DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/17 Jan) – Zamboanga City, known as the City of Flowers in the South, will host the 2008 National Private School Athletic Association (PRISAA) Championship slated April 7-13, bringing the games back to Western Mindanao after four years.

Commercially branded for tourism as "Asia's Latin City", the local government of Zamboanga under Mayor Celso Lobregat and Western Mindanao PRISAA hosted the national games for tertiary private schools for the third time following its first hosting in 1993, and again in 2004.

"The hosting was given to Zamboanga after no other cities or province expressed interest to bid and since they are interested to host the games," said Joaquin Sarabia, Davao Region PRISAA athletic manager.

Sarabia, also the sports director of the University of Mindanao, said many have wanted the PRISAA national games to be held here in Davao but "we don’t have a sports complex".

"Almost all the regional presidents wants the national games to be held here," said Sarabia.

Games on tap in the PRISAA games include baseball, basketball, volleyball, swimming, softball, football, taekwondo, sepak takraw and track and field.

Some 5,000 athletes, coaches and officials from 17 regions across the country are expected to attend the annual sports event.

On the other hand, preparations are now underway for the advance games of basketball and volleyball in the Davao City PRISAA Meet Jan. 26 and27.

These games, Sarabia said, will be held every Saturday and Sunday until Feb. 9 and 10, a weekend before the opening ceremonies slated Feb. 22.

Twelve of the 13 participating member schools are entered in the men's basketball led by defending champs University of Mindanao Wildcats. Half of this number will vie for title in the women's basketball.

In volleyball, 11 teams will see action in the men's class and eight in the distaff side led by reigning titlist Holy Cross of Davao College volleybelles. (Rico Biliran / MindaNews)

PRISAA Elimination Games: Bulldogs defeat Wildcats
Posted by Riza Lacbao in Other Stories
Thursday, January 17. 2008

The Southern City Colleges (SCC) Bulldogs’ Team emerged as the champion against the Wildcats of the Universidad de Zamboanga (UZ) of the Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) Elimination Games held recently at the Multi-Purpose Covered Court of Ateneo de Zamboanga University (MPCC-ADZU).

During the championship game, the Wildcats were leading in the 1st quarter with a score 17-14. In the 2nd quarter, the score was 36-29 in favor of the Wildcats.*

The Wildcats, composed of Acompianado, Sebastian, Garcines, Pajuelas, Malabago, and Gaviola smoothly took part and followed every rule of the game with attacking defense while Sebastian led them to lead in the first few minutes of the 3rd quarter.

In the 4th quarter, Coach Ednie Morones regrouped the Bulldogs and combined a sizzling concentration and trapping defense, leading them to eventual victory.

The Bulldogs did more in the 3rd and 4th quarters than they had in the 1st and 2nd quarters with solid defenses from Mendoza, Cordero, Ramirez, Tandih, Baldebarona and Angeles to lead the Bulldogs to an 81-74 victory over the Wildcats.

PRISAA Regional Executive Director Prof. Elbert Atilano said “majority of the SCC basketball players will represent the PRISAA Regional Games on February 7-9, 2008 at Pagadian City with selected players from Universidad de Zamboanga (UZ) and Ateneo De Zamboanga University (ADZU) to augment the Zamboanga cage team”.

The game was in preparation for the fast-approaching 2008 PRISAA National Games which will be held in Asia’s Latin City on April 6-12. (Mon L. Follosco)

Upset mars '08 DC-Prisaa men's volleyball opener

THE University of Immaculate Conception (UIC) spikers scored a resounding upset victory in the opening day of this year's Davao City Private School Athletic Association (DC-PRISAA) men's volleyball competition Saturday at the Brokenshire College Gym.

UIC pulled off a stunning 23-25, 31-29, 27-25 upset over tough and defending men's champion University of Mindanao (UM).

After dropping the heartbreaking first set, the Bonifacio St.-based spikers played well enough and showed some spunk in the pressure-packed second and third frames to finally pull away with the win.

Last year's runner-up Holy Cross of Davao College notched its first victory at the expense of Brokenshire College via by default.

In the women's contest, defending champion Holy Cross of Davao College defeated University of Immaculate Conception in straight sets, 25-15, 25-9, to open its title retention bid on a bright note.

Holy Cross displayed its awesome form to beat UIC and notch its first win in the tournament that serves as selection basis for the city's delegation to the Davao Region PRISAA Meet slated in second week of March.

The wards of Exequil Tomines came out blazing right from the outset hitting in all angles with its booming spikes courtesy of great set up by Elvie Mariquit who tallied an unusual eight ace serves.

