“Now we will have to unlock the full potential of NCRAA with the participation of each school and each member of the varsity teams. We will try to make our presence felt. On that note ladies and gentlemen, by virtue of the powers given to me by your NCRAA board, I now declare the 26th season of NCRAA officially opened. Let the games begin!” said general manager Buddy Encarnado, as he officially declared the opening of the season.
