UAAP grants ‘super seniors’ one more year


Super seniors who could not play during the University Athletic Association of the Philippines’ 82nd season will have another shot at glory. 

The league’s Board of Trustees has approved the extension of eligibility for student-athletes who are in their final year and on the official lineup, but were unable to either finish their events or saw their tournaments suspended.

Spin.ph first reported the development.

“Kumbaga may plus-one sila,” revealed outgoing league president Em Fernandez.

Cancelled or abandoned events include volleyball, football, baseball, softball, athletics, lawn tennis, and 3×3 basketball. Super seniors that were able to play in 5-on-5 but not in 3×3 will no longer be eligible for Season 83.

For women’s volleyball, Ateneo’s Kat Tolentino, Jho Maraguinot, and Jamie Lavitoria; La Salle’s Aduke Ogunsaya and Tin Tiamzon; UP’s Isa Molde, Tots Carlos, and Maristela Layug; and NU’s Risa Sato will still be eligible for next season.

From champion squads, Adamson Softball’s Arianne Vallestero, Jeanette Rusia, and Nichole Padasas; La Salle’s baseball’s Diego Lozano; and NU Men’s Volleyball’s Ricky Marcos, Edward Camposano, and James Natividad will have a chance to retain their crowns.

“Everybody will be given a chance, and last season won’t be counted as a playing year for them.”
