UAAP tournament director talks about the merits of having the juniors play at same venue as their seniors

'Giving our junior teams the same playing conditions as their seniors is a big development for boys and girls who are preparing for their transition to college play. It is a prudent move.” That’s UAAP high school volleyball tournament director Otie Camangian speaking. In volleyball-power Thailand, elementary pupils, he added, are already playing on rubber-surfaced courts of international standard. “That’s how you develop world-class players. Start them young in a venue equipped with the right court and right equipment. By giving our juniors the right facilities, we are in effect protecting the breeding ground from which our future international players will be sourced.” Camangian should know whereof he speaks. After all he is a multi-achiever. As a Growling Tiger he played a key role in University of Santo Tomas’ two championships and two second-place finishes in the UAAP. He was also a many-time member of the national team, having taken part in four Southeast Asia Games. He obtained a doctorate in Physical Education, served as secretary general of the Philippine Amateur Volleyball Association, returned to the UAAP as its volleyball commissioner for nine years, and is now serving the league as tournament director in high school volleyball as an appointee of sub-host National University. Speaking fondly of his long stint as UAAP commissioner, the work, he said, was what weakened his eyesight. “Dito na nag-umpisang lumabo ang mata ko. I had to be present from the first game to the last in the UAAP. On non-playing days there was the mountain of paperwork to go through like reports and players’ eligibilities.” NU is reportedly grooming Camangian for a directorship in the school’s Sports Academy now under construction in Laguna.   strong>UAAP always leads /strong> Getting its junior players to compete in a venue only previously reserved for the nation’s major tournaments is, according to Camangian, another innovation started by the UAAP locally. Did you know that the UAAP under Camangian’s nine-year commissionership had introduced two earlier innovations that were later adopted by the International Volleyball Federation? These were, believe it or not, the video challenge the league introduced in Season 75 but which was abandoned the next year, and the 14-man lineup begun much earlier during Season 69. .....»»

Balanced Bullpups sweep Sotto-led Eaglets in UAAP Jrs. eliminations

STANDINGS NU 7-1 FEU-Diliman 6-2 Ateneo 5-3 Adamson 5-3 UST 4-4 DLSZ 3-5 UE 1-7 UPIS 1-7 Yet again, Carl Tamayo came up big for Nazareth School of National University in its heavyweight bout against Ateneo de Manila High School in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Tamayo’s basket and bonus quelled the Blue Eaglets’ late uprising and carried the Bullpups to a hard fought 78-71 decision on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The versatile big man only had seven points to go along with nine rebounds, but it was his offensive board and ensuing short stab that re-increased his team’s slim one-point margin into a 73-69 lead. “Good thing he converted it kasi he was in and out kanina,” head coach Goldwin Monteverde said post-game. Still, the defending champions had 46.3 ticks to go and Forthsky Padrigao’s scoop shot was able to pull them within two points. It was at that point, however, that Ernest Felicilda’s steady hands from the line joined forces with a stout defense to put the game away for NU. Felicilda wound up with 14 points, four coming from the free throw line in the last 27 seconds, on top of six assists, five rebounds, and four steals. Gerry Abadiano and Terrence Fortea also added 16 points apiece as the Bullpups started the second round by downing Ateneo – the same story from how they finished the first round. Now at 7-1, they have also widened the distance between them and now second-running Far Eastern University-Diliman. Nonetheless, coach Gold said they haven’t won anything just yet. “It’s just part of the war. We still have six games to go in the eliminations and ang importante ngayon, our next game,” he said. Sotto paced the Blue Eaglets with 24 points, 18 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks. He was well-defended in the endgame, however, and saw his side fall to their rivals for the second straight time. In the day’s other game, the University of the Philippines Integrated School finally got a taste of victory after downing De La Salle Zobel, 64-56. Rookie Allen Torres scored 22 points, including a pair of booming threes inside the last five minutes, while graduating guard Polo Labao did it all with 18 markers, nine rebounds, six assists, and five steals to make sure the Junior Maroons improved to 1-7. On the other hand, the Junior Archers dropped to 3-5 following the shock loss.

Barely a month after an Ateneo Junior High School bullying incident went viral on social media, the student and his mother issued a public apology.

