UAAP Season 81 volleyball: DLS-Z brings girls title back to Alabang

De La Salle-Zobel brought the crown back to Alabang after completing a Finals series sweep of dethroned National University, 25-21, 25-23, 15-25, 16-25, 15-8, Sunday to rule the UAAP Season 81 girls volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Just like in the series opener, the Junior Lady Spikers squandered a two-set lead but made up for their miscues with a strong start in the fifth frame to knock the Bullpups off the throne after a four-year reign. Season Most Valuable Player Angel Canino fired 19 attacks and had two kill blocks in her 21-point outing while Alleiah Malaluan added 15 points for the Alabang-based squad’s 10th title overall and first since Season 75 during the senior year of Dawn Macandili and Kim Kianna Dy.    “Lahat ng hirap ng mga bata yun talaga ang gusto kong bigyan ng appreciation. Kung hindi naman dahil sa kanila, yung tulong nila, yung sakripisyo nila hindi namin magagawa ito,” said sophomore DLS-Z coach Tina Salak, who herself was a two-time UAAP champion as setter for Far Eastern University in the mid-90s.  The Junior Lady Spikers opened the match on the right foot, taking the first two sets but Bullpups behind the trio of Faith Nisperos, Jimy Jamili and Erin Pangilinan fought back to force another five-set affair. DLS-Z zapped the energy away from NU with a devastating 8-0 barrage that saw Malauan land three of her four aces in the that telling opening run. The Bullpups were able to cut their deficit to 9-6 only to see the Junior Lady Spikers take the crown off their heads.   “Super happy (sa championship). Super happy rin po ako sa mga seniors kasi para sa kanila po yun (title), for the seniors po yun,” said second year hitter Canino. “Hindi ko rin po ini-expect na ganito ang lalaruin namin and super happy ako sa kilabasan na laro namin.” Finals MVP and outgoing captain Justine Nazareno had nine markers while Theo Bonafe got seven for DLS-Z, which will part ways with other graduating players Jewel Encarnacion, Giovannah Macavinta, Alyssa Cruz and Bea Bonafe. Nisperos finished with 21 points while Jamili and Pangilinan had 16 and 14 markers, respectively, for NU. Earlier, Canino received the season MVP award to go with her Best 1st Outside Spiker plum in a short ceremony. Malaluan was the Best 2nd Outside Spiker and Best Server winner. Other awardees were Adamson's May Ann Nique (Best 1st Middle Blocker) and Ayesha Juegos (Best Opposite Spiker), FEU-Diliman's Alexis Miner (Best 2nd Middle Blocker), NU's Camille Lamina (Best Setter) and University of Santo Tomas' Det Pepito (Best Libero). Meanwhile, the Bullpups inched closer to claiming the boys crown after taking down Far Eastern University-Diliman, 25-19, 22-25, 25-8, 25-13, in their best-of-three series opener. Game 2 of the Finals is on Wednesday.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Throwback Thursday: Fra Lippo Lippi’s Per Sorensen performs with MPO, Dec. 6, Resorts World Manila

Back in the late 1980s, as a newbie associate editor joining managing editor James Saspa at Jingle music magazine, I remember a nerd-looking guy named Edilberto Sulat Jr. applying as a contributing writer in the record reviews section. He was then still in college at the University of Santo Tomas, but demonstrated confidence and style in his writing, which he bylined with a stylized Bert Jnr. The fun and fulfillment of writing in Jingle was that individuality and total freedom of expression were encouraged, such that Bert Jnr. could get away with his British colloquialisms and slang. At times I couldn't dig his idiosyncrasies. But now, looking back, I realized that, somehow, h...Keep on reading: Throwback Thursday: Fra Lippo Lippi’s Per Sorensen performs with MPO, Dec. 6, Resorts World Manila.....»»

