Published

on

[nextpage title = “Women’s Day 3]

Competitiveness pushed everybody to still perform at a high level despite the wet weather conditions for day three. The day featured records being smashed in the track events and with the University of Santo Tomas (UST) extending their lead after having an aggregate total of 19 medals after the third day.

Track Events

As expected, Jennyrose Rosales of the University of the East (UE) reigned supreme in the 400m qualifying rounds. She is the defending women’s 400m dash champion so all eyes were on her from start to finish. Rosales ranked first in the qualifying round with a time of 54.82 seconds.

Schoolmate and 800m gold medalist Neslee Angco ranked second in the heats with a time of 57.30 seconds – around 3 seconds slower than Rosales. Other qualifiers were Marylyn Avila of Far Eastern University (FEU) who ranked third with a time of 58.76 seconds and Michelle Loterte of UST in rank four with a time of 59.37 seconds.

Immediately after the 400m qualifying rounds were the finals of the women’s 3,000m racewalk. Krisha Sardenia of UST took home the gold medal with a time of 17:13.48. Sardenia finally had her payback as she beat UE’s Marygene Dagasdas who beat her during day one in the 5,000m racewalk. It was an exciting battle for silver between Dagasdas and UST’s Jenelyn Surdilla. However, Dagasdas managed to edge out Surdilla. Dagasdas finished with a time of 17:24.33 to grab the silver medal while Surdilla clocked 17:25.50 to take the bronze medal. These top three finishers were the only ones who clocked a sub-18 minute race.

One hour after the 3,000m walk came the finals of the 400m dash. All eyes were on Rosales who ran in lane three. From gun start, Rosales already ran away from the competition and clocked a time of 54.45 seconds – a new UAAP record. Rosales beat her own record of 54.65 seconds set during last year’s UAAP. Schoolmate Angco finished in silver medal position with a time of 56.52 seconds – more than two seconds slower than Rosales.

The second to the last event of the evening was the women’s 4x100m relay. Although Rosales and Angco proved to be the sprint dynamic duo of the competition, UST’s Denuyo, Loterte, Salcedo, and Luzon dominated the track and set a new UAAP record of 47.35 seconds. They smashed FEU’s record of 47.91 seconds.

This dominant UST relay team was about 1.6 seconds faster than silver medalists DLSU composed of Angel Carino, Leah Creer, Mary Diesto, and Judy Ann Rendora. DLSU finished with a time of 48.91 seconds.

Taking the bronze medal was UE with Rosales, Angco, Peralita Jra Ynot, and Jean Merdred Galicia. UE finished with a time of 49.01 seconds. They were exactly a second faster than fourth place finisher ADMU that was composed of Tricia Severino, Georgia Martelino, Vanessa Baguiwet, and Kimberly Zulueta.

Zulueta’s anchor leg managed to chase down the relay teams of the University of the Philippines (51.11 seconds) and Adamson University (51.78 seconds).

Heptathlon

Day three featured the first four events of the women’s heptathlon which are the 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, and 200m dash.

Marianne Audrey Yorac of UP dominated the 100m hurdles with a time of 15.24 seconds catapulting her into first place after the first event. FEU’s Jee-Ann Racoma trailed by a close second after clocking 15.71 seconds.

Come the high jump however, Yorac pulled away by over 200 points from the competition with a 1.49m jump. Racoma lost her second place position to UST’s Chairy Palermo who scored after jumping 1.55m which was the second best of the afternoon.

In the last two events, Yorac still continued to dominate with a 7.02m throw in the shot put and a 27.04 second run in the 200m. She ended with 2,464 points after the first four events.

Trailing Yorac was UST’s Sarah Dequinan with 2,410 points. Dequinan ran a massive 200m clocking 26.21 seconds.

Coming in third palce was UST’s Palermo who threw 7.10m in the shot put and ran a 26.55 second 200m.

The competition was tight as three other women scored more than 2100 points. The 2100+ points club included FEU’s Racoma with 2,161 points in fourth place, FEU’s Jinny Rose Omena with 2,145 points, and DLSU’s Shaira Hernandez with 2,137 points.

