Tumbale wins gold for Negros
as competition goes underway

Ailyn Tumbale grabbed the gold in long jump girls 13-under to hoist the Negros Occidental banner high as competition in athletics went full blast in the Philippine Olympic Committee-Philippine Sports Commission Batang Pinoy 2012 National Finals in Iloilo yesterday.

Tumbale joined the list of other athletics gold medalists, that include Iloilo Province’s Lanz Halongon in shot put boys’ 14-5, Christopher Ejica of Dasmarinas City (2,000-meter run boys 13-under), Charies Mae Violanta of Laguna (shot put girls 14-15), Lierrence Sayenga of Marikina (long jump boys 13-under) and Jasmines Tayeo (high jump girls 14-15).

Also making a headway in the tally of early winners are the swimmers from Quezon City, led by Raissa Regata Gavino, who hauled three gold medals from the Iloilo Sports Complex swimming pool.

USLS–IS Baby Stingers to
defend Prov’l Meet title

The University of St. La Salle-Integrated School 12-Under basketball team will be defending their title in the Provincial Meet starting Dec. 16 after winning their third straight championship in the NOPSSCEA this season.

The Arland Blanco-mentored Baby Stingers defeated St. John’s Institute, 71-56, in the finals to assert their dominance in the tournament. The La Salle boys also prevailed over the SJI Baby Falcons in the elimination round.

Strengthening their defense in the first half, the Baby Stingers started off with a 12-0 run and gained 24-12 first quarter advantage as the Falcons had difficulty in bringing the ball past the midcourt.

Guirado, Cagara join Azkals
in semis match vs. Singapore

A few days ago Angel Guirado was unsure if his club Salgaocar F.C. will release him for the crucial AFF Suzuki Cup semifinal clash against Singapore tomorrow.

A day after the Azkals secured progression to the semi-final, Guirado was back in India as he was initially released to play for the group stage.

But on Wednesday, he was informed by national team liaison officer Ace Bright that his club has agreed to let the attacking midfielder continue his journey in the tournament with the Philippines.
