Tigers in full dynasty, CEng bags all badminton golds


The College of Engineering (CEng) Tigers amassed all the golds in Intramurals badminton collecting a total 10 gold medals, Oct. 18-19.

Julius Quindoza and Ron Jerome Bayan unleashed powerful smashes good enough to bag the first places for the Tigers in men’s singles A and B relegating the College of Architecture and Fine Arts (CAFA) Panthers and the College of Business and Accountancy (CBA) Lions in second place, respectively.

Another Tiger duo, Jella Amariego and Joddiey Tabernilla, showed crisp offensive skills in court contributing two golds for the team after defeating the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences (CNAHS) Jaguars and the College of International Hotel and Tourism Management (CITHM) Bobcats, leaving them the silver spots.

Not satisfied, the Tigers also ruled the men’s doubles after Renz Cadiz and Emmanuel Rios secured the gold.

Not giving any chance for the other colleges, Tigers Amariego and Manrin Peña punished their opponents in their hunt for gold in the women’s doubles.

Quindoza together with another Tiger, Khim Reyes, sealed the last gold for the Tigers in the mixed doubles event.

“Our coach, Sir Meneses, really pushed us to do our best and the result was satisfying, winning the gold,” the players said, expressing their joy on their victory.

The Lions also showed their strength placing second in almost every set in men/women’s divisions while the Bobcats took the second spot.
