After seven years, the Altas made it back to the title round after beating Letran in the semifinals last Tuesday.

Jeremiah Macias III downed CJ Mestiola 6-0, 6-4 in the singles event, while the pair of Kenneth Dumapit and Jayson Saavedra defeated the duo of Francis Sebumpan and Cholo Quintia 6-3, 6-2 in doubles.

The team of coach Samuel Nuguit will face the College of St. Benilde Blazers in the finals Thursday. CSB dethroned San Beda University in the other semis match.

“Finally we are back in Finals after many years, hopefully we get the plum, paghihirapan namin ito, but we’re ready against College of St. Benilde,” said Nuguit, whose team’s last title was during Season 88 back in 2013 with Russell Arcilla Jr, Kim Sazara, Kim Polero and Ric Solon.
