TO MARK their 10th season, the Inter-Scholastic Athletic Association (ISAA) will have an all-time high of 10 participating schools. This development comes after the league admitted three new members recently in time for their September 18 grand opening at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Trinity University of Asia, Treston International College and Immaculada Concepcion College will join FEATI University, La Consolacion College, Manila Adventist College, Manila Tytana Colleges, PATTS College of Aeronautics, Philippine Women’s University and Saint Dominic College of Asia. The newcomers hope to be immediately competitive in their maiden seasons.
Then known as Trinity College, the Stallions used to compete and win titles in other leagues and is now moving to revive their glory days. Meanwhile, this is the first time that the ICC Blue Hawks and Treston Golden Lions will join a major collegiate sports organization.
