HOMETOWN bet John Emmanuel Estorpe ripped John Otico, 4-2, 4-0, to clinch the boys 18-under title over the weekend in the Philta-Palawan Pawnshop regional age-group championships presented by Babolat at Isulan Capitol Tennis Club in Sultan Kudarat.
Isulan junior netters Caryn Bless Guarde and Mark Alfred Directo also ousted their foes to rule their divisions.
Guarde downed Kate del Socorro, 4-2, 4-0, to top the girls 12-under, while Directo routed Eric Comendador, 4-1, 4-0 for the boys 10-under unisex title.
“The whole province of Sultan Kudarat wants to thank Philta, Palawan Pawnshop and Babolat for this project which is a big help to our young players who didn’t have to go far to play in top-level tournaments,” said Gov. Teng Mangudadatu. Marc Anthony Reyes
