Malaybalay hosts 1st cluster of regional palaro

MALAYBALAY CITY  (Bukidnon  News/16 Nov) — Malaybalay City hosted the
first cluster of the Regional Meet 2011 where winners will represent
Region 10 for the Palarong Pambansa 2012.

According to Dr. Florante M. Corpus, city schools division
superintendent, the first of the three clusters of the Regional Meet
held last November 11-13 was comprised of baseball, softball and
boxing. The games were held at the Capitol Grounds and at the Brgy 4
gymnasium (for boxing).

The 14 participating teams were accompanied by their respective
division heads and sports supervisors. They are from the divisions of
Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro City, Camiguin, El Salvador City, Gingoog
City, Iligan City, Lanao del Norte, Malaybalay City, Misamis
Occidental, Misamis Oriental, Oroquieta City, Ozamis City Tangub City
and Valencia City.

During the opening program, City Mayor Ignacio W. Zubiri mentioned the
Regional Meet held last February in Tubod, Lanao del Norte in
preparation for Palarong Pambansa 2011. He said he was first surprised
why the activity will be held again this year but he later found out
that the event was done in advance in order to give the resulting
winners enough time to train for 2012.

“We are having the Palarong Pam-Pook twice this year because all
through the years, Region 10 has always been number 10 in its status
in sports, but last  Palarong Pambansa we are proud to come up to
number four,” said Dr. Myrna Motoomull, DepEd assistant regional
director. She added that in the previous palaro, region 10 was the
only one in Mindanao which placed in the top five.
