View Full Version : Knights & Squires in Other NCAA Sports

01-07-2014, 07:35 AM
So far, the Squires have notched up championships in table tennis and chess while the Knights have not won any of the first-semester championships.

Senior champions so far have been SBC (men's basketball, men's and women's swimming, men's and women's table tennis, men's and women's taekwondo), St. Benilde (men's and women's badminton), and SSCR (chess).

In juniors' play, aside from Letran, champions so far have been San Beda (basketball), SSCR (taekwondo), and LSGH (swimming and badminton).

Ongoing is the volleyball tournament, but our teams (men's, women's and boys) are not expected to make it to the championship rounds. The women's team is winless thus far, while the men's and the boys' teams are in the lower half of the mix.

Hopefully, we will have better showings in lawn tennis and track & field.

In NCAA chess: Good news for the Squires, not so good news for the Knights:

from http://season90.ncaa.org.ph/lyceum-edges-letran-keeps-lead-in-ncaa-chess/

Philstar.com – MANILA, Philippines – Jonathan Jota and John Jasper Laxamana hurdled their foes on boards three and four as Lyceum trounced Letran, 3-1, to remain on top after the first round of the 90th NCAA seniors chess competition at the Athlete’s Dining Hall of the Rizal Memorial Complex.

Jan Francis Mirano and Prince Mark Aquino drew with Melwyn Kenneth Baltazar and Paul Christian Barroga on top boards to clinch the win for the Pirates, who hiked their total to 29 points or an impressive three points ahead of the pack headed by the St. Benilde chessers.

La Salle-Greenhills, for its part, edged San Beda, 2.5-1.5, to emerge the best juniors team after the first round by barely edging a resurgent, International Master Paolo Bersamina-led Letran side by a mere half a point.

John Marvin Miciano and Julius Gonzales delivered the wins for the Greenies on second and third boards while Francis Roi Parro split the point with Justine Joric Hernandez on fourth board to pull off the escape win that hiked their total to 29 points.

Brent Lennard Alanan provided the lone victory by the Cubs on Board One.

Half a point behind were the Squires, who blasted the Junior Pirates, 3-1, on wins by Bersamina, Eric Robert Yap and Alexis Anne Osena on boards one to three.

Letran’s lone loss came on fourth board after Manolo Angelo Martinez fell to Lyceum’s Charles Vincent Galpo.

It was the 16-year-old’s fourth straight victory since returning two weeks ago from his memorable tour of duty with the Philippine chess team that participated in the 41st World Chess Olympiad in Tromso, Norway last month.

First title for the Knights this season is in men's badminton. BTW, this is also our first title ever in badminton. Squires, on the other hand, emerged as champion in Jrs. Chess. Arriba!

Not really in the NCAA, but an achievement nonetheless. Congratulations, Paulo Bersamina!

Jomar SOLLANO picked #2 in the Pba D'League.

Nice decision by Jong not to enter the Pros this year. Pahinog muna ng konti. Maybe next season.

Arriba Sollano!

He'll be together in the Tanduay team with Mark Cruz. I really feel for Cruz. He wasn't given much of a chance at Star, then was traded off to Phoenix, which I think did not sign him. Hopefully, he will be able to resuscitate his career at Tanduay and get another crack at the pros.

Meanwhile, I'm sure Sollano will do very well. He could be a potential PBA first-rounder next year.

Sana nga.

But the truth of the matter is the sidelines of the PBA are littered with the carcasses of small men trying to make it in a big man's game. Boyet Bautista, Ronjay Enrile, Escobal, etc. were outstanding point guards in NCAA champion teams but never got the breaks in a tall man's league because they were vertically challenged. It's a tall man's league where big men already way way past their prime (and should be put to pasture in preparation for the glue factory, sorry for the analogy) are still raking in the money. LA Revilla is doing well but that's because he's in a door mat team. I doubt he'll get playing time if he was in a top tiered team.

My advice to the Antman is for him to finish his studies and get that college degree, like he promised CAA after the 17th Crown. Kevin Alas, Belorio, Racal, Gabriel, etc. have their education to fall back on after the ball careers are over.

^Tama ka. He should finish his degree. He can't hope to stay a ball player forever. Ngayon pa lang, hirap na.

Still, I can't help but think that breaks are all that are needed for Cruz to have a better pro career. I mean, yeah -- players like Enrile, Bautista, and Escobal fell by the wayside. However, Caram is still there, as well as Sumang. Di hamak naman sigurong mas magaling si Cruz kaysa kay Caram.
