Heartstrong Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS Passarelle Team lost by a point against the towering St. Robert's International School quintet, 48-47 in the roller coaster final match held Saturday, September 24 at the Iloilo Sports Complex. Amid the loss, the sixth men on the court--the hundreds of alumni, students, parents, faculty, and friends--raised their hands and sang the school hymn with pride and dignity, a testament to the Jesuit school's sense of community and sportsmanship. Indeed, "win or lose, it's the school we choose!"
Meanwhile, the miniature Ateneo SBP Team also had a valiant charge against the formidable Hua Siong College of Iloilo but went short, 39-33, in the grade school category final match.
We salute all the sixth men for keeping the Ateneo spirit burning against all odds, for tapping the shoulders of their player-schoolmates after the game, and for exiting the sports complex with a graceful smile and a hopeful disposition. We also give our three thumbs-up to our student-athletes, coaches, and players' parents/guardians for their passion to excel and selfless dedication for the team and for the school.
Whatever happens, let us continue to pursue excellence ignited by love and service! In Omnibus Amare et Servire Domino!
