    MACKY Carino is pleased to see the Perpetual Help Lady Altas now working well as a unit, and revealed that the key for him was getting on the same page as Cindy Imbo.

    “Simula dumating ako sa Perps, sobrang struggle ako dito eh. Sobrang pinagtiyagaan ko talaga,” Cariño said.

    “Sabi ko sa kanya, 'Day, hindi pwedeng nagko-kontrahan tayo sa ating dalawa. Dapat nagkakaintindihan tayong dalawa.' Kasi pina-realize ko sa kanya kung ano ang worth niya sa team.”

    Two years since taking over, Carino has steered the Lady Altas to the NCAA women’s volleyball finals, and is hoping Cariño would continue to be a good leader as they face Arellano in the series starting on Friday.

    “Siya kasi 'yung spark plug ng team. Sabi namin sa kanya, every time na papangit ang laro mo, nadadamay ang team. Every time na gaganda ang laro mo, nakakahawa ka eh, umaangat ng umaagat ang team. Pagka gusto mong manalo, mananalo 'yung team,” he added.

      Imbo vowed to do all she can to help the Lady Altas claim their first title since 2014.

      “Graduating na nga rin po ako, parang sobrang tinodo ko na po lahat. Kasi gustong-gusto ko po talagang pumasok sa finals, kung maari mag-champion po kami,” Imbo said.

      “Gustong-gusto po namin talagang manalo, lalong-lalo na po 'yung mga graduating,” said Imbo, who had a career-high 32 points in the second match against twice-to-beat St. Benilde — the second most by any Lady Altas since Honey Royse Tubino scored 35 in Perpetual’s last championship against Arellano in Season 89.

      “Parang nagtiwala lang ako sa sarili ko, sa mga teammates ko, na kaya po naming habulin 'yun. Wala po akong ibang sinabi sa kanila na, 'Sa amin 'to, at ibibigay po ng Panginoon ito,’” she added.
