Season 75 of the UAAP came to a festive close with La Salle bagging its first general championship and University of the Philippines  copping its first street dance championship yesterday at SM North Skydome.

Boosted by the victories of its women’s teams, La Salle took the overall seniors crown with a total of 293 points, ending University of Santo Tomas’ 14-year reign.

UP, though, spoiled La Salle’s bid of closing its amazing year with another title by ruling the street dance competition with a score of 91.17 percent.

Looking snappy in its  maroon and black get-up, the UP Street Dance Club ended La Salle Dance Company Street’s two-year rule to bag the P100,000 cash prize.

“We just wanted to show in our routine that we’re versatile,” said UP co-captain Kyle Sy.

La Salle finished second to win  P75,000 with a score of 86.75 percent  while Adamson was third by garnering 84.25 percent.
During the ceremony, Adamson softball star Michelle Lentija and UST taekwondo jins Christian Al dela Cruz and Juan Miguel Ramos also received the Athlete of the Year awards.

    Yesterday in your article you highlighted more the individual honors to be received by athletes at the close of the UAAP season, and then you later wrote, ” and also, La Salle will be awarded the general championship..”. You also emphasized that La Salle won it because of its womens teams bagging several titles. Today, you reported and headlined UP winning over La Salle in the streetdance competition and again mentioned La Salle won the general championship because of its womens teams. So bagging the general championship by saying “also” is merely coincidental and are you trying to imply its no big deal La Salle won the general championship cause if not for its womens teams it woouldnt have bagged the title??? Are you reporting a news or are you expressing your personal anti feelings over La Salle then??
