DAVAO DEL NORTE—Six provinces in Luzon are reportedly vying to host the 2016 Palarong Pambansa.

On the heels of the successful Palarong Pambansa held here, Albay, Cagayan Valley, Pangasinan, Camarines Sur, Pampanga and Bulacan have expressed intention to stage the annual sporting meet for elementary and high school students.

Mentioned  as Palaro sites are Guinobatan in Albay, Tuguegarao in Cagayan Valley, 2012 host Lingayen in Pangasinan, Naga in Camarines Sur and Bocaue in Bulacan.


Department of Education assistant secretary Tonisito Umali praised Davao del Norte for the 2015 staging.


“Davao del Norte was very impressive from start to finish,” Umali said.

National Capital Region once again reigned supreme with a haul of 98 golds, 67 silvers and 71 bronzes while Calabarzon was a far second with a 51-41-59 haul.   Host Davao Region failed to fulfill its vow to finish in the top five as it wound up ninth with 13-22-30 tally
