Education Regional Director Recaredo Borgonio had declared on Oct. 7 at the Mariano Perdices Stadium that Negros Oriental is this year’s official host of the CVRAA.

The Regional Meet will be one of the biggest events that the Province of Negros Oriental will be hosting as more than 5,000 participants, parents, and spectators are expected to witness the 34 events for boys and girls.

Dumaguete City Division Supt. Dr. Profetiza Lim said they also expect a surge in economic activities as hotels and pension houses are booked, fastfood and eating places get filled up, shops, markets, and grocery stores move their items on the shelves fast.

Several cities and municipalities of the Province have pledged to support not only their own athletes but the CVRAA events in general.

DepEd Regional Director Borgonia said he wants to see the best performances of the athletes this time so that CVRAA will have a better representation in the Palarong Pambansa set from April 11 to 17 in Tarlac City.

Borgonia observed that even if CVIRAA ranked fourth overall in the last Palaro in Tacloban, the difference of points and achievement between the overall champion and CVRAA was so huge.

The Region’s best young athletes will be selected from 18 various games including boxing, athletics, basketball, gymnastics, swimming, and volleyball. (PIA/JCT)
