“Ateneo Men’s Track and Field Team Makes Historic Podium Finish”
by James Gregorio
Last season, one week prior to the actual competition, former Ateneo Men’s Track and Field Team captain Robert Sargan (IV AB IS) was injured in a freak accident during training. Although the other 19 members stepped up to the challenge to make up for the absence of their prized pole vaulter and decathlete, they missed the mark to a third place finish by only 4.5 points.
Since Ateneo joined the UAAP league in 1978, the men’s track and field team has never tasted a podium finish. The highest that the team ever attained was 4th place in 1982, 2002 and 2005. This year, 20 athletes were ready to go toe-to-toe with their rivals from other UAAP schools in a quest to finally reach the podium.
