UAAP Season 77 Women’s Track and Field Day 1 Recap

Published

[nextpage title = “Women’s Day 1”]
Stars were born, records were set, and immortals were brought down. Day one of the 77th installment of the UAAP Track and Field Championships was already jam-packed with a lot of action.

Track Events

In the sprint events, the 100m dash showcased a highly competitive field even during the qualifying round. This event saw the three-year defending women’s 100m dash champion Jennryrose Rosales of the UE set a new UAAP Fully Automated Timing (FAT) record of 11.90 seconds, breaking her own record of 12.40 seconds set in season 75. Rosales became the first ever woman in UAAP history to break the 12-second barrier.

Other competitors in the 100m dash such as Eloiza Luzon, Glaiza Salcedo, and Michelle Loterte, who all hail from UST were also showing signs of bringing down the great Rosales herself.

An hour and a half later, a familiar face appeared before the crowd during the qualifying rounds of the women’s 800m. It was Jennyrose Rosales of UE once again stepping up to the women’s middle distance category to try and extend her gold medal count and point contribution to her team. She didn’t fail to deliver as she ranked first in the qualifying round with a time of 2:14.51 which faster than her 800m veteran competitors. The finals of the 800m will be on day two of the competition.

Another qualifying round in the women’s division during the afternoon session was the 100m hurdles. UST’s Michelle Loterte dominated the event clocking 14.83 seconds which was well over an eighth of a second faster than the second place qualifier Marianne Audrey Yorac of the University of the Philippines who clocked 15.41 seconds. The highly contested qualifying round of the women’s 100m hurdles ended the afternoon session of the competition.

The 12-lap 5000m racewalk was the first event of the evening session. The event was unpredictable from the beginning until around the last three laps as the lead pack was in strong unison. It only became clear who were in it for the medal contention around the last 3 laps. Marygene Dagasdas and Edry-Anne Diaz of UE broke away from the pack and won gold and silver with a time of 29:13.04 and 29:15.83 respectively. They were well ahead of bronze medalist Krisha Sardenia of UST who tried to stay close to them during the race but managed to finish with a time of 29:41.78 which is still a fast time. The top three finishers of the event were the only athletes who clocked a sub-30 minute for the event.

The finals of the 100m dash had Jennyrose Rosales as the top seed in everybody’s mind. Come the last 30 meters of the century dash, Rosales started fading away and the three UST women – Luzon, Salcedo, and Loterte – pulled away and gave their school a gold-silver-bronze finish with 12.10, 12.35, and 12.43 seconds as their times respectively. Rosales finished fourth with a time of 12.53 seconds which was way slower than her qualifying UAAP record time. The amazing UST finish ended Rosales’ three-year reign in the women’s 100m dash.

Another major upset was evident in the women’s 100m hurdles as the top seed Michelle Loterte of UST crashed by the fifth of sixth hurdle, giving a clear way for the De La Salle University’s (DLSU) Judy Ann Rendora and the University of the Philippine’s (UP) Marianne Audrey Yorac to battle their way for gold. Both hurdlers finished with a time of 15.19 seconds apiece but with Rendora being given the gold because of the photo finish review. Katherine Costan of UST finished third with a time of 15.19 while her top seeded compatriot Loterte finished last with a time of 19.98 seconds.

Field Events

The High Jump event also had a highly contested field as the top three finishers’ results were all close to each other. Angelica Janda of Far Eastern University (FEU) jumped 1.65m to win the gold while Maureen Schrijvers of De La Salle University and Kristie Kaye Vinco of FEU both finished with a height of 1.60m. Schrijvers was awarded the silver medal as she committed less fouls than Vinco.

The women’s hammer throw was the only throwing event for the women for day one. UST finished with a massive 1-2-3-4 place haul. Cristelle Jane Ferrera led UST’s rally for the massive win with a throw of 35.76m to win the gold. Schoolmate Aira Teodosio came short of beating Ferrera with her throw of 35.16m which was still good for a silver medal finish. Riza Faith Sombilia and Jessah Mae Fernandez finished third and fourth with throws of 33.55m and 32.88m respectively.

  • previous record is 12.22 set in 2012 shared with Hanelyn Loquinto.

    all 3 recorded are deleted as 11.8 = 12.04et equivalent so now its just Jenny Rosales holding that record.

2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup

Chooks-to-Go President hopes to break PH Arena record come 3×3 World Cup

Published

on

Last October 27, 2017, Game Seven of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals that pitted 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 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 that was 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 team to win the championship.”

Ilocos United takes leave from PFL

Published

on

Another one bites the dust

After months of speculation, Ilocos United formally announced its 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 its 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 its PFL operations will fold for the time being, Ilocos will continue the grassroots programs it 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 aren’t a lot of 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.

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

Published

on

After falling just two games short to cop 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 animal.

Going up against the veteran-laden Marinerong Pilipino Skippers, the Zark’s Burgers-backed squad had 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 however served as a wake-up call. Adjusting on the fly, Perez and Marcelino rallied the Jawbreakers back — even having 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 while the 24-year-old Perez added 19 points, five assists, two steals, and a block.

With their first game in the bag, the two and the rest of the Jawbreakers now have this 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.”

Renzo Subido to bring Marinerong Pilipino experience to UST

Published

on

When Renzo Subido decided to skip out the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers’ UAAP Season 80 campaign, he had only one thing in mind: to improve on his craft. And he was able to do so under coach Koy Banal in the Marinerong Pilipino Skippers.

After the AMA Online Education Titans had a quick end to their campaign during the 2017 Foundation Cup, the 5-foot-9 floor general was immediately picked up by Marinerong Pilipino for the playoffs. Liking his style of play, he was again tapped for the 2018 Aspirants Cup.

And he showed a lot of growth from then, leading the Skippers to a 94-92 victory over fellow contenders Zark’s Jawbreakers. The 21-year-old tallied 20 points, three rebounds, and five assists while knocking down the crucial free throws to seal off the Lyceum-backed team.

“It was a good win for us. We’re happy that we won the game because it’s a good way to start the conference,” beamed Subido. “I’ve played against Lyceum in the past so I had familiarity with how they play.

“It was a good experience for us.”

Expectations are high for Marinerong Pilipino this conference as they are pegged as their blend of veterans and young guns are seen too overwhelming for the rest of the field. Still, Subido knows that it will be a tough climb as the other teams, especially the collegiate-based squads, have familiarity on their side.

“We’re taking it one game at a time but the goal is to win the championship,” he said. “But we know that it’s not going to be easy since we are going up against the top collegiate teams.

“So we’re just going to go all out every game.”

Besides winning the championship, Subido is on a personal mission. Being one of the seniors for the Growling Tigers next season, he hopes to learn to become a better leader for next season.

“I want to become a better leader. I know that everything I can learn this conference, I can bring to UST,” Subido expressed.

“For all I can see, coach Aldin [Ayo] is a guard-oriented coach. So I’m using all the experience I get here in Marinero, I’ll bring it to UST.”

For sure, Subido wants to make up for lost time.
