"IT’S A GREAT WIN FOR DAGUPAN CITY AT R1AA!" - MAYOR BELEN
"Today we recognize and celebrate the success and the spirit of achievement of young Dagupenos who competed at the Region 1 Athletic Association meet in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.
Our athletes has proven once more that everyday is a chance to get better. For the second straight year, our athletes copped 51 golds, 40 silver and 41 bronze medals --- our city’s biggest medal haul ever --- driving us to keep the No. 2 spot in the over-all medal standing.
Without doubt, our children have done us extremely proud with these great achievements.
This is our important investment in your children: We teach them to dream and achieve because success comes to those who never give up.
However, we bask in the glory of their bigger achievement --- They all competed with unmatched courage, big heart, focus, determination and unquenchable desire to bring pride and honor to their beloved city and their families.
Once again, our heartiest congratulations to our young athletes, coaches, sports officials, teachers and their loved ones".
