SEE YOU IN SEASON 81: The UAAP will formally close an exciting, thrilling and memorable Season 80 on Wednesday.
The UAAP will pay tribute to the league's past and current student-athletes when Season 80 officially closes its curtains Wednesday at the Far Eastern University Auditorium inside the FEU Morayta campus.
The short ceremony, which will start at 4:30 p.m., will focus the league's greats over the years and will be highlighted by the awarding of the Athletes of the Year.
The league will also honor the athlete-scholars who not only excelled in sports but also in academics.
The general championship winners in the seniors and juniors division will also be announced, following by the turnover of FEU to National University as the league's next host.
NU then will make an introductory teaser of the Season 81 logo right after accepting the hosting chores.
The Athlete of the Year will come from a MVP from among the league's 28 events from 15 sports, with credentials for competing internationally as a plus to win the biggest honors.
There will be two AoYs in college and high school - one for team sports and one for individual sports.
Last season, Adamson University softball standout Angelie Ursabia and Ateneo swimming star Aldo Batungbacal shared the limelight by winning the seniors Athlete of the Year honors.
In the juniors division, De La Salle-Zobel tanker Nikki Pamintuan and NU volleyball stalwart Lorence Cruz took home the AoYs honors.
