Jins, softbelle are UAAP's top athletes

By Marlon C. Magtira | Mar. 24, 2013 at 12:00am
UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas taekwondo jins Christian Al dela Cruz and Juan Miguel Ramos, and Adamson softball star Michelle Lentija will share this year’s billing as the Season 75 Athletes of the Year in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines.

They will be feted along the league’s top student-athletes in rites which formally close the season today at the SM City North EDSA Skydome.

Student-athletes from De La Salle University, the newly crowned general champion in the seniors division, and UST, the juniors' overall title holder, will also be given recognition in when the ceremony starts at 2 p.m.

The DLSU Green Archers, who claimed their first-ever overall crown, ended the Growling Tigers’ 14-year reign, highlighted by the remarkable ‘three-peat’ feat by their women’s volleyball team.

DLSU President AND Chancellor Br. Ricardo Laguda FSC said in a statement that “the whole 75th UAAP season was a result of teamwork, hard work, and discipline from each team to raise the level of excellence in sports. Indeed, the whole season was a season of blessings and thanksgiving.”

DLSU won five championship titles in the women’s division including volleyball, chess, table tennis, taekwondo and tennis.

The University also garnered additional points for placing second in women’s basketball, men’s swimming, men’s table tennis, men’s taekwondo, and women’s football. DLSU also finished third place in 11 different sports divisions.

The closing ceremonies will also be highlighted by the third edition of the streetdance competition, where La Salle Dance Company Street is the defending champion.

Season 75 president Nilo Ocampo of host National University will then lead the closing ceremonies and will turn over the UAAP flag symbolic of the general host of next season to Adamson’s Fr. Max Rendon. Peter Atencio
