Ateneo Sports Hall of fame Induction

  Ateneo Sports Hall of Famers

Fritz Gaston wrote the Ateneo Sports Hall of Fame and he mentioned the value and contributions of Olsen Racela as an integral part of the  1988 Ateneo Blue Eagles and as a result, the ASHOF eventually included him as one of the 10 Ateneans inducted to the Ateneo Sports Hall of Fame.  Racela was originally listed as one of the athletes who will be given a citation but Gaston’s recommendation made the difference.

 Olsen's Family

Racela together with fellow Ateneo High School 1987 batch mate Danny Francisco was one of four members of the 1987-1988 Back to Back UAAP champion team that made it this year. The other two members inducted of that 1988 team were point guard Jun Reyes and power forward Eric Reyes.   That brings to eight the number of cagers inducted on that team with Nonoy Chuatico, Jet Nieto, Sep Canlas and Alex Araneta are the four others who were inducted in 2009.

The night was filled with a lot of legends specially the teams i saw while I was in grade school and the team I rooted for in college.  The core of the 1975 – 1976 powerhouse back to back NCAA champion team was there namely Fritz Gaston, Joy Carpio, Padim Israel, Chito Narvasa, Maling Estrella and Steve Watson.  The 5-peat Ateneo Blue Eagles were also there to cheer on the Hall of Famers.

Whether you are searching for specialty styling
products or specific Loreal hair products,
you are sure to find what you need. My hair doesn't always look good when I'm going to attend
openings and red carpet events. The product should be one that
is made for your type of hair, whether it be dry,
oily, curly or straight.

When applied in cool, wet weather, it can cause
burning of the leaves and the russeting of fruit. Due to the popularity of organic gardening, organic potting soil and
compost are available at most garden centers.
Each has his own concoction of soapy water, tobacco juice or
hot pepper solutions to to deter these nasty pests and try those first.

If you don't see any bugs or if you can't determine
the reason why the plant is looking sick, take a sample in
to the local county extension office. Due to
the popularity of organic gardening, organic potting soil and compost are available at most
garden centers. Wood can be used as long as it's not treated with chemicals.

Many people argue that eating too many plants grown with commercial fertilizers or pesticides can cause health
problems. So, I propose to you that you might want to consider doing your
own organic gardening right in your own back yard.
This will give them time to acclimate to their new environment, avoiding stress and shock
often associated with transplanting, ensuring a healthy start.
