The Central Visayas Regional Student Showdown Quiz Bee Competition hailed not just one but two CTU Danao electrical engineering quizzers in first and second places, leaving third spot for the University of San Carlos (USC) Wednesday night, via zoom.
Jomar Clarion (1st) and Wenwen Torremocha (2nd) topped this year’s regional tilt backed by the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines, Inc. (IIEE).
In an online interview, Clarion said he fought back inhibitions and proved to everyone involved that being the youngest did not make him the weakest competition.
The sophomore fulfilled his pursuit for a championship trophy (apart from the cash prize for all winners), one point ahead of Torremocha who is a senior.
Both worked closely with coaches Jestoni Tan and Junry Monterola, who presently work in said campus.
Other contenders represented the University of the Visayas (UV), University of Cebu Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue (UCLM), Cebu Institute of Technology- University (CIT-U), CTU Main and CTU Tuburan.
This year is marked by 3 engineering championship trophies by CTU Danao alone, including those of civil and computer engineering departments at the national and regional levels, respectively. /UICPA
