The attached photo is 99% Betan Singers where Brod Divinagracia is seated in front row 5th from the left. Please ask Brod Cornejo if I am correct? I directed the Musical Close Up 1 & Close Up 2 at UPLB where Perfing Palacio, Divinagracia (forgot his first name), Pap Amador and other Bicolanos were stars of the show (ask Brod Freddie Fajardo). I would appreciate it very much if the participants in the photo can be identified. I also remember Don Ganchorre as one of the stars. -- Regards, FrankG

Attached is a picture of our 1962-1963 UP Varsity Basketball team where we had six Beta Sigmans as part of that team - Lionel Logronio (#16), Freddie de Leon (#18), Jun Gomez (#12) Marianito Cruz(#11), Joe Rebano (#8) and Sammy Bautista (to the left of JoeReb).

I recall the 62-62 team also did very creditably in the UAAP that season. If my memory serves me right - we ended up in a triple tie for first place in the second round but missed the playoff for first losing to UST/UE by a foul throw, a costly heartbreaking miss by Alandy.

Kind regards,


*Web note (NormB): I recognized Dave Perez (kneeling leftmost), who would join UPD Batch'64, and asked JoeReb to confirm. And JoeReb's reply: "That's Great info Brod Norman - that makes 7 - the # of current and future Betans in d 62-63 UP Team. Dave was our captain ball then. I wil c if he is stil with UP Tarlac."
