In his speech, Dr. Ryan Mark Molina, executive vice president and chief operations officer of STIWNU and second vice president of the National PRISAA, congratulated all the winners and participants. Molina said the gathering of Negros Island’s athletes from 12 colleges and universities shows the entire Philippines that Negros island is one of the best teams that PRISAA could ever have. He said, the next big event that they will be all preparing for is the upcoming National PRISAA Games in Legazpi City, Albay on July 18 to 26.

“We will try our best to bring all the champions in the 1st NIPRISAA to Legazpi City in July. One of the reasons why we’ve put up NIPRISAA, is to come up with a brand new sports development program for the entire island. Ang gusto naton matabo nga ini ang aton (what we happen to this) association is an association that is able to build one another. Let us show the entire country that we are one team,” Moline urged the athletes, coaches, tournament directors and school heads present during the closing rites.

Aside from host schools STIWNU, USLS, and UNO-R, CSA-B, CSAV; Colegio Santa Catalina De Alejandria (COSCA), Foundation University, John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation, La Consolacion College-Bacolod, North Negros College and VMA Global College participated in this year’s NIPRISAA.
