She is back.
American ace spiker and resident import Lindsay Stalzer returned to the country for her seventh straight Philippine SuperLiga (PSL) stint as she is set to reinforce F2 Logistics anew.
After falling short in the championship round last season, Stalzer is back with the Cargo Movers to settle some unfinished business when they compete in highly-anticipated 2020 PSL Grand Prix, which starts next month.
F2 Logistics officially unveiled the 35-year old outside hitter’s return to camp via its social media accounts as the grizzled veteran arrived in the country on Friday afternoon.

Stalzer, who towed the Cargo Movers to silver last year, will join a stacked local lineup composed of reigning All Filipino Conference MVP Kalei Mau and national team campaigners Aby Maraño, Majoy Baron and Dawn Macandili.
Also expected to help the two-time Most Valuable Player awardee are Ara Galang, Des Cheng, Mich Morente, Kim Dy and Kim Fajardo, who will make her comeback in the import-laden conference following her premature exit last season due to a finger injury.
With Stalzer, Mau and Baron leading the scoring charge, F2 Logistics eyes its first Grand Prix title since 2017 after finishing runner-up twice in a row to defending champions Petron in 2018 and 2019.

This marked Stalzer’s seventh consecutive year of playing in the country.
She saw her first PSL action in 2014 when she suited up for Cignal before powering Foton Tornadoes to back-to-back titles in 2015 and 2016.
Stalzer then joined Petron for the next two editions, contributing largely to the Blaze Spikers 2018 feat, before heading to F2 Logistics.
