Following the confirmation of Stephanie Niemer via an Instagram post that she will return for the Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix 2019 for Petron, speculations about who her tandem would be have arisen.
One of the names that came out was fellow American Katherine Bell.
A source privy on the internal dealings of Petron told FOX PH that they are already negotiating with the 25-year old power hitter and are at 80% sure of reacquiring her services for the annual tournament.
“Si [Kath] Bell, 80% sure na. We just have to fix some details muna,” the source said.
Bell was a vital cog in the championship run of the Blaze Spikers in the Grand Prix last year after she replaced Hillary Hurley midway the season.
If and when Bell plays for the Petron, she is a perfect fit to team-up with Niemer and a stack of players who will form the nucleus of the team. — Alvin John Tanada
