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

Published

on

[nextpage title = “Women’s Day 2”]
Day Two of the Women’s UAAP Track and Field Championships was met with personal bests from all of the events. The University of Santo Tomas (UST) continued to dominate the competition ending their second day rally with an aggregate medal tally of 11 medals constituting of 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals, and 4 bronze medals.

Track Events

The afternoon session kicked off with the women’s 800m final. Top seed runner Jennyrose Rosales of the University of the East (UE) started off strong from gun start and took the lead early on in the race. Come the 700m mark however, signs of fatigue were becoming more and more evident per stride and her teammate Neslee Angco capitalized on this situation. Angco sprinted the last 100m to finish with a time of 2:12.55 which is about 3-4 seconds away from the bronze medal time from the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 2013. Louielyn Pamatian of UST almost threatened Rosales of the silver medal coming to the finish line but Rosales held her position tightly and finished with a time of 2:13.40 while Pamatian finished hers with 2:13.97, just half a second short of beating Rosales.

The women’s 800m performance has been one of the fastest ones in recent years. The top three finishers hit massive personal bests (PBs) and are only seconds away from the SEA Games bronze medal standard which is based from 2013.

Two hours later came the women’s 200m dash qualifying round which still featured 800m gold and silver medalists Angco and Rosales. The two UE superstars did not show signs of fatigue as both registered impressive times in the heats.

Rosales ranked number one in the heats with a qualifying time of 25.23 seconds while her schoolmate Angco sprinted to a 25.52 second third place qualifying finish. The 100m gold, silver, and bronze medalists from UST all qualified for the 200m also. Eloiza Luzon ranked second in the qualifying round with a time of 25.36 seconds while her schoolmates Glaiza Salcedo and Michelle Loterte ranked fourth and fifth with times of 25.70 and 25.99 seconds respectively. Aldee Faith Denuyo, who is also from UST, clocked 26.19 seconds to solidify UST’s sprint dominance with all four of their entries qualifying for the finals.

After the boys’ 3,000m run which started after the 200m qualifying rounds came the women’s 10,000m run. It was a long and competitive race as the pack was tight and in unison. However, UST’s Jila Dela Rosa managed to pull through with the victory after clocking 40:56.80 to finish the 25-lap race with another gold medal for UST. Catherine Bristol and Mae Ann Gongob from both the Far Eastern University (FEU) both raced it out but with Bristol running away with the silver medal with a time of 41:06.82. Gongob finished around two seconds slower with a time of 41:08.34.

An hour long wait was again present in the arena as the audience awaited the start of the 200m dash finals. Audience members could vaguely see some of the finalists already preparing in the warm-up area as the 10,000m run was ongoing.

In the finals, it was Rosales who was back with a vengeance after losing her 100m dash title to run away with the gold medal with a time of 24.73 seconds – just some milliseconds away from her own UAAP record of 24.73 seconds. Luzon tried to chase Rosales down in the home stretch (the last 100m) but Rosales held on ever so tightly to win that gold. Luzon eventually finished with a time of 24.95 seconds. Angco, the 800m gold medalist from earlier in the day, managed to edge out 100m silver and bronze medalists Salcedo and Loterte to nab the bronze medal with a time of 25.54 seconds; Salcedo and Loterte both finished fourth and fifth with both sprinters registering 25.55 seconds. Salcedo was awarded the fourth place finish after the photo finish review. The rankings from the heats were coincidentally exactly the same from the finals but with the finals being run significantly faster. The 200m dash was the final event of the evening for the women’s division.

Field Events

The Javelin Throw was the only throwing event for the day which featured three former Palarong Pambansa champions. The defending women’s javelin throw champion and also the 2012 Palarong Pambansa javelin throw champion Evalyn Palabrica pulled off with a major victory with a PB throw of 48.25 meters (m) which shattered the old record of 46.12m set by Faith Cabrera who was also from FEU.

Palabrica’s schoolmate and 2013 Palarong Pambansa Champion Jerremay Rubias nabbed the bronze medal from Jenelyn Arle of the University of the Philippines with a throw of 42.70m. Arle who was the 2012 Palarong Pambansa javelin throw bronze medalist settled for the bronze medal with a throw of 40.87m. All three medalists were the only ones who threw more than 40 meters. In fourth place came 2014 Palarong Pambansa Champion Zianne Faith Cabrera who was 2m short of a bronze medal with a throw of 38.20m.

