DAGUPAN CITY: The Dagupan City National High School (DCNHS) basketball team will be the city’s representative to the Batang PBA Regional Leg in San Fernando City, Pampanga on May 20 to 22.
This after DCNHS snatched the championship crown from Francisco Q. Duque Medical Foundation Special Science High School (FQDMFSSHS) in a showdown at the Dagupan City People’s Astrodome last May 17.
Batang PBA is a nationwide league being conducted by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) to develop potential stars right from the grassroots level.
DCNHS will see action against the star players of Baguio City and Pampanga in the race for the national finals on May 28 to June 4.
Commissioner Jack Vidal of the Dagupan City Sports Commission (DCSC) said that the activity is part of the city’s continuing program on sports development, including the conduct of series of basketball clinics and tournaments like the city summer free DCSC sports clinic.
The DCNHS basketball team is confident that with the kind of game they had played against FQDMFSSHS, there is a strong chance that it will be able to make it to the national finals.
