Nietes, Bautista
remember Panaad fights

Philippine boxing team campaigners Gerson Nietes of Bacolod City and Ian Clark Bautista of Himamaylan City were at the Panaad Stadium yesterday to watch the boxing competition among aspiring pugs from the different local government units in the province.

The two young boxers, who have impressed the leaders of the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines with their skills, are in the city for a two-week break from training. Both remember the days when they were representing their hometowns in the Panaad inter-LGU tournament.

Seventeen-year-old Bautista, who captured the interest of the amateur boxing world with his stunning victory against European Cup champion Alexander Samoylov of Russia in the President’s Cup in Indonesia last year, said the Panaad competition helped him hone his skills.

Austria, Ardina pace
PHL-Am closed elims

Jonar Austria and Dottie Ardina took charge of their respective divisions despite over par cards, with the former shooting a 73 for a one-stroke lead over Reymon Jaraulla and John Kier Abdon while the latter wresting a four-shot lead over Sunshine Baraquiel with a 76 in the Philippine Amateur Match Play (Closed) Championship at the lightning fast greens of the challenging Sherwood Hills Golf Club, in Cavite.

Sherwood Hills, a Golf Digest top 100 golf course, showed its grit and toughness with its course conditions. The elements made the all natural terrain of Sherwood Hills not an easy target for the cream of the crop competitors.

Jonar Austria, hit two birdies against three bogeys for a 35-38 card as he led the field in the 36-hole medal play elimination.
