The De La Salle Green Archers (also La Salle Green Archers) is the men's varsity team representing De La Salle University. The women's team is referred to as the De La Salle Lady Archers, and the Juniors' teams De La Salle Junior Archers. The program participates in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, among others. La Salle's current rival is the Ateneo de Manila University, a rivalry that has raged, as claimed, as early as 1939, when both schools were still competing in the NCAA.[1] La Salle is represented in the high school level by De La Salle Zobel, and are known as the Zobel Junior Archers.

History

The De La Salle Green Archers was a founding member of the NCAA Philippines in 1924. La Salle participated in the league for 57 years winning 5 NCAA General Championships in the process (1939,1947, 1956, 1971, and 1974). The high school (Juniors' division) counterpart was the De La Salle Greenies until 1968 when De La Salle High School was dissolved. The Greenies had won 2 General Championships. La Salle Green Hills (LSGH) was established in 1959 and was eventually made the high school counterpart of De La Salle. It inherited the moniker Greenies and eventually became known as the Junior Archers. LSGH won 8 General Championships until 1980 when La Salle withdrew from the NCAA.

From 1981 through 1985 the school participated in the PICUAA, invitational meets, interclub tournaments, and National Open.

De La Salle University (DLSU) then joined the UAAP but was rejected after Ateneo and UST voted against La Salle's membership.[2] La Salle was eventually accepted in 1986. La Salle was forced to drop LSGH as their Juniors' team as a prerequisite to their membership in the UAAP and picked the newly-established De La Salle Zobel (DLSZ). LSGH was later asked by De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde to compete as their Juniors' team in the NCAA when it applied and was accepted in 1998. De La Salle-College of St. Benilde has since then won 3 NCAA General Championships and LSGH 4 General Championships in the NCAA since their re-entry (giving LSGH 12 General Championship titles). Both DLSU and DLSZ have yet to win a General Championship in the UAAP.

ANIMO (La Sallian Spirit)

The La Sallian "spirit to fight" is known as Animo.[3] This originates from 325 years of "Faith and Zeal" of the La Sallian Christian Brothers [4]. Animo also connotes a One La Salle with the elements of team work, courage and purpose to make a difference through helping others, inspiration from the accomplishments of the institution, purpose, and vitality. The school colors are Green and White. Green was a tribute to the first batch of De La Salle Christian Brothers from Ireland and White representing the Philippines as the "Pearl of the Orient Seas". The Green Archer is the official athletic name of the school inspired by St. Jean-Baptiste de la Salle. This was accordingly adopted owing to the precision shooting of the players of the school's first NCAA basketball champion team of 1939. The official mascots have been "Gordo", the fat archer, "Flaco", the thin archer, and "Sally", the lady archer. The timeless and popular Alma Mater hymn is Hail to De La Salle. This originated in 1961 when Bro. Stephen Malachy, F.S.C. played a small harmonica and introduced the song he composed with Bro. Bonaventure Richard, F.S.C., to a graphics class.[5] The tradition of singing the Alma Mater hymn by La Sallians after a match, alumni homecoming, or gathering was eventually adopted by other schools. La Salle has had its school band play and entertain during various periods of its athletic history. It has had a colorful and energetic cheerleading squad over the years. Its popular fight songs and cheers have included "Go La Salle",[6] "When La Salle Goes Marching In", "Victory Song", "Rektikano", "Zama Zipa Zam", "La Salle Spelling", "Derecho La Salle", and "Animo La Salle".

Men's Basketball

The school has won 5 NCAA basketball titles (1939, 1947, 1956, 1971, and 1974). Its powerhouse basketball teams won the coveted National Seniors Open Championship, a league participated by top commercial and college teams, twice in 1939 and 1949.[7][8] After bolting out of the NCAA in 1980, it participated in various tournaments. The Green Archers won the 1983 PABL Championship and 1983 National Open title.[9] The school won the 1988 Philippine Inter-collegiate Championship, the precursor of the Collegiate Champions League. This was later reformatted to become the current Philippine Collegiate Championship with La Salle being the first title holder in 2008. La Salle has also won 7 UAAP basketball titles (1989, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2007). It has appeared in the finals 13 times in its 22 years in the league. La Salle is also known for its 4-peat UAAP championship from 1998-2001.

