About the MLSC[edit]

The Moro Lorenzo Sports Center or MLSC is under the management of the Blue Eagle Management, Inc. (BEMI). It is named after Luis Francisco "Moro" Lorenzo, who was one of the school’s successful basketball players.

Designed purely for training purposes, it houses an indoor basketball court, an indoor track oval and training gyms, all using Regupol flooring - which is the low-impact rubberized surface athletes prefer. In addition to this, the MLSC has a sports medicine clinic.

The MLSC has a lot of spaces, which actually follow cross-training disciplines. There are areas for aerobic activity, spaces to stretch, tone and strengthen in, a health bar to grab energy food from, and coves in which to relax and cool down. On the ground floor one can easily locate the Prayer Room of the saints, the Sports Medicine Unit, the Health & Fitness Center, and the Michael L. Escaler Sports Hall of Fame, all along one single-loaded corridor. For refreshments, the MLSC has the newly established Cafe Azul, frequented by athletes and students alike.

Up one level is a basketball court that is used by the school's varsity teams, as well as PBA teams, and the badminton courts. Half a floor up, are the locker rooms, audio-visual room and the Marco Lorenzo Weights Room, with Hammer Strength equipment. A full floor above the courts is the two-lane, 200-meter track oval, which provides a view around the entire court area. Finally, on a mezzanine above it is the martial arts area.
