BIÑAN, Laguna—Philippine head coach Francis Vicente had a high vantage point as he watched his defensive ace Dawn Macandili claim the second Best Libero award in the AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship.

And as the national mentor looked on, he immediately knew a perpetual volleyball program for the country can produce more players like Dawn Macandili.

“This is why we need to just trust on a continuous program for a national team,” said Vicente Thursday at Alonte Sports Arena.

The Philippines team for the AVC and the upcoming Southeast Asian Games was formed just few months before the grueling August stretch.

Vicente added that other positions could also win individual awards in international tournaments and not just the Best Libero plum.

“Let’s be patient, let’s support the national team,” said Vicente. “For me we should all be united and stop the crab mentality that we drag other players down.”
