70 Years of PRISAA
“PRISAA: Elevating collegiate sports, empowering athletes, and celebrating the spirit of healthy competition. Join us for unforgettable athletic experiences!”
The PRISAA, along with the SCUAA, is a true nationwide collegiate league in the Philippines, as they both have schools represented in every region. And are not just based around a handful of schools in Manila, which is what the UAAP and NCAA do. PRISAA has hundred of schools as its members.
The Private School Sports Association was founded on February 17, 1953, by Dr. Manuel Carreon, Director of the Bureau of Public Schools. The First PRISAA was held March 8-10 at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila. The first three editions were held at Rizal Memorial. Then from 1956-1971, it was held in different venues around the country. The event was suspended for 20 years from 1973 to 1991 when Public and Private schools were integrated into joint collegiate events. In 1991 the event was revived as the PRISAA brand.
In 2004 it was decided that teams would now be represented by regions; before this, individual schools had participated in the national PRISAA.

2014 PRISAA Athletics
2014 PRISAA Results April 6-11
Please note these performances are unofficial and not recognized as sanctioned by the PATAFA. Also are not eligible for official rankings and Records. Hence uncertified timekeeping should not be considered for the selection of the national team/training pool. Most noteworthy, there are currently no official established records for this meeting.
The stand-out performance of the meet so far was 5.71m by Jaycel Casablanca. Yet the 20-year-old Casabuenca from Capiz who gave birth last year was a former Hurdler. Hence after opening with 5.41m at the WV, PRISAA improved again to 5.71m, which is the season-leading performance for 2014.
Meanwhile, in the high school Girls, Kimberly Zulueta of DLSU Bacolod ran the 2nd= fastest time for High school girls this year, which will put her in interesting contention at Palaro with Diesto of Bacolod (12.4) and Karen Janario (12.5) of Leyte.
Also, it was a very impressive season-leading win for Johan Caido of the University of Baguio. Yet, despite an injury earlier this year, Caido defended his title. Hence he narrowly held off National Junior Champion Ryan Bigyan of Lyceum of Batangas in a time of 48.6 seconds. At the same time, the two 20-year-olds will both be in action in a very competitive men’s 400m at the Philippine National Games May 17-22.

Ryan ‘The Duck’ Bigyan and break the PRISAA 4×400 Record (Video)
While Ryan ‘The Duck’ Bigyan (Lyceum Batangas), straight after his win in the Men’s 200m (21.8 seconds), helped his team Calabarzon to set a new PRISAA Record in the 4×400. Also, 20-year-old Bigyan, known as ‘The Duck’, is the National Junior Champion and co-Junior Record Holder in the 400m dash.
Hence the Calabarzon team, who set another record, was composed of Ryan Bigyan, Jeffrey Buhay, Jay Roland Pactor, and Marco Vilog from the Lyceum of the Philippines University in Batangas.
While with a sounding 3:19.99 (minutes), the Calabarzon team rugged all their opponents and beat another Calabarzon team’s 3:23.4 (minutes) record made in 1993. Hence they grabbed gold Wednesday at the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex.
*Previously reported there were no PRISAA Records, but now it has been brought to my attention that there are. I would appreciate a copy sent to [email protected]
2013 PRISAA Report Athletics
Minimal Participation and a Wasted Opportunity for NCR Schools
The National PRISAA Athletics kicked off in Lingayen two days ago. Although several schools are PRISAA members, participation from existing members is now very minimal, which means the depth of talent at this meet is rather limited.
Siliman school has boycotted the PRISAA as the University Association allegedly owes millions of pesos in reimbursements to the University dating back and before the 2009 Games, which were held in Dumaguete bankrolled by the school.
Meanwhile, the NCR schools have boycotted the PRISAA due to what they see as an unfair election system, with the incumbent PRISAA President being in charge for well over a decade. This, however for the NCR Athletes is not a good move as the PRISAA would have served as one of the only meets to help build up for the National Games with no all-comers meets available to date.
Few Ground Breaking Performances
The main standout so far has been Joan Caido of Baguio, the 18-year-old national junior champion who improved his best time to 48.8. Caido will square off at the PNG against UAAP silver medalist Gab Soriano (UP) (49.45) and 2011 Palaro Champion CSB Anfernee Lopena (49.8) at the PNG to try and defend his title.
Most Winning athletes have either maintained or had declining performances. This could be partly due to the lack of competition from other schools in this meeting. The Central Visayas Team is leading the competition in points.
“I am happy I was able to win despite strong wind,” said the 20-year old Baluran, a fourth year student at University of Cebu where she is taking up Education. “Despite leg and feet ache, I still won.”

Here are some select results from the first two days. I am only citing performances that are good enough to be ranked in 2013.
