RIZALEÑOS once again dominated the Southern Tagalog CALABARZON Athletic Association (STCAA) Regional Sports Competition after winning 102 gold, 76 silver, and 60 bronze medals last February 12-16, 2018 in San Pablo City, Laguna. This is the 7th time the group of athletes from the Rizal Province bagged the Overall Championship since it started its winning streak in 2011. It was no holds barred as 700 young Rizal athletes reaped medals in 28 sports events in STCAA.

Rizal Governor Rebecca “Nini” Ynares proudly congratulates the athletes for their sheer dedication and determination in proving to the public that Rizaleňos are first class athletes. The governor added that the Rizal Team’s good track record in winning the overall championship seven years in a row is the epitome of their battle cry “Taas Noo, Rizaleňo!”

This year, the province of Rizal joined forces with Antipolo City resulting in a victorious collaboration.

Antipolo City Mayor Jun Ynares supports the sports tandem of Rizal and Antipolo in STCAA saying that this will serve as an inspiration to everyone that more can be achieved when individuals join hands and work together.

The provincial government is all set to further boost its sports program to accommodate and develop more winning athletes, according to Gov. Ynares.
