Repaja, Bandala lead tennis champions


Angel Repaja shared the spotlight with young Pete Bandala in the PPS-PEPP Liloy national age-group tennis at the Liloy Tennis Club in Zamboanga del Norte last Tuesday.

Repaja ruled the girls’ 16-and-under crown at the expense of doubles partner Yvonne Cuevas, 6-3, 6-1, and won the 18-U title by whipping top seed Jane Echon, 6-0, 6-2, in the semis and No. 2 Faith Regencia, 6-4, 6-1, in the final of the Group 2 tournament presented by Dunlop.

Bandala, on the other hand, continued to sizzle in 10-unisex category of the circuit put up by Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala, holding off doubles teammate Rose Mesiona, 5-3, 4-1, to add the crown to his growing list of victories.

Bandala from Dipolog and Mesiona from Sindangan also ran away with the doubles plum, beating Rasta Baje and Kevin Gallenero, 8-3.

Other singles winners were Dipolog’s Andrei Tan (boys’ 12-U), local bet Angelo Cadavedo (boys’ 14-U), Dumingag’s Aldree Pan (boys’ 16-U), Liloy’s Rastyley Baje (boys’ 18-U), Mesiona (12-U) and Cuevas (14-U).
