2019 NCR Region Meet – Big Throw for Big Ainah
March 4, 2019
With many meets to cover, we now get around reporting the NCR Meet, which was the prelude to the Palaro.
With the K2-12 system, seeing NCR coaches soaking up and assimilating athletes like a sponge.
You would think NCR will emerge as the Palaro overall champion in both Secondary Boys and Girls.
Guess Again!. Unlike some of the amazing feats at the Western Visayas Regional meet, the Performances here were not really highly competitive.
With Manila coaches going on a shopping spree for Franchise athletes at the Iloilo Western Visayas meet.
I guess the NCR coaches have not milked the provinces enough.
But with that rant aside, the star performer was the 5’8 Ainah Masangkay of Tapat, whose feats are as follows.
Meanwhile, Palaro Champion Veruel Verdadero who transferred from Dasmarinas City, showed he has his work cut out for him at the Palaro in 6 weeks.
Veruel is the reigning Palaro Champion in the 100 and 200. Barely held onto a win in the 100m in 11.1 secs (way off his 10.6 PB), he won the 200 (22.6) and 400 (50.0) also.
Another athlete who transferred to JRU was Palaro 400 Hurdles record holder Riza Jane ‘Turso’ Valiente from Bohol, who won the 100m (12.3), 200m (25.6), and 400 Hurdles (1:04), beating reigning champion Ellah Therese Sirilan in the process.
