The UAAP Taekwondo meet concluded last November 9 with La Salle reclaiming the bronze in the women’s division while finishing fifth on the men’s side.
The Lady Jins stole a bevy of awards led by captain Lovely Avanceña who got gold for the Women’s Lightweight Division. Newcomer Akila Gabrielle Boloto finished first in the Women’s Welterweight Division and was hailed this season’s Rookie of the Year. Shanelle Romuar and Gab Yuchingtat finished third and second, respectively.
Green Jin Jian Gutierrez took home the silver in the Men’s Fin Weight Division. Last year’s Rookie of the Year Alvaro Aranton emerged once more to cop the gold for Men’s Middle/Heavy Weight Division.
La Salle earned podium finishes in the UAAP Swimming competition which ended last weekend. They finished second and third in the men’s and women’s division respectively.
Though both teams fell short to score the championship, they continued to bring strong performances in order to propel their way to podium finishes. The difficulty of encountering stronger opponents this season is nothing compared to the positive outlook and mental toughness they had.
After the culmination of this year’s competition, head coach Evan Grabador is happy with his team’s efforts and is already positively looking forward to next season. Grabador shares, “Hopefully ma–improve pa namin yung placenamin and I’m very happy sa men’s and women’s team dahil nag–step up sila, lalo na on the last day.”
