UAAP Season 77 Men’s Track and Field Day 2 Recap

Published

on

[nextpage title = “Men’s Day 2”]
Two teams separated themselves from the rest of the pack. Only two universities were able to bring home the gold medals for the day. Reigning UAAP champions Far Eastern University brought home 2 out of the 4 gold medals to be contested for on the 2nd day of competition for the UAAP’s 77th season. Consistent 1st runner-up to FEU’s 4-peat reign as champions was University of Sto. Tomas, as they brought home the other two gold medals for the day. Both schools know that they are well above the rest of the field in terms of the championship and this will be an even more interesting 3 days of competition as FEU’s lead over UST in the medal count isn’t too far of. On an individual level, the athletes weren’t to be outdone by their team’s overall performances as the day was highlighted with repeats by former champions, surprisingly poor performances of favorites, success stories, and even the passing of the torch.

Track Events

Clinton Bautista of FEU proved to be a strong bid for the season’s Most Valuable Player award for track and field as he collects his 2nd gold medal in the 200m dash. He ran 22.24 seconds in an event which saw the top 6 finishers breaking the 23-second barrier. Coming in 2nd was University of the Philippine’s Gabriel Soriano who clocked in at 22.46 seconds and bagged UP’s 2nd silver medal on top of 1 bronze medal. What surprised some of the members of the audience were the sub-par performances of some of the top sprinters in the Philippines. Both Patrick Unso of De La Salle University and FEU’s Isidro del Prado Jr. ran poorly in the finals which could hint possible signs of fatigue, injury, or in some cases even a strategic move on the part of their coaches’ orders. Both athletes who ran below 22.70 seconds in the qualifying rounds didn’t run their usual races but look for their respective teams to pick up the slack as DLSU is still in the running to crack the top 3 while FEU holds a slim lead over UST.

Given that dethroning FEU is still a possibility, UST still keeps their championship hopes alive with strong showings from their top guns. Neri Elbren finally won the elusive gold medal in the 800m run with a time of 1:52.85 seconds, finishing 4 seconds faster than everyone else. After years of finishing 1st runner-up to FEU distance running legend Christopher Ulboc, Elbren posted a clinic as he ran towards a personal best finish. Finishing in 2nd place was FEU’s Jomar Angus only to be followed by DLSU’s Erwin Parcon. Angus and Parcon gave the crowd a treat with their head to head finish in the last 200 meters or so of the race. Angus 1:56.73 seconds only to be followed by Parcon who clocked in .43 seconds after Angus dove towards the finish line. For a middle distance event, 43 tenths of a second is fairly close. The event also saw a familiar surname in terms of track and field legends in the Philippines. Michael del Prado, the 2nd son of the famed “Gintong Alay” athlete Isidro del Prado Sr. The younger del Prado, who was recently crowned as the 400m champion in this year’s Unigames in Iloilo, finished 7th in the event but look for this trackster from DLSU to showcase his skills in his father’s and his bread and butter event; the 400m dash.

In the 10,000m walk, the team from España sandwiched a silver medal performance by Jong Penetrado from FEU by grabbing the gold amd bronze medals in the event. Gold medalist and UST trackster Dave Gumacal was the only athlete to finish the race in under 1 hour with a masterful 55:15.93 second finish while his teammate John Lamaclamac finished the race in 1:02:06.84 seconds.

Decathlon Update

Janry Ubas. After being crowned champion in 3 individual events last season, Season 77 UAAP Decathlon Champion Ubas shatters the old record by scoring 6,549 points. Ubas never let up as he already had a sizeable advantage over his training partner Mark De Los Santos even after 5 events. Prior to the pole vault, Ubas was only up by 530 points over De Los Santos. Prior to the 1500m run, Ateneo de Manila University’s Joseph Capinpin was 3rd in the standings but was closely trailed by another trackster from FEU Rejohnn Gadian, and UST’s Rogue Lesondra. Prior to the 1500m run the standings were close for the 3rd spot on the podium as all three athletes were just within striking distance of each other. Capinpin, Gadian, and Lesondra were all battling for it in the 1500m run but Lesondra’s conditioning paid off as he was able to ward off any advances from Capinpin and Gadian and took the bronze medal in what was a tightly-contested event.