Field Events

First up in the field events was the women’s pole vault. The strong field consisted of defending champion Katrina Baron from UP.

However, Baron only managed to record a vault of 2.80m – over 0.40 m short of last year’s gold medal finish. She would have easily won the gold medal had she jumped her 3.20m vault from last year. Taking this year’s gold medal was Rechelle Mae Abotalmo of UST with a vault of 3.10m. UST’s Sarah Dequinan and FEU’s Kristie Kaye Vinco both jumped 3.00m. Dequinan was awarded the silver medal because Vinco registered more fouls.

In the women’s discus throw, ADMU’s Baguiwet ranked first in the qualifying rounds with a throw of 32.10m. However, she was also juggling the discus throw with the women’s heptathlon. Come the finals, she skipped her first attempt and then fouled her last two attempts. She finished eighth overall with her qualifying throw of 32.10m.

UE’s Reah Joy Sumalpong capitalized on this situation and hurled the discus throw to a 35.77m distance – catapulting her into the gold medal position. UST’s Aira Teodosio was over a meter short of beating Sumalpong with a throw of 34.33m which was good enough for a silver medal. Javelin throw champion Evalyn Palabrica of FEU settled for the bronze medal with a throw of 34.04m – just 0.29m short of the silver medal.

Christian Standhardinger goes perfect from stripe in Hong Kong’s rout of Formosa

Published

on

After going a horrid 5-for-17 from the stripe during their first loss of the season last January 9, Christian Standhardinger made sure to make good on his free throws to power the Hong Kong Eastern Basketball Club to a dominant 99-79 rout of the Formosa Dreamers, Thursday evening in Southorn Stadium.

The 6-foot-8 Filipino-German, who tallied 37 points and 19 rebounds in the overtime loss to Saigon, went a perfect 9-for-9 from the foul line. He finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

The contest itself was not close, as the defending champions were able to impose their will on the bottom-ranked squad, leading by as much as 23 points, 93-70, after two free throws by Standhardinger with 2:58 remaining.

If Standhardinger was having a good day with his free throws, the entire Formosa squad could not say the same, going 13-of-27 from the line.

Tyler Lamb had 25 markers as well for Hong Kong, while Marcus Elliott grabbed a triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.

Lenny Daniel paced Formosa with 25 points and 11 rebounds. World Import Ronnie Aguilar had 14 points and 16 rebounds but went just 5-for-14 from the field.

With the win, Hong Kong goes to 8-1, while the Dreamers fell to 1-8.

2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup

Chooks-to-Go President hopes 3×3 World Cup breaks Philippine Arena record

Published

on

Last October 27, 2017, Game Seven of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals between heated rivals Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Meralco Bolts saw 54,083 people troop to the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan. The attendance broke all records for both the venue and the PBA.

Come June this year, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and Chooks-to-Go are hoping that the upcoming 2018 FIBA 3×3 World Cup will surpass that record.

“We look at 3×3 as our best hope, really, to get a medal in the Olympics. Kami naman sa Chooks, we are behind SBP realizing that dream. Kanina pinag-uusapan na, if we’re going to break the record in attendance,” said Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas on Thursday afternoon during a press conference held at BGC High Street in Taguig.

“I think the question there is not if we’re going to break, but how many more times. Because FIBA should see how passionate the Filipinos are about basketball. That’s a given,” one of the patrons of Gilas Pilipinas added.

Besides the event itself, the local government of Bulacan has pledged to make the week of the tournament filled with activities to celebrate the Philippines’ 120th year of Independence.

For their part, Chooks-to-Go vowed to help out the SBP in organizing the event and in building the team.

“We are throwing our support not to improve on our finish, but we want to help SBP organize, to win the championship — not just to improve our ranking,” Mascariñas shared.

And the experience he and his company gained after backing the Pilipinas 3×3 team during last year’s tournament will only help.

“In past tournaments, we’ve lost some games na maninipis lang talaga,” he recalled about the team composed of Kobe Paras, Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng, and JR Quinahan that competed in Nantes, France.