With the two UAAP Season 76 Triple Jump gold and silver medalists graduating, the battle was anyone’s game. Season 76 bronze medalist Peralita Jra Ynot of UE failed to improve on last year’s mark and only managed to jump 11.35m which was 0.2m short of last year’s podium finish record. This year’s competition is tougher so even if she managed to jump her 11.55m mark from last year, it would have merited her only a fifth place finish. The strong field featured a 12.20m jump which is 0.7m farther than last year’s. The golden jump was made by Chairy Palermo of UST which gave UST yet another gold medal. Angelica Janda and Kristie Kaye Vinco grabbed the silver and bronze medal positions for FEU with jumps of 11.83m and 11.79m respectively.

Fired-up Von Pessumal on Kiefer Ravena incident: ‘I’m not here to make any friends’

Published

on

Will bridges be burned?

Von Pessumal was heavily scrutinized on Friday evening after an incident with fellow Ateneo lifer Kiefer Ravena.

It took place with 9:50 left in the final frame of the San Miguel Beermen’s highly-charged tilt against the NLEX Road Warriors. After Marcio Lassiter launched a trey, Pessumal looked like he was aiming for the rebound. Instead, he simply charged towards Ravena and pushed him down.

Lassiter’s three-pointer counted, while Pessumal, who was blocked by Ravena during a fastbreak and then received a staredown moments prior, was whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul.

It was a surprising sight to see considering the amount of time he and Ravena have spent together — a bond that started when they were in high school. Even the second-generation star admitted that he did not expect that from his former running body.

“I did not expect that at all,” said the NLEX rookie.

But Pessumal downplayed the incident despite attempts by scribes to make him elaborate on what had really transpired during that moment.

“It’s part of the game. It’s part of the game,” the league sophomore said after the match which they won 109-98. “I don’t wanna say anything, I’m sorry.

“It’s part of the game. Whatever move on. Not a big deal.”

Asked if he was motivated to face Ravena — with whom he had shared three UAAP juniors titles, two UAAP seniors crowns, and a SEA Games gold medal — the 24-year-old shared that he had approached Friday’s bout the way he usually does.

“I wouldn’t say motivated [versus Kiefer], I mean, it’s just like any other game. When I play, I don’t see who’s guarding me, I just play,” said the 6-foot-2 swingman.

“I play to win all the time.”

The incident he and Ravena figured in shadowed his performance of 10 points on 50 percent shooting off the bench — the second time he has scored in double figures this season. After Friday, Pessumal is averaging 8.25 points.

“We have to sustain the level of excellence that they (starters) have. Our job is — I wouldn’t say support, but — when we get in, we should bring the level higher so when they come back, the game is easier for them,” he said.

Pessumal was then asked if he and Ravena met each other after the buzzer sounded, as the two did not even shake hands after the contest. But, through a short yet strong response, the 24-year-old said that they did not.

“I wouldn’t say anything. I don’t know, after the game?,” he expressed.

“I’m a professional basketball player, I’m not here to make any friends.”

Yeng Guiao denies using racial slur against Chris Ross

Published

on

During the post-game of the San Miguel Beermen’s victory over the NLEX Road Warriors, reigning Coach of the Year Leo Austria said that NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao called Chris Ross the “N” word that caused the commotion.

According to Chris, tinawagan siya ng nigger or ganiyan,” said Austria. “I don’t know but that’s what he explained to me because I confronted Chris Ross because he’s one of the most important players in my team.

“But that’s the thing he doesn’t want to hear so nagflare up yung bata so I cannot blame him.”

Guiao though denied that he blurted out racial slurs against San Miguel’s Chris Ross.

“Hindi. Hindi ko tinawag na N-word. Ewan ko kung may nakarinig. Pero hindi,” clarified the fiery tactician moments after their 98-109 defeat, their third straight after starting the 2018 Philippine Cup with two straight wins.

That tussle, according to Guiao, was just filled with trash talking against each other, as he felt the need to retaliate. In fact, Guiao was even caught by the TV camera saying “son of a bitch” towards the Filipino-American point guard.

“Daldal siya ng daldal eh. Eh sa akin naman kapag ganon, siguro respeto nalang. Lumayo ka nalang tutal mananalo naman na kayo,” he said. “I didn’t understand what he was saying, what he was talking about.

“Nakipagtrash-talking din ako sa kanya.”

Furthermore, the 58-year-old was also caught by the cameras flipping the bird — in one quick motion — also against Ross.

“Oo. Kasama na rin yun.

