Arriana Maglana crushed doubles partner Lorraine Alegria twice while Vancidrik Rosalinda registered a victory and a runner-up trophy Sunday in the PPS-PEPP Mayor Angelito Cabalquinto national championships at the Maragusan Municipal courts in Davao de Oro.

Maglana pulled through in a tight first-set in 12-and-under finals before beating Alegria  7-6(6), 6-0 victory.

She then repeated over her fellow Maragusan native in the 14-and-U championship, 6-1, 6-0, to emerge as the lone “double” winner in the Group 2 event, the first of three tournaments lined up in Davao region.

Davao Oriental will host the next PPS-PEPP leg on 31 August to 4 September. Tagum City championships will be staged on 7-11 September in Davao del Norte.

For details, contact event organizer Bobby Mangunay at 09154046464.

The top-seeded Rosalinda, who also hails from Maragusan, claimed the boys’ 14-and-U title with a 6-3, 6-0 romp over Rodney Montenegro but unranked Ian Gayem from Davao City foiled him in the 16-and-U finals, scoring a come-from-behind 2-6, 6-4, 10-8 decision.
