Due to the expected heavy rainfall that will be brought about by typhoon Ompong, the UAAP Board of Trustees has decided to postpone all its sporting events on Saturday, September 15.
UST, host of the Chess tournament, were supposed to open the season’s Chess Championships this weekend but decided to move it a week later.
The defending champions in the Men’s Division are the NU Bulldogs, who are gunning for a fourth straight title, while in the distaff side, the DLSU Lady Woodpushers are the reigning queens.
Over at basketball, NU’s Nilo Ocampo has announced that all four UAAP Seniors Basketball games have been cancelled as well.
The UST Growling Tigresses (0-1) were supposed to take on the DLSU Lady Archers (1-0) to open the day at the SMART Araneta Coliseum, before the Patrick Aquino and the NU Lady Bulldogs (1-0) face former Perlas player and now Adamson Lady Falcons head coach Ewon Arayi at 10:00am.
Over at the men’s side, the Ateneo Blue Eagles (1-1) and the FEU Tamaraws (1-1) will face off for the first time in the UAAP since their epic semifinals series last season. The Adamson Soaring Falcons (1-0) would then face their tormentors DLSU Green Archers (0-1) in the main game.
The Chess tournament will instead open on Wednesday, September 19, while the Basketball games will be moved to a later date.
