Hosting Season 69 of UAAP

The University of the East was the host of the 69th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, the eighth time for UE to host the UAAP. UE’s latest UAAP hosting stint coincided with UE's 60th Foundation Anniversary, its Diamond Jubilee.

UE’s sports teams scored several victories prior to the start of the new UAAP season. These include the individual victories of UE athletes in the 23rd Southeast Asian Games, which in turn contributed to the country’s overall championship in last December’s SEA Games. UE athletes earned several medals, including eight gold ones bagged by seven athletes in men’s gymnastics, women’s athletics, men’s fencing, women’s boxing and softball.

Leading UE’s achievements in the 68th UAAP season’s seniors division were the respective championships of its men’s and women’s fencing teams. The fifth UAAP championship for the men’s team, the first for the women’s team.

In the same season, UE earned the overall championship in the juniors division for the first time, thanks to the first place finishes of its chess team, boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams, table tennis team, and girls’ swimming team. UE high school student and chess prodigy Nelson Mariano III even won the juniors division’s Athlete of the Year award, his second consecutive time to earn the title.

The 69th season of the UAAP opened at the Big Dome in Cubao on Saturday, July 8, 2006, with opening ceremonies was led by UE P.E. Director and UAAP President Luz S. Sta. Ana. That year’s UAAP theme was “Achieving Excellence in Sports through Unity, Harmony and Commitment.” The production began with an opening number by the UE Dance Troup followed by the presentation of the UAAP colors representing the member schools. Pep squads of member schools also made their performances.

In extending their abiding support to their alma mater, former UE Red Warriors and Philippine basketball legends graced the ceremonies led by former Senator Robert, “the Big J” Jaworski, who also gave his short message to the athletes. Other former players includes “The Triggerman” Allan Caidic, Jerry Codiñera, and James Yap.
