On this issue, the soon-to-be-historic rookie class of 2011 gets down and dirty as this issue’s resident cover guys. The UAAP’s rising stars also show us what it means to be a champion: the long hours of struggle, the effort to balance tough school work with the discipline and dedication of sports, and finally, breaking through to win the ultimate prize.
Eight of the UAAP’s star volleybelles also show the stuff they’re made of on and off the court while former UAAP athlete and athletics queen Elma Muros looks back on the years she spent as a collegiate athlete and the lessons she learned that she’s now trying to pass on to a new generation of tracksters.
Courtside charmers from the not-so-distant past reminisce on their good old UAAP days. Looking back on his time with Ateneo’s basketball and baseball teams, Kirk Long also reflects on his journey and thinks about where he wants to go next.
Also, feel the thrill of this year’s UAAP with the limited-edition UAAP hand sanitizers, available in Watsons outlets in Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon. It comes with a sanitizer holder, which can be hung in bags and is available in eight colors, representing each UAAP member team—Blue Eagles, Green Archers, Fighting Maroons, Growling Tigers, Tamaraws, Red Warriors, Bulldogs and Soaring Falcons. For every purchase, a portion goes to UAAP’s fund for its athlete scholars.
