The F2 Logistics Cargo Movers added another superstar middle blocker to its stacked and talented active pool.
Ivy Lacsina, a part of the National University Lady Bulldogs’ historic undefeated championship squad during the last UAAP Women’s volleyball season, decided to turn professional and boost F2 Logistics’ bid for another championship.
Lacsina’s inclusion in the active roster of the Cargo Movers means that she will forego her final eligible playing year with NU in the upcoming UAAP season.
A few months ago, NU’s volleyball and athletic management confirmed that the core of the Lady Bulldogs’ championship team will all remain in a quest for a back-to-back championship but Lacsina’s dad denied the development.
Also, Lacsina wasn’t even a part of the Lady Bulldogs’ competing roster for the upcoming 2022 Shakey’s Volleyball Super League.
The towering middle blocker was already welcomed by the Cargo Movers on social media yesterday with the caption: “Let’s all give a warm welcome to a new member of the F2 Family. Welcome home Ivy!” posted F2 on their Twitter account.
Lacsina was one of the most consistent players during NU’s championship run and entered the top 15 rankings of the UAAP in scoring, blocking, and service aces.
The former member of the national team will team up with veteran superstars Aby Maraño, Majoy Baron, Kim Dy, Ara Galang, and Kim Fajardo.
Lacsina is expected to grace her debut season with the Cargo Movers when the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference kicks off this October.
