“I am proud of the triumph of the youth of Colegio San Benito. In Puerto Rico we are fortunate to have a wealth of talent that proves its worth in every competition outside the Island. My congratulations to their coaches for guiding them and their parents for always supporting them,” said the Secretary of the Department of Recreation and Sports (DRD). ), Ray J. Quiñones Vázquez.

For its part, the female representation of ECEDAO had an outstanding intervention upon reaching the semifinal round.