ONE World Champions To Aspiring Martial Artists: ‘Have Self-Control, Discipline’

  Some of the best martial artists in ONE Championship stood together in the continuous campaign against bullying, all while encouraging budding practitioners to uphold the true values of their respective disciplines. Bullying has yet again become a hot topic in the Philippines when a viral video on social media, involving a martial arts practitioner, made the headlines a few weeks ago. In the video, the junior high school taekwondo athlete was seen humiliating and physically abusing his schoolmate in a lavatory of an established university in the Philippines.   The incident left a sour taste in many people's mouths, with some thinking that martial arts has become a tool for people to exploit others. That thought, however, is something many ONE World Champions wish to take away. "Bullying is not in the vocabulary of a real martial arts practitioner. Martial artists have self-control, discipline, respect, and humility. Being abusive is not [in] a martial artist's attitude," explained ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio. "This world needs superheroes, not villains. We are totally against bullying. One wrongful martial artist doesn't define the whole community of martial arts. That is not the case at all." ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang believes coaches should instill the core values of the discipline to the aspiring practitioner from the very start. "First of all, martial artists are supposed to be taught not just how to fight, but values must be instilled. They must develop character more than the skills and fighting itself. The essence of martial arts must be the first thing that must be taught," he stressed. "Martial artists are supposed to protect the weak, not bully them. Martial arts is not supposed to be a weapon for a bully. "For trained martial artists, when a bully is around, you simply restrain. Refuse to engage into a fight until you have no choice but to fight back. Show them kindness — that's the best way to handle bullying, I think." While not everyone will have access to martial arts training, ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera suggests taking a different approach. Admitting that he was bullied in the past, the beloved Filipino-American unveiled a video on social media. In the clip, he encouraged bullying victims to speak up, and others to further educate people about the ill effects of bullying. “I was bullied when I was growing up, even though I was the bigger kid," he said on the video. "Bullying is a very serious problem, both for the bullies and the bullied. They both need our help. Together, we can all make a difference.".....»»

UAAP: L-Jay-RJ looks like FEU s next great backcourt

Jasper Parker and Axel Inigo will no longer play for Far Eastern University. Like they always are, however, the Tamaraws remain full-stocked at the backcourt. Of course, veterans Hubert Cani and Wendell Comboy are now ready and raring for their turn at the driver’s seat. And behind those two await a pair of products from the green and gold’s high school program who may very well end up to be the next ones in the school’s long line of great guards. Already there is L-Jay Gonzales who, in his spot minutes on the floor in his first year in the Seniors squad, already began opening eyes. Described as a lead guard who has the both the triple-doubling talent and the burst of Russell Westbrook, the 5-foot-9 playmaker flashed glimpses of that as a rookie reserve to the likes of Parker, Inigo, Cani, and Comboy. And now, Gonzales is just waiting for his Paul George to arrive. “Ako po, excited lang talaga na magkasama kami ulit,” he said. He was talking about RJ Abarrientos, his former partner-in-crime with the Baby Tamaraws who is finishing up his last playing year in the Juniors. Three years ago, Gonzales and Abarrientos were key cogs in what was a pleasant surprise of a championship for FEU-Diliman. Once Abarrientos finishes up with high school and moves on up to college, the two are nothing but determined to bring their school back to the mountaintop in the collegiate ranks. “Nag-usap na nga po kami ni L-Jay tapos sabi niya sa akin, bahala ka muna sa Jrs. kasi pagdating mo naman dito, ako bahala sayo,” RJ, the nephew of Philippine basketball legend Johnny, shared. He then continued, “Basta pagdating mo rito, ibi-build natin ‘tong bagong FEU.” Abarrientos can do what Gonzales can on the basketball court, albeit without the same sort of explosiveness. What he does have over his running mate, though, is size – standing at 5-foot-11 and possessing a stocky built. That is exactly why a backcourt pairing of Gonzales and Abarrientos looks like it will not have any holes. “Sinasabi talaga sa amin, yung connection namin, nung Juniors pa lang, nakita na kung anong magagawa. Sana, mapakita rin namin yun sa Seniors,” Abarrientos said. Still, all of that is easier said than done and, without a doubt, the L-Jay and RJ connection still has to prove itself when it finally goes online for the FEU Tamaraws. “Siyempre, nakaka-pressure po lalo na sa akin kasi makakasabayan ko po ang isang Abarrientos,” Gonzales said. He then continued, “Pero pagbubutihan po namin na mag-click ang duo namin.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Rizal on beating bullies: Use brains, not brawn

That Jose Rizal was bullied, at age 9, in the town school of Bian, is well known for its result: Rizal beat the bigger, older boy and was never bullied again. Then, as the national narrative goes, when the child matured into adulthood, he took on an even bigger bully, the Spanish colonization of the Philippines, conquering it through his life and works to gain freedom and the emergence of the Filipino nation. Rizal's experience over a century ago takes on contemporary relevance in the wake of the viral video on bullying taken at the Ateneo de Manila University junior high school that brought into public discourse what has been silently endured by many. How Rizal coped with b...Keep on reading: Rizal on beating bullies: Use brains, not brawn.....»»
