    FEU Milestones


    MANILA -- Marestella Torres became the first Filipino in 22 years to win a gold medal in the Asian Athletics Championships when she ruled the women’s long jump event at the Guangdong Olympic Stadium in Guangzhou, China Tuesday.

    Torres, the reigning SEA Games champion, leapt to 6.51 meters, beating a strong field of rivals, which included world No. 9 Chen Ya Ling of China, who settled for second with 6.28 meters.

    Japanese Masumi Sachiko took the bronze at 6.28m.

    “This is my season’s best although this is just a warm-up for the Southeast Asian Games in Laos next month,” said Torres.

    Torres had earlier won the bronze medal at the 2002 Asian Championships, finished fourth at the 2002 Asian Championships and won the 2005 Asian Championships title. She also competed in the 2005 World Championships but failed to reach the final.

    Torres’ win was a big boost for RP athletics, which last won in this level of competition in 1987 when former Asian sprint queen Lydia de Vega-Mercado swept the sprint events in the 13th edition of the annual event in Singapore.

    “I thank Marestella for her feat which, once again, proved that we can look forward to better things in Laos,” said athletics chief Go Teng Kok.

    So impressive was Torres’ performance that the Chinese coach conceded the gold after the Filipino’s third jump.

    “Your athlete is very, very good. Take good care of her. She is a world-class athlete. She has a strong potential for the next Olympics,” said athletics coach Joseph Sy, quoting the Chinese coach.

    (Note: Lydia De Vega-Mercado also played & studied at FEU, while Torres also from FEU is in the athletics team in early 2000)

    UST and FEU win two titles each

    UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas (UST) and Far Eastern University (FEU) bagged two championships each—in taekwondo and beach volleyball—and all of a sudden, the race for the general championship is now on in UAAP Season 74.
    UST won the men’s title and FEU bagged the women’s crown in taekwondo on Saturday at the Arena in San Juan.
    On Sunday, the Tamaraws annexed the men’s plum and the Tigresses the women’s tiara in beach volleyball at the University of the East (UE)-Caloocan sand court.
    UST has won 38 general championship trophies since an overall title was awarded in Season 10 of the 74-year-old league, while FEU is a far second with 16.
    And when attention was on the hotly-contested Cheerdance Competition which University of the Philippines (UP) won and on the Adamson University-FEU knockout match both at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, action in taekwondo and beach volleyball turned from fierce to explosive.
    The Tigers snatched their 10th men’s taekwondo crown via a 5-0 sweep of Season 74 which they capped with a 5-2 victory over De La Salle last Saturday. De La Salle, the Season 73 champions, placed second on a 4-1 card.
    “I’m delighted to win the men’s title again. We strived hard to get all the titles every year, that’s our ultimate goal,” said long-time Tigers coach Dindo Simpao.
    UST also kick-started its bid for the juniors’ general championship when its Tiger Cubs won for the third straight yeart with a clean 4-0 record. UST also topped the demonstration event poomsae competitions.
    The Lady Tamaraws, on the other hand, had to walk the tightrope. They wound up tied on top with the Lady Archers on 4-3 records, but emerged champions by virtue of FEU’s 4-2 victory over De La Salle early in the eliminations.
    FEU’s only other loss in the women’s contest this season was 2-5 to 11-time champion UST, which fell to its worst finish at fourth since taekwondo was played in the league in 1994.
    Featherweight Dane Pio de Roda of UST and middle heavyweight Marifi Gadit of FEU were declared Most Valuable Players.
    The gold medal winners for Season 74 were De La Salle’s RJay del Rosario (pinweight) and UST’s Paul Romero (bantamweight), Christian Al dela Cruz (lightweight), Ernest John Mendoza (welterweight) De Roda (featherweight) and Marlon Avenido (middle/heavyweight).
    The women’s gold medallists were UE’s Christine Benedictos (pinweight), De La Salle’s Alyssa Bonifacio, Jyra Lizardo (lightweight) and Inna Bonifacio (featherweight), FEU’s Crizabelle Vargas (bantamweight) and Karla Jane Alava (welterweight) and UST’s Jane Narra (middle heavyweight).
    The order of finish in Season 74 taekwondo was UST, De La Salle, FEU, UP, Ateneo and UE in the men’s and FEU, De La Salle, UP, UST, UE and Ateneo in the women’s.

