“We are proud of what FAITH has done in the last 10 years and are honored that we were able to host the 13th NCAA South. Thanks for all your support,” said FAITH president Saturnino Belen of the hosting that coincided with the school’s 10th anniversary.

“It is my privilege – and relief – to hand over the NCAA flag to San Beda-Alabang,” said Belen, drawing chuckles from the audience, while giving the NCAA South banner to San Beda Alabang rector-president, Dom Clement Ma. Roque.

“I promise that San Beda College-Alabang will continue the tradition of excellence in hosting  the 13th edition of the NCAA South,” said Dom Roque during the simple turnover rites held at the FAITH audtitorium in Tanauan, Batangas.

“The hosting of the NCAA South has been a learning experience and emphasizes the importance of sports in an academic environment,” said Belen, “and as a means of uplifting the country as what football and (Manny) Pacquiao have done.”

On the other hand, Dom Roque said: “Like what FAITH did, we will try to our best  to come up with a good program for the development of sports south of Manila.”

He added that 13th NCAA South hostilities would fire off sometime in August.

Letran tried to come back late in the game, but their attacks were stopped by the great defense of the Lipa-based booters.

John Lester Pagaspas scored Letran’s lone goal.

La Salle and Letran forged the finals showdown after defeating Season 12 host FAITH  and San Beda College Alabang respectively during the semifinals.
