WHAT IS NEXT? La Salle to enjoy 9th title before worrying about future

De La Salle has a history of winning multiple titles, do the Lady Spikers have enough for Season 79?
Everytime De La Salle University wins a UAAP women's volleyball championship, one is not enough.
If coach Ramil De Jesus builds a title-worthy squad, that team is good to win multiple championships.
The Lady Spikers being the only team to win two three-peats in the Final Four era is proof of that.
However, La Salle's ninth title, all of which were under the supervision of De Jesus, feels a little different especially since half the core of the team will be graduating.
Former MVP Ara Galang, Cyd Demecillio and Queen of Swag Mika Reyes will be leaving DLSU's starting six among other graduating seniors.
But for De Jesus, he's going to worry about trying to win a 10th championship when he has to and instead focus on celebrating his ninth ring in the meantime.
"Di ko muna pino-problema, gusto ko enjoy muna itong moment na ito eh," the veteran coach said. "Kapag dumating na tsaka ako mamomroblema."
"Ngayon ito muna, ito muna. Ang tagal kasi naming hinintay ito," he added.
La Salle's Season 78 championsip was a culmination of a three year journey.
Ever since the Lady Spikers lost a thrice-to-beat advantage in Season 76, revenge against their rival Ateneo was the only thing in their minds.
They finally did it with an epic game 3 win Saturday.
Regarding on the actual future of the Lady Spikers, Taft still has Finals MVP Kim Dy leading the way and half of the Taft Towers, best blocker Majoy Baron, will still be there to guard the net.
Defensive dynamo Dawn Macandili will also be back while best setter Kim Fajardo still has one year of eligibility left.
