UAAP S77 Women’s Track and Field Day 4 Recap & Results

Published

on

[nextpage title = “Final Day”]

The original five-day schedule of the UAAP was cut short to four days due to Typhoon Ruby. The technical officials postponed the competition last Monday, December 8, for the safety of the athletes. Despite the events for the last two days being crammed in one day, the overall performance was far from being mediocre.

Being named the league’s Most Valuable Player is once again Jennyrose Rosales of the University of the East (UE) after bagging the 200m gold, 400m gold with a new UAAP record, 400m hurdles gold also with a new UAAP record, and 800m silver. She finished fourth in the women’s 100m dash finals but still set a new UAAP record in the heats with a time of 11.90 seconds – becoming the first woman in UAAP history to clock a sub-12 seconds 100m sprint.

Louielyn Pamatian of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) took this year’s Rookie of the Year award after taking the 1,500m gold, and the 400m and 800m double bronze.

The UST won this year’s overall women’s division championship with 17 medals. Out of all these medals, 10 were gold, one was silver, and six were bronze.

Track Events

The 5,000m run was the distance event being contested during the morning session of the fourth day of competition. UST’s Jila Dela Rosa, who won the 10,000m run during the second day, made herself the long distance running queen of the competition after winning the 5,000m with a time of 19:22.03. Achieving the 5,000m and 10,000m double is one of the elite feats a long distance runner could pull off in a track competition.

Far Eastern University’s (FEU) Mae Ann Gongob clocked five seconds slower than Dela Rosa and claimed the silver medal with a time of 19:27.59 seconds. Gongob’s other two teammates Catherine Bristol and Mary Grace Dela Torre won the bronze and finished fourth with times of 19:40.34 and 19:50.95 respectively. These top four runners were the only ones who clocked sub-20 minute runs.

The 400m hurdles heats came up next with defending champion Rosales competing in the event. She ranked first in the qualifying round after registering a time of 1:02.58. This time was over a second faster than FEU’s Marlyn Avila who ran 1:03.45 to rank second in the qualifying round. Avila’s schoolmate Rieveneth Jayed Penarubia ranked third in the qualifying round when she ran a time of 1:04.58. UST’s Michelle Loterte relaxed in the heats after clocking 1:05.30 to take fourth place.

The finals of the 400m hurdles kicked in around an hour later. As expected, Rosales burned through the track and set a new UAAP record of 1:00.15 – her third UAAP record this season. UST’s Loterte, who conserved her energy in the qualifying round, won silver and finished strong with a time of 1:02.21. FEU’s Avila almost threatened to take the silver medal from Loterte but settled for bronze after clocking 1:02.91 in the finals.

In the afternoon session, 400m and 800m medalist and rookie Pamatian of UST ran away from the pack and finished with a time of 4:50.18 in the 1500m run. Trisha Ramirez of FEU came in second after clocking 4:54.51 while schoolmate Gongob finished with 5:01.02.

The final event of the afternoon for the women was the 4x400m relay. Rosales ran UE’s first leg and gave a clear way for Neslee Angco to further extend their lead during the second leg. All that’s left to do was for Oraisa Tabangay and Bernadeth Tilus to maintain the lead made by their veteran teammates. UE won with a fast time of 3:52.40 which was a clear three seconds faster than UST.

Loterte, Pamatian, Aldee Faith Denuyo, and Eloiza Luzon of UST finished with a time of 3:55.56. UST was seven seconds faster than FEU’s quartet of Penarubia, Avila, Elisa Aguinaldo, and Jee-Ann Racoma who clocked 4:02.05.

Heptathlon

Overnight leader Marianne Audrey Yorac of the University of the Philippines (UP) slowly slipped into seventh come the second day. She ranked second after the long jump – the first event of the day. Horror struck as she fouled out in the javelin throw as this dropped her into sixth place.

UST’s Chairy Palermo took first place after a massive 5.53m record in the long jump. She solidified her first place position in the javelin throw after throwing 27.69 m. Come the 800m run, Palermo was well over 103 points away from second placer and schoolmate Sarah Dequinah. Palermo ran a semi-relaxed 2:37.76 800m and won gold with a total of 4,129 points.

Dequinah ran a 2:34.13 800m in the hopes of catching up with Palermo. Dequinah settled for the silver medal with a total of 4,069 points – still a clear 60 points away from Palermo.

