The Igorot lady led the Philippine team to victory by bagging home six gold, four silver, and two bronze medals during the event which was participated by over 100 archers from ASEAN countries including Hong Kong.

The city government of Baguio has issued a resolution commending Kareel and her father John, a long-time coach.

Authored by Councilor Allad-iw, the resolution lauded Kareel for taking home four out of the six gold medals won by team Philippines.

"Their feat brought pride and honor to their families and the Philippines and the City of Baguio, which have been placed in the glare of publicity once again," Allad-iw said.

Councilor Allad-iw added that Kareel's impressive win as a solo marksman has catapulted her status in the World Women's Recurve Ranking to 107th place.
