Lazaro, Gumabao to star in a new team

A week after Michele Gumabao left Pocari Sweat, the former De La Salle star is set to banner a team that is expected to break the barrier between two of local volleyball’s most heated rivalry. Gumabao will team up with former Ateneo de Manila Lady Eagle star libero Denden Lazaro as the main stars of new team United VC that will see action in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference. Though sponsorship of the squad is yet to be ironed out, team manager Joshua Ylaya said that the team will definitely play in the tournament.        Gumabao left the V-League two-time champion Lady Warriors after some issues with the management last week while Lazaro last played for BaliPure in the same league.  For the longest time Gumabao and Lazaro has been on rivals starting from their UAAP days. Gumabao won three straight UAAP titles from Season 73 to 75 while Lazaro got two UAAP crowns from Season 76 to 77. The two faced each other in two UAAP Finals series with Gumabao winning both.   “The main reason why we called the team ‘united’ is because we wanted to show that we can play together despite our differences in the past,” said Ylaya, who represented the team in the league’s team owners’ meeting Tuesday. “At the end of the day, it’s just one sport and we can play competitively together.” Angeli Tabaquero, an Adamson co-assistant coach of Gumabao, former DLSU player Wensh Tiu and another ex-Pocari Sweat volleybelle Erika Alkuino are all expected to join the squad while there are reports that Mae Tajima and setter Jem Ferrer will also suit up for the team.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

Libero Jen Reyes set to join former NU teammates at Foton

While University of Sto. Tomas had its mini reunion with Petron, former and current National University players are setting their own with the Foton Tornadoes. Seasoned libero Jen Reyes bolted out of the Tri-Activ Spikers to join her former Lady Bulldogs teammates Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Jaja Santiago and Ivy Perez at Foton. The two-time Philippine Superliga Grand Prix champion Tornadoes lost most of their core players including their pair of defensive specialists Bia General and Kara Acevedo after their contracts expired. The Santiago sisters, Perez, EJ Laure and Maika Ortiz are the only holdovers of the team. Jaja Santiago and Laure of UST are unavailable for the Invitational Conference that will open next month because of their commitments with their respective schools.    And the acquisition of Reyes is the start of the team’s rebuilding process. The multi-awarded libero played for Petron for three seasons after transferring from Cignal, helping the Tri-Activ Spikers capture the 2014 Grand Prix and 2015 All-Filipino Conference – a historic 13-0 tournament sweep – crowns.  'Pinakamahirap na desisyon ay magpaalam sa Petron family ko. I spent the last three years of my career sa Petron. We won together, we lost together, para na kaming pamilya,” said Reyes. “But now it’s time for me to face a new challenge. Looking forward ako sa bagong chapter ng buhay ko ngayon.” Reyes has an impressive resume making her a prized defensive gem for any team. The libero has played in numerous international tournaments including consecutive appearances in the AVC Asian Women's Club Championship in 2015 with Petron and in 2016 as a local import for Foton. She also played in the 2016 FIVB Women's Club World Championship.  Aside from General and Acevedo, the Tornadoes also lost Cherry Rondina, setter Rhea Dimaculangan, spikers Patty Orendain and Carol Cerveza and middle blocker Angeli Araneta. Rondina and Dimaculangan transferred to Foton’s Grand Prix archrival Petron.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Thomas stretches lead to 7 at the Sony Open

DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer br /> HONOLULU (AP) — Justin Thomas made a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole Saturday for a 5-under 65 to tie the 54-hole score record on the PGA Tour and build a seven-shot lead going into the final round of the Sony Open. No one has ever lost a PGA Tour event with a seven-shot lead, and Thomas has given no indication that will change. His goal was to not drop any shots on another calm day at Waialae, and he wound up stretching his lead as he goes for a sweep of Hawaii. That last birdie putt put Thomas at 22-under 188, tying the mark Steve Stricker set at the 2010 John Deere Classic. Thomas got into the record book with an eagle on his final hole in each of the previous two rounds at Waialae — a 59 on Thursday for the eighth sub-60 round in tour history, and the 36-hole scoring record Friday. He had another chance on the par-5 18th until his second shot clipped a palm frond and came up well short. He pitched to just inside 15 feet below the cup, and poured in the putt. Zach Johnson shot a 65 to keep pace, though he remained seven shots behind. Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose (66) and Gary Woodland (68) were eight shots behind, though the 23-year-old Thomas has turned this into a one-man show with one round remaining as he tries to join Ernie Els in 2003 as the only players to win both Hawaii events on the PGA Tour. The course remained so vulnerable that Kevin Kisner nearly produced the second 59 of the week. Kisner made a 25-foot birdie putt on the eighth hole to reach 9 under for his round. Needing an eagle to shoot 59, he drilled his tee shot on the fast fairways of Waialae, hit 8-iron to 9 feet and thought he had made it. The putt stayed to the right and burned the edge of the cup, and Kisner had to settle for a 60. It was the lowest round of his career — but only the second-lowest round this week. 'Can't be that upset,' Kisner said. He went from making the cut on the number to a tie for sixth, though hardly in contention. Kisner still was nine shots out of the lead. Thomas had only a few stressful moments, such as the par-3 seventh when his tee shot bounded down a steep still on the right into a fluffy lie. He hit a flop shot to about 12 feet and hit the putt so pure he started walking even before it dropped. Thomas led by at least four shots the entire round. He made his first birdie with a two-putt on the par-5 ninth, drove into a greenside bunker on the par-4 10th and got another birdie and he was on his way. .....»»

Thomas sets 36-hole record and leads by 5

DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer br /> HONOLULU (AP) — Justin Thomas finished with another eagle and put himself in the PGA Tour record book again Friday in the Sony Open. One day after his 59 made him only the seventh player in PGA Tour history break 60, Thomas made an 8-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole at Waialae for a 6-under 64 to set the 36-hole scoring record on the PGA Tour. Thomas was at 17-under 123 and had a five-shot lead over Gary Woodland. The previous mark was 124, last matched at the 2015 BMW Championship by Jason Day at Conway Farm. 'It's cool,' Thomas said. 'Just like yesterday, anytime you can get your name in the record book, it's awesome. I had no idea until I finished.' Thomas started slowly, not picking up his first birdie until the fifth hole. Irritation from a three-putt bogey on the eighth hole got him going, and Thomas ran off four straight birdies around the turn. From there, no one got closer than four shots on another ideal day for scoring off the shore just up the road from Waikiki Beach. Woodland made a 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for his second straight 64. Woodland and Thomas as part of the final group could be a real power show — Woodland is regarded as one of the premier power players in golf, though he has been far more reserved off the tee, despite being tempted to hit driver. 'I did that my first couple times here and that didn't work out for me,' he said. 'I'm very comfortable with where my game is. Driver feels great, I just don't get many opportunities out there. I'm not complaining about being in the fairway, either.' Thomas wasn't bashful. He smashed a 355-yard drive down the 12th fairway that set up a flip wedge to 12 feet for his fourth straight birdie. He also took an unusual line on the 14th, hammering a high drive over the trees and bunker down the left side and back into the fairway, leaving him 70 yards to the green on the 430-yard hole. He pitched that up to just under 5 feet and missed the putt, one of the few he failed to convert. Zach Johnson had a 61 and Olympic gold medalist Justin Rose shot 64. They were in the group seven shots behind along with Hudson Swafford, who opened with a 62 but could only manage a 68. Jordan Spieth felt empty after rounds of 65-67, partially because he was nine shots behind and primarily because he had as many chances as Thomas over the last two days. Only one of them has been converting putt after putt. 'Just has a really cold putter this week,' Spieth said. 'I think it added to the frustration on the green, because the game is looking so easy to him. I felt like I was hitting the ball in the same location, I'm just being outdone on the green. That's something a little abnormal to me.' That made Thomas, his best friend in golf for the last 10 years, chuckle. 'Now he knows how a lot of people feel,' Thomas said. Thomas never made it to the North Shore on Thursday after his 59, though he was happy to have missed out on Spieth and Smylie Kaufman's ocean adventure that included a capsized kayak. He approached the next day like any other, trying to hit good shots, get birdie chances and expand his lead. He ticked every box, even picking up a record he knew nothing about. Thomas rolled in a 12-foot birdie from the collar left of the 15th green, only to give the shot back with a tee shot he pulled into the bunker. From the left rough, with the sun in his face, he belted it out and onto the green for another closing eagle. Coming off a three-shot victory last week at Kapalua, he is in prime position to join Ernie Els in 2003 as the only players to sweep Hawaii. 'He's not stopping, as we can see,' Spieth said. 'Someone has to go out and chase him.' Rose was one shot out of the lead when he finished — Thomas had yet to tee off — and was hopeful of staying in range. Rose knows from experience that starting strong and holding it together for four rounds isn't easy. He shot 60 in the first round at Disney in 2006, stretched his lead early in the second round and by the end of the week was five shots behind the winner. 'You definitely need the mindset when you're that far ahead to keep the accelerator down,' Rose said. 'But it's hard to keep that sort of momentum going, for sure.' .....»»

