Just like College of St. Benilde, La Salle Greenhills is continuing with its commitment to its student-athetes.
In particular, the Jr. Blazers have not let go of its 45 scholar-athletes in the face of the continuing COVID-19 crisis.
“Still having them allows us to stay true to our mission of making education accessible amid these trying times,” LSGH Sports Program and Development Office Head Marvin Bienvenida said. “By supporting them to continue, they are afforded with the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and their skills which they will use not only to improve their lives, but to be of service to God and country.”
At present, all LSGH student-athletes are under Flexible Lasallian Education through Technology and Collaboration at Home (FLETCH), the school’s learner-driven collaborative experience through home-based online learning, for the first term while they will transition to blended learning for the second and third terms.
The Ortigas-based educational institution is home to 700 student-athletes studying from Grades 1 to 12 and seeing action in archery, badminton, baseball, basketball, chess, football, golf, karatedo, lawn tennis, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, track and field, and volleyball.
All of them have their full focus on online classes.
At the same time, they are also doing what they can to prepare for the next season.
LSGH currently counts the likes of national team swimmer Jalil Taguinod and booters Troy Limbo and Kyle Magdato as student-athletes.
