De Leon to be playing asst coach for Sta. Lucia

Rubie De Leon has been tapped by Sta. Lucia to be its assistant coach.

The setter, who is a three-time Shakey's V-League Best Setter, will be part of the staff of newly-minted head coach Edgar Barroga.

The Lady Realtors made the announcement on their social media pages.

"The team is adjusting kasi," De Leon said. "We are going to try a new strategy kasama ang new coaching staff.

"With this, I think mas makaka-contribute ako sa team by guiding them lalo na ang setters."

De Leon only played a few games for the Lady Realtors in the PVL bubble as she cited that she was nursing a minor injury.

The 41-year-old though remains steadfast that she will continue playing, saying that retirement is still far from her mind.

"Ang gusto ko lang is kung magreretire man ako, I want to do it on my own terms." (DJ)
