2014 Weekly Relays Finals
Weekly Relays Final Team Pts: FEU sweep 3/6 team titles (break down attached)
As several members of the athletic community are questioning the allocation of points. The PATAFA encoder Ms. Tynne Artiaga has now kindly provided us with a breakdown of the points. Upon examination, I think this is a good justification of her findings, and meticulous analysis of the points break down. I would like to commend Ms. Artiaga for her effort as we are dealing with data from around 3000 athletes, which requires a lot of revision and is a very time-consuming affair.
We have to appreciate that Ms. Artiaga has done the best job possible with the data provided. Now I was asked about the issue of BIB swapping. As Ms. Artiaga is not at the weekly relays, she can only work with the presented data. Obviously, if there is a thrower with a speedy sprint time, such as a sprinter with a massive throw, then and can look this into. That is where feedback from the athletic community is appreciated.
Tyne has also made several revisions to the results as she has been very open to the athletic community’s feedback in making the necessary fixes.
Therefore we are giving the athletic community until Thursday the 13th of November to make any queries or bring up any issues regarding the scoring. You should develop specific examples to present to the encoder regarding any points adjustments or suspected BIB Swapping.
After Thursday also alterations are hereby closed, and the adjusted Final Scores will be the awarded trophies.
A clear show of dominance saw FEU sweep three of the six divisional titles in the 2014 Weekly Relay Serie.
Coach Roselyn’s girls were assisted by former SEA Games Decathlon bronze medalist Obet Fresnido, clearly dominating the junior womens division with more than 200 points ahead of Bulacan State University’s ex-national sprinter Honey Joy Ortaliz coached. FEU also took the Womens title over 15 time SEA Games Gold medalist Elma Muros UE Girls.
Meanwhile, Coach Dario, with his three sidekicks Arnold Villarube, Joebert ‘Grover’ Delicano, two former SEA Games medalists, and Joel Sta. Mina, a former UAAP Champion, led the Mens Team.
The Junior Men’s team, the duo of former National sprint champion Paul Coloma and Leyte Academy Coach Trece, took the Junior Mens title over JRU.
The rising Muntinlupa Emeralds were just over 100 points ahead of the Dasmarinas Boys in the Youth Divison. However, in the youth girls division, Dasmarinas was very dominant ahead of Kalayaan Nat’l HS.
Trophies will be awarded during the Finals on November 15-16.
Notes on 2014 Weekly Relay Finals Guidelines (rev 1)
After a Discussion with Tournament Manager Renato Unso and PATAFA Auditor Jeanette Obiena, and made the final decisions on the Weekly Relays.
- The Schedule will be as follows from here on
- November 9, Schedule C
- November 15/16, Weekly Relay Finals
- In the following weeks, there will be no weekly relays staged for the given reasons.
- October 26, (October 24-26 Milo Little Olympics Finals, Marikina) (Youth) and (October 27-30 University Games of the Philippines, Iloilo) (Senior and Junior) will limit participation, making it not possible to have a round of 16.
- November 2 (November 1 and 2 is all souls day, and it’s expected meager attendance) Manny Martinez, venue manager, advised oval unavailable for these days.
- The Final will have the following.
- No 60m Dash
- Top 8 qualifiers for each age category 100m, 200m, 400m, 110 Hurdles, 400 Hurdles, Classical, 4×100 and 4×400 Relays
- Top 12 qualifiers for all field events
- Top 16 qualifiers for 800m and above
- Athletes will be seeded in finals by their actual age athletes regardless of their age category, during the competition.
- Athletes born in 1994 or before will participate in the Open Age Category for finals.
- Athletes born in 1995, 1996, and 1997 will compete in the Junior Age Category for finals.
- Athletes born in 1998 and after will compete in the Youth Age Category for finals.
- National Athletes can join events 800m and above and field events. However, if they have not qualified in earlier rounds, they will not award medals.
- The Suggestion to hold a Decathlon during the finals was turned down, as according to IAAF Rules, 4 hours is not sufficient to stage a Decathlon and would invalidate the results.
- In Long Jump, Triple Jump, the Top 8 will be allowed 3 additional jumps.
Regarding the Weekly Relay Finals Amendments
Held on November 9, as attached. It synchronizes better with the calendar. Any excess funds covering other costs (equipment needed) or put towards tune-up meets starting next January to help athletes prepare for the national open (March tentative suggested).
- 5 October (Schedule A)
- 12 October (Schedule B)
- 19 October (Schedule C)
- 20 October A
- 26 October B
- 2 November C
- 9 Proposed Finals
Another set of A-B-C (9, 16, and 23) would mean finals on 30, which would not be feasible as it conflicts with the ASEAN Schools and is too close to the UAAP and Milo Marathon.

Nov 15, 2015
Three dips under 49 seconds in the 400m Final

Blowing off a decent field, including NCAA Bronze Medalist Rodquem Maullon 10.8, National 200m Silver Medalist Jose Unso 11.0, and National Bronze Medalist Noli Torres 11.1.

UST 1-2-3 in Junior Womens 100m
