Dagmil's Protege takes two golds
Below is a summary of the First Day of Athletics. The outstanding performance came from local favorite Joselito Hapitan, 15 of South Cotobato ( who easily dispatched his rivals in the Boys 100 and 400 dash picking up two golds. Hapitan whose 5'5 his mentors include  none other than Olympian Henry Dagmil, whose hometown is Koronadal. Hapitan burst out of the blocks and in a smooth yet explosive running form remniscent of National Junior Record Holder Daniel Noval to win the 100m in 11.4 (11.35 hand timed), Earl Limapag of Ilagan took silver in 11.5, and Gregory Ivan Briones of Sarangani was third in 12.0.
I want to break 11 seconds by the time of Palaro. Coach Dagmil has really helped me a lot with my running form.
said Hapitan.

Hapitan also won the 400m Dash in 52.7, his team mate Kenneth Corpuz took second in 54.2, and Paul Rayon another local from Koronadal City took bronze in 55.7 making it a complete sweep for Cotobato on the podium. Hapitan was 3 strides clear of Corpuz with 100 meters to go but he changed gear and surged even further away down the home straight.


Ashley Azusada also added two golds for Zamboanga City in the girls she won the 100m in a time of 13.2, Azusada is a regular competitor at PNG and other PSC events. General Santos City Fredielyn Galorpot and Tresha Mae Arevalo took silver and bronze both in the identical time of 13.7. Azusada also won the girls Long Jump in 4.27m. Jean Galing of Zamboanga City won the 400 in 1.03.6.

For Statisticians

Its also interesting to note that the track oval at Koronadal has markings for the 100 Meters and can be ran on both sides of the track. However the markings for the relays and Hurdles were configured around the 200 meters, but should be acceptable as there is a 100m finish line on the back straight which was used to correctly configure the distances.
