LAGAWE, Ifugao – Team Baguio survived the scorching heat of a dry spell to once again lord it over their Cordilleran counterparts as dust settled in the 2010 Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association meet on Feb.  11,  here.

Baguio’s elementary level athletes painted Ifugao blue with the boys amassing 194.5 points and the girls’ 148 to bag the championship trophy in the elementary division, piling up 342.5 points.
