Adamson sweeps women’s open and club titles in Asaphil Grand Slam softball tilt

ADAMSON claimed two titles in the 10th Summer Grand Slam tournament at the Batangas Sports Complex.

The Lady Falcons overcame University of the Philippines, 7-6, to retain the Women’s Open championship.

It was an all-Adamson battle for the Women’s Club crown, with AdU-C nipping AdU-B, 8-7.

The Philippine Air Force, meanwhile, sustained its top form from the elims to the finals, clobbering the visiting Indonesian team, 9-2, to keep the Men’s Open plum in the tournament sanctioned by the Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines.

The San Antonio Bobcats survived Rizal Technological University, 5-4, to complete a back-to-back title run in the Men’s Club division of the annual event sponsored by Cebuana Lhuillier.

Close to 50 squads, including teams from Indonesia and Malaysia, saw action in the tournament.

"The 10th year of the Summer Grand Slam has been nothing short of exhilarating. While some did better than the others, every team stepped up their game and delivered their best performance,” said Asaphil president Jean Henri Lhuillier.

“The high level of competition this year was an excellent way to celebrate a decade of this tournament. I'm looking forward to supporting softball in the Philippines and to empowering more athletes in the coming years."
