Sakudi's do-it-all outfielder Bert Camacho was by far the most decorated athlete in the Chamolinian Softball Association's 2nd Budweiser Softball League awards ceremony held after the conclusion of the championship duels Friday night at the Capitol Hill Ballfield.
After her team held on to clinch their second consecutive league championship, Camacho was selected as the most valuable player of the regular season.
She also earned a number of other individual honors, including batting champion (0.760 batting average), most RBIs (21), and most doubles (4).
In fact, a number of Sakudi players also went home with individual trophies.
Camacho's fellow outfielder Liz Lebria walked away with the most runs plum (30) and nabbed a share of most triples honors with teammate Thelma Mizer and 670 Babes' Melissa Benjamin as the trio hammered three apiece during the regular season.
In addition, Sakudi rookie shortstop Juljen Ngeskebei turned out to be a great executive decision by the two-time champs as the young speedster was selected as the MVP of the final series for her tremendous defensive performance.
For some added icing on the cake, Sakudi pitcher Eileen Babauta swept both the earned run average (1.72) and strikeout queen (28) honors.
Before being handed their second title, Sakudi was bestowed with their second consecutive pennant championship, while other team awards were presented to runner-up 670 Babes and third place Enamo Meta, respectively. 670 Babes also received the sportsmanship award.
Men's league champions Your Balls, meanwhile, enjoyed its shining moment at the end of the night, but before them Natibu and Gagau Eyez accepted their respective second and third place trophies.
The 2011 champion Man Amigos came up short this year, but managed to swipe its first pennant title. Sportsmanship honors, meanwhile, went to the “always punctual” Managaha Boys, who received one of the loudest applauses from the crowd.
Though Sakudi hogged the ladies' individual hardware, the men's awards were spread out diversely among the field.
Your Balls' J.P. Lizama was hailed as the men's most valuable player in the finals for jacking a game-tying three-run homer at the end of regulation that set the table for the big win, while regular season MVP honors went to X-clusive's Vince Cepeda in what was a very tough decision for league organizers to make.
Cepeda batted 0.667 on the year for 29 RBIs, but in the end, it was his clutch defense in the outfield that made the difference.
Natibu's Bruce Norita finished as the men's batting champ (0.800 batting average); Manelos' Angel Reyes clubbed the most doubles (8); while teammate Shane Mendiola topped the triples department (3).
Man Amigos' Roy Celis (31) finished with the most runs scored, Your Balls' Audie Maratita (33) came away with the most RBIs, 6-Pack pitcher Melvin Aldan (5.70 ERA) maintained the lowest ERA; and Manelos hurler Yubert Alepuyo was crowned strikeout king (14).
A special plaque of appreciation was also presented to Mar-Pac's Mel Tenorio for his company's sponsorship of the league.
