Dagupan team bags NBA 3X3 national championship

FOUR young Dagupeñas, members of the Balon Dagupan team, bagged gold medals to win the 8th NBA 3X3 championships held at the SM Mall of Asia from August 24 to 26.

Jane De Vera of the University of Luzon (UL), Rosemarie Delos Santos of St. Albert the Great School (SAGS), Regimay Castres of St. John Cathedral School (SJCS) and Fiona Kixsha Camangeg of SAGS displayed their shooting prowess in besting five other teams in the under 18 category in 3×3 basketball.

The Balon Dagupan team was earlier named champion after beating five teams during the North Luzon Qualifiers of the NBA 3X3 Competition held at Benguet State University from August 11 to 12.

The four girls trained under the auspices of the Dagupan City Sports Commission (DCSC) under DCSC Commissioner Jack Vidal and Coaches Byron Jake Vidal and Jeff Vitales.
