Updated: Mar 7

Tabuk City, Kalinga – At least 305 athletes from Kalinga province are in the thick of preparations for the five-day Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association (CARAA) meet slated for next month.


Over 700 athletes were initially set to join the biggest sporting event in the region, but a fraction of this number was trimmed due to underperformance in previous events, as relayed by Schools Division Superintendent Natividad P. Bayubay during the Kapehan sa Kapitolyo held on Monday, March 04.


The athletes will be accompanied by the 83 coaches and honorary officials poised to provide guidance.

Governor James Edduba has voiced the provincial government's commitment to fully back the delegates, recognizing the importance of improving the province’s standing in CARAA.


Last year, Kalinga ranked 8th with five gold medals, 17 silver medals, and 36 bronze medals.


With the stringent measures in place and the collective determination of the athletes, expectations are high for an impressive showcase of their skills and capabilities.


The CARAA meet this year, which is set to commence on April 15 and culminate on April 19, will be hosted by Apayao province. It is anticipated to draw around 8,000 student-athletes vying for coveted spots in the nationwide competition.
