2012 Weekly Relays Week 7-8

2012 Weekly Relays Week 4-6

Report(/September 1) Weekly Relays Week 7

Announcement for General Public: Please Note due to the Pasig Oval is being used for the Milo Little Olympics on September 8th. That there will be no Weekly Relays for that week. The Weekly Relays will resume on September 15.


Corrections and Amendments

Due to several timekeeping/encoding issues. The week 6 report of the weekly relay is still not yet finalized. The four errors I had isolated had been fixed. However, there are additional errors reported to the general public I was not able to pick up. I have attached a copy of the Week 6 weekly relays however it should be noted that the encoder and PATAFA are still fixing these results and they are not yet fully finalized. Therefore I cannot add them to the combined week 1-5 super result list. Week 7 results have been attached here.

The Mystery of the Men’s 5K was that due to a lap judging error, it was only 4600m.

In regards to the flimsy paper BIB Numbers. The question has been reassigned to PATAFA.

As the report and results for Week 6 were delayed due to errors. Voting on Week 6 for the Athlete of the week is still ongoing and will be closed on Friday. 


Lasangue leads the High Jump


Manuel Lasangue has already surpassed the SEA Games bronze standard in the High Jump when he leaped 2.10m (last sea games 2.07m). And then the following month 2.09m in Hong Kong. Continued an impressive season by easily taking out the Men’s High Jump. Lasangue who was scheduled to go to Singapore Nationals was unable to attend.

However, the multi-talented jumper 18-year-old Janry Ubas (FEU) was pulled through to a personal best of 1.95m #5 on the all-time list.

NCAA Champion Faderago (UPHR) was third with 1.90m. Harry Diones (JRU) 1.85m fourth (Diones also won the Triple Jump in 14.10 Seasons Best(PB 14.49). Patrick Unso (DLSU) was fifth in 1.85m.


All about the Hurdles

Unso also took the first heat of the Mens 110 Hurdles in 14.8. The second heat was won by his brother 2011 UAAP Champion Jose in 15.1. However Emmanuel Delos Angeles?? (using Gerald Morales’s bib number) also registered at the same time. The three athletes will go head to head at the UAAP in November.

Michelle Loterte
Michelle Loterte (3rd from right in yellow) is on her way to winning the 2012 UAAP title.

National Junior Champion, Michelle Loterte (UST) had a convincing win in the Womens 100m Hurdles (15.5). The 19-year-old who clocked a personal best of 15.18et at the National Games is well on her way to defending her UAAP Title.  Mildrid Salut (FEU) was well beaten with (16.2), Salut clocked a personal best of 15.59et to get Silver at the UAAP last year.  Leah Casilihan(DLSU) who is being mentored by National Record Holder Sheena Atilano was third fastest (17.3), Casilihan was the Junior Silver Medalist at the PNG in 2011. Loterte also won the Triple Jump.

Upcoming Jaime Mejia, 15 of (UP High School) won the High School Boys 110m Hurdles in 15.7. He beat Nestly Tercero (St. Francis/SF) who was a close second with 15.8.  14-year-old Rocena Chua (St. Michaels) fastest High School Girl 16.9.



Catherine Bristol of St Francis of Assisi (SF) with the Collegiate athletes out won the girl’s 3k in 11:27.3. Bristol also had a busy day winning the 1500m in 5:16.9.??

After his win last week in the 800m. Roldan Verano (JRU) was back to win the 1500m in 4.03.8. Verano’s time was a little faster than the 4.03.97 he registered earlier in the year when he won Silver behind Mervin Guarte (SSC). However, it was still behind his personal best of 4.01.3 at NCAA the year before.



2012 Palaro 100,200, High Jump Champion Maureen Emily Schrivjers will be entering her first year at the UAAP with DLSU

Palaro 100 and 200m Champion Maureen Schrivjers (DLSU) who is preparing for her first year in the UAAP clocked 1:01.0 to win heat 1 of the womens 400m. National Junior Champion Neslee Angco (UE) won her heat in 1:01.6 (her best time is 59.4 where she also won the Palaro).

Former national training pool athlete Abraham Alzona (UE) held off actor Jericho Ejercito (DLSU) 50.6 to 50.8 in the Mens 400m.





Week 8: Salano and Poliquit run 5k PBs

Again a thank you to Coach Roselyn Hamero (PATAFA) for supplying these results. Apologies for the delays but PATAFA has been very busy with other matters right now.

Might I add first that these results had some errors which have been more thoroughly checked by the PATAFA encoder so that is also much appreciated?

Week 7’s Athlete of the Week again was a joint decision with two junior members of the Hypersports 4×100 Relay sharing the honors with 5 votes each. Maureen Emily Schrivjers the Palaro 100/200m/High Jump Champion and Michelle Loterte the UAAP and National Junior 100m Hurdles Champion.

Report: Salano and Poliquit show good Form for UAAP

Richard Salano (UE) again proved he is the man to beat at the UAAP registering for the fourth time in a row over 5km another personal best of 15:30.4. Salano who has smashed his personal best which was 15:42 at the beginning of the year is looking likely to take the Mens 5K title at the UAAP. As the country’s fourth fastest man over 5k this year he is behind three great veterans Herrera, Buenavista, and Sermona.

Not to be outdone was Rafael Poliquit (FEU) who took a considerable chunk off his last performance at Weekly Relays in July of 15:47.3 lowering that to 15:31.0. Poliquit who hails from Davao City improved his personal best last year of 15:35.4. It will be an interesting 5k with defending champion Ulboc last performance being 15:37.79 at the PNG where he beat Salano and Poliquit.

