It's the human and fun side of our sports heroes

Who is Stalzer’s first best friend in Manila?


We may know Lindsay Stalzer now as the woman who is spearheading Petron’s Grand Prix campaign. We may know her as well for being the centerpiece of Foton’s back-to-back titles in the same tourney.

But she had her start in Cignal HD, back in the 2014 edition of the Grand Prix.

Nice photo from the weekend. First game first win! Proud of team Cignal! #redspandex

In this pre-tournament interview with broadcaster ESPN 5, Stalzer revealed Jheck Dionela to be her first friend upon arriving in Manila.

Lindsay’s Petron handily beat Jheck’s HD Spikers back in their Grand Prix preliminary match last Oct. 28.

They may be on opposite sides of the court now, but here is a throwback to Stalzer’s good times with the HD Spikers, courtesy of her first friend.
