“I believe that Central Luzon may continue producing outstanding and determined athletes for the future,” he added.

The newly-appointed regional director of the  Commission on Higher Education Region 3 Dr. Lora Yusi stressed that the grassroots sports development will be promoted among colleges and universities.

“Grassroots sports development is what we basically need at the moment. Thank you to Chairman Richard Bachmann and the PSC, together, we can produce more athletes and we can make a difference in developing the grassroots sports within the region,” Yusi said.

Together with Bachmann on the summit were Comm. Edward Hayco who oversees grassroots initiative programs and Comm. Matthew ‘Fritz’  Gaston as welcomed by hosts PRISAA Region 3 President Abraham Cruz and Vice President Jeffrey Jervoso.
