Sansarona led the Marawi City contingent to the ongoing meet of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Athletic Association (ARMMAA) held at Upi, Maguindanao to show that despite the crisis that befell their city, they should not allow their students and pupils to be hindered in their aspiration for education excellence, be it in academic or sports.
