The Ateneo bonfire is lit.
Katipunan lights it up again.
Ateneo continued a grand tradition Saturday with yet another bonfire inside campus grounds to celebrate yet another UAAP title.
30 minutes before midnight, Ateneo FINALLY lights up its championship bonfire. The Blue Eagles handily won the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball Finals, sweeping surprise contender UP in two games #UAAP81 #BonfireofChampions | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/GezJsEjIBQ— Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) December 15, 2018
The Blue Eagles made it back-to-back a couple of weeks back, dominating the UP Fighting Maroons in a two-game sweep.
Ateneo’s Season 81 conquest is the school’s 10th UAAP championship and is the second of this impending dynasty. The Blue Eagles beat rival La Salle in three games in Season 80.
