Adamson adopts theme “Greatness never ends”

By Peter Atencio | Mar. 31, 2013 at 09:01pm
OFFICIALS of incoming host Adamson University are hopeful that they will be able to sustain the gains they achieved in Season 75.

Fr. Max Rendon of  Adamson University said this after he  formally accepted the hosting rights of the 76th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines.

“Through the years, we have all witnessed how UAAP has grown tremendously in the field of training and development of athletes,” said Fr.  Rendon in a speech during the UAAP Season 76 closing ceremonies at the SM City North EDSA Skydome.

The coming season is set to  open on June 29, and  the host university has  chosen the theme “Greatness never ends.”

Rendon, who accepted the hosting rights from outgoing president Nilo Ocampo of National University,  noted that the league  enjoyed a banner year.

Organizers said record crowds showed up in women’s volleyball and that sports events attracted a strong following as well.

“Season 75 ushered in the rise of volleyball and football, giving UAAP fans and followers a lot more to look forward aside from the ultra-popular basketball event,” added Ocampo as he turned  over the UAAP flag to Rendon.

The closing ceremony also featured University of the Philippines winning its first-ever streetdance crown, ending La Salle’s two-year reign.

The league also honored Season 75 Athletes of the Year, Adamson softball star Michelle Lentija, University of Santo Tomas taekwondo jins Christian Al dela Cruz and Juan Miguel Ramos.

La Salle formally clinched its first-ever general championship in the seniors' division, with the University of Santo Tomas taking home the juniors' overall title.

The Green Archers ended the Growling Tigers’ 14-year dominance in the overall race, with title wins  in women’s volleyball, women’s lawn tennis, women’s chess, women’s taekwondo and women’s table tennis.