“Pero ano naman eh, it’s part of, siguro, psychological warfare. Malakas din siya mang-asar. Hindi lang naman sa amin. Everytime naman na mga ganoong skirmishes, he also knows what he’s capable of,” the seven-time champion coach furthered.

But more than this scuffle, it really has become a stressful time for Guiao and the Road Warriors. They have now went down to 2-3 in the team standings, and the mentor sees the great need to end this slump immediately.

“We have to arrest it very soon. Ang susunod na laro namin ay versus Rain or Shine sa Friday. So we need to go back to 50 percent win-loss level para at least may chance ka na maka-playoffs. That’s going to be a crucial game for us,” he stressed.

Kiefer Ravena shocked with Von Pessumal’s shove: ‘I did not expect that at all’

Published

on

Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal have been teammates ever since they were in high school, winning three UAAP juniors crowns together. They won two championships together in the seniors level and even played together in Gilas. They were inseparable.

Friday evening however, they were playing for separate camps.

Ravena admitted that he never expected a shove to come from Pessumal during the NLEX Road Warriors’ clash with San Miguel Beermen.

In an off-ball situation, Pessumal charged at Ravena, sending the rookie down to the floor with 9:50 remaining in the final frame. He was then whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul, and Ravena sank one from the line.

“I did not expect that at all,” admitted Ravena after the match in which they lost, 98-109 — their third straight defeat after a 2-0 start. “But hopefully Von doesn’t take it personal.

“I’m just doing my job. They won the game.”

Ravena insisted that there wasn’t any physicality between him and Pessumal prior to that, but he thinks that his former Gilas teammate may have gotten irked by his staredown after blocking him on a fastbreak play early in the fourth.

“When that fastbreak happened — the same exact possession na I challenged him, I looked at him, and after that yun na yung nangyari,” said the 23-year-old guard. “But I never instigated something to provoke Von to do that.

“Probably nung tinignan ko siya.”

Moreover, the second overall pick of the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft felt that that incident “started all the commotions during the end game (laughs). Yun yung pinaka-una eh. And with that, the team got fired up and it worked for them.”

He may be right, for the game saw more skirmishes after that: from teammate Michael Miranda kicking Chris Ross to the groin, and with his head coach Yeng Guiao figuring in a heated verbal war also against Ross.

But then, Ravena made it clear that it was never a plan of his to put down somebody, especially someone like Pessumal who he sees as a brother for life.

“You know, Von and I, we go way back. Things like this hopefully don’t become too personal.

“I have no intention na ipapahiya yung tao or sasaktan mo yung tao. Wala namang ganun. Laro-laro lang,” said NLEX’s leading scorer.

It was somehow a night to remember for Ravena, but for all the wrong reasons. After Friday’s loss that sent their card to 2-3, the veteran internationalist now sees the need for him and the Road Warriors to push the panic button.

“‘Di na pwedeng sabihin palaging kailangan namin matuto eh. Pangatlong sunod na,” the second-generation cager expressed.

“Kailangan siguro naming umaksyon.”

Downcast Chris Ross chooses to stay mum after heated altercation with Yeng Guiao

Published

on

Through wins or losses, Chris Ross has always accommodated the members of the press asking for interviews and fans requesting for photo ops every after game. But Friday evening, the nine-year pro was despondent.

Visibly agitated with the events that had transpired during the San Miguel Beermen’s tilt against the NLEX Road Warriors, Ross, with his hoodie covering his head, left the Cuneta Astrodome without saying a word.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year had figured in physical play after physical play and verbal exchange after verbal exchange with the frustrated Road Warriors.

Ross and Alex Mallari were both slapped with technicals after a confrontation with 9:06 left. This was just the start of many things to come for the Filipino-American defensive specialist

After knocking down a triple and receiving a taunt from Ross, Michael Miranda was assessed a disqualifying foul for an apparent kick to the groin against Ross with 4:35 left.

The tip of the iceberg came with 1:46 left to play and the game all but settled.

Yeng Guiao and Ross figured in a heated word war that resulted in Ross’ second technical foul for the game. Referees and players from both sides had to separate the two to prevent things from escalating.

San Miguel coach Leo Austria alleged that the fiery NLEX mentor said the “N” word, while some said Guiao called Ross a “bitch”.

Ross finished the game with four points, eight rebounds, and four steals in 37 minutes of action.

For sure, penalties and suspensions will come out of this game.

And it was better for Ross to stay silent.
