/ 10:20 PM January 31, 2012

MANILA, Philippines—University of Perpetual’s men’s and women’s teams overpowered their respective foes to barge into the championship round in the 87th NCAA volleyball tournament at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Altas, the reigning champions, walloped the Arellano U Chiefs, 25-17, 25-20, 25-17, to arrange a best-of-three title showdown with the San Beda Lions, who made it through with a 25-16, 25-21, 25-21 win over the St. Benilde Blazers.

The Lady Altas, out to win it all after failing to win it all last season, likewise was emphatic as they thumped down the Letran Lady Knights, 25-16, 25-19, 25-15, to arrange their own championship duel in the women’s side.


That put both the Perpetual Help teams closer to a title sweep.

“We’ve accomplished our first goal, which is to make the finals,” said Lady Altas coach Mike Rafael in Filipino. “Now we’re hoping to achieve our biggest goal, which is to win it all.”
