University of Perpetual Help System Dalta and Lyceum of the Philippines University dispute the remaining Finals berth in the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament at the Filoil EcoOil Centre Wednesday.

The winner of the 2 p.m. match will face titleholder College of Saint Benilde in the best-of-three series starting April 11.

The Lady Altas are eyeing their first championship round stint since 2019, while the Lady Pirates are seeking to make more history after achieving a breakthrough Final Four stint.

Arellano University and San Beda clash for the right to face Perpetual in the men’s Finals at 12 noon.

The Lady Altas finished second behind the Lady Blazers with a 8-1 record, a major turnaround from last season’s 2-6 campaign.

LPU, on the other hand, won the first step-ladder match at the expense of Mapua, 25-18, 25-23, 29-31, 27-25, last Tuesday.

Things won’t be easy for the Lady Pirates in making another milestone.

Perpetual topped LPU, 25-21, 25-13, 25-22, in the elims and will enter the do-or-die match as favorites.

Coach Cromwel Garcia has a simple promise for his team.

“Ang Lady Pirates po ay lalaban ulit,” said Garcia.