    Tigresses, Tamaraws top beach volleyball, too

    MARU BANATICLA bucked cramps and together with Judy Caballejo scored a 21-19, 21-16 UST victory over Ateneo’s Alyssa Valdez and Bea Tan for the Tigresses first women's beach volley championship.
    “This win was made possible with the help of God. Hindi ako nawalan ng loob sa kabila ng nangyari kay Maru (Banaticla),” said Caballejo, the season MVP.
    The Lady Eagles forced the “winner-take-all” Game 3 after they levelled the race-to-two series, 21-19, 21-15, Game 2.
    FEU’s Arvin Avila and Karl de la Calzada prevented a bigger UST celebration when they beat Tigers Jayson Ramos and Mark Gil Alfafara, 21-14, 21-17, for the Tamaraws’ second-straight men’s crown.
    “Sobrang saya, nagbunga lahat ng pinaghirapan namin sa ensayo. Mahirap silang bantayan dahil malalaki pero bumawi kami sa pamamagitan ng depensa,” said the Zamboanga pride and MVP Avila.
    Cruz emerged as the women’s Rookie of the Year, Ateneo’s Israel Marasigan was the men’s top newcomer.
    Season 73 champion Adamson University wound up third after Pau Soriano and Sheila Pineda beat De La Salle’s Michelle Gumabao and Camille Cruz, 21-17, 21-11.
    The men’s order of finish was FEU, UST, Adamson, UP, De la Salle, UE, National University (NU) and Ateneo, while in the women’s contest, it was UST, Ateneo, Adamson, De La Salle, FEU, UE, UP and NU.

    UAAP Season 74 Wars

    MANILA, Philippines—Ateneo completed its phenomenal climb with a championship over a National University side also vying for a historic romp in the UAAP badminton tournament Tuesday.

    The Blue Eagles, who only finished fourth at the end of the eliminations, dominated the Bulldogs, 3-1, behind the strong play of national team ace Toby Gadi in the finals at the Rizal Memorial Badminton Hall.

    “We went through a difficult route this year and were the underdogs,” said Gadi, who also copped the Most Valuable Player award. “I’m glad that all our hard work paid off.”

    The Blue Eagles, who overcame the twice-to-beat edge of No. 1 squad La Salle in the semifinals, also picked up their first men’s crown in seven years and third overall.

    Gadi triumphed in the second singles, 24-22, 19-21, 21-17, over fellow national player Philip Jofer Escueta of the Bulldogs, who were seeking to end a 25-year title drought.

    Ateneo’s Pawee Natividad downed Aris delos Santos, 21-17, 10-21, 21-12, in the other singles match, before the pair of Gadi and Natividad wrapped it up with a second doubles win, 21-18, 21-18, over Delos Santos and Sonny Boy Montilla.

    “Toby is a true winner. He had cramps, but he wanted it more,” said Ateneo mentor Kennie Asuncion, the country’s former No.1 player who also won Coach of the Year.

    Other awardees were Rookie of the Year Gerald Sibayan and Most Improved Player JC Clarito of La Salle.

    Baby Tams, Bullpups seal title duel

    In juniors basketball, top-ranked Far Eastern University and National University arranged a best-of-three title showdown after downing separate semifinal opponents Tuesday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

    Lady Tams crush Lady Archers

    FEU also nailed the last Finals berth in women’s play by crushing La Salle, 66-44, in another winner-take-all semifinal earlier.

    The No. 1 Lady Tamaraws will go up against defending champion Adamson in a best-of-three title series this Saturday, right before the juniors title match.

    Raiza Palmera fired 12 points on top of six boards and eight assists to power the Lady Tamaraws, who rebounded four days after absorbing a 54-57 upset loss against the Lady Archers in the semifinal opener.

    The second-seeded Lady Falcons disposed University of Santo Tomas in one game, 53-45, in their own Final Four encounter.

    FEU similarly averted an upset in the juniors tournament with Joshua Aguilon and Jerie Pingoy combining for 39 points in the Baby Tams’ 63-56 triumph over the fourth-ranked Blue Eaglets.

    The Baby Tams, who also ended the Eaglets’ bid for a fourth straight title, dominated the second half from an early 8-19 deficit.

    NU overcame No. 2 De La Salle Zobel’s twice-to-beat edge with a 49-46 victory.

    All three FEU basketball teams will be disputing championships in their respective divisions.

    When was the last time FEU won all three titles, or at least were in all three Finals?

  10. #10
    Dark Knight or LakazTama, was Vic Pablo on both the 1991 and 1992 title teams of FEU?

    Kasi ang naalala ko lang same draft class sila ni Johnny A in 1993, pero I can't recall if Pablo was still in FEU in 1992.
