MANILA, Philippines — The Perpetual Help Lady Altas of head coach Micheal ‘Macky’ Cariño open their title bid against San Beda U Lionesses as NCAA women’s volleyball competition unfolds Friday at the Filoil Flying V Center.

Cariño will parade a rebuilt line-up on the exit of middle blocker Lourdes Clemente, now with La Salle Taft.

The Lady Altas are determined to relive their glory days with team captain Yanca Tripoli and setter Necelle Gual, outside spikers Cindy Imbo, Jhona Rosal, middle blockers Shyra Umandal and rookie Jenny Gaviola from St. Francis of Assisi College and libero Allysa Sangalang.

His talented rookies are Sandra Dayao from FEU Manila, 18-year-old Janie Padua from Eastern Pangasinan Agriculture College, Hannah Suico from Notra Dame of Dadiangas and Charina Scott from Naic, Cavite.

Other members of the team are setter Angielou Castillo, middle blocker Hershey Llorente and libero Jowie Albert Verzosa.

Last season, the Lady Altas brought a  7-2 win loss card  to the Final Four,   where they lost to the SBU Lionesses. The Las Piñas-based women’s volleybelles last won the title in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

“Very impressive ang pinakita ng mga bata nitong pre-season leagues like Premier League and Uni-Games in Dumaguete City. We are aiming first for the Final Four berth then ibang usapan na kapag nasa semis ka na.”  said Cariño.
