Ilongga runner is fastest girl
athlete, 2 golds for WV in boys’ table tennis


She used to rule the 400m run competition during her elementary days but yesterday, Janet Bedico of Iloilo crowned herself as the fastest girl athlete in the 2009 Palarong Pambansa after capturing the gold in secondary girls’ 100m dash in 13.15 seconds.

Four years ago, Bedico made a name for herself when she registered a hometown victory for Western Visayas, taking the gold in elementary girls’ 400m during the 2005 national Palaro held in Iloilo City.

Sharing the athletics’ limelight with her yesterday was teammate Josie Malacad from Carles, Iloilo who won the gold in secondary girls’ 400m hurdles, while Negrense Erma Rose Gamao settled for silver in elementary girls’ 100m.

Protest, rains
disrupt Palaro games

Protest tarnished the rains-soaked Palarong Pambansa yesterday when two runners from Southern Tagalog-Calabarzon allegedly elbowed a runner from Southern Tagalog-Mimaropa thrice in the last 100 meters of the secondary boys’ 800m run event.

The athletics tournament officials held the result of the controversial event after new Palaro record holder Marvin Guarte claimed that Salvador Guarin Jr. and teammate Don-Don Aguado shoved, costing the native of Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro of the gold medal.

SJI- A solidifies
Batang PBA bid


Young basketeers from St. John’s Institute are strengthening their bid for the Batang PBA Bacolod crown, with the SJI Team A giving its sister team SJI-B a sound thrashing, 66-46, despite an outstanding performance from John Dustin Chua yesterday at the West Negros University gym.

The Arvin Gustilo-mentored SJI-A survived an explosive first quarter play of Chua, who scored all SJI-B’s 12 points in the first 10 minutes of the game.

In answer to Chua’s all-around game, Gustilo managed to tap six points from Ian Japson and two points each from Jason Kho and Timothy Montinola to stay close 10-12 going into the second quarter.
