Negros’ bid for athletics crown
starts today at Villareal Stadium
The battle for supremacy in athletics between Negros Occidental and Iloilo starts today as competition in the 2013 Western Visayas Regional Athletic Association Meet kicks off at the Villareal Stadium in Roxas City, Capiz.
At the forefront of Negros’ campaign in long jump are Mary Anthony Diesto and Erica Kee, both from Bacolod Tay Tung High School, who won the gold and silver medals, respectively, during the Provincial Meet at the Panaad Park and Sports Stadium in December.
Diesto is the reigning WVRAA champion in secondary girls’ long jump after she captured the gold last year at the Panaad when Negros hosted the regional meet.
