SLU con­tinue their on­slaught in men’s and women’s bad­minton se­cur­ing the both ti­tles as UB and PMA took home the sec­ond and third place hon­ors in both the men and women’s divi­sion.

In sepak takraw, the UC Jaguars made it to the top af­ter dis­pos­ing their ri­vals with BSU fin­ish­ing sec­ond and SLU com­plet­ing the top

three.

Ear­lier, SLU earned five gold medals en route to bag­ging the over - all ti­tle in the wushu - taulo com­pe­ti­tion of the BBEAL.
