Junior Altas make volley finals

Reigning titlist University of Perpetual Help downed Arellano University, 25-17, 20-25, 25-19, 25-17, yesterday to clinch the first finals berth in the 93rd NCAA juniors’ volleyball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan City.
Noel Michael Kampton led the way with 20 points, including 15 on kills, to help power the Junior Altas back into the best-of-three finale against the winner of the other Final Four match pitting Emilio Aguinaldo and Letran.
The Las Pinas-based school is gunning for a fourth straight crown and 11th overall, which would put it as the second most titled team in NCAA high school volleyball behind Letran, which has a league-best 14 championships.
In men’s action, Arellano University denied College of St. Benilde a title-repeat as it pulled off a 25-22, 28-26, 25-23 victory to advance to the finals against Uniiversity of Perpetual Help.
Christian dela Paz and Kevin Liberato combined for 27 points to help lift the Chiefs set up a best-of-three title showdown with the Altas, which got to the finals first after a nine-game elimination round sweep, on Friday.
The Squires, seeded fourth, spoiled a Perpetual-EAC title showdown, after it pulled off a shock 21-25, 25-20, 25-13, 25-13 win over the top-seeded Brigadiers to force a knockout duel for the last championship berth scheduled Friday.
