MANILA, Philippines—Perpetual Help shoots for a two-division title sweep of the 87th National Collegiate Athletic Association volleyball tournament Monday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Lady Altas go for the clincher against the Lady Knights of Letran at 3:30 p.m. hoping to put up a strong performance after getting pushed to the limit in Game 1.
