CEBU CITY, Philippines — The University of San Carlos (USC) ruled the college division of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) swimming competition on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022, at the Cebu City Sports Center (CCSC) pool.

USC of head coach Ronald Manlosa amassed a total of 30 gold medals along with 22 silvers and 10 bronzes. They added seven more gilts in the remaining events which lasted late in the afternoon on Saturday.

The Cebu Doctors University (CDU) finished second in the overall standings with a medal tally of 10-11-9 (gold-silver-bronze). University of Cebu (UC) finished third with a 2-3-9 medal count, while the newcomers, the University of the Philippines-Foundation (UP), had four silvers and one bronze, and the UCLM was at the bottom with five bronzes. 

USC’s lady tankers hauled 14 gold medals, nine silvers, and four bronzes, while its male swimmers harvested 16 gilts, 13 silvers, and 6 bronzes in the one-day competition. 

Cecille Mole, Kristin Ivy Austria, and Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) double silver medalist in triathlon Andrew Kim Remolino led USC’s lopsided campaign.
