Behind the Scenes: The Heroes of ABS-CBN Sports

While the general public sees or hears the finished product on-air or online, most do not witness or appreciate those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes at ABS-CBN Sports.

Arocha wraps up Lady Chiefs stint with head held up high

Regine Arocha is calling it quits after five fruitful years donning the Arellano University jersey. The winger saw her collegiate women’s volleyball career end after the NCAA terminated Season 95 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Although the NCAA is looking at the possibility of extending the playing year of seniors of sporting events affected by the termination given they meet the eligibility requirements, Arocha has decided to hang up her Lady Chiefs jersey. The 2019 Collegiate Press Corps Volleyball Player of the Year for NCAA is looking forward to graduating from her Business Administration course this year. The NCAA does not allow student-athletes who have already graduated from their course to play further. “’Dun naman po sa extra playing year na binibigay nila, di na po siguro ako lalaro. Tama na po ‘yung six years in college,” said Arocha, who had to shift to an Education course before shifting back to Business Ad to max out her playing year. “Gusto ko na pong gumraduate,” she added. “My family is waiting for me to graduate po.” The two-time Finals Most Valuable Player admitted that it was disappointing to see her swan song end prematurely but understood that the decision of the league was for the welfare and safety of the players, officials, students and fans.   “Just like what I've said in my tweet, it hurts more than a heartbreak!”  said the do-it-all spiker. “Pinaghandaan po namin yun ng isang taon pero ganyan ‘yung nangyari.” “As a graduating player syempre goal po namin ‘yung magandang exit. Still I can't believe na ganito ‘yung nangyari,” she added. “But alam naman po namin na ‘yung safety po namin ‘yung iniisip nila kaya thankful din po kami sa pagiging caring nila.” Although it’s not the exit she envisioned, Arocha finished her tour of duty as the Queen Lady Chief with head held up high, leaving a winning legacy of three straight championships. She is still walking away a champion after the league decided to retain the title of all defending champions of affected sporting events.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 95: San Beda’s challenge fuels Arellano

Arellano University coach Obet Javier let his Lady Chiefs know during practice that San Beda University wanted to bring them down. The mentor lit a fire that served as three-time defending champion Arellano U’s motivation in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition on Monday. The Lady Chiefs got word that the Lady Red Spikers’ court leader Cesca Racraquin, looking to fire up her team, and San Beda were all looking forward for the marquee duel – a rematch of last year’s Final Four - between two unbeaten teams. “’Yung sa sinabi sa amin ni Cesca po inaantay nya po kami na makalaban. Parang gustong-gusto nya po kaming talunin,” said reigning Most Valuable Player Necole Ebuen. Arellano U accepted San Beda’s challenge and responded with a dominating performance to preserve their perfect record for the solo lead.    Ebuen and Regine Arocha, who saw action despite feeling under the weather, came through with an inspired game to lead the Lady Chiefs to a 25-20, 25-21, 25-22 win over the same team that denied them a chance of an outright Finals berth last year. “Nung training po namin kahapon, siyempre po si Ate Regine, nawala sa training namin. Yun mga natira po nag-focus po talaga sa amin si Coach Obet na, ‘mag-focus kayo na kailangang talunin nyo yung gustong talunin kayo,’” said Ebuen. “Parang gigil na gigil po sa amin. Kumbaga kami po di naman kami nanggigil sa kanila, hinayaan lang po namin sila na manggigil sila sa amin.” The Lady Red Spikers gave a decent fight with Racraquin and Nieza Viray at the helm but their efforts weren’t enough to save San Beda from having its three-game winning snapped. Javier’s post-practice pep talk did wonders for the Lady Chiefs, who before taking on San Beda allowed winless San Sebastian College to steal a set from them last Saturday. “So maganda rin naman yun para malaman din ng team ko na, ‘Uy, tsina-challenge tayo ng opponent so i-grab natin. Bigyan natin ng magandang laban ang kalaban natin,’” Javier said. The Lady Chiefs will face streaking University of Perpetual Help on Wednesday in a rematch of last year’s championship series.     ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
