CamSur swimmers join the first Governor Migz Villafuerte Swimming Cup
Representing Camarines Sur is one thing, and representing the country is another.

Facilitated by the Philippine Swimming League (PSL), the 138th PSL Leg Swim Meet and the first ever Governor Migz Villafuerte Swimming Cup was held on June 16, 2018 at the Freedom Sport Complex, San Jose, Pili, Camarines Sur.

Apart from the swimming teams in Bicol, various teams and organizations from Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, Capiz, National Capital Region, Cavite, Davao, Baguio, Laguna, Pampanga, Quezon, and Mindoro joined the event. The swimming cup is a part of the PSL’s grassroots development which aims to train talented swimmers to represent the Philippines in future international competitions.


“This will be a selection for Singapore swimming competition. We are the defending champion in Singapore so we really hope that we can pick swimmers to represent our country and defend our title,” explained Coach Susan Papa, President of PSL.

Out of the hundred swimmers aged 6 to 18, four were chosen to represent the country and they are Lhaarny Agnas, Henrico Soriano, Ma. Veronica Soriano, and Trump Christian Luistro. Luistro is from Albay, while Lhaarny Agnas and brothers and sisters Henrico and Veronica Soriano are students of Camarines Sur Sports Academy. Being students of the academy, the three have already represented Camarines Sur in several meets in the past.

“I am both nervous and excited and, of course, happy because finally we will be representing the Philippines in another country!” exclaimed Agnas, 15 years old. “I want to thank Governor Migz because without this swimming cup, we may not have the chance to represent our country in Singapore,” she added.

The four swimmers will be representing Philippines in the International Invitational Championships in Singapore on August 25-26, 2018 where different Asian countries will come to compete.
