MANILA, Philippines — “We want more.”

College of St. Benilde coach Jerry Yee made this declaration Sunday, moments after his Lady Blazers extended their dynastic reign with an 11-game sweep of NCAA Season 99 women’s volleyball at the Filoil EcoOil Arena.

“Greedy kami, ganyan naman talaga gusto lahat ng coaches, iayos program, manalo,” said Yee, who has steered the Taft-based school to 40 straight wins, including three magnificent 11-game sweeps.

CSB, however, will lose four major building blocks as reigning MVP and best setter Cloanne Mondonedo, newly minted Finals MVP Gayle Pascual, Jade Gentapa and Michelle Gamit have played their final game for the school.

Yee wasn’t bothered at all though, saying he still has some talented players coming in to fill those massive voids.

“Meron tayo Qatari at iba pang players naka residency. Okay naman tayo, ‘yun naman talaga job natin,” he said.

He mentioned team captain Jessa Dorog and Wielyn Estoque as part of next year’s team eyeing to keep their unbeaten run.

“Si Estoque, si Dorog andyan for exposure today (Sunday), kahit championship,” he said.

Of course, Mycah Go, the Season 97 MVP, will have another year left.

The St. Benilde dynasty may be in for a longer haul.
