SCC Divas, the only all-Filipina cricket team in Hong Kong, has branched out into volleyball and made its first foray into the competitive arena by joining the recently held LBC one-day league.

The team may have failed to win that competition, but still won for best muse and best uniform.

Josie Arimas, Divas team captain, said their joining the volleyball league came at the spur of the moment.

She said three of its players heard on Oct 28 that LBC was organizing a one-day league for the various Filipino volleyball teams in Hong Kong, just a week away.

“Let’s participate just for fun. We’ll use the Divas name, anyway we already have a numbered uniform,” Arimas said she told her players.

First, the Filipinas got permission from Divas manager Animesh Kulkarni to play volleyball using the team’s name and he agreed.

With just cricketers Jennifer Alumbro, Jackie Torete, Jona Eguid, Jessie Duque and Mae Oya who could play volleyball, Arimas said she had to import other Filipina volleybelles to join Team Divas.

The LBC league organizing committee announced there would be awards for the best uniform, best muse and best team, firing up the Divas’ enthusiasm.

Arimas said she scrambled to buy black shorts, as the cricketers wore long jogging pants, and find one key detail: a muse.

With only days to go before the Nov. 4 tournament, Arimas said she finally found someone who was willing to be the muse, an Ilongga named Aileen Macaya from Sham Tseng.

On the day of the league, the teams paraded with their muses before the matches got under way at Kowloon City Park.

The Divas lost their game in Bracket B, but did not go home empty-handed. Their inspired choice of outfit and muse helped made their day fun and fulfilling.
