The UAAP Season 82 interactive yearbook features stories about champion teams, student-athletes who represented the country in the SEA Games, and much more

UAAP Season 82 is one for the books.

Literally.

The UAAP commemorated Season 82 with an interactive yearbook that details what transpired from the opening ceremony up to the cancellation of the second semester events due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“For Season 82 of the UAAP, what started out as an exciting season turned out to be the shortest one in recent history,” said UAAP Season 82 president Emmanuel Fernandez of Ateneo.

“However, it will also be remembered for the amazing performances displayed by our most promising student-athletes.”

The yearbook includes stories about champion teams, among them the Ateneo Blue Eagles completing an improbable 16-0 sweep of the men’s basketball tournament.

Featured in the yearbook as well are UAAP players who represented the country in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games and the student-athletes who were not able to see action due to the season cancellation.

The book can be accessed through Shift Interactive’s website (http://shift-interactive.com/dev/uaap_digital_book/digital-book/).

Living up to the season theme of “All For More,” the yearbook also highlights the contributions of all 8 member schools to affected communities of the pandemic.

“May you enjoy the stories that each page tells as a testimony to what our best student-athletes have achieved and will continue to achieve,” Fernandez said. – Rappler.com
