Their latest acquisition is no less than Eli Soyud, who previously played for Motolite in the rival league. The announcement was made through the team’s social media accounts, specifically Facebook and Twitter.
In the post, the team bared that Soyud is already training with the Realtors and is soon suiting up for the team in the professional league.
Sta. Lucia is expected to join seven other stacked teams vying for the PSL Invitation Cup, which will commence run from September 24 to October 17.

Before deciding to play for the Realtors, Soyud maxed her collegiate playing years for the Adamson University. In her senior year in the UAAP Season 81, the opposite hitter averaged a little less than 10 points per game.
She will reunite with college teammate Joy Dacoron and other core members of the Sta. Lucia squad like Becca Rivera, Ruby de Leon, Pamela Lastimosa, Amanda Villanueva, among others.
