Flashback: The 1998 Championship

It’s been 10 years since the Green Archers won their first of four consecutive UAAP championships. Who could not forget this memorable game wherein we finally buried the stigma of four consecutive runner-up finishes the seasons before. The entire DLSU community was all so ecstatic to see the end of the “Bridesmaid Era”. As a student back then, I consider this as the best championship year ever. After all the heartaches of previous years, this victory was indeed very special for the school.

Of course this was also the last time fans could storm into the Araneta Coliseum playing court in jubilation since the venue was renovated the following year wherein a new expensive floor was installed. I am proud to be part of that crowd who charged into the playing court. The feeling is truly priceless.
