We covered an interesting and relatively young sport in our last feature. This time, we’re going for a change of pace – and venue – as we dive right in with the UPCM Swim Team!
The Swim Team is led by the youngest team captains among all our teams. Sean Sy and Ryan Santiago are both direct entrants or IMEDs who are now in LU3 (Class 2023). Taahey share memories from their childhood and how they got into swimming, and how it has become an integral part of their lives. It is clear from their answers that they genuinely enjoy not just swimming, but also training with their teammates. If you’re the type who finds comfort in being in the water, then you might find that being part of the Swim Team is for you.

MVP (Meet our Varsity Players) is a series by UP Medics featuring the captains and leaders of our college’s dear varsity teams. Most people associate the word ‘varsity’ with sports teams, but by definition it is not limited to just sports. The word ‘varsity’ is defined as “the principal team representing a high school or college in a sport or other competition” in the Oxford English Dictionary. In that sense, it includes teams that represent a high school or college (or university, at that) in non-sports events, such as debates and choral or dance competitions.
To break the incomplete interpretation of the word ‘varsity’ that is predominant in our collective subconscious, we begin this MVP series by featuring the President and Choirmaster of none other than our beloved UP MedChoir. Let’s get to know our varsity teams!
