Ateneo back on top of UAAP women s badminton after 5 years

Ateneo de Manila University capped a Cinderella run by annexing its fourth women's title - and the first in five years - with a 3-0 conquest of UP Friday at the Rizal Memorial Badminton Hall. Chanelle Lunod took 79 minutes to beat Poca Alcala, 21-19, 14-21, 21-16, in the first singles before the Lady Eagles got the needed buffer after Samantha Ramos rallied from a set down to dispose Jessie Francisco, 16-21, 21-17, 21-16, in the second singles. Lunod and Geva de Vera, who were later named co-tournament MVPs, dominated Leah Inlayo and Mary Ann Marañon, 21-13, 21-8, in the first doubles to seal the deal for Ateneo. In the Finals opener, the Lady Eagles stunned the Lady Maroons, 3-2. Before sweeping top-ranked UP, Ateneo overcame twice-to-beat NU in the Final Four to make it to the Finals after missing the bus last year. Prior to winning this one, the Lady Eagles last ruled in 2013 behind Rookie-MVP Jana de Vera, Geva's sister. Sarah Joy Barredo of the Lady Bulldogs was named top rookie......»»

Thais, Austria-Norway rule BVR On Tour Surigao

LIANGA, Surigao del Sur -  Thailand 2's Nasuda Janmong and Saranya Laesood, avenging their lone loss of the competition, captured the women's gold medal with a 21-13, 21-18 victory over BanKo-Perlas 1's Dzi Gervacio and Bea Tan in the Beach Volleyball Republic On Tour Gran Ola, Lianga leg Sunday here. Another international pair, Austria-Norway tandem of Marian Klaffinger and Aleksander Sorum, ruled the men's division following a 21-19, 21-14 win over Air Force's Ranran Abdilla and Jessie Lopez. First time as partners, Klaffinger and Sorum also went perfect in the two-day double gender event, as everything clicked right from the get-go. "It's our first tournament. We spontaneously played this tournament. We had fun," said Klaffinger, who played for Austria with Moritz Fabian Kindi in the FIVB Beach World Tour Manila Open last May. "They (Air Force) played well. It was a tough match but I'm happy that we won it.  We had some relatively easy matches at the beginning so that we could get together well. I'm happy that we played that good in the final," he added. Playing much better in the game that mattered most, the power-hitting pair of Janmong and Laesood made major adjustments in last Saturday's 18-21, 17-21 loss to Gervacio and Tan in pool play to become triumphant.        Janmong and Laesood bested BanKo-Perlas 2's Amanda Villanueva and Roma Doromal, 21-13, 21-18, to arrange a women's championship duel with Gervacio and Tan, who foiled an all-Thailand showdown following a come-from-behind 18-21, 21-18, 15-13 over Kijja Khantarak and Sirinuch Kawfong. Despite the tough loss, Khantarak and Sirinuch Kawfong still has something to celebrate of, as the pair claimed the bronze medal with a 21-16, 21-14 victory over Villanueva and Doromal. In the quarterfinals, Gervacio and Tan rallied from a set down to beat Ateneo's Ponggay Gaston and Jules Samonte, 19-21, 21-12, 15-3, while Villanueva and Doromal won over Lianga's Leah Mae Pontillo and Maria Adabog. Thailand 1's Khantarak and Kawfong overpowered University of the Philippines' Justine Dorog and Abi Goc, 21-12, 21-3, while their compatriots Janmong and Laesood bested National University's Klymince Orilleneda and Antonnete Landicho, 21-16, 21-14. Abdilla and Lopez prevailed over Davao 1's Calvin Sarte and Edmar Flores, 21-19, 21-19, to set up a men's Finals meeting with Klaffinger and Sorum, a 21-16, 21-13 winner over Malaysia's Raja Nazmi Hussin and Mohd Aizzat Zokri. Sarte and Flores outlasted Hussin and Zokri, 22-20, 12-21, 15-12 to clinch third place......»»

Feeling peckish about chicken

  Before anything else, I would like to greet Mommy and Daddy Tagle---the parents of Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle---a very happy anniversary as they celebrate 62 years of wedded bliss. I had the honor of visiting them last week for My Pope magazine, a glossy inspired by Pope Francis featuring all things Christian and promoting family values (available at 7-11 outlets - that's where I buy my copies). I shared with them a lovely meal of beef bourguignon and pasta by chef Jessie Sincioco. During the meal, I couldn't help but notice the concern of Cardinal Tagle's father for our driver's food. I guess compassion and concern for others really runs in the Tagle ...Keep on reading: Feeling peckish about chicken.....»»
