Andaya, Borja rule IronKids
Zedrick James Borja held off Tyrone Macalos to capture the boys’ crown on Saturday while Trixie Andaya dominated the girls’ side in the premier division of the Alaska Fortified IronKids at the Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite.
Borja clocked 15 minutes and 31 seconds to clinch top honors in the 13-14 bracket as he rebounded mightily from his third place effort in the swim-run event in Davao last March.
Macalos turned in a 15:58 clocking for second while Dash Ramirez finished third in 16:10.
Andaya, on the other hand, dished out top form to overpower the field in her side of the centerpiece event.
She timed 18:12, beating Princess Patilan, who timed 19:29, with Bernadette Cabatian clocking 20:27 for third.
Sharing the podium honors were Marc Dula (boys’ 11-12), Aubrey Tom (girls’ 11-12), Darell Bada (boys’ 9-10, and Jiana De Asis (girls’ 9-10). Dula timed 12:13 to edge Jessly Roman (12:33) and Kristoff David (12:35); Tom clocked 11:57 to beat Kira Ellis (12:19) and Francesca Barretto (13:32).
Bada turned in a 9:37 clocking to topple Rafael Ubiadas (10:16) and Rylee Marasigan (10:23); and De Asis timed 9:19 to nip Alyssa Cabatian (9:20) and Zabelle Eugenio (9:49).
Ethan Kyle ruled the 6-8 group in 7:55, nipping Jsoe Dimayuga and Cyler Alcantara, who both clocked 7:57 while Samantha Hodges took the girls plum in 8:11, beating Cathlene Yumang (8:42) and Ysabel Dalluay (9:14).
Isabelle Calolot and Christian Guido of Roas Autophile topped the relay 6-10 bracket in 6:08, edging Corrine Cruz and Eugenio of Team Rizal Alpha Dragons, who timed 6:10.
