The Finals of the Laro ng Lahi, played between Team White & Team Blue, was decided by three games - Caterpillar Game, Kadang-Kadang Race, & Bawang Base - all with a twist. The two teams went neck and neck in the intense Bawang Base but Team Blue eventually won despite both teams not wanting to back down until the very last round. Team White, on the other hand, dominated the Caterpillar Game & Kadang-Kadang Race, which led them to be the Laro ng Lahi 2022 Champions.
Family Day had its own fun and competition as well. Representatives from each department, section and unit were strategically grouped to four teams in the battle for three challenges namely Catch the Chicken, Tug of War, and Sack Race. The Red Team emerged as the overall winner of the Family Day as they bested the other three teams (Blue Team, Yellow Team & Green Team).
The kick-off for the Sports Festival also took place in the same day. The first official basketball game since the pandemic was a battle between the powerhouse Nursing Division and Paramedical Division, with the guys in green (Nursing) winning by a 13-point margin, 79-66.
Meanwhile in the Volleyball Men’s Division, the Paramedical Team powered its way to a lopsided 2-0 win against the Medical Team. The last game of the day was a match between the Paramedical & Medical Women’s Division. The ladies in yellow (Paramedical) took the first set with a large margin. However, the second set was a different story as the Medical Team came roaring back, scoring at will, forcing a win-it-all set. A surprised but undisturbed Paramedical Division bounced back, displaying a well-composed & well-disciplined volleyball game and ending the match with two sets to one against the gritty Medical Division.
Undeniably, all participants demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship & camaraderie throughout the events. Everyone played fair, respected every rules and traditions of the sport, and displayed graciousness in victory and defeat. - Rob Alfreid Mandac
