NCAA Season 95 has officially closed, Wednesday.
And with it, Arellano University has officially transferred hosting duties for Season 96 to Colegio de San Juan de Letran.
In a Viber conversation among all member schools, Arellano University president Francisco Paulino Cayco formally turned over the hosting of NCAA Season 96 to Letran.
“Colegio de San Juan de Letran graciously accepts the hosting duties of NCAA 96,” the statement of Letran president and rector Fr. Clarence Marquez, OP.
“We express our heartfelt gratitude to Arellano University for their excellent leadership of NCAA 95, and to our fellow member schools for their solid and steady support.”
The NCAA saw Season 95 cut short by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic last March 19.
Events that were cancelled or outright not played were indoor volleyball, football, lawn tennis, soft tennis, track and field, under-15 basketball, and beach volleyball, as well as the cheerdance competition.
Currently, the Management Committee of the Grand Old League is looking at a June 2021 start for Season 96. The priority of the league is to play out its four mandatory sports, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and track and field.
Letran has vowed to “shep[h]erd the NCAA, to rise to the challenge of promoting youth empowerment and excellence through sports.”
“Soon, the plans for NCAA Season 96 shall be presented, observing the ‘new normal,’ assuring our students, supporters, followers and fans about safety and health standards of events and venues, showcasing our quality camaraderie and competition, instilling discipline, inspiring us with the best performances of our school teams and student-athletes.”
Other recommendations of the ManCom to the league’s Policy Board include extending the eligibility of student-athletes who have not played their respective events.
