WITH THE addition of two new members, a keener competition is expected when the 37th Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association (WNCAA) basketball tournament kicks off Saturday at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City.

Joining the oldest tri-level league for women in the country are Philippine Women’s University and St. Francis of Assisi College.

“The addition of PWU and St. Francis would surely bring more excitement to the league as the old members would double their efforts so as not to be upstaged by the newcomers,” said league chief operating officer Ma. Vivian Manila of St. Scholastica’s College during a press conference yesterday at the Grand Boulevard Hotel.

The league, which now has 20 competing schools in the National Capital Region, divides competition in three levels -- elementary, high school and college.

The seniors division of the basketball tournament is split into two groups.

Defending Group A champion AMA Computer University and reigning Group B titlist San Beda College Alabang will compete in the same bracket this season.

Joining them in Group A are St. Scholastica’s College, Philippine Women’s University, College of St. Benilde, Centro Escolar University and Lyceum of the Philippines.

Miriam College is expected to pace Group B, which is composed of University of Asia and the Pacific, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Siena College of Quezon City, La Consolacion College, Rizal Technological University, World Citi Colleges and St. Francis of Assisi College.

“WNCAA has already proven to be one of the best leagues in the country. We’re already the third longest running collegiate league (next to NCAA and UAAP),” said league president Ma. Angelica dela Cruz.

Bemedalled swimmer Akiko Thompson will be the keynote speaker during the season opener this Saturday. This season’s host is St. Stephen’s High School.

The two new members get going right away with Miriam College taking on St. Francis in the 3:30 p.m. curtain-raiser with St. Scholastica’s College meeting Philippine Women’s University at 5.

Solar Sports’ vice president for marketing Jude Turcuatco added that basketball and volleyball games and the cheer dancing competition will be aired on the cable channel.

WNCAA unwraps 38th season Saturday

By JOEY VILLAR
The Philippine Star

The country’s top collegiate women’s athletes take center stage when the 38th Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association season unwraps on Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium with the league introducing a new sport – dodge ball – in its calendar of events.

The addition of dodge ball was announced by host Lyceum president Roberto Laurel in Wednesday’s media launch at the Jose P. Laurel Hall located inside the campus.

The sport, which was already featured in a comedy movie with the same title, requires each team to field in six players with the score to be determined by hitting the opposing players with the ball.

This year’s theme is “Women: Conquering the Challenge of Sports,” which aims to strengthen women power not just in sports but in real life as well.

“The care for women athletes is not that high so in Lyceum we always tell our players to strive not only inside the court but also outside it so that they’ll have a career after basketball,” said Tanny Gonzales, Lyceum’s athletic director.

Others who graced the launch were league national president Vivian Manila, who bared plans of likewise including beach volleyball in the league’s future calendar of events.

“We’re looking into it,” said Manila. “But we’ll ask our Christian school members if they would accept it next year.”

Lyceum will be the team to watch, not as host but as the defending champion in basketball and volleyball competitions.

Other sports on tap are futsal, a shortened version of football or soccer, table tennis, badminton, swimming, lawn tennis, taekwondo, athletics and cheer dance competition.

LYCEUM, Rizal Technological University and San Beda College Alabang appeared ready to reprise their winning formula last season after downing separate opponents over the weekend in the 39th WNCAA senior volleyball competition at the RTU gym.

Eight-time defending champion Lyceum overcame an erratic opening set to repulse St. Francis of Assisi College, 20-25, 25-17, 25-20, 25-17.

Lyceum needed three games to get it done but get it done they did, wrapping up the women's basketball title with a 51-44 Game 3 victory over St Benilde. St Benilde went up 8-4 early on behind the shooting of swingman Mae Dela Torre and the hustle of center Joy Sia. But Lyceum quickly regrouped to seize the lead 10-8 on the transition game of Ning Cabinbin and the rebounding of national team power forward April Lualhati.

In the second period the Lady Pirates and the Lady Blazers engaged in a battle of futility as neither side scored for almost six minutes. They were getting good looks and a lot of open opportunities but the ball just wouldn't fall in, always rolling out or winding up out of bounds on a couple of funky bounces.

Lyceum went on a mini-run to open up the game late in the third period though as Lualhati and Cabinbin anchored a tighter 2-2-1 full court press that saw St Benilde struggling to get the ball across the time line. The Lady Pirate guards made off with a couple of transition layups to give the maroon and white side some separation.

In the payoff fourth period the Lady Blazers mounted as furious comeback behind Dela Torre, guard Rica Reyes and center Julie Anne Paras, cutting down the Lyceum lead to only 49-46. But Cabinbin sank some pressure freethrows and Lualhati asserted greater control off the defensive glass to keep the Lady Pirates in control.
