Altas tap Carino as volley coach

MACKY Carino has been appointed as Perpetual Help’s executive volleyball director and women’s coach recently.

Carino gave up his job as coach of the St. Benilde Lady Blazers, a team he steered to the NCAA championship two seasons ago, to take over as overall in charge of Perpetual Help’s volleyball program as well as mentor of the Lady Altas in the coming NCAA volley wars starting Jan. 4 next year.

“I resigned to assume a bigger role, which is to handle not only the women’s volleyball team but Perpetual Help’s volleyball program as a whole,” said Carino.

Carino will succeed Sammy Acaylar, who was promoted as the school’s athletic director a year ago.

Acaylar has opted to stay as men’s volley coach.

“Perpetual Help already has a strong volleyball program and I’m here to just continue it and hopefully make some improvements,” said Carino.

Acaylar, responsible for the bulk of the 10 men’s, nine juniors and three women’s titles, said he is optimistic Carino can handle the job.

“Everybody knows he (Carino) is my protégé and I’m confident he can do the job well, maybe even better,” he said.

St. Benilde men’s coach Arnold Laniog will handle the Lady Blazers on an interim basis.
