CITY OF MALOLOS – For the 28th time, the Province of Bulacan brought home the bacon as they snatched a total of 205 medals during the Central Luzon Regional Athletic Association (CLRAA) Meet held at the Province of Zambales last February 5-7, 2019.
The Division of Bulacan garnered 70 gold, 81 silver and 54 bronze medals.
Speaking during the Team Bulacan Victory Party held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium here yesterday, Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado saluted the student-athletes for once again bringing the name of the province on the top of the list.
“Hindi sapat ang parangal na igagawad sa inyo upang matumbasan ang lahat ng pagod at hirap ninyo upang maiuwi ang kampeonato. Napakalaking biyaya ang ipinagkaloob ninyo sa ating lalawigan, hindi lamang sa inyong sarili at sa inyong pamilya,” the governor said.
Meanwhile, Bulacan Schools Division Superintendent Zenia G. Mostoles congratulated the athletes and reminded them not to stop training especially those who would advance to the Palarong Pambansa in Davao.
“Lalo pa nating galingan. Ituloy natin ang ating pagsasanay dahil sa puntong ito, atin namang ipapamalas ang ating husay sa buong bansa,” Mostoles said.
Bulakenyo athletes outsmarted 19 other delegations from the seven provinces of Central Luzon. The Province of Bulacan was followed with the Province of Bataan with a total of 137 medals and City of Olongapo with 100 medals.