FEU Clear First. Silver and Bronze finishes aren’t final yet

If the total medal count will be the only basis, then FEU will already be a shoo-in for the championship but since the overall basis would be the point total, look for UST to have 2 or 3 athletes at least in the top 8 in order for them to still snag the top spot from FEU. With 5 total medals, UST will rely on past champions to repeat their performances with several jumping events still to be decided. De La Salle University is not the school to sleep on as they are still in the running as well, with 1 gold medal and 2 bronze medals so far, they are heading into the days of competition where they are heavy favorites with the relays coming up. The boys from Taft are still banking on events where they are considered favorites such as the relays, the 400m hurdles, and the 400m dash. With the same medal count as DLSU, UP will have their hands full in chasing DLSU for that podium finish but with some of their top athletes still yet to perform in the past 2 days, expect them to make the next few days of competition exciting and closely contested.

Marc Pingris wants Rafi Reavis to break Robert Jaworski’s record

Published

on

Marc Pingris was all praises for veteran Rafi Reavis Saturday night, as the 40-year-old center made his presence felt in the Magnolia Hotshots’ 97-91 victory — their third straight win — over Phoenix Fuel Masters at the Cuneta Astrodome.

The six-foot-nine Reavis finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds, and three blocks — a performance perfectly punctuated by a follow-up of a Paul Lee miss with 12.5 seconds left to play that knocked out the Fuel Masters for good.

“Papasalamat ako kay Rafi na talagang kababalik lang niya pero binigay niya talaga lahat,” said Pingris after the bout, as Saturday night was just Reavis’ second outing in the 2018 Philippine Cup after recovering from a hip injury.

“Nag-usap nga kami kanina e, hindi pa siya 100 percent. So bukas, ang sabi niya babalik daw siya sa gym dahil gusto niya ibalik yung lakas ng legs dahil wala pa daw,” added the 36-year-old, who also suffered a hip injury last season.

Reavis has been playing in the league for 16 years. Seeing the work he has put in, Pingris, who finished the game with 17 rebounds, four assists, four points and two blocks, believes that the 10-time PBA champion can play for 10 more years — at least.

“You know naman Rafi eh, katulad ko rin yan eh – rebound and depensa. At tsaka sobrang vocal siya sa team eh,” beamed Pingris, who himself is a 14-year veteran. “Walang siyang inaano, talagang sinasabihan niya kung sino yung mga nagmi-mistake, kung paano kami mag-adjust, so nakikinig naman lahat sa kanya.

“Talagang nandun yung respeto namin kay Rafi.”

And if Reavis stays healthy for the next decade, Pingris wants Reavis to exceed Jaworki’s 958 games played — third most all time.

“Nasa kanya yun, basta kaya mo ba eh. As a player, kung masipag ka naman at may disiplina sa sarili mo, kaya niya yun.”

Still, Reavis has a lot of catching up to do.

Altas surge to fifth straight win, slam Heavy Bombers

Published

on

Pulling double-digit scoring outings from three spikers, the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas remained unbeaten in NCAA Season 93 after a straight-set triumph over thr Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, 25-17, 25-16, 25-20, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Middle blocker Ronniel Rosales topped the Altas with 13 points off 10 attacks and three blocks. Team captain Rey Taneo and Joebert Almodiel added 12 markers apiece.

The Altas dominated every scoring category, recording 44 attacks to JRU’s 26, five blocks to the Bombers’ zero, and three aces to JRU’s one.

Breezing through the first half of the season, Altas head coach Sammy Acaylar lauded his team’s consistency and hoped they continue getting better as they aim for a championship.

“So far, masasabi kong maganda ang nilalaro ng mga bata. Consistent naman ang mga galaw nila and focused sila sa mga laban,” said Acaylar.

“Pero alam nilang may ibubuga pa sila. We still need to get better and reach the championship level. Kailangan hindi mawala ‘yung ganito naming killer instinct,” the decorated mentor added.

The Altas take on a major test on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre when they face fellow undefeated squad Arellano Chiefs (4-0).

