Thursday, March 6, 2014
ONE of the centerpiece grassroots outreach sports programs of Bacolod City Mayor Monico Puentevella when he was still a congressman, the Monico Cup Inter-Barangay Basketball Tournament for 21 Under, is set to open its 8th edition on April 6.
The event was earlier scheduled for March 30 but with Puentevella’s prior commitment, organizers moved the opening rites.
Thirty-two teams from various barangays in Bacolod have confirmed participation, but organizers said the number will still increase when all the entries beat the March 8 deadline for submission.
Participating villages as of press time are barangays 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 20, 22, 23, 26, 29, 30, 36, 38, 40, Mandalagan, Singcang, Granada, Tangub, Taculing, Bata, Alijis, Handumanan, Montevista, and Banago.
Aurelio Puentevella, over-all coordinator for Youth and Sports Office of Bacolod City, is tasked to supervise the event. (HGD)
