In a battle of reuniting and rekindling themselves with their roots, the representatives of the seven clusters proved their aptitude in the traditional Filipino games as they assembled together at 7/F Martin Hall this afternoon for the Palarong Pinoy 2019.

Palarong Pinoy has been a staple, highly anticipated event every Fiesta season. For years now, the General Assembly of Class Presidents (GACP) has taken the responsibility under their wing to ensure that such tradition is kept and preserved.

This year’s Palarong Atenista had five games in line; all of them encrypted with the traditional gist and character of what a Pinoy game should be, but altered and modified to entice the current generation into playing. 

One of the games, Kadenang Ginto, was made in reference to the ongoing TV series that has managed to bulk up a huge cult following within the country.

The five-game set were as follows: Cardo Went to War, Sack Race, Pencil Shoot, Kadenang Ginto, and the ever-popular Caterpillar.

In the end, the School of Engineering and Architecture proved to be more highly competent than the rest as they managed to finish the entire ordeal faster than the other six.

On the other hand, Business and Management (B&M) Vipers and Accountancy (ACC) Griffins were hailed as first and second runner-ups respectively.

End the silence of the gagged!
