DLSU varsity players gathered together for one last time to celebrate their 2nd place overall achievement in Season ’71 of the UAAP.

And what a fitting climax it was when the University in 98 years of its existence finally retired the number of a female athlete in honor of her achievement for God and the school community.

Ms Illa Santos, team captain of the champion wvb team, was publicly recognized by the University when she was awarded by Br Bernie Oca the privilege and honor of having her #14 formally retired from active use from this day on.

This is the first time in the history of the university to have an athlete, a female at that, of a team other than the men’s basketball being honored for her exemplary role as the most outstanding DLSU Lady Spiker of all time.

Before Illa was given this distinct recognition, only three (all from the Men’s Basktball Team) so far have been enlisted among the SPORTS LEGENDS of DLSU since 1911. Only four names hang on the rafters of the 9th floor of the DLSU SPORTS CENTER.
