Times of competition
Long wait is finally over. Our most awaited Sports event was finally conducted by the SSC-R community last October26-28 2000. Its main goal is to promote sportsmanship and unity among students and players alike.
October 27, the first day of San Sebastian's Intramural Games. The Scheduled games were between the Freshmen and the Juniors, and the Sophomores against the Seniors. In the first match-up, the Juniors created a large margin against the Freshies both in Basketball & Volleyball. This gave them their first set of win and the Freshies their first taste of defeat. It was the same story in our second match-up. The more matured Seniors downed the Sophies to tie with the Junior team's record.
October 27, second day of the Intrams 2000. The match-up was reversed in order. The Freshies will go up against the Seniors and The Sophies against the Juniors. The Seniors team used their age and skill advantage against the
rookie Freshies team and gained their second win and no defeat in all the major games. The Juniors team also showed their skillfulness and confidence and defeated the Sophomore Basketball and Volleyball teams respectively. This was the story of the events on the second day of the Intramural games.
October 28, the third and last day of Intrams 2000. This was the day when all the exceptional players show what they are made of and bring their respective teams to the championship. For the battle for third, the Sophies defeated the new comer Freshies team and gained them the third position in both Basketball and Volleyball competition. The championship was between the Juniors and Seniors team. Both gave their best but there must be a winner to be declared. Two of the major games were won by the Juniors and one by the Seniors. With this accomplishment, The Juniors team was declared as the Over-all champion.
The Intrams 2000 has finally come to an end. The main goal of unity and sportsmanship was evidently shown in every game that was conducted. This should tighten the bonding of Sebastinian students towards each other no matter what year level they are in. It really showed the unity and sportsmanship that the Sebastinians truly possess.
