BULPRISA 2014: College Marians Never Say: Stop!
By: Justin Louie V. Alba
It was the time of the year when Marians harness their skills in various fields of competition. They showed off their perseverance, determination and the true Marian spirit in events participated in by different private schools in Bulacan.
As a former varsity player, I can say that it’s not really easy to represent a school. Too much pressure is being put on your shoulders. Aside from the desire to win, not everybody will understand what you do for the school and why you do it. It is also not easy being a student and an athlete at the same time. The absences from class, missed lessons, make-up classes a player has to do, the grades that you have to maintain, and the training that you have to endure are what comprise the life of a student who represents the school.
Nevertheless it is really quite an honor for someone to represent the school, whether they win or they lose, pride and recognition is always given to the participants who always give their best, time and effort.
Marians who have joined the BULPRISA 2014 performed remarkably in the cultural and the athletic field. We may not always bring home the highest of awards but no one can underestimate the desire of a Marian to improve and do better for the next competition.
Among the participants who joined the cultural events were the following:
Jeremy Gamboa – Sanaysay
James Mendoza – Poster making
Eloisa De Guzman – Talumpating handa
Mikkee Legaspi – Declamation
Mellisa Cabael – Vocal Solo
Lorieann Mariano & Warren Cabuhat – Vocal Duet
And the Sports participants were:
Mark Luther Pasco
Chess: Nikko Manalo
Marc Anthony Co
Congratulations to all the participants! Let us continue the Marian Spirit!
