The northerners put up a stirring display of energy during the opening ceremonies attended by over 2,000 participants. Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Vice Mayor Edison Bilog, headlined the festivities as two of the distinguished guests of the festivities.
Tess Bernardino, Regional Organizer of the 2015 MILO Little Olympics in North Luzon, was delighted with the participation of the student athletes despite heavy rain during the three-day competition. ”The inclement weather posed a challenge for the organizers but despite this, our young champions played on and pushed even harder,” Bernardino said. “We thank the local government units and the academic community for supporting our endeavors in putting up a safe and successful sporting event,” she said.
High School teams from other participating schools also put up a good fight: Angeles University Foundation (60 points), Urdaneta City National High School (54.5 points), UB High School (52 points), Holy Family Academy (50 points), Mariveles National High School (44 points), while Alaminos City National High School and Zambales National High School both earned the ninth spot with 43 points.
While BCS and Camp 7 have earned their title as Team North Luzon, both schools have a lot of work to do on the road to the MLO National Finals. ”After celebrating their respective victories in their hometowns, preparations to help put our student athletes at the top of their game will quickly commence,” said Bernardino.
MILO Sports Executive Robbie De Vera expressed his appreciation to the regional organizers and the local government for their invaluable support for the sports competition, “We honor the efforts of our regional organizers, partners and local government units in making this year’s North Luzon games a great sporting experience for our participants” he said. “To wrap up another regional leg in the company of passionate young athletes is truly an inspiration for MILO. It propels us to continue our efforts in championing the value of sports through grassroots initiatives such as the MILO Little Olympics,” De Vera said.
The 2015 MILO Little Olympics is made possible by Wilson, Mikasa, Molten, Butterfly, Marathon and 2Go Travel, along with endorsements from the Department of Education, Philippine Sports Commission and the Philippine Olympic Committee.