Spikers Jasmine Burcelis, Aiza Armacion and Mykah Ramos combined for 29 kills with 12, 10 and seven, respectively.

UM volleybelles completed the opening day victors with a 25-9, 25-6 demolition of Brokenshire College.

In men's basketball, UM started its title defense on a right track beating DMMA-Davao College of Southern Philippines, 64-40.

Last year's runner-up Holy Cross of Davao College bested San Pedro College, 82-27 while Rizal Memorial College shocked Ateneo De Davao University, 61-58.

Brokenshire College posted its first win by besting University of Immaculate Conception, 75-59.

UM lady dribblers sizzle
By Marianne Saberon-Abalayan

REIGNING women's national champion University of Mindanao (UM) Cardinals proved too much for their rivals as they hacked out huge wins in the 2008 DC Prisaa Meet basketball competition over the weekend.

The Cardinals, with dynamic coach Crisanthemum "Ining" Sarabia at the helm, crushed the Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Lady Blue Knights, 87-13, at the Rizal Memorial Colleges (RMC) Gym Saturday.

Sarabia's wards followed it up with an overwhelming 106-26 victory against the Brokenshire College (BC) and a 96-30 triumph over Davao Doctors College (DDC) Sunday at the San Pedro College (SPC) Gym.

Men's regional champion UM Wildcats tamed the RMC Bulldogs, 60-54, to also share the limelight in the cagefest organized as part of the Davao City Private Schools Athletic Association (DC-Prisaa) Meet.

The Bulldogs bounced back with an easy win over DMMA College of Southern Philippines (DCSP).

The Agro-Industrial Foundation College (AIFC) Sailors sank BC, 66-51, Saturday but the latter recovered by humbling STI College, 89-62, the next day.

The Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) whipped University of the Immaculate Conception (UIC), 73-49, in another men's game.

In the girls' side, RMC downed BC, 40-33, while SPC clobbered AdDU, 41-29, only to fall at the hands of the BC cagebelles, 53-73, in a later match.

Games will resume on Saturday in the Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP)-sanctioned cage loop.

The champion teams will represent the city to the regional meet in March.

Quezon will represent Region IV-A after beating Laguna in the finals while Cavite will represent the region in the women's side after defeating the Jayvee Gayoso-coached Batangas team.

Nopsscea wrests 13 titles
Two more major titles fell into NOPSSCEA's coffers yesterday as the Negros Occidental contingent finished with 13 team crowns – the most for any delegation – in the Western Visayas Private Schools Athletic Association Meet in Kalibo, Aklan.

The twin wins that came in women's volleyball and men's basketball complemented earlier victories in men and women's table tennis, men and women's taekwondo, men and women's chess, men's badminton, women's athletics, women's lawn tennis and men's football.

Roger Banzuela, NOPSSCEA sports task force chairman, said attributed the good showing to the early preparation of the athletes. The NOPSSCEA shifted from a weekends-only event into a week-long tournament last September.

The winners will move on to represent Western Visayas in the National PRISAA scheduled to begin April 6 in Zamboanga City .

Aching to avenge their shocking elimination-round loss, the NOPSSCEA cagers erased Iloilo 's twice-to-beat edge yesterday morning with a 70-69 win, before going on to dethrone their rivals with a comfortable 93-61 victory in the winner-take-all duel.

The women's volleyball squad also bagged the title at the expense of Iloilo yesterday. The NOPSSCEA volleybelles came-from-behind to snatch a 25-27, 25-21, 25-21, 25-18 triumph at the Augusto B. Legaspi Gym.

The NOPSSCEA spikers dragged Iloilo to a rubber match only to lose 25-19, 21-25, 25-22, 25-23.

Aside from men's volleyball, Iloilo also ruled men and women's swimming, men's athletics, sepak takraw, women's badminton and men and women's karatedo.

NOPSSCEA basketball coach Dennis Tumayan of West Negros College gave credit to standout playmaker Alfie Villariza for his steady play throughout the tournament.

Villariza pumped in 29 points, including 19 in the first half, in the title-clinching win. He also poured 26 points in the win that forced a rubber match.

Tumayan said the team needed to adjust to the referees' calls in the finals. “They were calling it really tight. It was difficult to play honest pressure defense,” he said.

Tumayan said some major decisions by the referees contributed to his team's 90-84 loss to Iloilo in the elimination round. One of them was a technical foul slapped on guard Arrom Aledron who accidentally poked an Iloilo player's eye, while the player was shooting the ball late in the fourth period.

