COLLEGIATE rivalry once again gets renewed in this part of the country as the second phase of the Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League resumes January next year.

With the holiday season and training practically over, Baguio and Benguet's college athletes open their title bid once again in the largest multi - discipline sports event up north Luzon.

Events lined up this coming January will include softball, lawn tennis, arnis, baseball, judo, and taekwondo, while wushu, football, and athletics are scheduled for February in the league's 27th season.

University of Baguio, after topping the first phase of competition with their eight championships including the centerpiece basketball tournament is keen on retaining the over-all title in tae kwon do.

Both the Cardinals men's and women's tae kwon do jins swept the honors during the 26th season.

UB, who also topped the women's volleyball took one first runner-up finish and three second runner-up honors in the first semester of play.

But it will not be a walk in the park for the Cardinals as the Saint Louis University Navigators are eyeing to reclaim the women's tae kwon do crown and vow to keep the baseball diadem they held for the last five years.

The Navigators finished with four championships including their conquest in men's volleyball and the women's basketball with seven first runner-up finishes and four second place finish after the first sem.

Host University of the Cordilleras will try to return to winning form after capturing the championship in the men's archery, sepak takraw, and men's badminton will seek their eight crown in women's softball after being dislodged last year on paper with Benguet State University eventually topping the event.

The Jaguars, aside from their three championships, scored seven first runner-up honors and three third place finishes.

Cordillera Career Development College on the other hand will eye for a repeat in men's judo.

The University of the Philippines Maroons has two bronze medals in women's basketball and men's archery, while Philippine Military Academy Cavaliers also got bronze medals in men and women's swimming, with BSU also snatched a bronze medal in sepak takraw.

Other participating schools are Baguio College of Technology, Pines City Colleges, and Baguio Central University.
