“The annual regional sports meet is a good venue not only for instilling discipline, honing skills and talents but also the best time for fostering camaraderie to our athletes, coaches and staff of the event,” Alvarado said.

All of the outstanding athletes who won first place in their respective sports events in CLRAA will represent the region in the Palarong Pambansa 2015.###
