LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League executive and technical committees on Monday approved the start of competitions among college and universities on October 28.

In a meeting at the RDC Hall of this year’s host Benguet State University, the executive committee composed of school presidents and the technical committee composed of athletic directors decided to have the start of games moved to next Saturday instead of this weekend to give the host time to prepare the venues for the games.

“Save the Date – October 28, 2023: The official opening of the BBEAL Season 34 as approved during the 1st Regional Joint Meeting of Executive and Technical Working Committee,” it was written in the BBEAL Season 34 Facebook page.

BSU has started painting the flooring of the BSU gym.

BSU was supposed to host with the resumption of the BBEAL last year. During a meeting in September last year, the athletic directors convened at the University B where CCDC turned over all the documents, balance from its hosting in 2019 as well as reconvene the executive committee which lost its treasurer during the pandemic, who was forced to resign from work as a result of the lockdown to stop spread of the Covid-19.

Aquino then accepted the responsibility, but the BBEAL never took off despite the start of classes after three years of lockdown.

Also last year, the restart of games in October on a “minimal scale” to accommodate several events that were supposed to include basketball and volleyball.

“We are not sure which sports to include,” Cong-o then said as they need to restart their sports program with many of their athletes unable to play and many graduated.

The other members of the league are the University of the Cordilleras, Saint Louis University, University of the Philippines-Baguio, Pines City College, Baguio Central University and the Philippine Military Academy. Kings College of the Philippines has left the association after the abolition of its sports office.

CCDC last hosted the event in 2019 which was truncated when the city and the country were declared under lockdown due to the pandemic. Pigeon Lobien