Tumayan didn't take any chances in the all-or-nothing showdown yesterday, sending an all-WNC crew in the opening period, a ploy that worked wonders as the Negrenses raced to a 53-38 lead at halftime.

Vengie Vergara added 26 markers, including four triples, while Bernard Suante and Paul Bacillote chipped in 8 apiece. NOPSSCEA earlier defeated Antique, 105-43; Aklan, 81-46, and Capiz, 88-71.*CPT

Cebu rules PRISAA Reg’l Meet 198 golds ahead of closest rival
Monday, February 11, 2008

Host Cebu dominated all but one of the sporting events featured in the three-day 2008 Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) Regional Meet, which came to a close yesterday at the University of San Carlos (USC) Main Campus Gym.

In its final assault, PRISAA-Cebu hauled more than half of its second day output to ammass a total of 214 golds, 56 silvers, and 24 bronzes at the end of the multi-event gathering.

Cebu literally buried its rivals alive, with Bohol placing second with only 16 gold, 48 silver, and 14 bronze medals. Oriental Negros came in third with 15 golds, 112 silvers, and 23 bronzes.

Bohol got the chunk of its gold medals from softball title, thanks to host Cebu for not fielding in a team.

In last day of the competition, USC scored a twinkill in basketball event - both in merciless fashion. The Warriorettes annihilated Bohol, 103-35, while their men’s counterpart walloped Oriental Negros, 90-66.

The USC Warriors of coach Jay Ramirez and Mike Reyes were leading only by five early in the fourth period, but closed the game with an 18-0 bang to come up with a 24-point romp.

Outside the USC gym, the MLSDF-backed USJ-R Lady Jaguars scored a 3-0 sweep over FU, while USC bested the FU men’s squad in four sets for another sweep in volleyball event.

Over at the USC-Technological Center in Talamban, the Cebuanos escaped past OrNeg, 3-2, to take home the football championship.

OrNeg enjoyed a 1-0 lead at halftime courtesy of Michael Tulang’s goal at the 16th, but Marvin Abelas sneaked in a goal with just a minute gone by in the final half to knot the count at 1-all.

A goal by Paul Nino de la Victoria put Cebu in front, 2-1, but James Rubio of NegOr again tied the count, 2-all.

At crunchtime, lady luck smiled at the Cebuano booters as De la Victoria found the back of the new at the 77th to shut the lights off the Negrense visitors. Ironically, De la Victoria was handed a yellow card for removing his shirt after his second goal - an infraction of the FIFA rules.

At the Baseline Sports and Recreation Center, Cebu City got four golds for topping the men and women’s lawn tennis.

The hosts also ruled badminton and chess both in the men and women’s divisions. The karatekas sealed Cebu’s bid with 10 golds and a silver. — Caecent No-ot Magsumbol

In the other match, Agro Industrial Foundation Sailors romped past Brokenshire Colleges, 108-85.

Meanwhile, San Pedro College solidified its bid to enter the final four after routing past Davao Doctors College, 63-52 joining defending champion University of Mindanao, Rizal Memorial Colleges and Brokenshire College.

Friday, February 22, 2008

THE Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Blue Knights will face the University of Mindanao (UM) Wildcats in a sudden-death match at 1 p.m. Friday in the Davao City Private Schools Athletic Association (DC-Prisaa) Meet basketball competition at the UM Matina Gym.

DC-Prisaa executive director Joaquin "Boy" Sarabia said this is a crucial game for both teams where a win is important to earn a semifinals berth set on Saturday.

He said a win by the Pocholo Elegino-coached Ateneo will eliminate Rizal Memorial Colleges (RMC) Bulldogs but a victory by the Wildcats will remove the Blue Knights from the crossover semis.

"RMC, UM, and Ateneo are in triple tie. That's why the match tomorrow (Friday) is a must win game for Ateneo and UM," he said during the special edition of the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at Room F513 of the Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Jacinto campus. (MLSA)

COACHES Jack Tumayan (basketball) and Norman Fegidero, Jr. (football) both of the West Negros University have submitted their final lineups for the 2008 National PRISAA (Private Schools and Athletics Association) Meet to the technical committee last Tuesday during a meeting of coaches for the national meet held at Bob's North Drive.

ZAMBOANGGA CITY, Philippines — After a long 16-hour boat trip, the Central Visayas Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) arrived here on Monday with only one thing in mind — reclaim lost glory.

The battle is on for the PRISAA-7 athletes as the 2008 National PRISAA Meet formally opens on Tuesday in this place also known as Asia’s Latin City.

“We have high hopes in this event. We have the athletes that could deliver the goods for us,” PRISAA-7 secretariat Bernard Ricablanca told Cebu Daily News (CDN) in a phone interview.

