Athletes from universities in Baguio and Benguet powered the Cordillera region to a fifth place finish at the close of the 2019 Private Schools Athletic Association national games in Davao City recently.

Cordilleran athletes amassed 39 gold, 39 silver and 25 bronze medals during the weeklong tournament that saw 7,000 athletes and coaches convening for the annual competition.

Western Visayas topped the event with 212 gold, 146 silver and 97 bronze medals followed by Central Visayas with 139-128-80-medal haul.

In third place is Davao region with 70-104-112 medals with Soccksargen completing the top five with 44-34-87 medals.

Athletes from the University of Baguio, University of the Cordilleras, Baguio College of Technology, Pines City College, Baguio Central University and Kings College of the Philippines gave the much needed boost for the region.

UC Athletics Director Danny Cong-o reported that Cordillera still landed in the top five despite being one of the regions with fewer delegates composed of 260 athletes and coaches.

Cong-o said other regions in the top five were represented by 600 to 800 plus athletes and coaches.

Baseball athletes from UC amassed nine gold by winning as overall champion in baseball senior’s division against Region 5, 2-1, in the finals after holding the opponent scoreless from the fifth to the last inning.

Cordillera taekwondo athletes under coaches Arnold Oglayon and Danrey Velo also collected the most medals with 15 gold,  eight silver, and 10 bronze medals. 

Weightlifters from the highlands also won 11 gold, 15 silver and four bronze medals.

Cordillera also won one gold, three silver and four bronze medals in athletics while it also got two gold and four bronze medals in boxing then one silver in karate.

The region  also collected four silver and three bronze medals in lawn tennis with another eight silver medals in chess.

Philippine Sports Commission Chairman Butch Ramirez, who graced the event, said that PRISAA is an athletic meet where outstanding athletes represent the country to the World University Games set this year.

“PRISAA is very important in sports development in the country – from the grassroots sports, to the Palarong Pambansa to the tertiary, which is PRISAA. This is where we discover talent to become national athletes or if not, some of them will become scholars of universities and colleges to earn education. It's very important,” Ramirez said.

Next year’s host of PRISAA will be Cagayan region with Tuguegarao as the main venue.
