Despite an automatic seeding into the national finals, the Bacolod City badminton team registered an impressive finish in the Batang Pinoy Visayas Leg held in Maasin City, Leyte, recently.
Katrina Tugado of St. Scholastica's Academy won the gold for Bacolod in the girls' 12 under singles, and along with Yana Ysabel Chua of Bacolod Tay Tung High School, bagged the silver in 12 under doubles. Chua also placed second behind Tugado in the girls' 12 under singles.
Other medalists for the Bacolod City delegates were Cody Torres, Sean De Jesus, Adrian Defensor and Nike Apuhin.
All members of the Bacolod team will advance to the national finals in November after the Philippine Sports Commission granted an automatic seeding to the athletes from the host city.*NAB
