CTU rallies past karatedo contenders at nationals to win 3 gold medals

CTU Sports Director Nemia Zamora (4th from left,front row) continues to campaign for sports activism in the university, that recently led to winning three gold medals in karatedo in Baguio City.

Putting up a good show is an understatement when it comes to describing Cebu Technological University delegation that took home 3 gold medals at the Karate national  tournament hosted by University of Baguio last week.

Caballero and Villaruel won the women’s kumite final under 50-kg and 60-kg titles respectively while Mangubat succeeded in the men’s kumite  under 55-kg title.

The gold medals were  on top of one silver by Gabriel Saludar and three bronzes by Rashel Jabil, Lyka Barredo (kata division) and John Rey Betcher.

CTU Sports Director Nemia Zamora was quick to notify UICP Saturday evening of yet another victory of the university at the 2nd National University Karate Championship on November 15 through 17 by the Federation of Schools Sports Association of the Philippines (FESSAP) and the Philippines Karatedo (PKF87).

The team gained early momentum as coaches Juanito Paulo  and Johanna Paulo with trainer  Carmelito Gemao prepped them for the event that seemed to have become CTU’s cup of tea in many tournaments since Dr. Zamora took office as director in 2015. UICP
