CED 3-peats

By Allianah Bolotaulo | March 8, 2024

For the third consecutive time, the College of Engineering and Design (CED) Raptors emerged as the overall champions in the Silliman University (SU) Intramurals 2024 with 481 points.

The winners were announced during the closing program on March 2 at the Lamberto Macias Sports and Cultural Centre.  

Running behind CED were the  College of Business Administration (CBA) Golden Bees, College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Blazing Phoenixes, and Institute of Rehabilitative Sciences (IRS) Agilas who were named first runner-up, second runner-up, and third runner-up, respectively.

The Raptors won first place in events such as men’s table tennis, men’s volleyball, men’s softball, women’s basketball, ultimate frisbee, banner-making, DOTA 2, and Valorant. 

However, the men’s basketball team lost the top spot for the first time in seven years against CBA, while the women’s basketball team rallied to first place also against the same opposing team, 54-35.

On their win, team captain Dianne Marie Albina of the CED Raptors women’s basketball team and the game’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) said that, due to time constraints, they were not able to “practice well” on their game. 

“We just trusted each other and the chemistry was there, that’s why that was the result of the game,” she said. 

Defeated by the College of Arts and Sciences in the first game of a twice-to-beat advantage during the men’s volleyball championship match held, on March 1, at the Junior High School Court, the Raptors also secured the title in the rubber match the next day at the Monapil Court.

CED Governor Kristian Dave Agusin said that they started the intramurals with many challenges so they did not expect to be the overall champions early on. 

He said, “It was really a rough start for us. Unlike last year [when] we started with championships, we started this year with a lot of challenges… we [were] kind of pressured since there [were] a lot of colleges [that] already prepared last year.”

Agusin further expressed his gratitude for having “gifted, talented, [and] determined” athletes in their college. 

“I’m very very thankful for their cooperation and dedication and loyalty towards the college,” he said.
