On the fourth spot was the White Pythons team consisting of the Liberal Arts, Nursing, Office Administration and Information Technology departments with a total of 1,074 points.
The annual Intramural Fest of MPSPC is always celebrated with evidence of dynamic adaptations. This year, the Sports and Athletics Unit decided to include Bench Yell during the opening program in lieu of the usual cheerdance competition. This innovation was deemed as a more feasible event that does not incur much financial burden to the various departments. A dance sport competition was also added as a means of selecting the College’s representatives to the regional CARASUC competitions slated this month in Abra. Moreover, the board game called game of the generals was added to the list of competed events. The group events consisted of the following: Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Table Tennis, Badminton, Chess, Futsal, 4x100, and 4x400 relay and Quiz Bowl.
The individual games, on the other hand, were comprised of the Word Factory, Scrabble, Essay Writing, 1,000 m run for men, Javelin throw, Discuss throw, Shotput, High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump, 100 m run, 200 m run, 800 m run, 1,500 m run, 3,000 m run, 1,000 m run and 100 m Hurdles.