Ricablanca is still in Manila and will arrive here on Wednesday.

PRISAA-7 president Father Vic Uy was set to arrive here late afternoon on Monday.

Climate concerns

Officer-in-charge Ryan Aznar accompanied the athletes and officials during the 16-hour boat trip.

“Hopefully, we can surpass the third place finish that we had last year. The athletes are ready and our only concern is whether they can adjust with the hot climate here,” said Aznar.

“Our athletes are used to playing in covered courts but as what we have heard, most of the games here will be played in open courts,” said Aznar, the athletic director of Southwestern University (SWU).

For the past two years, PRISAA-7 could only come up with a third place finish
Iloilo is the defending champion and has actually won the meet’s last three crowns.

PRISAA-7’s lone championship came in the meet’s 2000 edition, where Cebu City was the host.

That meet was marred by food poisoning that hit some members of PRISAA-7’s technical committee and some athletes from Region 9.

Zamboanga City is hosting the event for the third time with the first taking place in 1994 and the last in 2005.

According to the Ricablanca, PRISAA-7 wound up fifth in 2005.

According to Aznar, PRISAA-7 is composed of 291 athletes and officials and not 360 as reported by another paper.

Most of the PRISAA-7 athletes are from Bohol, Dumaguete and Cebu.

“We have three athletes from Dumaguete and close to 30 athletes are from Bohol,” said Aznar.

“We are expecting to get the bulk of our medals in the athletics, swimming and taekwondo,” said Aznar. “We are also banking on our basketball team to win a gold.”

The basketball team, which is the defending champion, is mainly composed of cagers from the University of San Carlos (USC).

Private Schools Athletic Association-VII, composed mostly of Cebu-based athletes, starts its bid for supremacy today in the 2008 PRISAA National Games at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex in Zamboanga City.

The region’s cagers immediately start their title defense in basketball against Region IV-A at 8:30 am.

PRISAA-VII, represented mainly by players from the University of San Carlos with reinforcements from the University of San Jose-Recoletos, is bracketed alongside regions 1, 2, 4, 5 and host Zamboanga.

At 9:30m, the Central Visayas cagebelles will take on host Zamboanga. The USC Wariorettes hope to grab the gold the University of Cebu (UC) Lady Webmasters missed in last year’s edition of the annual athletic meet.

On the other hand, Region 7’s table tennis squad will battle first Region V.

The schedules of other sporting events are still being finalized by the organizers as of this writing and will be made available only after the opening ceremonies late yesterday afternoon.

The Region 7 men’s volleyball squad is bracketed with regions 6, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

Aside from the ball games, competition in athletics, swimming, badminton, chess, and karatedo are also set to commence today.

Last year, PRISAA-VII settled for third place overall in the week-long sports conclave with 43 gold, 67 silver, and 50 bronze medals. — Caecent No-ot Magsumbol

Cebu’s Angelica Lado produced the first medal of Central Visayas by winning bronze in women’s shot put at the start of the 2008 Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) National Games yesterday at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex in Zamboanga City.

Lado, a varsity thrower from the University of San Jose-Recoletos, however, failed to duplicate her winning formula last year where she basked in the glow of a golden finish.

At the tracks, Cebu’s road running king Mendel Lopez could only go as far as sixth place in the 1,500 meter run. But such placing was good enough as he is not a middle-distance runner.

Two other PRISAA-VII bets in athletics, Anthony Santillan and George Pinanonang, gained entry to the final heat in their respective events. Santillan ranked No.1 in his heat in the century dash, while Pinanonang finished second in the 200m run.

Hostilities in swimming, the other medal-rich sporting event, will kick off today.

On other hand, PRISAA-VII’s men’s basketball and volleyball squads, both powered by the University of San Carlos, posted convincing victories in their first assignments.

The Central Visayas spikers, behind the deadly quartet of USC’s Roderick Arenasa, USJ-R’s Ariel Carumba and Louijie Tipgos, and USPF’s James Rivera, blasted host Zamboanga in three sets, 25-11,25-19, 25-12.

Their women’s counterpart was equally impressive in its 25-19, 25-9, 25-12 demolition of Western Visayas (Region 8).

In basketball, the Carolinians, with reinforcements from USJ-R and Southwestern University, opened their title retention bid with a 71-59 thrashing of* Region IV-A.

After a tentative start, PRISAA-VII pulled away in the second period to close the first half with an eight-point advantage, 53-45. The Cebuano cagers held on to that lead until the final buzzer.