“This time around, with five months to go, we need to organize and put in the best t

Ilocos United takes leave from PFL

Published

on

Another one bites the dust

After months of speculation, Ilocos United has formally announced their absence from the Philippines Football League for the 2018 season.

A statement signed by Ilocos Chief Executive Officer Tony Lazaro and posted on the club’s Facebook page broke the big news.

“Unfortunately, after months of negotiation, efforts to attract a new naming sponsor for the Team were unsuccessful,” the statement opened. “Consequently, it has become financially prohibitive to continue participation in the PFL.

“Primarily, the lack of broadcasting exposure in 2017 created an apprehension in the corporate community, cascading into a series of afflictions that has ultimately led to our withdrawal from the competition.”

Ilocos finished last during the inaugural season, tallying 1 win, 6 draws, and 21 losses with a -49 goal differential.

Still, Ilocos gave their thanks to those who supported the club during the inaugural PFL season.

“We are cautiously optimistic of a potential return to the PFL for the 2019 season, whereby secured broadcasting exposure will hopefully lead to higher confidence from potential sponsorship partners.”

While their PFL operations will fold for the time being, Ilocos will continue the grassroots programs they have started within the area. ¨In the meantime, the foundation of football development we helped to build in Ilocos will continue, including grassroots initiatives at local schools, women’s futsal, Special Olympics, and, of course, the IUFC Academy.¨

The latest development will be another big blow for the young league. Meralco Manila pulled out of the competition beforehand, and now Ilocos´ absence leaves only six teams in the competition.

Now more than ever, something needs to be done by the PFL or even the Philippine Football Federation to ensure the feasibility of the clubs and the league itself for years to come.

Football is a hard sport to build in the Philippines despite its resurgence since 2010. There are limited corporate boosters for the sport which is in dire need of a financial push to sustain its growth.

Ilocos´ leave and Meralco´s folding now forces local football´s stakeholders to take a step back and examine the next moves to build the sport.

Basketball

CJ Perez, Jaycee Marcelino in unison: D-League is a whole other level

Published

on

After falling just two games short of copping Lyceum’s first-ever NCAA crown, the Pirates went to the PBA D-League to gain experience. However, in their first foray in the second league, the Lyceans realized that it was a whole different beast.

Going up against the veteran-laden Marinerong Pilipino Skippers, the Zark’s Burgers-backed squad suffered a slow start as they adjusted to the tougher calls of the league. The Jawbreakers were down by as much as 17 points early in the third frame, 37-54.

“Yung physicality hindi naman ako masyadong nagulat pero sa mental toughness, yung pagod ka na, tapos may babanggga pa sa ‘yo, ang iniisip ko kailangan mas maging tough,” admitted reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player CJ Perez.

“Nangangapa kami nung una lahat kasi first game namin ito, pati dito sa court na ‘to first game din namin,” added Jaycee Marcelino.

It served as a wake-up call. Adjusting on the fly, Perez and Marcelino rallied the Jawbreakers back — even fashioning multiple attempts to take over the contest late in the game. However, they fell short, 92-94.

“Binalik lang namin yung laro namin dati, pass the ball, hindi yung puro dribble, i-run lang namin yung plays,” shared Marcelino, as he and Perez combined to score 16 points in the final frame.

The 21-year-old Marcelino finished with a game-high 20 points on an efficient 7-of-9 shooting to go along with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block. The 24-year-old Perez added 19 points, five assists, two steals, and a block.

With their first game in the bag, the duo — and the rest of the Jawbreakers — now have the experience under their belts. And they plan to put in the work to prove that they belong.

“Sa NC naman kasi puro ka-level namin kalaro namin, dito puro beterano ang naglalaro,” said Marcelino. “Hindi talaga namin masabi na yung ginawa namin sa NC magagawa din namin dito.

“Mageextra work pa kami para masustain namin kung ano kami sa Lyceum.”

“It’s a good experience. Ibang iba pala talaga yung laro ng D-League sa NCAA,” expressed Perez, who is a consensus top three pick for the upcoming PBA Rookie Draft.

“Sobrang grateful kami na nakalaro na rin kami sa D-League.”
