Kyle Negrito, the primary setter of the Creamline Cool Smashers, has orchestrated her team's triumph in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) 2024 All-Filipino Conference, securing a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Choco Mucho at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on May 12, 2024. Negrito's exceptional setting skills not only propelled Creamline to their eighth PVL title but also earned her the prestigious Best Setter award for the conference.

Negrito's journey to this momentous achievement has been marked by dedication and hard work. Julia Morado-de Guzman, a former Creamline player and current Denso Airybees reinforcement, praised Negrito's growth, stating, "Kyle would work hard even when I was still playing for Creamline; she does the extra work, she comes to practice early, and she always asks when she wants to improve something." Morado-de Guzman expressed immense pride in Negrito's accomplishments, acknowledging the trust she has in her former teammate.

In a thrilling five-set match, Creamline emerged victorious with set scores of 20-25, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, and 15-11. Negrito's setting prowess was on full display as she led all qualified setters with an impressive average of 4.65 sets per frame. Her performance not only solidified her position as one of the league's top setters but also earned her the well-deserved Best Setter award for the PVL 2024 All-Filipino Conference.

Negrito's teammates also shone throughout the tournament, with Jema Galanza being named the Finals MVP for her crucial role in leading Creamline to the championship. Galanza, along with Sisi Rondina of the Flying Titans, shared the Best Outside Spiker award for their outstanding spiking success rates of 31.13% and 34.20%, respectively. Creamline's Pangs Panaga and Choco Mucho's Maddie Madayag were recognized as the Best Middle Blockers, while Petro Gazz's Aiza Maizo-Pontillas claimed the Best Opposite Spiker award.

Brooke Van Sickle of Petro Gazz crowned as the Most Valuable Player (MVP), despite her team not reaching the finals. Van Sickle topped the league in total points scored with an impressive 293 points. "You know it's a six-man sport. I wouldn't be able to do it without them and this is icing on top (of the) podium finish. It was good. You gotta start somewhere," Van Sickle remarked, acknowledging the importance of teamwork in her success.

As the PVL 2024 All-Filipino Conference comes to a close, Kyle Negrito's exceptional performance and leadership have solidified her status as one of the league's most talented setters.
