Reignite your burning passion as the 93rd season of the NCAA starts!
The National Collegiate Athletic Association or NCAA, Celebrates its 93rd season in the Mall Of Asia Arena, July 8, Saturday. Teeming with fans from all over the Philippines, this event is grand, at most.
This year is special for us, the Sebastinians, as we are the current host of this hyped-up event.
Starting off the opening with a performance by the students of San Sebastian, a video projection was used to make a visual illusion. They showed a spectacular piece that wowed audience members and got off their seats.
A prayer through a song is what the San Sebastian Chamber Choir brought to the event, followed by the singing of the Philippine National anthem.
|Presidents of the participating schools were introduced to the people, including our very own Rev. Fr. Nemesio D. Tolentin, OAR.Rev. Fr. Tolentin gave a heart-warming and powerful message telling all schools to unite as one. The speech ended with a message that made us remember that truly “Greatness awaits one who recollects”|
Various performances were held after, including, Female artist of the year 2016, Morissette Amon, The San Sebastian College Recoletos Jammers, San Sebastian College Recoletos Pep Squad, and Pep Squads of the different NCAA member schools.
The Muses of the schools were introduced but what shocked the crowd the most was that San Sebastian had two muses, who are twins, isn’t that aMUSE-ing?
Next, the Athletes of the following competing schools were introduced which include: Arellano University, College of Saint Benilde, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Jose Rizal University, Collegio de San Juan de Letran, Lyceum of The Philippines University, Mapua University, Univeristy of Perpetual Help, San Beda College, and San Sebastian College Recoletos, because how would the NCAA competition start without the athletes who are competitors in the event.
|This event would not be properly opened without the pledge led by SSCR team captain, Ryan Paule Costelo, and the formal opening of the event by Rev. Fr. Nemesio D. Tolentin, OAR.|
