Haydee Ong, Topex Robinson, NU coaches to be feted with Coach of the Year awards


The Collegiate Press Corps (CPC) will honor seven of the best coaches at the collegiate level, including mentors in volleyball and women’s basketball for the first time, during its annual Awards Night presented by San Miguel Corporation at Discovery Suites Manila in Ortigas on June 17.

The CPC added five more recipients of the prestigious Coach of the Year (COTY) Awards following UAAP Season 86 and NCAA Season 99, joining the group’s list of staple recognitions headlined by mentors from men’s basketball.

Haydee Ong of University of Santo Tomas will be hailed as the UAAP Women’s Basketball COTY after leading the Growling Tigresses to their first UAAP title in 16 years.

UST ended the seven-peat reign of the National University Lady Bulldogs.

The CPC will also honor the stellar rise of volleyball coaches in both collegiate leagues for the first time, in the grand ceremony backed by Discovery Suites as the official venue partner and Jockey as a minor sponsor.
