Yellow team tops 2013 institute sportsfest for 3-peat

The Yellow team cluster of PBGB, TTC-GRC, SHU, and RMQA, landed first in the 2013 Sportsfest themed "It's PaLAY time."

Finishing with a total of 310 points, the Yellow team bested the Blue (290 points) and Violet (240 points) teams after winning first place in seven out of fourteen team events: Men's and Ladies' Volleyball, Men's and Ladies' Softball, Badminton, Table Tennis, and Men's Bowling.

The Yellow team trailed the Blue team during the first half of the season, but then caught up to them after winning the softball and table tennis events.

During the last event, bowling, the Blue had the chance to share the top over-all spot with Yellow by winning the ladies' category. The Yellow men won, sealing the victory.

Yellow team has won over-all in 2011 (Maroon), 2012 (as Green, triple-tie with Blue and Red), and this year, 2013, for a 3-peat.

The other two competing teams were Blue Team (comprised of staff from Experiment Station, Training Center, Safety and Security Services, Library & Documentation Services, Information Technology Services, Events, Visitors, and Exhibits Office, Communications & Publications Services, Food and Housing Services, Transport Services, FF Hill Building, Harrar Hall, Khush Hall Building occupants, Brent-IRRI, Clinic staff, and ECDC) and Violet Team (comprised of staff from Crop & Environmental Sciences Division, C4 Rice Center, Social Sciences Division, Grain Quality Nutrition Center, and Physical Plant Services).

The 2013 IRRI Sportsfest season had officially ended in November last year at headquarters.
