Athletic historyEdit

The pre-war NCAA was established by a very sports-minded De La Salle Brother named Brother John Lynam FSC. The De La Salle Green Archers were a founding member of the NCAA in 1924. La Salle participated in the league for 57 years until the 1980–81 NCAA Season winning five NCAA General Championships in the process (1972, 1974, 1976, 1977, and 1980). The high school (juniors' division) counterpart were the Greenies from De La Salle College High School until 1968 when the then High School in Taft Avenue, Manila was phased-out and transferred to the then new Green Hills Ortigas Campus in Mandaluyong City. The Greenies had won two General Championships. La Salle Green Hills (LSGH) was established in 1959 and was eventually made the high school counterpart of De La Salle College. It inherited the moniker Greenies and eventually became known as the Junior Archers. LSGH won eight General Championships until 1981 when La Salle withdrew from the NCAA.

From 1981 through 1985 the school participated in the PICUAA, invitational meets, interclub tournaments, and the National Open. De La Salle University (DLSU) then joined the UAAP in 1986.[1] La Salle chose the newly established De La Salle Santiago Zobel School (DLSZ) as their UAAP Juniors counterpart. LSGH was later asked by De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde to compete as their juniors team in the NCAA when it applied and was accepted in 1998. Ever since joining the UAAP in 1986, DLSU has won three UAAP General Championships – Season 75 (2012–13),[2] Season 76 (2013–14),[3] and Season 78 (2015–16),[4] giving the university a combined eight General Championship titles in the seniors' division in both the NCAA and UAAP. Notable Lasallian athletes and alumni are inducted into the De La Salle Alumni Association (DLSAA) Sports Hall of Fame.[5]

Men's footballEdit

Since the pre-war days, the school has an unprecedented record in the world's most popular sport. Football was also reported to be the most popular sport in the Philippines in the 1920s and 1930s and shortly after World War II. De La Salle has the most number of football championships in Philippine NCAA history with a total of 21 collegiate championships.[11] The high school team has 30 championship trophies. The school's golden era of football was from 1932 through 1940 when La Salle was the Senior division NCAA 9-peat champion, considered by some to be a highly unbreakable record. The golden era featured Virgilio Lobregat, Rafael Ygoa, Totit Valles, Peping Campos, Ling Miranda, Mimi Heredia, Nono Crespo, Adi Manzano, Gorda de Larrazabal, Leo Prieto, Quinito Ortigas, Petuguis Herrera, Paulino Ugarte, Charlie Russel, Jiki Garcia, Jave Javellana, Bulilit Reyes, Richard Tillman, and Kastila Ynunciaga. La Salle was also the Senior division 6-peat champion from 1971 through 1977. The De La Salle NCAA Senior Champion Team during this 1971 to 1977 period had the likes of then concurrent Philippine Team National Players namely Inaki Vicente, Mike Moran, Danny Moran, Robs Delfino and Inaki Alvarez. The Juniors team was 5-peat champion twice from 1937 through 1941 and 1971 through 1976. The school was a 4-peat NCAA double champions in both Junior and Senior divisions from 1937 through 1940. La Salle was also 5-peat NCAA double champions in both Junior and Senior divisions from 1971 through 1976. DLSU left the NCAA after the 1980–81 Season and eventually transferred to the UAAP.

In the UAAP, the men's team has won 4 titles while the women's team has won 11 titles and were 4-peat champions from 2003 through 2006. The DLSU men's football team captured its first ever solo UAAP championship via a rare sweep in 1994–95. The team was bannered by national team mainstay and league MVP Tuteng Marasigan, Jay Pascual, Tats Ramos, Panky Abijay, Carlo Blanco, Teo Ocampo, JM Pons, Javi Manticon, Dennis Villanueva, rookie standouts Christian Lozano, and Albe Aparilla, and coached by Hans Smit.

As it was in the 1991–92 season, DLSU was declared joint UAAP champions with UST after a fight broke loose during the final minutes of the game with DLSU leading 2–1, both goals scored by Cocoy Rojas. This team was bannered by veterans Gerard Araw, Mon Sandejas, Sammy Mubarak, Marbon Gonzales, Gurpreet Samrow, Paolo Relucio, Carlo Manalo, Tuteng Marasigan together with the most talented rookie class headed by Tats Ramos, Cocoy Rojas, Javi Legarda, and Rufino Gutierrez.

In the 1993–94 season, La Salle lost to UST 4–0 in the championship game but most of the awards were garnered by the Green Archers led by their rookie sensation, Panky Abijay who was voted as the Best Scorer for that season scoring 17 goals in 10 games, followed by Tats Ramos as the Best Goalie and Tuteng Marasigan as the Best Midfielder. The following season, La Salle dethroned UST to win its second UAAP championship title.

In the 1995–96 UAAP season, the team however failed to defend its championship losing to arch-rival Ateneo de Manila University in a heartbreaking loss in the Finals. Ateneo entered the Finals with a twice-to-beat advantage by topping the eliminations round. La Salle took Game 1 of the Finals series 2–1 to arrange the final showdown, but lost 2–1 to the Vince Santos-powered Ateneo team.

The following year, Coach Hans revamped the DLSU lineup and enhanced the team with several rookies and sophomores. The team included rookies William Paradies, Torto Canga, Jon Chua, Joey Mapa, Dave Javellana, Jun Sola, Peter Amores and Dodee Molina to complement holdovers Alvin Ocampo, Christian Lozano, Norman Azarcon, JM Pons, Owens Sun, Albe Aparilla, Byron Rempillo, Theo Zaragoza and LJ Villanueva. The team topped the eliminations round and this time had the twice-to-beat advantage in the rematch with Ateneo in the Finals. DLSU however did not allow the Finals to reach a 2nd game and recaptured the 1996–97 crown via a 2–1 victory, courtesy of goals by midfielders Norman Azarcon and Albe Aparilla.

With a near intact line-up and key additions such as the comebacking Francis Feliciano and Dennis Villanueva to anchor the defense and rookie goal keeper Ted Guinto, DLSU successfully defended its crown in the 1997–98 season and captured back-to-back championships. This year DLSU again took the twice-to-beat advantage leading into the Finals, however Ateneo took Game 1 via a 2–1 victory. DLSU however regrouped in time for the deciding match. Ateneo took the lead early via a header from Ramon Espejo in the first half and kept the 1–0 lead at halftime. The second half was a completely different story, with DLSU unleashing its true scoring form, taking 5 straight goals in the second half to take the title once again via a 5–1 hammering of its arch-rival. Alvin Ocampo and Christian Lozano took co-MVP honors.[12]
