Winning in the STRASUC Championship is not easy; it is not just an exceptionally special achievement. when a Regional Championship is won twice, it is even better and harder. Often the incredible back-to-back, regional championship is a dream that hardly ever comes true. All this triumph should be credited to the University, athletes, and coaches of different sports; without them this would not be possible, the sports Director, Mr. Darwin D. Ofrin says (D. Wagan).
