After missing the previous Premier Volleyball League (PVL) conferences, Kalei Mau is finally back and is ready to boost the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers in the upcoming PVL Reinforced Conference.

Mau last played in the United States’ first professional volleyball league, the Athletes Unlimited, and was away from the Cargo Movers for almost a year.

The Filipino-American spiker is also a member of the Philippine women’s national volleyball team but is yet to make an appearance since playing in the US.

Without Mau’s presence, the Cargo Movers suffered and failed to reach a single grand finals appearance in the PVL.

Before skipping the PVL Invitational Conference, the Cargo Movers only finished sixth place during the Open Conference.

F2’s last title was during the 2021 Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) Champions League held in a semi-bubble.

During that dominant championship title run, Mau was present and teamed up with Kim Kianna Dy, Majoy Baron, Ara Galang, Kim Fajardo, Aby Maraño, and Dawn Macandili.

Mau will attempt to put the Cargo Movers back on top of PHL volleyball and is yet to play her first game in the PVL.

Aside from Mau’s reinforcement, Lindsay Stalzer, one of the best imports during the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix, also committed to play as their import.

Stalzer first turned heads during the 2014 PSL season where she won the Grand Prix Best Outside Spiker award.

A year after winning the award, Stalzer elevated to superstar import status and clinched the 2015 Grand Prix MVP award and the championship trophy.
