In the Philippines NCAA 2017 Season 92, 13 Records Fell.
4 Records in the Men’s. And 9 in the Boys.
First off Anfernee Lopena of CSB regained his record in the Mens 100m. Lopena previously held the mark of 10.73 (+1.3 m/s) from 2014, which was broken in 2016.
Jomar Udtohan ran 10.66 (+0.4 m/s) in the heats of 2016. However his time in 2016 final of 10.59 (+2.4 m/s) cannot be ratified as it is over the allowable limit for records of (+2.0 m/s), meaning too much wind assistance in the race.
Therefore Lopena time in 2017 in the heats of 10.65 (+0.3 m/s) in the heats is the new NCAA Record.
Francis Medina continued to improve his NCAA Record in the 400 Hurdles. Originally it belonged to his school mate Philip Silloco (Perpetual) who had ran 54.86 in 2012. Medina progression was 54.40 in 2014, 53.47 in 2015, 53.26 in 2016, and in 2017 he clocked 52.98.
Julian Reem Fuentes improved his own meet record of 7.42m, by leaping 7.59m (+1.3 m/s) it was an impressive event with the top five all leaping over 7.00m.
And in Shotput Ron Mols Andawa heaved a massive 14.51m to shatter the record of his JRU team mate Albert Mantua (13.90m).
Udtohan, Lopena, Medina and Fuentes are all members of the national team
Even more impressive was Edwin Giron Jr. from Zamboanga City now running for EAC who took nearly 3 secs off the 800m boys record with a time of 1.56.83. Giron is the Batang Pinoy champion in the 800 and 1500.
Arellano’s Johndee Vinzon shattered the record of his team mate Immuel Camino clocking 9.09.32 in the boys 3000m.
Lorenz Sediarn (San Sebastian) took 1.5 secs off the 400 Hurdles in the heats with a run of 56.42.
More success came for Emilio Aguinaldo College who secured the Boys overall title by breaking the records in the 4×100 and 4×400 boys. Tyrone Flores of EAC also added 2m onto the discus record.
