I was wondering about the results of CARAA or the regional athletic meet which pits high school and elementary athletes from the different provinces and, fortunately, Bong Cayabyab has this report in the Northern Philippine Times.
Here’s how the provinces and Baguio City ranked:
Baguio recorded 322-points in the elementary division and scored 474- points for the secondary level during the weeklong regional sports meet at La Trinidad Sports Complex and Benguet State University, Benguet province, which fired off Feb. 24.
Benguet emerged 2nd with 580 points; Mt. Province 3rd with 293, followed by Kalinga, Ifugao, Abra, and Apayao province, respectively.
Gag-gag-ay has a post on some of the winners which you can read here. Also, as long as we are talking about sports, check out Ramon Dacawi’s must-read article on the need for more sports coverage out there. We agree with him of course.
By the way, if you are interested in how the 2008 CARAA rankings changed from last year, check out the CARAA post we made a year ago.
One thought on “CARAA 2008 Results”
Congratulations to the Baguio CARAA athletes…I heard that Mayor Bautista is eyeing for the Palarong Pambansa to be staged here in Baguio… I think his son is also making waves as a tanker…he won for the city 4 medals in swimming in this year’s meet…
If the Palarong Pambansa will push through, it will be a boost for our local economy like tourism…I remember when I was still in Bacolod a couple of years back that the Palarong Pambansa was held simultaneously with the Panaad sa Negros Festival…It was really a great help to the local government units in that province….Sana isabay nila ito next year sa Panagbenga or SumVac….maybe we’ll surpass the million tourist dream of RD Molintas…
