Baguio City – A PMA Class (5×5) Challenge with the theme “Fellowship of the Bull Ring” was organized by the PMA Masikhay Class of 1999 under the leadership of CAV EDGARDO V TALAROC JR. The event happened on February 19 and was held at the newly renovated Jurado Hall.
With CAV ARISTOTLE MAGLASANG as the event’s point person different classes were able to join the tournament. The cavaliers’ memories were refreshed during the time when they were still cadets doing their physical training at Jurado Hall. The tournament aims to maintain and strengthen the brotherhood among PMA Alumni.
After rounds of attempted dunks, floaters, midrange jumpers, free-throws and 3-Point shot the whole package of the game was finally exposed and realized like never before,PMA Mandarangan Class of 2003 dominated the other teams and hailed champion of the tournament. The defending champion in the past two tournaments PMA Masikhay Class of 1999 was this years 1st runner up, and the 2nd runner-up is the combined team of PMA Sanghaya Class of 2000, PMA Banyuhay Class of 2002, and PMA Sanlingan Class of 2005, and 3rd runner-up goes to PMA Kalasag Lahi Class of 1997 and PMA Masinag Class of 1998.
