Akari signs Dindin Manabat, Camille Victoria



Akari has beefed up its frontline.


The Power Chargers has signed blockers Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Camille Victoria.


Santiago-Manabat, who stands at 6-foot-2, is a decorated spiker, winning MVP twice in the V-League.


She was also part of the Chery Tiggo team that won gold in 2021.


This is the first time Santiago-Manabat has switched teams since 2016.


Meanwhile, Victoria is a 6-foot-1 prospect who previously played for University of Santo Tomas.


“We believe Cams is a great addition to the team,” said Akari Sports director Russell Balbacal. “She has a lot of potential and I believe our coaching staff is well-equipped to bring out the best in her.”
