MANILA, Philippines – Action in the second half of the 75th Season of the UAAP heats up as athletics and softball tournaments kick off.

Far Eastern University looks to continue its reign in both the men and women’s division as the four-day track and field competition unfolds Tuesday at the PhilSports oval.

Spearheaded by reigning Athlete of the Year Rizza Bernardino, Adamson opens its campaign for a third straight softball crown against La Salle Tuesday at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.

The Lady Falcons, led by the key cogs of the Manila team which won the Big League Softball World Series in Kalamazoo, Michigan last August, are primed to bag their 12th championship overall.

The Tamaraws are aiming for a three-peat in men’s athletics while the Lady Tamaraws are shooting for their ninth consecutive title.

In the softball opener, University of the Philippines faces returning National University at 9 a.m. followed by the Adamson-La Salle tussle before Ateneo clashes with University of Santo Tomas in the main game at 3 p.m.

Meanwhile, Fencing is scheduled to open next week, while hostilities in baseball, chess and lawn tennis commence next month.
