Ateneo at 4th Spot in UAAP General Tally
The Ateneo de Manila University gathered a total of 117 points for the UAAP General Championship after competing in a total of 7 sports in the first semester. Leading the race is host school UST with 161 points, followed by DLSU with 149 points and UP with 123 points. We are 23 points behind last year's first semester output at 140 points despite the improvement in Men's Badminton (3rd to 2nd), Women's Taekwondo (6th to 3rd) and Men's Basketball (3rd to 2nd). We dropped in the rankings for Men's Beach Volleyball (1st to 6th), Women's Beach Volleyball (3rd to 4th), Women's Basketball (2nd to 6th), Men's Taekwondo (6th to 7th), Men's Judo (1st to 2nd), and Women's Swimming (1st to 2nd).
There are 7 more sports we will be competing in during the 2nd semester. We expect our teams for Men's and Women's Volleyball, Men's and Women's Football, Men's and Women's Tennis and Baseball to have strong performances that will boost our overall ranking.
