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.
