With 25 points, University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) placed first runner up and with 26 points, Cebu Doctor’s University (CDU) was deemed champion.
“I hope we could have prepared for a longer time for it, we only had less than two weeks preparation and I knew it from the very start that we are so weak with literature, they know it. Our contenders knew it from the very start,” said Rejene Tan Lakibul, Rabor and Gonzalez’s coach.
“We are so strong with history but so weak with literature and as you can see earlier, daghan kayg nangawas na literature; but anyway, we had a pretty good fight. We placed fourth and I think that is an achievement already,” Lakibul added.
