The Top Ten Blog Posts of 2011

As another year draws to a close, we present to you Go Archers’ top ten blog posts of 2011.
We rounded up the posts that we feel have made the biggest impact to the readers and visitors this year.

Here they are in no particular order.

10. Sweep Redemption for Lady Spikers

It was a dominating season for the women’s volleyball team as they finished the season “undefeated” en route to their 6th UAAP championship. On record, the team has one loss due to forfeiture but this did not hamper the girls’ determination to reclaim the title that slipped away a season ago.

9. Green Archers’ struggles from the foul line

We provided a statistical analysis on an area that has been plaguing the team for the last couple of years and has cost them a lot of close games.

8. La Salle defeats Ateneo in preseason

The Green Archers have got the Blue Eagles’ number in the last 5 preseason tournaments. Aside from the Fil-Oil, they also defeated them in an exhibition match in Dubai. Let’s hope we could soon see the same results in the games that really matter.

7. The return of LA Revilla

The steady playmaker made a triumphant return to the team after being away for two years due to health issues.

6. Free-Throw Shooting betrays Archers in loss to Falcons

This loss was more than likely the turning point in the wrong direction for the Green Archers. They went 2-6 since then.

5. Green Archers lose to last place UE

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the Archers. They not only lose to the lowly Red Warriors but they also lost Yutien Andrada to an ACL injury in this game.

4. Eagles add more woes to Archers’ already rough season

Ateneo inflicted the fatal blow to the team’s final four hopes. The talent disparity between the two squads has become quite obvious that this was perhaps the lowest attended La Salle-Ateneo game in years.

3. Hard-fighting Archers yield to Tams in last game

With nothing to play for except for pride, the Green Archers gave it their all in their final game. They went toe-to-toe with FEU for three quarters until the Tamaraws pulled away in the fourth period. This was also the final game for Simon Atkins and Maui Villanueva in a La Salle uniform.

2. LSGH’s magical playoff run

Behind Thomas Torres’ 35 points, La Salle Greenhills defeated Letran to enter the NCAA Juniors Finals for the first time since 1979. Though the Greenies lost to eventual champion San Beda in the championship series, their spectacular run towards the home stretch of the tournament gave the community something to cheer about even after the UAAP basketball season.

1. Gee Abanilla is the new head coach of the Green Archers

After almost two months of speculation, DLSU appointed Gee Abanilla as the new coach of the mens basketball team. Along with the coaching change is a new management group that will oversee the direction of the team.
