Christ the King College sports enthusiasts and spectators once again gathered for this year’s Intramurals 2018. The activity kicked-off last September 18 and ended on the 22nd with the theme “Upholding the Ignacian-Marian Values of Faith, Excellence and Service through Sports”. The five-day Sports Fest started with a Paraliturgy initiated by the Campus Minister. A Street Parade around the City Proper followed, after which, the different delegations and delegation heads from both the Integrated Basic Education and College Department were presented by Mr. Maverick Daryl W. Napolereyes and Mr. Vlademir Geb P. Dobouzet respectively.
The atmosphere became more exciting as different athletes who have represented the school in regional and national level of competition led by Mr. Eric Franz G. Bacasnot lit the symbolic Urn which reminded all the athletes and participants to always seek the light of spirit, knowledge, and life in every game. Meanwhile, Mr. Vlademir Geb P. Dobouzet and Mr. June Anthony D. Guillena spearheaded the Oath of Officiating Officials and Oath of Amateurism respectively. The School’s Vice President for Academics, S. Ma. Felicisima L. Cruz RVM, then officially opened the CKC Intramurals 2018.
One of the highlights during the opening day was the Cheerdance Competition of both High School and College Department. The seven competing teams of the college department, BSA Chimera Maroons, BSBA Golden Tigers, BSSW Archangels, TEP Blue Phoenix, NIT Green Pythons, BSHRM Red Stallions and BSCRIM Purple Jaguars tightly battled each other for the Cheerdance Championship Title. Each team never failed to impress the crowd and the judges with their dynamic moves, extreme stunts, and nerve wrecking liftings. After three hours of intense performances from the seven competing teams, winners were declared, where the NIT Green Pythons placed third, the BSCRIM Purple Jaguars landed second, and the BSA Chimera Maroons as the Champion.
Right after the Cheerdance competition, each of the seven competing teams battled it out for the sports games both in individual and group category. Each player had put their mind and heart in representing their respective team. After 4 and half days of struggling to give victory to their team, winners were declared and they were the following:
|Over-all Champion||BSA Chimera Maroons|
|1st Runner-up||BSHRM Red Stallions|
|2nd Runner-up||BSBA Golden Tigers|
|3rd Runner-up||TEP Blue Phoenix|
|4th Runner-up||BSCRIM Purple Jaguars|
|5th Runner-up||BSSW Archangels|
|6th Runner-up||NIT Green Pythons|
The Sports Fest 2018, which aimed to provide an avenue for students to showcase their athletic prowess and strengthen the value of sportsmanship, discipline, patience, teamwork and camaraderie among students and the academic community culminated last September 22, 2018 with a Dance Sport Competition where the BSSW Archangels reigned supreme and a Victory Ball with a big, big disco overload. The CKC Intramurals 2018 ended successfully and students went home with smiles printed on their faces. It was indeed a remarkable event worthy to be remembered and cherished now and forever.
