Former Cignal import Erica Wilson not returning to PSL this year

Former Cignal import Erica Wilson will not be joining the 2020 Philippine SuperLiga (PSL) Grand Prix action.

This development was revealed by Wilson herself in an Instagram post on Sunday morning.

In her post, Wilson addressed and expressed her gratitude to the fans for their support during her tenure with the HD Spikers in 2019.

“I had the pleasure to meet some of you in person but I never officially thanked everyone for supporting me, my team, and the entire PSL Grand Prix. Without you guys we would not be able to do what we love for a living. You guys are truly amazing!” she wrote.

The 28-year old hitter from California, who steered Cignal to a fourth-place finish last year, further confirmed that she will not be seeing PSL action this season.

“I have been avoiding the question whether I will return or not and I owe you guys an answer. Unfortunately, I will not return for the upcoming season,” she said.

Dear Cignal Fans, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had the pleasure to meet some of you in person but I never officially thanked everyone for supporting me, my team, and the entire PSL Grand Prix. Without you guys we would not be able to do what we love for a living. You guys are truly amazing! I have been avoiding the question whether I will return or not and I owe you guys an answer. Unfortunately, I will not return for the upcoming season. I had one of my best seasons in the Philippines and I believe it’s because you all brought the fun back into the sport which can be hard when it’s your profession. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fortunately, we have social media to stay connected ❤️ playing in the Philippines has been a life changing experience that I will never forget.To my teammates, I love you all and I wish you the best of luck this season! “Thank you coaches, thank you teammates, thank you lord” 🙏🏾

Together with Anastiya Artameva from Azerbaijan, Wilson was the HD Spikers’ top gun and was one of the most dominant reinforcements in the league last year.

The reigning Best Opposite spiker averaged 21.78 points per match on top of a 38.94 percent conversion rate in spikes.

“I had one of my best seasons in the Philippines and I believe it’s because you all brought the fun back into the sport which can be hard when it’s your profession. Fortunately, we have social media to stay connected,” she said.

With this, Wilson wished Edgar Barroga and his troops’ good luck when they go to battle next month with a yet-to-be-named new import along with local recruit Fiola Ceballos.

“Playing in the Philippines has been a life changing experience that I will never forget. To my teammates, I love you all and I wish you the best of luck this season!” she closed.
