Last October 19, SLCM students, faculty and staff kicked off this year’s “Depolarize” Sportsfest 2017 at the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center Gymnasium.

The event started with a prayer led by Sharmaine Bungabong of Batch 2020 followed by opening remarks from SLCM Athletics Guild’s President, Jerwin Cayetano. He welcomed everyone and encouraged a sense of confidence and competitiveness in everyone even though it was right after the exams. He also added that the event, in a way, was another form of battle that we fight to excel in as we try to discover a hidden potential within us waiting to be depolarized. In line with the theme, he encouraged everyone to “start it right with depolarization”.

Roll call of the participating teams including Batches 2020, 2021, 2022 and CIFAST with their respective cheers followed suit. The opening ceremonies ended with the Oath of Sportsmanship led by John Lorenzo Hanrahan of Batch 2021.
