Nationals lift La Salle-Zobel past Ateneo
La Salle Zobel celebrated the return of their top players from national team duty to pull away from their rivals in the Juniors and Aspirants 1 Division in the ICTSI-JGFP National Inter-School golf championships in various courses recently.
Aniceto Mandanas fired 58 points, Nikolo Gatmaytan carded 55 and Kristoffer Arevalo added 54 as La Salle Zobel bloated its lead to 45 points with a 462 total in Juniors play.
Carl Corpus and Aidric Chan combined for 103 points for Ateneo but failed to get enough scoring support to stop La Salle Zobel from pulling farther away in the event backed chiefly by the International Container Terminal Services Inc. Foundation.
Ira Alido and Jolo Magcalayo padded La Salle Zobel’s lead to 10 in Aspirants 1after scoring 52 and 46, respectively.
DLSZ is now at 276 against the 266 of Ateneo 1 which was at 266 after getting 50 from Riggs Illescas and 41 from Maio Castañeda.
Xavier 1, behind Sean Young and Jet Ang, remained far ahead in the Aspirants 2 category of the tourney also sponsored by the Philippine Golf Foundation, Philippine Airlines, Cleantech, Cleanpak and Inquirer Golf.
Ang had 36 and Young made 25 to jack up Xavier’s total to 269, leaving behind Ateneo which was at 228.
Seeing action Sunday are the juniors at Eastridge, the Seniors at Ayala Greenfield and Aspirants 1 at Aguinaldo.
