June 04, 2017

University of the Cordilleras Jaguars unseated defending champions University of Baguio Cardinals to be the new overall champion at the close of the Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League Season 30.

The UC Jaguars garnered a total of 727 points courtesy of its dominance in the men and women category of badminton, taekwondo, wushu, softball and tennis.

Alhough the Cardinals, who settled for second place with 663 points, led the second phase of the event, it was not enough to compensate the lopsided victory of the Jaguars' 65-point lead during the first phase of the biggest collegiate sports games in the region.

It was also the men that helped propel Jaguars to win in judo, table tennis, basketball, athletics, and volleyball. The women Cardinals contributed in chess, judo, table tennis, basketball, athletics, and volleyball.

The Cardinals dominated the men and women category in archery and arnis, and men's swimming.

Saint Louis University Navigators followed on third place with 569 points topping in the men's chess, sepak takraw, and women's swimming.

The Philippine Military Academy Cavaliers is on fourth place with 377 points and championed in boxing.

Benguet State University Wildcats followed with 310 points dominating baseball and football.

The runners up in order are: Cordillera Career and Development College Admirals with 168 points, Kings College of the Philippines Tigers and Baguio College of Technology Atoms each having 97 points, Pines City Colleges Warriors with 81 points, University of the Philippines-Baguio Maroons with 74.5 points, and Baguio Central University Eagles with 59.5 points.
