Congratulations to the Ateneo Lady Eagles Volleyball team for winning the Shakey's V League championship vs. the Adamson Lady Falcons. Valdez, Cainglet, Ferrer, Lazaro, Patnongon and Thai guest player Khesenee played with great skill and confidence. The team will be a force to contend with in the coming UAAP season.

Ano ba naman yan?...... pati ba sa sports, mado-dominate na rin ng mga babae? I have quiety accepted being called an "Atenista" and not "Atenisto" ...... but scaling the same peaks as men in terms of sports excellence, aba sobra na yata yan!

Ateneo did NOT have a tradition of female sports excellence. There was a time when the college covered courts was a totally male bastion and that no one ever cared to look at someone wearing shorts. (If someone looked long enough, suntukan na yan.) Guys who wanted to play pa-cute would escort the co-eds who would try to dribble or shoot the ball and that's about the extent of female sports in Loyola Heights.

At that time, the females were content at dominating academics .... receiving more than their share of dean's list slots, summa cum laudes, departmental awards, presidencies of extra-curricular activities ..... the fairer sex had conquered the campus and the males were smiling and content. When asked why this was so, I heard an administration representative exclaim that the Ateneo had the pick of all the all-female high schools (Poveda, St. Paul's etc) while the males tended to go to the connected college of their original alma mater. So the female population was the cream. I didn't buy that explanation.

I thought that the females performed well in the classrooms only because the guys were distracted at ogling at them.

It's been quite a while ... I think the first female batch was 1978 .... so 27 years ...... finally, we had the first female UAAP champions. After a year, another one followed. And just like the rest of the alumni, we were mesmerized that these ladies could not only dribble the ball ... but could now go all the way to the championship. Carolyn Tanchi - basketball champ AND summa cum laude. Wow.

So, what's this? Even the holy grail - the female volleyball championship - might soon be achieved by the lovely ladies. I guess it's inevitable. They've come a long way, baby. My only regret, is that they don't wear the one-piece uniform of a few years ago.

With Father Jett Villarin assuming the presidency, I guess I'll have to write him a letter. Given the dominance of the ladies in academics and now in sports, we'll have to change the school name to Atene-a de Manila. To those complaining that we'll be under da saya, I keep replying: that's the best place to be!

Congrats to the volleyball team. You make us proud. More power to you.

Slight correction, the first female class in ADMU started school year 73/74. Private joke then was that Baby Dalupan accepted the coaching responsibilities of the Blue Eagles only if ADMU agreed to accept her pretty daughter, Tai, for college. Bwahahahah!

So .... this was your time, eh? Me, I just heard about it from my older brothers .... kuno!

Sir, if you read my post carefully, I said "batch 78" which refers to their graduation date, not year of their entering the hallowed grounds of the Ateneo College (which lacked enough comfort rooms for the ladies.) This batch must've been the most pampered, conscious, center-of-attention co-eds because then, males outnumbered them maybe 10-1. Today, that thrill is gone .....

But as I said, the character of the Ateneo has changed with the infusion of female pulchritude. For the better .....

You have to admit, and I'm sure Coach Roger Gorayeb will agree with me, that Charo Soriano is a vast improvement as coach ..... on the beauty aspect. Beauty and brains and brawn ..... whatta combination. Be still my beating heart ......
