          Though winning in the South-East Asian league is a great milestone reached, these Olivarian athletes are still looking for more and higher leagues, not just in SEA, but also in the World League.

In academics, there are also doing good in their specific field of expertise. There were also given, by the DPRO administrators, academic leeway for them to be able to catch up with their missed school activities.
