PAGADIAN CITY – Anchored on the theme “ZamPen: Go in Unity and Solidarity for Excellence,” this city will play host to this year’s Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Athletic Association Meet starting Feb. 25-28, 2015.

Five city schools divisions and three provincial schools divisions in the region with over 4,000 elementary and high school athletes are expected to participate in the different sports and athletic competitions.

The participating city schools divisions are the cities Isabela, Dapitan, Dipolog, Pagadian and Zamboanga while the provincial schools divisions are the Zamboanga Sibugay, Zamboanga del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur.

Prior to the official opening ceremonies on Feb. 25, a solidarity conference will be held today at 2 p.m. with the technical officials, tournament managers, coaches and chaperons.

As last year’s ZPRAA meet host, Dipolog City Mayor Evelyn Uy and Schools Division Superintendent Victoria Perez will turn-over the ZPRAA banner to Pagadian City Mayor Romeo Pulmones and Dr. Marcom Borongan, OIC-Schools Division Superintendent during the opening program with Zamboanga del Sur Governor Antonio H.
