/ 05:27 AM August 24, 2018

Justine Maneja came away with three crowns while Daniel Estanislao III captured two titles as they dominated the Palawan Pawnshop-PEPP Pulilan Youth-Bulacan national age-group tennis tournament at Pulilan Tennis Club outdoor on Tuesday.

The 14-year-old Maneja scored back-to-back 1-0 (ret.) wins in her age group over top seed Julia Ignacio and against Gaby Zoleta in the girls’ 16-U finals before frustrating Mica Emana, 7-5, 6-4, in a duel of unranked bets in the premier 18-U division of the Group 2 tournament.

The second seeded Estanislao, on the other hand, proved too tough for top seed Jester Ocio, scoring a 6-0, 6-1 triumph to clinch the boys’ 16-U diadem. After that, the Letran College mainstay from Caloocan City took the 18-U plum with a 6-3, 4-0 (ret.) victory over Miguel Vicencio.

“We would like to thank the PPS-PEPP for this event and its continued support for our junior sports development program,” said Pulilan Mayor Ma. Rosario Ochoa-Montejo.
