NASA Grabs Second Place in Pautakan 2Q11: The Quadricentennial Battle

By: Michelle Parreñas

With fifteen colleges of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) vying for the championship title, the Nursing Association of Student Achievers (NASA) emerged victorious and landed second in the team category of the Pautakan 2Q11: The Quadricentennial Battle held at the Medicine Auditorium on February 28.

The College of Nursing’s winning team was composed of Team Captain Jose Antonio Daite (IV-3) and members, Mark Deneb Armenia (IV-1), Lisha Alyanna Reyes (IV-8), Cernan Oliveros (III-8), Jailene Faye Rojas (III-9), Angelica Pineda (II-8) and NASA President Maryland Estigoy (IV-4) who also represented the college in the individual category. They were guided and supervised by NASA adviser, Ms. Kristine Gail Iglesia together with their coaches Ms. Melanie Turingan and Mr. Loen Andrei Soriano. The seven-man team ended up as a runner-up to Team Engineering and the Team Arts and Letters.

The group’s expertise and experiences in joining different intercollegiate academic competitions made them climb to the top.

“Landing on the second place is already quite an honor because there are fifteen colleges that are competing. It just goes to show that our team has the ability to win it; we just have to continue what we have already started,” Estigoy said.
With their hard work and aspiration to make a name for the College of Nursing, they studied diligently while having some fun during their training every Sunday.

“I guess we need to study and prepare even harder. The team would need to put additional focus on the areas which we deem as our waterloos such as Humanities and Math. We need to try even harder to study on our strengths such as Science, UST history and General Information. But amidst the air of competition, we must not forget to just have fun and give all our best,” beamed Estigoy.

With the support of the Nursing community, they were able to obtain what they deserved.

“In behalf of NASA, we are really very thankful that a lot of people have shown their support for our team on this year's Pautakan. We hope that the college will continue their support because in every competition that NASA joins in, it's not just for the welfare of the organization but for the whole College of Nursing as well,” she concluded.
