The UPLB contingent was led by Virgilio B. Marilag, chair of the Department of Human Kinetics, and Myra Luz G. Abueg, varsity coordinator. A total of 151 student-athletes and 29 coaches and staff participated in this regional sports competition.

UPLB placed 9th overall out of 12 competing colleges and universities. 

Selwyn Robles, an instructor at DHK, pointed out the need for more support to the athletes and the coaches in the form of complete uniforms for the event, allowances before and during STRASUC, and incentives for medalists. 

Besides the sports competition, UPLB also participated in the STRASUC Culture and Arts Competition held at the Western Philippine University in Palawan on Nov. 11-14. Fifty-seven student performers and eight coaches and staff participated in the said activity. (Aletheia C. Araneta)
