UAAP season over: ‘Sakit sa heart’
Athletes, courtside reporters, and former league stars react to the abrupt end of UAAP Season 82



MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The UAAP community received a heartbreaking announcement on Tuesday, April 7, as the league decided to terminate Season 82.

Before the cancelation, league action had been put on hold since March 10 due to the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

Volleyball players were quick to react, with many clearly devastated like UST stalwart Ej Laure, who had hoped for a major comeback after a two-year layoff in women’s volleyball action. 








FEU volleyball standout Carly Hernandez describes the suspension as more painful than a breakup.







Athletes from other events also expressed their disappointment.





Former UAAP players and Season 82 courtside reporters also reacted, with league stars like Sisi Rondina, the beach and indoor volleyball MVP last season, saying that “everything happens for a reason” and TV host and former Ateneo standout Gretchen Ho noting that the suspension is the “right decision.”
