CARAA team, racket events moved to June 2-4

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet(PIA) -- The Department of Education - Cordillera has rescheduled the conduct of the 2023 Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association(CARAA) meet for the team and racket events due to the impending threat of Super Typhoon “Mawar.”

In a memorandum issued by DepEd-CAR Regional Director Estela Cariño, the CARAA Regional Tournament for Team and Racket events set on May 26 to 28, 2023 are  moved  to June 2 to 4.

“Due to the threat of typhoon “Mawar” which is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) between Friday evening, May 26, and early Saturday morning, May 27, according to reports from PAGASA, the scheduled Conduct of the Regional Tournament for Team and Racket Evens on May 26 to 28, 2023 is hereby rescheduled on June 2 to 4, 2023.”

The memo which was sent to the different school divisions and other concerned offices also advised  that the arrival and interview of the athletes  with the new schedule will be on June 2.

The province of Apayao will  host the basketball and volleyball events, Mountain Province, the  baseball and sepak takraw events, and  Benguet will host football.

Badminton and table tennis will be played in Baguio City, and softball  in  Tabuk City.   
The events will  be hosted by the provinces of Apayao, Benguet, Mountain Province and the cities of Baguio and Tabuk.

After two years of hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DepEd-CAR held this year the CARAA sports meet simultaneous with the  Regional Academic Festival  from April 27 to May 1 in Baguio City.

Only  15   select focus sports  that the region  can confidently compete and advance to the next level  were played during the  CARAA 2023 in adherence to DepEd Memorandum No. 5, s. 2023.

In consideration  of the clamor of different local government units, schools and other officials for the  inclusion of other sports events in the CARAA,  however, DepEd-CAR  approved the conduct of the tournament  for the team and racket events.

On Thursday, May 25, PAGASA reported that STY Mawar which is  expected to enter PAR on Friday night or Saturday morning  and will be named “Betty” is  forecast to bring intense rains in the Cordillera region until May 30. (JDP/RMC- PIA CAR)
