BBEAL hope­ful of PSC pledge

Sun.Star Baguio - - PRIMESPORTS -

THE LARGEST col­le­giate league in north­ern Lu­zon re­mains op­ti­mistic of the fund­ing that will come from the Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion.

Univer­sity of the Cordilleras ath­letic di­rec­tor Danilo Cong-o told Sun.Star Baguio the fund­ing is still with the PSC and the BBEAL will just have to fol­low – up an ear­lier com­mit­ment from PSC chair­man Wil­liam Ramirez.

From an ini­tial pledge of P500,000, Cong-o said the amount is low­ered to P200,000 as the PSC chair­per­son as­sured this will be re­leased to the lo­cal league.

“We just need to fol­low it up from time to time so we can get the pledge,” said Cong-o.

Ramirez, dur­ing a meet­ing in March this year with mem­bers of the BBEAL tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee promised to give the aid as tech­ni­cal fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance for BBEAL's up­com­ing Sea­son 31 and en­cour­aged the league to start a so­cial pro­gram tar­get­ing the com­mu­nity.
