I’m saying NO to the new UAAP rule forcing UAAP HS graduates to sit out 2 years as part of residency if they transfer to a different UAAP school. As a group of educational institutions, UAAP has no right to stop students from pursuing better quality of education and/or sports programs. If a HS student intends to transfer to a different school for whatever reason, the school has no right block the door. They may TRY to persuade the student to stay, but that shoud be it. A HS student must not be punished and forced to sit out 2 years for wanting something better for himself.
Let’s all hope that the UAAP Board re-evaulates this non-sense ruling.
NO TO NEW UAAP RULE!

THe Lady Spikers made sure to seal the deal last week on Game 2 of their Finals series against their bitter rivals, the Ateneo Lady Eagles. Unlike their first meeting in the Finals, the Taft-based Spikers made sure to end Game 2 in just 3 sets, 25-23, 25-20,25-16, in front of around 19,000 fans.
Ateneo was led by the league’s best scorer, Alyssa Valdez, but unfortunately, she got very little help from her team as no other Eagle scored in double figures.
La Salle on the other hand was led by sophomore Mika Reyes with 16 points. Co-MVP awardees Abi Marano and Ara Galang chipped in 12 points each. Michele Gumabao tallied just 6 points, but was eventually awarded the Finals MVP becuase of her good overall performance in the series.
De La Salle has finally won it’s first UAAP General Championship this season. After 14 long years of dominance, UST was finally ousted from the top by the Green and White squad. La Salle has been a part of UAAP for more than 25 years now and season 75 marks the first time that La Salle will take home the General Championship Crown.
Special thanks to all La Sallian athletes, champion team or not, you all deserve to raise the GC this season. You are the reason for this amazing feat. To the coaches, managers and all support groups of the teams, may you continue to provide your wisdom and guidance to the players, not just as athletes, but as young adults who will be facing the real world in the future.
To us supporters, let’s continue to support our school even if the season is about to close. There are other leagues that La Salle will join and let’s make sure to provide the same support that we gave them during the UAAP season.
kudos to the entire DLSU Community. ANIMO La Salle!