Palermo and Dequinah were the only ones who broke the 4,000 point barrier in the competition. FEU’s Jinny Rose Omena grabbed the bronze with a total of 3,674 points.

Field Events

The last throwing event of the competition for the women’s division was the shot put. UE’s Diane De Jesus threw the shot put 11.65 m to grab the gold. De Jesus was over 0.17 m away from silver medalist Riza Faith Sombilla of UST who threw 11.48 m. For the bronze medal, Lei Ann Tan of FEU threw 11.19 m. Javelin throw champion and discus throw bronze medalist Evalyn Palabrica threw 10.6 9m – 0.40 m away from the bronze medal.

The women’s long jump was the last field event that was contested in the four-day competition. DLSU’s Angel Carino jumped 5.65 m to take the gold away. Her jump was 0.22 m farther than last year’s gold medal jump. She was also well over 0.11 m away from UST’s Denuyo who jumped 5.54 m to grab the silver medal. FEU’s Angelica Janda almost took the silver medal away from Denuyo but she was 0.03 m short. Janda jumped 5.51 m to take the bronze medal.

Composed Ceres-Negros expels Shan United in shootout victory

Published

on

Photo from the-AFC.com

2017 AFC ASEAN Zone Champions Ceres-Negros banked on their poise and composure from the spot as they knocked out Myanmar’s Shan United via a 4-3 penalty shootout (1-1 after extra time) triumph, Tuesday evening at the Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar.

The Negrenses punched their ticket to Brisbane, Australia after emerging the better spotkick takers. Four Busmen were on target, while two of their Shan Warriors counterparts fluffed their lines.

The two domestic champions were inseparable after 120 minutes, with the hosts holding their own against the Philippine champions. Ceres-Negros looked the more dominant of the two teams. However, they couldn’t make the advantage count where it mattered, as they failed to breach the sturdy Shan United defense inside the first two regulation halves.

The visitors were visibly more comfortable in the first half, but with the scores staying level at the break, the less-fancied Myanmar champions eventually found their footing in the encounter. While there were several half-chances from either side to open the scoring, both defenses remained defiant en route to unwanted extra time.

“It was a tough game. We weren’t ready to play 120 minutes because we only had four training sessions before the game but everytime we wear this jersey, we represent Ceres, we represent Bacolod, we represent the Philippines, so we have to give our best,” Ceres’ defender Carli de Murga elaborated to the Inquirer after the match. The Asian Football season has yet to start, and with both teams not too busy with pre-season preparations, rust and fatigue in a demanding affair were evident.

Come extra time, Ceres-Negros took the initiative when Stephan Schröck’s deflected effort went past the helpless Thiha Si Thu just three minutes into the first half.

Nonetheless, the hosts refused to go down without a fight, and their resilience was rewarded later in the opening half. Substitute Patrick Asare found the back of the net to restore parity in Yangon.

Another 15 minutes of goalless action took place in the second half as both teams looked more cautious, perhaps with the collective aim of avoiding a costly error or two. Among all the chances, Schröck’s in the 114th minute may have proved to be the closest to changing the scores, as his attempt shaved the post.

Shan United took to the spot first, where Asare made his penalty attempt count. Nay Lin Tun also made his, but not before teammate Chizoba smashed his attempt over Toni Doblas’ goal.

While the hosts squandered a shot, the visitors remained calm in front of a hostile Myanmar crowd. De Murga, Schröck and Mike Ott nailed their turns, with Marañon also not missing a vital kick from 12 yards.

It set up William Biassi Nyakwe, the man credited with the own goal when he deflected Schröck’s opener, with the chance to prolong his team’s campaign in the AFC Champions League. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t atone for his earlier mistake, as his attempt soared high and wide — much to the delight of the visiting team from Bacolod, the Philippines.

The reward for Ceres-Negros is a trip to Queensland, Australia, where they will seek to do one better than compatriots Global-Cebu. The 2016 Philippine champions also played against the Brisbane Roar, who dealt them a staggering 6-0 hammering this time last year. The match will be held at the Suncorp Stadium on January 23.

As for Shan United, a spot in the AFC Cup Group Stage awaits them and they may not have seen the last of Ceres-Negros just yet. If the Negrenses lose to either Brisbane Roar or Tianjin Quanjian, they will be reacquainted with the Burmese champions in Group F.

