PVL: Angels dominate Lady Troopers in rebound win

PetroGazz overwhelmed a weary PacificTown Army side, 25-15, 25-15, 25-19, on Wednesday to get back on the winning track in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jeanette Panaga and Jovielyn Prado provided the firepower for the Angels as PetroGazz evened its record to a 2-2 win-loss slate while handing the Lady Troopers their first loss in the season-ending conference after a two-game romp. Panaga pounded seven kills and added three kill blocks and three aces to lead the Angels, who rebounded from a straight sets loss to unbeaten defending champion Creamline last Saturday in a rematch of the Reinforced Conference Finals. Prado had 12 points and eight excellent receptions while Jonah Sabete and Paneng Mercado scored nine markers each. PetroGazz head coach Arnold Laniog felt that they had the advantage with the core of PacificTown Army coming off a one-week local league in Cagayan De Oro while Lady Troopers top hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga came from a stint in the Philippine Superliga Finals with Cignal the night before.      “Eh ‘yung Air force at Army galing sa one week tournament, sila pa naglaban dun,” he said. “Tinake advantage namin na pagod sila. Di rin ganun pa nakaka-recover katawan nila.” PetroGazz broke an 18-18 deadlock in the third set with three straight points for a 21-18 lead. After a Cai Baloaloa attack error, the Angels poured a closing four-point barrage with Sabete ending the 75-minute encounter with a kill block on Nene Bautista. Royse Tubino was the only PacificTown Army in double figures with 10 points while Gonzaga was limited to only eight markers.   ---              Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PLDT, Petron survive cliffhanger battles

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- Fans inside the jampacked Corpus Christi Gym here were treated to a night of thrill and excitement as Petron and PLDT Home Fibr carved out amazing five-setter victories in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference on Saturday. Sisi Rondina delivered a performance to remember after dropping 32 points in the defending champion Blaze Spikers’ 25-23, 24-26, 24-26, 25-22, 19-17, win over Foton to lock the no. 1 seeding in the quarterfinals. The 5-foot-6 hotshot towered over the giants of the Tornadoes to fill up the stats sheet with 27 attacks, a game-high four kill blocks and an ace laced with 20 digs and 10 excellent receptions for Petron’s 11th straight win to end preliminary round. The Blaze Spikers closed the round with a 13-1 record at the top spot. “Grabe! Grabe! Bilib ako sa puso ng team. Ramdam na namin yung pagod nila pero siyempre sabi ko nga sa kanila wag maggigive up,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos. “Talagang grabe sila (Foton). Grabeng effort yung ginawa nila at yung eagerness nila na talunin kami.”         Foton controlled the fifth set early before Petron stepped on the gas to engage the Tornadoes in a mad dash to the finish. Rondina made amends on an earlier error with an off the block kill to put Petron at match point before Bernadeth Pons sealed the deal with a cross-court hit. Skipper Ces Molina and Mika Reyes finished with 13 points each while Pons had 12 markers all coming off attacks for Petron, which will take on Marinerang Pilipina in the knockout quarterfinals. Dindin Santiago-Manabat led Foton, which fell to 7-6 card tied with Cignal, with 31 points anchored on 28 kills and three kill blocks. Jaja Santiago had 26 markers while Elaine Kasilag had 11 for the Tornadoes. Meanwhile, Jerrili Malabanan and Grethcel Soltones rose to the occasion as PLDT Home Fibr shocked powerhouse F2 Logistics, 25-21, 26-28, 15-25, 25-19, 15-11, in the curtain-raiser. Down 1-2 in the match as the Cargo Movers dominated them in the resumption of the third set, the duo of Malabanan and Soltones lifted the Power Hitters to force a decider, where both squads fought toe-to-toe lasting for three hours and 31 minutes due to air-conditioning malfunction. Tied at nine in the fifth set, Malabanan scored three of the team’s four straight points to reach match point, 14-10, before Kalei Mau saved a point. But Soltones soared to close out the match and sent F2 Logistics to its second straight defeat. Malabanan and Soltones finished with 21 points apiece with the San Sebastian College standout also putting up 24 digs and 19 excellent receptions. PLDT finished the preliminary with a 6-9 win-loss card, locked in at No.6. Game officials decided to temporarily stop the match with F2 Logistics holding an 8-7 lead in the third frame. It took almost an hour for the venue to reach a cool temperature before referees resumed the game with the Cargo Movers blazing hot dominating the third set for a 2-1 match advantage. But the Power Hitters caught fire in the last two sets also drawing a great game from setter Jasmine Nabor, who had 31 excellent sets on top of six points, as well as Aiko Urdas adding 10 markers. Mau erupted with 28 points including 19 digs and 10 excellent receptions while Ara Galang and Majoy Baron had 19 and 18 points, respectively, for the Cargo Movers, who suffered their second straight setback. Aby Marano added 12 markers while Kim Fajardo returned to action from a fracture finger last conference with 15 excellent sets as F2 Logistics slid to No. 2 with an 11-2 card......»»