Former, current Tigresses reunite in Petron

Foton’s loss is Petron’s gain. The Tornadoes may have asserted its mastery over the Tri-Activ Spikers twice in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix in the past couple of years but Petron surely scored a big knockout punch in the recruitment war. Former Foton players Cherry Rondina and seasoned playmaker Rhea Dimaculangan bolted out of their former squad to join Petron. The Tri-Activ Spikers also landed Marivic Meneses while Carmela Tunay is also expected to sign a deal with Petron in a reunion of former and current University of Sto. Tomas players. The Tigresses will join former UST star Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, who led the Espana-based squad to its last UAAP crown seven years ago. Aside from the players, Petron also retained former Tigresses coach Shaq Delos Santos and ex-Foton assistant coach Ian Fernandez.      Tunay will only play in the Invitational Conference and will share the court with Petron’s biggest acquisition and fellow Virtual Playground talent Mika Reyes, who signed a two-year deal with the San Miguel Corporation club Wednesday after leaving F2 Logistics.         Rondina and Meneses would be coming in the All-Filipino Conference together with Far Eastern University stars Bernadeth Pons and Remy Palma, who already suited up for Petron last year, after their campaign in the UAAP. Petron’s recruitment coup sends a serious warning that the Tri-Activ Spikers desire to bring back their glory days when they won the 2014 PSL Grand Prix and 2015 All-Filipino Conference highlighted by a clean sweep of the tournament. Foton dethroned Petron in the 2015 Grand Prix in a dramatic three-game upset before sweeping the Tri-Activ Spikers in their conference finals rematch a month ago. The severely depleted Tornadoes lost seven players with Angeli Araneta, Patty Orendain, Carol Cerveza, Bia General, Kara Acevedo, Dimaculangan and Rondina making a mass exodus. In the Invitational Conference, only Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Maika Ortiz and Ivy Perez are the available holdovers with EJ Laure of UST and Jaja Santiago of National University playing in the UAAP. Foton is now recruiting players and holding tryouts to fill their roster.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles           .....»»

Reyes transfers, signs deal with Petron

Petron pulled off a huge recruitment coup after signing former three-time UAAP champion Mika Reyes to beef up its middle for the next season of the Philippine Superliga. The De La Salle product, last year's league ambassadress, inked a deal with the Tri-Activ Spikers after parting ways with F2 Logistics and long-time mentor Ramil De Jesus.  Reyes signed her contract Wednesday. 'It was indeed a very tough decision but Petron made it easier as we've laid out concrete plans for my personal and volleyball career,' said Reyes, who signed her contract at the San Miguel Corporation headquarters in Pasig with Virtual Playground manager and agent Charlie Dy and SMC sports director Alfrancis Chua. Petron made a well-timed decision of getting the services of the 22-year-old Reyes to fill in the gaping hole left by CJ Rosario, who is now pursuing a new career as a flight attendant. Reyes was a vital cog for DLSU, winning three championships in her five-year stay with the Taft-based squad including an incredible swan song in the UAAP Season 78. In the PSL, the 5-foot-11 Reyes was F2 Logistics' muscle in the middle when the Cargo Movers clinched its breakthrough title in the 2016 All-Filipino Conference against Foton. She also helped F2 Logistics salvage a third place finish in the import-laden Grand Prix. Reyes, who was a member of the F2 Logistics Manila that competed in the 2016 FIVB Women's Club World Championship held in Manila, is Petron's biggest recruited star since landing former players Gretchen Ho, Rachel Anne Daquis, Aby Marano, Fille Cainglet-Cayetano and Dindin Santiago-Manabat.  The Pulilan, Bulacan native will join FIVB WCWC teammate Ces Molina and multi-awarded lefty hitter Aiza Maizo-Pontillas.    --- br /> Follow this writer in Twitter @fromtheriles .....»»
