HERMOSA, Bataan – Basketball and volleyball teams from all barangays of this municipality gathered recently as the local government unit of Hermosa (LGU-Hermosa) launched the Inter-Barangay Basketball and Volleyball League 2019.
Municipal Mayor Jopet Inton was represented by his ever supportive wife, Clark International Airport Corp. Director, Atty. Anne Adorable-Inton, during the opening ceremonies.
Mayor Jopet Inton said these sports activities are good starting ground to build camaraderie and sportsmanship towards other players while promoting active lifestyles for Hermoseños.
The said activity is a major project of Sangguniang Kabataan (SK Federation) President Beatriz Jeanelle Lim supported by LGU Hermosa and the Sangguniang Bayan led by Vice Mayor Cris Vitug.
Atty. Inton meanwhile, said that this will also focus on the ability of the young players since they will be able to enhance their skills in playing and build trust among their teams.
“Pinalalakas natin ang sports sa ating bayan, lalo na sa mga kabataan. Ginagawa natin ito para magkaroon sila ng hilig sa sports. Paraan na rin natin ito para sa ating mga kabataan na makaiwas sa masasamang bisyo,” Mayor Inton said in an interview.
