THOUSANDS of college athletes gather as the Cordillera Administrative Region Association of State Universities and Colleges (CARASUC) athletic meet 2013 officially opened Wednesday at the Benguet State University Sports Complex.

Driven by the theme “Strengthening CARASUC Spirit through Sports” students from seven different state universities and colleges from the Cordillera region battle for honors, which ends on December 14.

Benguet Congressman Ronald Cosalan, who was unable to attend the ceremony for congressional business, sent his message of support to everyone involved in the sports event.

Cosalan assured the participants for the occasion he is in every way an auxiliary to the cause of the athletic meet.

Student athletes from the host school BSU, Abra Institute of Science and Technology, Ifugao State University, Kalinga Apayao State College, Mountain Province State Polytechnic College, and University of the Philippines – Baguio will showcase their skills in the four-day event.

Sport events competed in CARASUC include athletics, basketball, volleyball, sepak takraw, badminton, chess, taekwondo, arnis, lawn tennis, table tennis, soccer, and softball.

CARASUC is the regional association of state universities and colleges here in the Cordillera region, governed by the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) which was established to give importance to the role of the different SUC’s nationwide.

According to CARASUC 2013 athletic chairman Eduardo Bagtang, the sports meet will screen athletes from the regional area to be sent and compete for the State College and Universities Athletic Association (SCUAA) next year.

“With this athletic meet we can determine the potential candidates whom we shall send in the national competitions,” Bagtang said.

“We look forward to the success of the event, I wish all the participants the best of luck and be best on their respective sports event,” Bagtang added.
