BACOLOD City – Athletes from Western Visayas are expected to double their efforts to snatch the championship title from Central Visayas in next year’s National Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) Meet.

Roger Banzuela, the region’s sports technical director, said they will “make some adjustments in its sports program and events to make up with its third place finish this year.”

The 2014 National PRISAA will be held in April in Tagum City in Southern Mindanao – the fourth placer in this year’s competition.

Western Visayas settled for third place in the over-all ranking of the recently concluded National PRISAA in Lingayen, Pangasinan with 61 gold, 60 silver and 86 bronze medals.

But it was adjudged champion in secondary division with 46 gold, 26 silver and 13 bronze medals.

The region’s women athletes ruled in athletics, volleyball, chess, table tennis, taekwondo, and vocal solo, while men dominated the football and badminton.

Central Visayas defended its championship title by harvesting 77 gold, 50 silver and 29 bronze medals. CALABARZON became its closest rival with 68 gold, 30 silver and 49 bronze medals. (PNA)