Abu Tratter plans to work his way to 2023 by continuing to do ‘the dirty work’

Published

on

Abu Tratter may have missed the jersey-giving ceremony that the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas held for the 23 for 2023 cadets last Monday but he made sure to help out when the current batch needed him the most.

After helping the Marinerong Pilipino Skippers win the Sinulog Cup in Cebu a week ago, the 6-foot-7 Filipino-American did not hesitate to heed Gilas’ call, as they were undermanned for their second session in preparation for the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

“I think it’s just an honor to put on this jersey, to be able to represent our country, to possibly represent our country in the future. It’s an honor,” shared the Laguna-native.

The 25-year old, who just celebrated his birthday last January 9, admitted that he was in awe of the talent inside the Meralco Gym. Like a fan, he wanted to take a few photo ops with the senior team’s Gabe Norwood and June Mar Fajardo.

“Actually, at first I was just shocked to see June Mar and Gabe, just to be able to be in the midst of them,” gushed the former DLSU Green Archer, who will suit-up for Marinerong Pilipino in the D-League. “I even asked them for a picture, and hopefully they’ll still give me one.

“It’s just humbling, definitely.”

However, the work has only began for Tratter. With five years to go until the 2023 FIBA World Cup, the two-time UAAP champion plans to continue to do what he does best — be the same scrapper that he is and hopefully catch the eye of Gilas’ brass.

“I think just doing the dirty work, of course. Giving whatever the team needs, rebound or any steals, any thing a dirty player would need to pick up on,” he said.

“That’s how it is, garbage into gold. Get anything, sweep up anything and try to put it back.”

Moreover, he will continue answering the call when Gilas needs him, as he himself is learning a lot from being surrounded by the country’s topflight cagers.

“Whenever I can. I want to be able to absorb all the information coming from here and hopefully apply it in the D-League and hopefully apply it on future practices, future games.”

Terrence Romeo invited to join Pilipinas 3×3 for World Cup

Published

on

Stronger than ever

Scoring sensation Terrence Romeo has been invited by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to join the Philippine team in the upcoming FIBA 3X3 World Cup, according to Philippine Star columnist Quinito Henson.

Romeo, who is currently out due to a right knee injury, has been in rehabilitation and is expected to miss the entire Philippine Cup campaign of the Globalport Batang Pier and the second window of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

“Baka sa second conference na ko makabalik kasi talagang gusto ko malakas ako pagbalik ko,” the 25-year-old shared during Chooks-to-Go Live last January 2.

SBP Executive Director Sonny Barrios personally met with the 6-foot guard, inviting him to be part of the Philippine team.

Romeo has plenty of 3×3 basketball experience under his belt.

Back in 2014, Romeo was part of the Manila West 3×3 team during the Manila Masters. He was adjudged as the tournament Most Valuable Player.

The 2018 3X3 World Cup will take place from June 8-12 at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Red Spikers extinguish Blazers for second win

Published

on

Shaking off a forgettable outing against the Perpetual Help Altas last January 11, the San Beda College Red Spikers vented their ire on defending champions College of Saint Benilde Blazers in four sets, 25-15, 25-16, 23-25, 26-24, and claimed their second win of the season, Friday afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

“Sabi ng coaches kalimutan na yung talo,” shared captain Lorenze Santos of what transpired after that match.

So, in this game, the San Beda team poured on what they worked hard for to regain momentum. “Binuhos po namin lahat ng ginawa namin sa training [ngayon].”

After tight starts in all the first two sets, the Mendiola-based side pulled away to register the seemingly insurmountable 2-0 lead.

Nonetheless, summoning the heart of a champion and led by seniors Isaah Arda and Jethro Orian, the reigning champions pulled off gritty runs to snag the third set and making a tussle of the fourth.

Ultimately, Adrian Viray virtually ended the match with a vicious serve, which the Blazers failed to convert.

The prolific outside hitter finished with 17 points, 11 coming from attacks and five off blocks. Former skipper Mark Encino also registered 17 markers.

The Red Spikers (2-1) will face the Mapua University, also at 2-1, on Friday, January 19.

Orian was such a presence at the net, ending up with 20 points for the Taft-based squad.
