones, a three-time NCAA MVP with San Sebastian College and a PVL champion with Bali Pure.

"The suspension and hefty fine on (Gretchel) Soltones by the PSL officials is absurd and totally uncalled for,” Sports Vision president Ricky Palou said in a statement. “In the first place, Soltones has no contract with the PSL. She is only on loan to the team of Iriga as her mother league is the PVL.”

Palou also pointed out that the PVL All Star Game is one-day charity event held for the benefit of Hero Foundation, a foundation established to raise scholarship funds for children of soldiers who gave up their lives in the line of duty.
