Adamson destroys UP, claims fifth straight UAAP softball tiara
MANILA, Philippines–Perfection just got a personification.
It was another perfect season for Adamson University as they tore University of the Philippines into pieces, 10-0, to claim their fifth straight UAAP Softball title Thursday morning at the Rizal Baseball Stadium.
Not only did Adamson notch their fifth straight crown, they also chalked up their 62nd straight victory across five seasons.
Lady Falcons head coach Ana Santiago said her young team had to mature to go into their fifth title run.
“What was important was their will for this year,” Santiago said who also had her ninth title after 11 seasons with the coaching staff of Adamson. “All the players have that will, but what’s important is their will to prepare.”
“The moment they stand up and walk to the field, they should tell themselves that they are winners.”
And win they did.
Queeny Sabobo went for a screamer toward the center field for a closing home run bringing along Krisna Paguican to the home plate in the top of the seventh inning.
Santiago also admired UP’s resilience as her players had to put down a “fighter.”