Neri-Chaves Clan: A Tale of Southern Nobility

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, the crown jewel of Mindanao, is the country’s newest boom town, experiencing an accelerated level of modernization and real estate investments. Infrastructures such as hotels, malls and condominium towers are vigorously constructed one after the other to accommodate the influx of new residents and visitors to the city. Proof that, Cagayan de Oro as it is fondly called, had long since shed its small-town roots, to become the mega melting pot of pioneering entrepreneurs and upwardly mobile young professionals that it is today. Apart from the perks and comforts of living in a highly urbanized city, people who call Cagayan de Oro home also bask in its rich and colorful history that dates back to pre-colonial times. One clan in particular has been a prominent figure in the city’s enduring saga and cultural evolution. The Neri-Chaves family are descendants of a strong-willed Rajah whose resoluteness drove him to seek out dominions beyond his stronghold’s fertile terrains in Lanao province. The Malay prince, whose name was Samporna, or Sanskrit for ‘perfect’, decided to invade Cagayan or Kalambagohan as it was then known. Excerpts from the writings of the Neri-Chaves family historian, Filomeno M. Bautista, recounted how a potential bloody struggle was averted, when the then chief of Kalambagohan, Datu Bagani, sent his beautiful daughter guarded by his bravest warriors to meet Rajah Samporna. She was to initiate the conditional surrender, so that their people would not be enslaved by the invaders. It was told that the Rajah, captivated by Datu Bagani’s daughter, ended up marrying her. The prince also built a fortress around their village in Kalambagohan to protect them from other conquistadores. Rajah Samporna later succeeded the Datu as ruler of Cagayan. He also converted from Islam to Christianity to solidify his devotion to his wife’s religion, and in 1779 was baptized by a Spanish priest with a peculiarly Italian name, Neri. It ushered an era of peace in Mindanao, when Muslims lived harmoniously with Christians. The Neris intermarrying with the Chaveses of Cagayan was perhaps providential as it produced one of the most enduring clans in the country. Today, the Neri-Chaves clan is many thousand strong. Well-known lawyer and congressman Rufus Bautista Rodriguez attributes the successes enjoyed by many family members throughout many generations to the tireless pursuit of life’s true purpose. “We are hardworking people. We are also fortunate to have had many individuals in the family who continue to inspire us, like Vice President Emmanuel Neri Pelaez and Ambassador Felino Neri”, Rodriguez said, adding in jest, “At mga gwapo, gwapa pa!” Most if not all of Cagayan de Oro’s earliest leaders, from Governors to Mayors, were members of the Neri-Chaves family. Some became pioneers in other fields like business, education and the arts, from Chief Justice Marcelo Fernan to musicologist and concert pianist Vilma May Chaves Cataylo. The clan has had three grand reunions, first in 1985, then in 1993, and the most recent one took place in August 2016 where hundreds of family members came together from all over the world to rekindle family ties. Jessica Dingcong, who spearheaded the recent reunion held at the Chaves family-owned Chali Beach and Mallberry Suites in Cagayan de Oro City, wants to inspire the next generation to carry on the legacy of benevolence and integrity of their forebears. “We should be proud that we are very family oriented,’ Dingcong said. In attendance at the grand reunion were the Neri-Cheves clan’s many young professionals and millennials. Sixth generation Neri-Chaves and journalist Alessandra Marie Chaves Jalandoni, who carries her nickname Apples professionally, admits feeling the pressure of belonging to a family of achievers. “We have some pretty big shoes to fill, so we soldier on, and never give up,,” Jalandoni said, adding that, “We have always been taught to do the right thing, and not just what looks good on paper.” Jalandoni’s maternal grandfather Engineer Camilo Vamenta Chaves was a World War II veteran and subsequently Dean at the family-owned Liceo de Cagayan University. Her mother Alma Marie Chaves Jalandoni is a pioneer in garments manufacturing and export in the Philippines. Current Social Security Services Commissioner Pompee La Viña will head the next Neri-Chaves grand reunion in 2018. La Viña is the son of Lourdes Chaves Maestrado La Viña who was the first woman elected to the City Council in Cagayan de Oro. His younger brother is former Ateneo School of Government dean and climate change lead negotiator Tony La Viña. Commissioner La Viña hopes to welcome many more family members to their tight-knit Mindanaon clan. “It roots us in Mindanao, the blood of Mindanao is running through us,” he said. La Viña also ponders on how leadership is ingrained in the members of the clan. After all they are descendants of a warrior prince. But the word is also taking on a new meaning as the Neris and Chaveses usher Mindanao to its most vibrant era. “We will always be leaders, we are simply inclined to lead,” La Viña maintained, “but to lead as serving the people rather than ruling them.” (By J. C. Bautista) &'160; 121&'160;total views, 121&'160;views today.....»»
