Batang Pinoy to push through

Published

Baguio City will proceed with the hosting of the Batang Pinoy National Championships set Sept. 15-22 but the approaching super storm has forced the mayor’s office to scrap the opening rites, the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) said yesterday.

The first day of competitions will kick off Sept. 17 after consultations involving PSC chairman William “Butch” Ramirez and city mayor Mauricio Domogan as they took into account the safety of the delegates.

However, the mayor’s office assured athletes and officials that “a grand closing celebration” will cap the sportsfest.

“This adjustment will allow teams to let the storm pass and be in Baguio by September 16,” said Domogan.