Third place went to Roldan Verano (JRU) in 15:45.5 who had been running some very good performances recently in middle distances.

Meanwhile, Week 6 joint-top athlete Carmen Dalyn (FEU) gained another win in the Womens 3k.

In regards to the flimsy paper BIB Numbers. The question has been reassigned to PATAFA.

All Four Members of the Hypersports Womens 4x100m Junior Womens National Champions were in action in week 6. From Left to Right. Loterte, Rosales, Schrijvers and Angco.
Double National JR Champion Romnick Nor (Orange) shows good sportsmanship helping injured Pearnel Lobos (Blue) off the track at the National Games.


JRU Pearnel Lobos was the top man in the 200m with the day’s best time of 22.3 (pb 22.36 UAAP), 18-year old Lobos was one of the favorites in the Boys 100m last PNG until pulling his hamstring in the final. Unknown Gabriel Santos? of Letran won heat 1 in 22.4. Palaro 2011 400m Champion Anfrenee Lopena (transferred from the University of San Recoletos Cebu to College of Saint Benilde, originally from Bohol) made a return to the track after more than a year of absence to win heat 8 in 22.7. UAAP 100m Bronze medalist Jasper (DLSU) Tanhueco won the fourth heat in 22.8.


Some very quick times in the girl’s 200m with St. Francis of Assisi 16-year old Marilyn Avila (96) winning heat 1 in 26.2, her team-mate another speed teenager Christine Del Rio (96) topped the 5th heat in 26.5. The quickest time in the boy’s 200m was 23.0, the name is not listed if anyone knows please post in the comments. The girls posted faster times than the winner of the womens Mildrid Salut (FEU) 26.6.

Nothing special in the men’s 800m this week with the top three at the nationals Guarte, Maulas, Billones, and the inform Ulboc deciding to sit this one out. The times in the event for some reason were a bit slow. The winner was JRU Roldan Verano the 21-year old has a personal best of 1.53.6 (2011 NCAA), however, could only manage 1.57.5 for the win in the first heat, Rafael Poliquit (FEU) 1.58.9 probably a personal best time finished behind him. Michael ‘Topix’ Villamor (UPHR) who was fourth at the nationals timed 2.03.7, which was well behind his personal best of 1.55.04 (PNG 2011 Bacolod) and his season best of 1.56.60 (2nd 2012 NCAA).

In the Mens Pole Vault, it seemed everyone wanted to jump 3.80m. 37-year-old Antonio Chee and 48-year-old National Champion Emerson Obiena emerged joint winners. Then on countback 2010 UAAP Champion Zek Valera, National Junior Record Holder EJ Obiena (returning from broken bone injury), and upcoming Robert Miguel Nasis (UP) all registered 3.80m also.

Luckily for the men, Riezel Buenaventura wasnt jumping around her best as it would have meant the indignity of being upstaged by women. Buenaventura registered 3.60m. But the real excitement came from the second placer Natasha (Nash) Marie Nalus who broke the Philippine Junior Record with a leap of 2.95m read more here. Former record holder and training partner Katrina Baron had a slight improvement with a 2.40m leap.

Also on the improvement trail was FEU Evalyn Palabrica who is looking like the favorite heading toward the UAAP Javelin. The 18-year-old who was only throwing 36m at the Palaro in June improved her best again from 39.61 to 41.55. This time increasing the margin of victory over defending UAAP Champion and team-mate Jennifer Penepona 38.55m (pb 41.66m last uaap). The improvement has catapulted Palabrica from 8th to 3rd on the all-time junior list. Only Record Holder and former SEA Games Champion Rosie Villarito (44.54) and Palaro Record Holder Stephanie Cimatu (42.34) are ahead now.

Week 5 Full Results Here


Daniel Noval chases after his SEA Games Dreams.

Daniel Noval provided a ‘perfect example’ of sprinting on Saturday Afternoon.

Surprisingly the fastest time of the day went to undercard Heptathlete Mildrid Salut of FEU who won the first heat with a time of 12.7s. The 23-year-old who hails from Montalban, Rizal ran her personal best of 12.68et at the UAAP in the heats but failed to place in the finals. Salut also capped off a good day by winning the Womens Long Jump in 5.13m.

Both Week 7 ‘Athletes of the week’ featured in the second heat with Maureen Emily Schrivjers winning in 12.8s over Michelle Loterte’s 13.0s.

NCAA Champion Daniel Noval (CSB) was the fastest man on the track winning the second heat of 100m in 10.8s. Daniel who hails from Cebu came .02 seconds off the Junior Record (10.82) of his mentor National Record Holder Ralph Waldy Soguilon at the last NCAA. The last chance perhaps for that feat will be at the Thailand Nationals Nov 2-5. Meanwhile, his team-mate and fellow Cebuano Week 6s Joint-top athlete Anfernee ‘Pene’ Lopena (CSB) won the first heat in 11.0 equalling the effort he had made the previous week.

JRU won the Mens 4×400 relay in 3:22.0



High schooler Eric Dela Cruz had a very impressive 37.06m in the Boys Discus. Riza Sombilla (UP) though slightly off her best throw won the womens shotput easily in 10.37m.

Joeann Bermudo (FEU) had a win on countback over Schrivjers (DLSU) with both registering 1.55m, with the absence of National Junior Record Holder (1.66m) Aprilen Laudencia of (FEU). It will be an exciting lineup with the three favorites going head-to-head at the UAAP in December.
