After a noteworthy career with in the UAAP with the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, Jerrili has found success with in the Premier Volleyball League, playing for the PayMaya High Flyers. A career in volleyball wasn’t always the main goal for Jerrili however, as she had her sights set on a career in the medical field. “My parents, they really pushed me, even since I was in high school, that they want me to stay in the medical field, because my dad, most of his sisters are doctors.” Malabanan told ABS-CBN Sports.

For now, volleyball is my priority.” “Playing with a club team, I think this is one of my priorities for now.” Malabanan added. Now on her second season with the PVL, Malabanan was an integral part in BaliPure’s Open Conferece championship run last season. This season, Malabanan and the High Flyers have secured a twice-to-beat slot in the semifinals.

Right now though, volleyball is at the top of the list, and she’d like to keep playing until she can. Just in case she does end up heading to Med School, what field does Jerrili intend on taking up? “I really like kids, so probably Pediatrics,” shares Jerrili. “Or my mom also wants me to try Pharmacy.”   Catch Jerrili Malabanan and the PayMaya High Flyers as they try to become the PVL Season 2 Reinforced Conference Champions!

RJ Abarrientos u-turns from plan to play one year in NCAA Jrs.

RJ Abarrientos will remain in Far Eastern University – whether or not he makes it into the Seniors Team A for UAAP Season 81. “Wala naman pong problema sa akin kung mag-Team B muna ako. Napag-usapan din naman kasi namin ni tito na dapat tapusin ko yung paglalaro ko rito sa FEU,” the nephew of Philippine basketball legend and Tamaraw pride Johnny Abarrientos shared. In the last three years, RJ has been starring for the Baby Tamaraws in the UAAP Juniors. Last season, he averaged 13.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.8 assists to help his team make the playoffs before they fell to University of Sto. Tomas in the stepladder. He committed to FEU Seniors early this year, but with a glut of guards already entrenched in Morayta such as speedster Jasper Parker, scorer Wendell Comboy, heady Axel Inigo, versatile RJ Ramirez, and prized recruit L-Jay Gonzales, his place in Team A for the upcoming collegiate wars was yet to be made certain. That is why the now 18-year-old, already over the UAAP Juniors’ age limit, was mulling a short stint in the NCAA Juniors. There, he would have been able to play one more season as the league’s age limit is 19. As reported by Reuben Terrado of spin.ph, Abarrientos had an offer to suit up for powerhouse Mapua High School. As it turns out, though, defending champion and rising power College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills was also in play for his services. However, after much thought, the 5-foot-11 guard has decided to stay put in FEU. “Blessed naman ako kasi maganda na yung nasimulan ko as a Tamaraw. Ito na yung inspirasyon ko going to college,” he said. And whatever happens, he will wear no color other than green and yellow. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PNP to continue crackdown vs. tambays amid criticism

The Philippine National Police (PNP) will continue its strict crackdown against "tambays," police chief Dir. Gen. Oscar D. Albayalde said on Monday as he maintained that they did not misinterpret President Rodrigo Duterte's directive on loiterers. While noting the death of Genesis "Tisoy" Argoncillo was unfortunate, Albayalde said the campaign, which supposedly enforces local ordinances on peace and order, did not target mere loiterers. "Let me clearly emphasize that there was never any misinterpretation of our President's (Rodrigo Dutere) earlier directive to the PNP to do everything within the bounds of the law," Albayalde said in a press briefing at Camp Crame in Quezon City. ...Keep on reading: PNP to continue crackdown vs. tambays amid criticism.....»»
