In a bid to strengthen camaraderie and sportsmanship within its workforce, the CCDC Admirals employees participated in the 1st Benguet Invitational Inter-Agency Friendship Games organized by Mr. Denmark Monang.
The CCDC Admirals employees men’s basketball team couldn’t help to wonder what could have been after a tear jerking 68-65 loss to the Philippine National Police-La Trinidad in a rugged semifinals. A win would have extended the series and perhaps send the Admirals to it’s first finals appearance in the league. Instead, the Admirals squared off against the Commission on Audit-Cordillera Administrative Region in a bronze-medal game where they saw their season come to an end with a nail biting 89-86 loss Wednesday morning at the Benguet Provincial Capitol covered court. Admirals Center Del Finrie Atinyao, a vital cog in his team’s offense and defense this season bagged Mythical Five honors. On the distaff side, the women’s Admirals employees wrapped up its first friendship cup volleyball stint with a victory after a conclusive output in their final game against the Department of Health-CAR while the men’s volleyball team reaped a third place finish despite of a short handed roster.
The CCDC employees would like to thank all the teachers, fans and sponsors for supporting us wholeheartedly, Mr. Denmark Monang together with the referees, umpires and table officials for successfully organizing the league, to all the teams who participated in the said event, Mr. Winston Terence Gonzalo for making our team building so special through enthusiastically capturing incredible photos, and most especially to our dearest President for her invaluable assistance. We are forever grateful for all of your help and continued support.
