THE UST Golden Corps of Cadets was hailed as the best Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) unit and overall champion in the National Capital Region for this year’s Centralized Regional Annual Administrative and Tactical Inspection, topping 28 other schools.

The Golden Corps was also named Best in Administration, Best in Unit Briefing for scoring 100 points in Method of Instruction, champion in administration aspect, champion in M14 sniping, champion in warfighting, 1st runner up in theoretical exam, 2nd runner up in improvised explosive devices identification and 2nd runner up in first aid demonstration.

Raina Andrea Madrid, corps commander, said the unit worked hard to maintain the University’s standing in the annual ROTC competition, adding the cadet unit has qualified for a podium finish since 2015.

“What really led [us] to victory was unity, we competed as one team in the name of the [Golden Corps] because we wanted to bring pride to our beloved University,” Madrid told the Varsitarian in an interview.