After four years, the Far Eastern University is back in the UAAP Women's Basketball Finals after overcoming the hungry University of Santo Tomas, 68-66, in a thrilling step-ladder semifinals match Wednesday afternoon at the Araneta Coliseum. It was nip and tuck in the first three quarters but a Clare Castro triple with 1:50 left brought FEU ahead by five points, 47-42. It was the shot that turned the momentum around as the Tamaraws stretched the lead to 10 points. However, UST did not let go without a fight. Courtesy of Season MVP Grace Irebu's three triples and Sai Larosa's fast breaks, the Tigresses chopped the lead down to one, 59-60, with four minutes left. It was a dogfight since then but in the end, FEU held on to their 68-66 lead as they the Tigresses' Jastine Capilit failed to convert a game-tying shot in the game's final play. As the final buzzer sounded, the Tamaraws all jumped in glee as the Tigresses collapsed in despair. UST settled with another third place finish while FEU advanced to the Finals. Castro carried the Lady Tamaraws with 32 points and 15 rebounds. She was heavily credited by FEU head coach Bert Flores for their fantastic run this Season 81. "Hindi namin ine-expect na umabot kami ng Finals. Yung team kasi namin, anim ang nawala," shared Flores, "Pag wala si Clare, ang liliit namin, para kaming minions. Parang may rebounder kami, may [Junemar] Fajardo. Ang laking bagay ni Clare, pasalamat ako sa kanya." He also mentioned how Castro's presence empowers other players to perform as well. Fatima Quiapo produced 12 points and six rebounds while Nina Antiola scored nine points, four rebounds, and four assists. UST's Irebu scored 28 points, 13 rebounds, and four assists. Tantoy Ferrer added 11 points and four rebounds while Sai Larosa had 10 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. Castro credited her experience guarding Irebu in the semifinals as something she can use to sharpen her skills as she faces National University's Rhena Itesi and Jack Animam in the Finals. "Siyempre si Irebu yung katapat ko na pwera pa sa NU eh, so yung mga post-ups ko kanina, parang ano rin siya na preparation na rin siya sa NU kasi kung sa ibang team seal ako ng seal, pasa lang sa akin. Eh yun malalaki so kailangan ko gawan ng paraan para makakuha ako ng bola," Castro shared. The Lady Tamaraws will face the dynastic Lady Bulldogs for the best-of-three Finals series starting on December 1, Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

UAAP Season 81 fencing: UE claims men s 7-peat, Ateneo rules women s side

University of the East retained the men's championship, while teenage sensation Maxine Esteban powered Ateneo de Manila University in winning its first women's crown in 12 years as the UAAP Season 81 fencing tournament came to a close Sunday at the Victoria Sports Tower in Quezon City. The foil team of CJ Concepcion, JC Concepcion, Sammuel Tranquilan and Xavier Arabaca won the gold on the final day of the competition that served as an icing for the Red Warriors to extend their reign to a seventh straight year. The Recto-based fencers already annexed the crown Saturday, as the saber team of CJ Concepcion, JC Concepcion, Tranquilan and Jinro Villanueva emerged triumphant. UE, which also captured three silver medals, also clinched a league-best 13th title overall. The Warriors earlier swept the individual events, as CJ Concepcion nabbed the saber gold while Tranquilan topped the epee and foil events.        For the second straight season, Tranquilan was named the MVP.   Esteban's gold medal triumphs in the individual foil and saber events, as well as the Lady Eagles' victory in the team foil brought the Katipunan-based fencers back on top of the women's division. Esteban captured the Rookie-MVP award as Ateneo bagged its second title overall, and the first since 2006 behind sisters Faye and Veeg Garcia.  It also ended UE's amazing 11-year run in the throne. University of Santo Tomas' lady fencers finished second place with two golds courtesy of Marielle Peralta in the individual epee, and the team foil of Peralta, Andrea Bernal, Pauline Bernarte and Mira Dorimon.  The Tigresses also won a silver and two bronzes. The Lady Warriors finally won a gold in the fourth day, as Carla Arreza, Nicole Cortey, Joy Javinar and Marry Jae Lonzaga topped the team saber category.  UE also went home with three silvers and three bronzes to settle for third. De La Salle's gold medal quest in men’s team epee Saturday was enough to claim second place to go with a silver and three bronzes, while Ateneo's one-silver, five-bronze haul sealed third spot. Green Fencer Darryl Lumahan was named the top rookie. In the juniors division, UE achieved another golden double with Samantha Catantan and Prince John Francis Felipe claiming the season MVP awards in the girls and boys division once more. The Junior Warriors achieved a eight-peat in the girls division, while the boys streaked to their ninth straight championship. UST's Patricia Daradar was the girls Rookie of the Year winner......»»