La Salle's basketball program has produced its crop of national players and coaches. Among its revered players include Ramoncito Campos, Eddie Decena, Manolet Araneta, Kurt Bachmann, Lim Eng Beng, Ricardo Brown, Dindo Pumaren, Jun Limpot, Mark Telan, Don Carlos Allado, Ren-Ren Ritualo, and Mac Cardona. Its great coaches have included Chito Calvo, Leo Prieto, Tito Eduque, Ron Jacobs, Manong Derek Pumaren, Jong Uichico, and Franz Pumaren.

Its most recent UAAP championship was in 2007, with their most recent finals appearance being in 2008, only losing to rival Ateneo. La Salle won the Philippine Collegiate Championship (PCC) in 2008 after defeating Ateneo in the finals. The tournament has the same format as the US NCAA Division 1 Men's basketball tournament. College teams from all over the country participate in this officially sanctioned tournament by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP). The school's current head coach is Dindo Pumaren, who has succeeded his brother, Franz Pumaren.

La Salle would have won its 8th UAAP basketball title in 1991 after winning a controversial championship game against FEU.[10] A La Salle player with 5 fouls was mistakenly allowed by the officials table to play for less than 10 seconds. La Salle also had the twice to beat advantage in the championship series and would have been the outright champion. However, FEU protested the outcome of the game. The UAAP Board then ordered an entire rematch. La Salle took the stand that it was the responsibility of the officiating table. The protest was taken up by the FIBA, the highest international governing body in basketball. FIBA and the BAP supported La Salle's stand on the issue.[11] La Salle did not appear on the replay date. FEU by default was declared winner of that game. In spite of the twice to beat advantage of La Salle, FEU was given the UAAP title without scheduling Game 2. Sports fans continue to debate the issue with some considering it an "asterisk title" for FEU.

The school also won the UAAP basketball championship finals in 2004. However, it unknowingly fielded two basketball players in its Men's team. In an unprecedented act of truthfulness and integrity in the history of Philippine college basketball, on October 10, 2005, the University officially revealed to the newspapers of player ineligibility. A then current La Salle player, Mark Benitez, was discovered by the institution itself to be ineligible to continue to study in the university and therefore play in the UAAP. In November 2005, after concluding the university's official internal investigation and submitting its official report to the UAAP Board, the University returned its 2004 UAAP Senior Basketball championship and 2005 runner-up trophies.[citation needed] La Salle also voluntarily admitted, that a second Green Archer, Tim Gatchalian, also used spurious documents to enter college rendering himself ineligible to continue to study in the university and play in the UAAP. La Salle later both expelled Benitez and Gatchalian, and cancelled all their previously earned college credits after due official investigation.[citation needed]In a letter addressed to the UAAP, De La Salle informed the league of their intent to take a leave from men's basketball.[12] The UAAP rejected this move and unanimously voted to suspend De La Salle from all UAAP events (in the senior and junior divisions) for the succeeding 2006-2007 (69th) season due to negligence.[citation needed] The UAAP board also decided to award the 2004 Seniors Basketball crown to the Far Eastern University Tamaraws. This unparalleled act by La Salle provoked calls for other schools to come out with their "skeletons in the closets".

ICTSI Archers

On October 10, 2001, the Green Archers officially made their PBL debut as its newest team under the banner of ICTSI La Salle. ICTSI also recruited players from other collegiate squads, namely James Yap of the University of the East and Bernzon Franco of Philippine Christian University. The team was handled by Archers head coach Franz Pumaren with chief assistant Jojo Villapando and assistants Gee Abanilla and Jack Santiago.

ICTSI was able to keep up with other PBL power houses in Blu, John O, and Ateneo Pioneers to name a few. After eliminating the Ateneo Pioneers in the semifinals, the Archers lost to the much more experienced John O team in the finals.In its second conference, ICTSI acquired new key players in Green Archers Mac Cardona and Joseph Yeo. The team managed to make it to the cross over round against the LBC Batangas Blades who eventually eliminated them. After a short leave of absence in the PBL Unity Cup, ICTSI made its return in the 2005 conference wherein they made it to the quarterfinals only to be eliminated by the Welcoat Paintmasters.

