THERE’S no special reason with her jersey number, but Sta. Lucia team captain Pam Lastimosa just wanted to feel lucky.
SPIN Life had a short chat with the former University of Santo Tomas star on Tuesday during the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix at The Arena in San Juan.
“No significant something pero gusto ko lang may number eight,” she said.
The jersey that she wanted, however, belonged to their libero Rica Rivera last year and now to their import Molly Lohman.
Lastimosa had to give way which is why she's been using No. 18 for two years now.
It’s no big deal for her though, as long as she has her lucky number on her jersey.
“Feeling ko good luck [yung No. 8],” she said. “Number 18 kasi gusto ko may eight.”
If she had the opportunity, will she try to get the No. 8 next seasons?
“No, I’ll stay with No. 18 all the way na until siguro matapos na akong mag-volleyball, na-adapt ko na ang No. 18,” she said.
“So far, so good, lalo na this year 2019 ok naman. Lucky siya and I hope lucky siya all the way,” she added.