Wenjo Lahaylahay led the Bombers with 10 points while captain Patrick Rabaja managed seven.

JRU (0-5) limps into their Wednesday showdown against defending champs College of Saint Benilde (3-1).

The Scores

UPHSD (3) – Rosales 13, Almodiel 12, Taneo R. 12, Muhali 7, Ramos 5, Atentar 1, Catipay 1, Salo 1, Bation 0, Solamilo 0, Taneo S. 0, Kalingking (L)

Mixed Martial Arts

Rene Catalan continues rampage with TKO win

Published

Rene Catalan continues to turn critics into believers

Filipino fighter Rene Catalan made his sixth appearance inside the ONE Championship cage at ONE: Kings of Courage, held at the Jakarta Convention Center in Indonesia, Saturday evening. He faced 21-year-old Chinese athlete Peng Xue Wen in the opening main card bout, and leaned on his elite wushu skills to stop the young star at the 4:22 mark of the second round.

The victory improves Catalan’s record to 4-2 (1 NC), extends his winning streak to four, and gives him the first TKO stoppage of his martial arts career, as he bids to climb the strawweight ladder in search of the ONE Strawweight World Championship.

“The Challenger” came out in the southpaw stance to open the bout, throwing big hooks and a head kick that narrowly missed as he established the center of the cage from the start of the contest.

The Filipino landed a host of powerful strikes, including a perfectly-placed uppercut and a melee of punishing leg kicks, but Peng’s conditioning and composure kept him in the match as he looked to stand and trade with the man 18 years his elder.

Catalan picked up where he left off when the bout resumed in the second round, this time operating out of the orthodox stance, landing more leg kicks and continuing to deny Peng any space to work.

Despite his dominance on the feet, there was a brief moment of concern for the Filipino on the mat when he jumped into the Chinese wrestler’s guard mid-way through the second round, and immediately found himself in a triangle choke. But the Filipino kept his composure and managed to work himself free.

Once the fighters returned to their feet, Catalan poured on the pressure in search of a finish, and he got it with just 38 seconds remaining in the stanza.

“The Challenger” scored big with a liver shot, then unloaded a fierce flurry of punches that forced Peng onto his back foot. Another shot forced Peng to the mat, where a salvo of ground and pound from Catalan eventually forced the TKO stoppage as referee Olivier Coste stepped in to halt the contest.

Gelo Alolino regrets Phoenix’s failure to close out Hotshots

Published

on

Photo by PBA Images

Gelo Alolino had his best game for the Phoenix Fuel Masters on Saturday night at the Cuneta Astrodome with 19 points, eclipsing his previous career-high of 16 markers which he made last May 21, 2017 in a loss to the Mahindra Floodbuster.

But his achievement won’t be too memorable, as it went for naught following a 91-97 defeat at the hands of Paul Lee and the Magnolia Hotshots, who have now collected their third straight victory.

For the second overall pick in the regular 2016 Rookie Draft, it was all because of their failure to sustain momentum up until the game’s final buzzer.

“Sayang, nandun na. We felt na sa amin na nung dulo kaso lang ganun talaga,” rued the 24-year-old sophomore after the match, where he shot an excellent 7-of-10 from the floor.

“Breaks of the game napunta sa kabila.”

Phoenix were in contention all throughout the match. In fact, they were even ahead, 89-84, with just three minutes left to play. But the Hotshots’ comeback skills were unleashed, leading to the narrow win.

“Siyempre kami lahat nasayangan. Maganda naman yung team effort talaga namin,” admitted the 6-foot floor general of their end-game collapse, which wasted their efforts in assists (21) and on defense, where they forced Magnolia to 21 turnovers.

“Kami as players talagang gusto namin bumawi coming from a loss last game sa Rain or Shine.

The Fuel Masters have now lost their second straight outing and have dropped to 2-3. And for Alolino, all they have to do is learn as much as they can from this loss, especially now that they are about to face the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel next.

“Yun nga. Medyo masakit para sa’min ‘to,” admitted the National University product.

“All we have to do is magviview ulit kami ng tape para makita kung saan kami mas pwede mag-improve as a team and bawat isa — including me.”
