    The Dasmarinas Cavite-based club swept all of its five games from a 3-0 finish in Pool B, followed by a five-set conquest over VNS in the semifinal on Friday, where they played without coach Norman Miguel and his staff.

    “Sobra kaming masaya na nagchampion kami tapos against mostly national team players and coaches. Proud kami na naging successful kami sa tournament na ito at yun naman talaga ang goal namin. With all humility, we still congratulate Go For Gold,” said Miguel.

    Calado, the 20-year-old spiker, capped his phenomenal stint with 18 points leading another Monarchs’ balanced attack to overcome John Vic De Guzman’s 22-point explosion for Air Force.

    Rosales built a formidable net defense providing eight of the team’s 16 blocks and finished with 13 points. Gampong also scored 13 including the momentum-changing hits in the second set, while Arnold Bautista added 11 markers.
