Girls' team powers

The Negros Occidental secondary girls' athletics team captured six gold medals, three silvers and three bronzes yesterday to highlight province's successful return to the Western Visayas regional meet at the Iloilo Sports Complex.

Ma. Isabel Oqueriza led the surge with a double gold as she topped the 400-meter and 800-meter run while Angel Ann Pranisa claimed the gold in 100 meters, Jennifer Hudierez in 100-meter hurdles, Trexie De la Torre in long jump and Franz Gela Bintad in discus throw.

“It was a close contest. Our athletes demonstrated a strong fighting spirit,” coach AddyArca, who along with her brother Miguel Arca, mentor the athletics team.

Southwoods guns for Interclub
history in Bacolod with `4-Peat'

Manila Southwoods knows exactly what it is chasing when regular Men's Championship division action in the PAL Interclub tees off in two courses in Bacolod on March 8.

“It has never been done before, that's why the boys are so motivated,” non-playing skipper Thirdy Escano said as the Carmona-based parbusters gun for an unprecedented fourth straight triumph in the country's unofficial team golf championship.

“The players have started practising weeks before and some have even gone to Bacolod to sample the layouts,” Escano said, knowing well that Marapara and Binitin are courses that vary very much in character compared to the layouts his young squad is used to playing.

PH runner joins
North Pole race

A Filipino athlete will try to brave the cold weather of the North Pole as he joins the FWD North Pole Marathon on April 9.

Forty-year-old Louie Sangalang was introduced to the media at the Mind Museum Auditorium in Taguig on Tuesday as the first Filipino to run a full 42-km. race throughout the northernmost point of the world.

"I'm very happy and excited to represent the country kasi (because) this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me," said Sangalang, a cancer survivor who turned into sports to get his full strength back.
