Eager to keep up with the championship-caliber teams in the Philippine Superliga, Sta. Lucia has put more depth to its already potent arsenal by acquiring the services of Marist Layug.
The Lady Realtors welcomed their newest acquisition through its social media accounts on Wednesday.
Layug, 21, recently suited up for University of the Philippines in the now-truncated UAAP Season 82, and Motolite in the Premier Volleyball League last year.
The 5-foot-10 middle blocker is expected to pump more firepower to Sta. Lucia’s offensive line that includes Mika Reyes, MJ Phillips, Pam Lastimosa, Glaudine Troncoso, and Amy Ahomiro.
She will be a valuable piece for head coach Eddieson Orcullo, who is looking to steer the franchise to a breakthrough title.
The Lady Realtors have been facing a promising period of regeneration following a recruitment coup at the start of the year.
After leaving a good impression of their revamped roster in the PSL Imus City Mayor Maliksi Super Cup: Spike for a Cause, they went undefeated across two matches in the now-truncated 2020 Grand Prix, giving a glimpse of what could have been a fruitful season.
The PSL has cancelled the 2020 Grand Prix. The start of the All-Filipino Conference remains up in the air.
