Torres, Jarata score PPS Urdaneta double


Charles Torres and Marielle Jarata carved out a pair of victories each in varying fashions and clinched the MVP honors in the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala Urdaneta age group tennis tournament at the Urdaneta Tennis Courts and Pozorrubio Tennis Club in Pangasinan recently.

The second ranked Torres upended top seed Exequiel Jucutan, 7-5, 7-5, to snare the boys’ 16-and-under crown then the Calasiao bet survived No. 4 Eric Bajet, 6-7(5), 6-1, 10-6, in the 18-U finals of the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop headed by president/CEO Bobby Castro and presented by Dunlop, the official ball.

Jarata, in contrast, stamped her class in the girls’ 12-U section, crushing Jumia Egipto, 6-1, 6-1, then the Agoo, La Union ace took the 14-U plum with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over No. 1 Tristen Kitong in the event sanctioned by the Unified Tennis Philippines, made up of PPS-PEPP, Cebuana Lhuillier, Wilson, Toby’s, Dunlop, Slazenger and B-Meg.

Reversals also marred the other finals in the tournament backed by Asiatraders Corp. with No. 4 Achaia Cabahug from Urdaneta foiling second seed Angelyn Atos, 7-5, 7-5, in the girls’ 16-U finals then the rising Urdaneta star whipped top seed Gabrielle Abarquez, 6-0, 6-0, to match Torres and Jarata’s feats.
