Concepcion Elem spikers rule NCR meet
THE Concepcion Elementary School dominated the boys’ volleyball competition in the Regional Meet of the National Capital Region last week.
The boys of coaches Rodel Pagdanganan and Tony Santiago defeated a team from Valenzuela City in the final, 25-18, 25-23, to take home the title and earn the right to represent NCR in this year’s Palarong Pambansa in Dapitan City.
With their parents cheering them on the sideline, tournament Most Valuable Player Carlo Madregalejos and Ruvince Abrot led their team to a comfortable win in the opening set.
But the boys from Valenzuela came out strong in the second set and threatened to forge a deciding third set.
Madrgalejos and his gang refused to wilt under pressure and dashed the hopes of their opponents with a strong finishing kick.
