“Tournaments like these benefit the students academically because the farther they go towards the nationals they are noticed and scouted by bigger teams and sponsors thus allowing them to be accepted to different universities and further their education by utilizing their skills and abilities,” Ms. Aimee Pareno, coach, said in an interview. “We are looking for students with height qualifications but students who have interest and passion, the skills we can hone through practice,” She added.

Ms. Pareno is grateful to the Iliganons and their supporters, saying: ”Thank you to all Iliganons and LGU Iligan for the support of the team. We are not only training hard and building the characters of these young athletes but also to give pride and honor to our school, our family and our city,” Together with their coach, Ms. Pareno, the team promises to do their best and work hard to stay as one of the top-performing teams in the region.