Men's Football (Soccer)

The school has an unprecedented record in the world's most popular sport. Football was also reported to be the most popular sport in the Philippines in the 1920s and 1930s and shortly after World War II. De La Salle has the most number of football championships in Philippine NCAA history with a total of 21 collegiate championships.[14] The high school team has 30 championship trophies. The school's golden era of football was from 1932 through 1940 when La Salle was the Senior division 9-peat champion, considered by some to be a highly unbreakable record. La Salle was also the Senior division 6-peat champion from 1971 through 1977. The Juniors team was 5-peat champion twice from 1937 through 1941 and 1971 through 1976. La Salle was the 5-peat NCAA double champions in both Junior and Senior divisions from 1971 through 1976. The school was also the 4-peat NCAA double champions in both Junior and Senior divisions from 1937 through 1940. DLSU left the NCAA in 1981 and eventually transferred to the UAAP.

The Men's team has won 3 UAAP titles.[15] The Women's team has won 5 UAAP titles as 5-peat champions from 2001 through 2005. The DLSU men's football team captured its first ever solo UAAP championship via a rare sweep in 1994-95. The team was bannered by national team mainstay and league MVP Tuteng Marasigan, Jay Pascual, Tats Ramos, Panky Abijay, Carlo Blanco, Teo Ocampo, JM Pons, Javi Manticon, Dennis Villanueva, rookie standouts Christian Lozano, and Albe Aparilla, and coached by Hans Smit.

As it was in the 1990-91 season, DLSU was declared joint UAAP champions with UST after a fight broke loose during the final minutes of the game with DLSU leading 2-1, both goals scored by Cocoy Rojas. This team was bannered by veterans Gerard Araw, Mon Sandejas, Sammy Mubarak, Marbon Gonzales, Gurpreet Samrow, Paolo Relucio, Carlo Manalo, Tuteng Marasigan together with the most talented rookie class headed by Tats Ramos, Cocoy Rojas, Javi Legarda, and Rufino Gutierrez.

In the 1993-1994 season, La Salle lost to UST 4-0 in the championship game but with most of the awards were garnered by the Green Archer led by their rookie sensation, Panky Abijay who was voted as the Best Scorer for that season. Scoring 17 goals in 10 games followed by Tats Ramos as the Best Goalie and Tuteng Marasigan as the Best Midfielder.

In 1995-96 UAAP season, the team however failed to defend its championship losing to arch-rival Ateneo de Manila University in a heartbreaking loss in the finals. Ateneo entered the finals with a twice to beat advantage by topping the eliminations round. La Salle took game 1 of the finals series 2-1 to arrange the final showdown, but lost 2-1 to the Vince Santos powered Ateneo team.

The following year, Coach Hans revamped the DLSU lineup and enhanced the team with several rookies and sophomores. The team included rookies William Paradies, Torto Canga, Jon Chua, Joey Mapa, Dave Javellana, Jun Sola, Peter Amores and Dodee Molina to complement holdovers Alvin Ocampo, Christian Lozano, Norman Azarcon, JM Pons, Owens Sun, Albe Aparilla, Byron Rempillo, Theo Zaragoza and LJ Villanueva. The team topped the eliminations round and this time had the twice to beat advantage in the re-match with Ateneo in the Finals. DLSU however did not allow the finals to reach a 2nd game and re-captured the 1996-97 crown via a 2-1 victory, courtesy of goals by midfielders Norman Azarcon and Albe Aparilla.

With a near intact line-up and key additions like the comebacking Francis Feliciano and Dennis Villanueva to anchor the defense and rookie goal keeper Ted Guinto DLSU successfully defending its crown in 1997-98 and captured back-to-back championships. This year DLSU again took the twice to beat advantage leading into the finals series, however Ateneo took game 1 via a 2-1 victory. DLSU however regrouped in time for the deciding match. Ateneo took the lead early via a header from Ramon Espejo in the first half and kept the 1-0 lead at halftime. The second half was a completely different story, with DLSU unleashing its true scoring form, taking 5 straight goals in the second half to take the title once again via a 5-1 hammering of its archrival. Alvin Ocampo and Christian Lozano took co-MVP honors.
