Pinedas of Pampanga show up at inter-basketball league for support
Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda and his son, Vice Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, expressed support to the province’s basketball league among colleges and universities by showing up at its finals on Monday.
The top two politikos of the province graced the championship game between the Mary the Queen College and Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University with their presence.
Other officials from the provincial board, as well as of the different departments at the capitol, and Minalin Mayor Edgar Flores watched the game as well.
“Isa ito sa mga programa para sa mga kabataan upang maigting na mapaunlad pa ang kanilang talento sa mga sports, tulad ng basketball,” the Pampanga government said on its Facebook page.
“Bunsod nito ay makatutulong pa upang lalong maiwas ang kabataan sa mga masasamang bisyo tulad ng paggamit ng iligal na droga,” it added.
“Paraan ito para lalong mapagtibay ang kakayanan ng mga kabataan, maps-sports man at academics.”
The game was won by Mary the Queen College, and the school’s Cyrus Antiza was hailed as the Most Valuable Player.
Photos posted on the Pampanga PIO’s Facebook page show Vice Gov. Pineda leading the giving of awards after the game.
