1st DPA InterBatch Basketball League

1st DPA InterBatch Basketball League
July 29, 2012

After 13 years, we stepped in again in our high school Alma Mater Del Pilar Academy. We remembered things we shared, places we hangouts, teachers we really missed and changes happened to the school after 13 years. 

Why we went to Delpa? Because of the Inter Batch Basketball League, to support our batch ’99 basketball team (Dream Team). And who are the supporters? If I’m not mistaken we are only 5 namely (Julia, Jessica, Catleah, Lyjie and Me).

All though it is raining the program continue and the show must go on what ever happens and like what organizers said “This is a Blessings”. We all agreed with the organizers and amazed to all former students in different batches came and witness this first ever event.

I've watched the Fourth game (August 19, 2012) with high school bath mates, At first I know Batch 99 will win over batch  2006. But I was wrong, although same energy for both team but they have different strategy. I think on the next game the team should learned from the past game in terms of offense and strategy in time of tied game and you have less than a minute and in offense. But nevertheless, that was a nice game and I know that the team is happy what ever happened and off course their batch supporters. 

Sixth game, Batch '99 won against Batch 2008 - it was a toughed game although some players of batch '99 concluded that they will not win in that game. Why? because batch 2008 is one of the best team in the competition. But what we said that everything is possible just have faith and believe in their strength and team effort.
