Baguio athletes set to defend CARAA title for seventh year
by Harley F. Palangchao

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Baguio started its title retention bid in the Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association, with Benguet and Apayao seen as among its strongest rivals.

Benguet’s chance of clinching the overall title would depend on its athletes having the most number of delegates than the reigning champion.

But Baguio athletes are ready to defend their titles in various sporting events lined up until Feb. 11 in different venues in Benguet and the city.

Baguio consistently clinched the overall champion since the event in Mountain Province in 2008.

Last year, Baguio retained its title compliments of the 872 aggregated points from elementary and secondary athletes.

Baguio athletes both from the elementary and high school divisions dominated majority of the 18 sports disciplines held in Luna, Pudtol and Flora in Apayao from Feb. 27 to March 3, 2013.

Baguio secondary athletes dominated archery, arnis, athletics, badminton, tennis, taekwondo, swimming for both boys and girls, including football, men artistic gymnastic, rhythmic gymnastics, women artistic gymnastics, boxing, and chess boys.

Their younger counterparts, elementary athletes, ruled the arnis, chess and taekwondo boys and girls, men’s artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, softball, athletics girls and badminton girls.

Host Apayao was last year’s surprise team as it ranked third overall next to Benguet. Its athletes sent a strong message they could be title contenders in the future.

Apayao, which earned 419 points, earned much admiration from its officials and residents with its elementary athletes bringing home the crowns in athletics boys, badminton girls, table tennis boys and girls and volleyball boys.

Apayao’s secondary athletes won basketball and volleyball girls events.

For aggregated points of 434.60, Benguet placed second overall. Its elementary athletes topped the women’s artistic gymnastics, football, sepak takraw and tennis boys.

Benguet’s secondary athletes also topped the softball, volleyball boys and chess girls.

Friday’s formal opening was not only a show of force by athletes from the six provinces and two cities but also a display of support by governors, congressmen, and mayors.

Department of Education officials led by Regional Director Ellen Donato, welcomed the delegates.
