Jerald Bautista leads the TEAM B Olympians
In an effort to further strengthen its team and make sure that the young guns are in line with the system of play of the STI College Olympians, we have decided to divide the team so that all will be able to get ample time to see action and eventually improve their play. This year the Olympians will be playing in the Father Martin's Cup with two teams as they prepare for the 11th NAASCU in July 2011. The goal is to toughen the young ones and to improve the players skills. For the Fr. Martin Cup both teams have equally distributed talents and neither one is better than the other.

In the first game last November 29, 2010, Team A beat the Informatics Icons while Team B succumbed to the superb play of the TIP Rangers. Two Olympians who were seldom used for various reasons during the 10th NAASCU Abby Chavez and Ivan Moreno spearheaded the win against the Informatics Icons by scattering 16 points apiece. Backing the two forwards was another seldom used guard Lester Bocablo whose 12 points helped the Olympians cause. On the other hand, the tall and strong TIP Rangers outplayed the visibly unorganized STI Team B. Leading the Olympians is returning forward Jerald Bautista who scored 21 points. JC Po added 13 points while 10th NAASCU Mythical 5 selectee RK Morales was in foul trouble and he eventually fouled out with just 8 markers to his name.
