Sta. Lucia bared the new faces of the squad on Saturday ahead of the forthcoming 2020 Philippine SuperLiga (PSL) Grand Prix.
In a promotional video released via their social media accounts, the Lady Realtors officially rolled their carpet for their seven recruits and nine returnees along with their foreign reinforcement for the import-laden conference.
“In finding the balance between the holdovers and the reinforcements, the past and the present, the strength and the grace, the losses and the experiences, the wins and the hard work, we will create #thenewSTALUCIA. Rising soon at the @SuperLigaPH!” Sta. Lucia wrote.

Tubino, Pineda, Cheng, and Gannaban all made their return to PSL after playing in the rival league last season.
Sta. Lucia also welcomed Canadian women’s volleyball national team spiker Shainah Joseph, who is tipped to carry the team to new heights.
