There were no surprises for the top spot in the annual Competitions for the Highlands as Baguio came up with another dominating performance to retain its top billing by a wide margin. Host Apayao and Abra, however, made a splash in the leaderboard by dislodging perennial second placer Benguet from its usual spot.

Overall Championship
Delegation Total Medals Rank
Gold Silver Bronze
Baguio 205 110 79 1st
Apayao 69 76 79 2nd
Abra 39 48 88 3rd
Benguet 35 66 83 4th
Ifugao 27 48 70 5th
Mt. Prov. 16 25 44 6th
Tabuk City 12 29 37 7th
Kalinga 6 6 20 8th

The host did not disappoint the local crowd by improving their fifth place finish last year’s 7-team event all the way up to  to second in this year’s 8-team field. On the other hand, Abra, last year’s host, climbed from fourth to third.

The playing field grew up to eight this year because Kalinga and Tabuk City were entered as rivals, fielding their own line-ups.
