LINGAYEN, Pangasinan (PIA) – Some 3, 000 student-athletes are vying for this year’s sports and cultural events of the State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association in Region 1 (SCUAA-1) that will run from November 21 to 25, 2022.
 
The sports event, hosted this year by the Pangasinan State University (PSU), is a much anticipated sports competition after it was put on hold for two years due to the pandemic.
 
Dr. Romary Lincod, PSU sports director, said the SCUAA-1, which opened on Monday at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Complex (NRSCC) in Lingayen town, was participated in by six SUCs in Region 1.
 
These SUCs include Pangasinan State University (PSU), Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College (ISPSC), North Luzon Philippines State College (NLPSC), Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMMSU), Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), and University of Northern Philippines (UNP).
 
“During the five-day event, student-athletes compete in sports events such as arnis, baseball, basketball, beach volleyball, chess, e-sports, football, futsal, lawn tennis, swimming, sepak takraw, softball, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball as well as in arts and culture activities like visual arts, musical arts, dance arts, dance sports and performing arts,” Lincod said.
 
Before the opening of the event, a solidarity meeting for tournament managers and coaches was conducted and was followed by a grand parade that passed through the main thoroughfares of Lingayen.
 
She said the SCUAA aims to promote physical education and encourage sports activities in all higher education institutions.
 
She added that the sports, arts and cultural activities under the SCUAA also aims to promote camaraderie among the student-athletes and their coaches, instill discipline, and strengthen the special bond among the SUCs in the region.
 
The SCUAA, which is under the umbrella of the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC), is anchored in this year’s theme: “Renewed Strength and Aspiration Towards a Stable and Progressive Society.” (JCR/AMB/EMSA/PIA Pangasinan)
