Ateneo joined the Asian Regional Competition for the first time in December 2000, in Singapore, and came out twelfth position among 36 teams from all over Asia. We were the best team from the Philippines but only twelfth best in Asia. We joined again in November, 2002 at the UAP-Manila regionals, and came up to seventh place, and again we were the best team from the Philippines, beating the teams from U.P, DLSU, UAP, and others.
