Careline-RP joins Asean school tilt


CARELINE-PILIPINAS hopes to transform the experience it gained in the recent Fiba-Asia Under-18 Women’s Championsh­ip into success when it competes in the 2nd Asean School Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from July 12 to 20.

“We learned valuable lessons during our Fiba-Asia stint in Thailand, so I’m confident of putting up a decent finish this time,” said RP coach Patrick Aquino. “Unlike in the Fiba- Asia where we competed against taller and heftier rivals, the Asean School Games feature a balanced competitio­n, so we have a good chance.”

In the Fiba-Asia tournament, the Nationals failed to advance to the next level despite posting a 3-2 record in their group.

The participat­ion of CarelinePi­lipinas in the annual event has the blessings of Department of Education Secretary Armin Luistro, Un- dersecreta­ry Ramos Bacani and Feliciano Toledo, consultant for school sports.

Danica Jose, Tere Aseron and Kitkat Nitorreda will spearhead the Nationals along with Camille Claro, Ginny Pioquinto, Elrica Castro, Cheskie Tantoco, Trisha Dy, Alyanna Ong, Steph Cua, and MaanWong.

Aquino will be assisted by former RP Youth team member Paul Du and Julie Amos with Silliman Sy and Johnson Martines as team managers.
