Huge feat! Mayor Bongat recognizes young Nagueño athletes
Naga City Mayor John Bongat has recognized the student athletes of the city who bagged medals during the recently concluded 2018 Batang Pinoy National Finals in Baguio City.
Mayor Bongat awarded the kids during yesterday’s weekly flag raising ceremony.
“They will receive from the city government P10k for each gold, P7k for each silver and P5k for each bronze medal. Our kids won in swimming, taekwondo, gymnastics and pencak silat,” said Mayor Bongat.
He said that the achievement of the kids was a huge feat for a small city like Naga.
“This annual national sports competition, held 2 weeks ago in Baguio City, is a battle for supremacy of the best from all over the country, from the ranks of both in-school and out-of-school children (under 18 and 12 and under),” said Bongat.
“Congratulations Naga kids, you always make us proud! And of course, lots of thanks go to your ever supportive parents, your respective coaches, trainors and schools, and to our very own Education, Scholarships and Sports Office (ESSO) headed by Mr. Ernani Suron! Lastly, thanks to the unwavering support of PSC Bicol Regional Coordinator Neil Doroin!,” he added.