The scores

Region VII (71) - Litorja 12, Padillo 10, Llanto 9, Malinao 9, Cortez 8, Gianchand 7, Ponce 7, Bautista 3, Igao 3, Joven 2, Hermosa 1

Region IV-A (59) - Perio 15, Dedac 10, Aquino 10, Amandy 10, Aquino 6, Gicana 5, Panganiban 3.

cagers title chances
LADY SPIKERS, BOOTERS POST HUGE VICTORIES (http://www.visayandailystar.com/2008/April/10/sportnews1.htm)
ZAMBOANGA CITY – A Western Visayas quintet packed with height and heft but wanting in bravado yielded its first two games yesterday, dimming its chances of making the semifinals of the National Private Schools Athletic Association Meet here.

Bannered by West Negros University, the region six squad's pride took a big hit when it blew a 21-point lead at halftime and lost 80-74 in overtime to Davao at the Golden Boys Covered Court yesterday morning.

Five hours later, the WV cagers, second placers last year, suffered a 69-67 loss to Cotabato, represented by Holy Trinity of General Santos City, in a defeat that could put them out of contention for the title.

Their only hope is for Davao and Cotabato to drop at least two matches, while they sweep their remaining games to at least gain a tiebreak for the top two spots in their group.

Except for the debacle in basketball, the Western Visayas campaign in ballgames was mostly trouble-free on day one of the 38th edition of the meet.

The men's football squad produced the most comprehensive win of the day – a 10-1 drubbing of Cotabato – at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex pitch.

John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University's Paolo Suner came up with a hat-trick, while Jaylor Soriano, Jaime Poderoso, Mark Ferrer, Peter Sobrido Jeffrey Villarina, Gino Palomo and Miguel Gonzales scored a goal each in the rout.

Western Visayas' campaign in women's volleyball also got off to a promising start as the University of St. La Salle Lady Stingers pulled off a 25-9, 25-9, 25-19 triumph over Region 12.

Sepak takraw action saw Region 6 beating CARAGA, 3-0, while the region six women's basketball team dumped Region 3, 86-26. In softball, Western Visayas overcame Northern Mindanao, 7-4.

The Western Visayas men's tennis squad pulled off a 2-1 win over Region 12 with former age-group standout Gerard Bergavera delivering the decisive win against Daniel Erijo, 8-4, in the reverse singles match.

Mentored by the multi-titled George Jimenez of UNO-R, the WV men's table tennis squad zoomed to the top of its group by scalping Region 12, 2-0, Region 11, 2-1 and Region 1, 2-0.

The women's squad of coach Vivica Ramos also stayed unbeaten, pulling off similar 2-0 victories over Bicol and Region 2.

Also unblemished are the men and women's chess teams, which took a maximum four points over their first round opponents yesterday at the Pilar College Gym.

The men and women's badminton team, which has players from Riverside College, also boosted their title bids with opening-day wins.

The WV men's squad beat Central Visayas, while the women's squad posted two wins at the expense of Region VII and CARAGA.*CPT

PRISAA-UCAAP '09 caging opens July 24
Posted on July 19, 2009

THE much-awaited Private Schools Athletic Association-Universities Colleges Athletic Association of Pangasinan (PRISAA-UCAAP) Inter-Collegiate Basketball Championship, originally scheduled to open on July 20, will start on July 24 at the Lyceum Northwestern University (LNU) gym.

Seato Gonimil, PRISAA Region 1 treasurer, said the date for the opening of the annual tourney, also dubbed as "Mayor Al Fernandez Jr. Cup" was reset on the request of Philippine Sports Commission chairman Harry Angpin who will be the guest of honor and speaker during the opening ceremony.

Atty. Gonzalo Duque, PRISAA national chairman and LNU president, will formally open the meet.

Led by defending champion and multi-titled the UL Golden Tigers to be steered anew by Renato "Jack" Vidal, the boys of councilor Chito Samson is expected to encounter another stiff battle against last year's runner-up LNU Dukes and 2005 titlist and now Phinma-owned the University of Pangasinan Webczars.

Other squads seeing action are AIE Commerce College, Colegio de Dagupan, Pangasinan Merchant Marine Academy, Pangasinan Institute of Marine Studies and Technology, AMA Computer School, Pangasinan State University.

The team of the PanPacific University North Philippines (PUNP) in Urdaneta City, the 2008 Universities Colleges Athletic Association (UCAA) champion, was also invited but has yet to confirm its participation.

"PRISAA Pangasinan-Dagupan president Art Tangco invited the eastern Pangasinan champion PUNP squad to the league and to make it more competitive," Gonimil said. —JAG, Jr.
