“I hereby declare the Intramurals 2015… OPEN!” the Eastern Samar State University sports director, Mr. Federico M. Suyot Jr., declared as he formally opened the 2015 Intramurals Meet yesterday morning at the ESSU Grandstand.
With various designated colors cheerfully and peacefully dancing and waving around the campus, the event started at 8:05 AM through a parade from the intersection point going to the grandstand by Marshall-ROTC officers, SSC-TSG officers, SPBS staff, and the colleges merged into units with their corresponding coaches, faculty and staff. Unit I, the “Red Dragons,” is composed of College of Engineering (CE), College of Computer Studies (CCS), and School of Vocational Technology (SVT). Unit II as “Blue Angels” consists of College of Education (COED), College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), and College of Law and Criminal Justice (CLCJ).

To render their holistic service and to keep all the students involved during the 2015 Intramurals, the Supreme Student Council-Tertiary Student Government (SSC-TSG) officers organized different activities for non-athlete students yesterday, July 9, 2015, in front of the College of Education-THE Room.

During the official start of the most exciting part of the entire school year, the Intramurals 2015, the respected President of the University, Dr. Edmundo Campoto once again welcomed everyone especially the hopeful athletes during his opening remarks. The annual sporting event is being conducted to find out the best athletes from the university that will be sent to Guiuan to compete in the Quintuple Meet and ultimately in the SCUAA 2015 which will be held at the Visayas State University in Baybay, Leyte.
During his speech, he stated that this kind of event makes athletes become better and that our University is not making it to the top and to catch and cope up with the wit and empowerment of UEP, EVSU and LNU, which he dubbed as the best schools as far as athletics is concerned, is highly recommended. Also, he commented about the division of different colleges merged into four different units because of the noticeable unequal number of students and that it should not be discriminating with regards to gender for each unit to have fair standing on the different competitions.
Furthermore, he also left an inspiring quote before ending his speech saying that it’s not about winning but how you play the game, so that every athlete will perform well and more importantly, enjoy the competition.

Intramurals is the most awaited event every year especially for the athletes. It is a time to showcase their talents, a time to develop camaraderie and sportsmanship and a time where they compete with pride and honor to represent their respective units.

Wearing t-shirts in accordance to the respective color of their units, makeshift hats and paraphernalia in hand, the whole of Eastern Samar State University danced to the rhythm of the music during the 2015 Intramurals.
Power surged through their hands, raising them in the air, their shouts and laughter echoing through the whole ground.
A shake here and a twist there, they danced like there was no tomorrow. A feeling of excitement and happiness reflected through each and every smile of the ESSUnians. An hour of practice every after classes these past two days had been worth it, for they had shone with every step they made.
