learners and facilitators alike as it gave them the chance to break free from their academic

Held a day after the learners' second quarter examination, the said event was greeted with so much
energy and enthusiasm. The elementary and secondary learners were divided into 4 teams: Yellow,
Red, Green and Blue, each with their assigned leaders.
A day before the event, the excitement started to heighten
as team leaders gathered their team mates to discuss and
practice some strategies on how to bag the awards. A great
deal of time and effort was also spent in preparation for
one of the major events, the Cheers and Yells Contest.

Sports Fest '08 was opened formally by ISA executive

director, Mr. Peter Chan. The lighting of the torch was done
by two secondary learners, John Christian Dinero and
Helinda Marie Muleta. Cheers and yells contest came first
and followed by the parlor games which were participated
with learners from Grades 1 to 3. At exactly 9 am, all the
major sports events started ranging from track and field,
relay, ball games, table tennis and chess.

The four teams tried to out match each other in order to

get a good over-all standing. The final tally showed Red
Team was the over-all champion, followed by the Blue,
Yellow and Green Teams, in that order.
Sports Fest ensures that the school does not only develop
the academic prowess of its learners but also promotes
sports as a major factor essential to their holistic
development as it promotes the values of sportsmanship.

Grace Rebollos Won Bronze in the Phil. Olympic Fest Table Tennis Match

doubles, garnering three of the seven gold medals at stake, in the 2007 Iloilo Filipino-Chinese Inter-
school Badminton Tournament held on 22 September.

Krisha Wee and Linnie Faith Basilio, both ISA high school freshmen, confidently outmatched their
much older opponents from Sun Yat Sen high School in the final games, winning the third gold
medals for ISA. Earlier that day, Mary Elizabeth Chua and Johanna Tan had defeated the pair from
Iloilo Central Commercial High School; and, Emma Rose Guanco smashed the contingent from
Ateneo de Iloilo (formerly Santa Maria Catholic School), bringing home the much coveted elementary
girl singles gold medal. The last ISAer to win another medal was a Grade 4 learner, Roy Jordan Ahhi.
He won second place in the elementary boy singles category.

Sun Yat Sen High School team won 2 gold, while Iloilo Central Commercial High School and Ateneo
de Iloilo won 1 gold each.

SYSHS stood out as the strongest team based on the total medal count, followed by ISA, ICCHS, and
AdeI in that order.

With proper training, the pair has the
potential of becoming ISA’s badminton
‘Dream Team’ in the next couple of years.

These two ‘veteran’ ISAthletes, Mary

Elizabeth and Johanna, had been winning
medals since ISA joined IloPRISAA Sports
Meet two years ago.

Emma Rose, the versatile ‘wonder girl’, has

been bringing honors to our school, not
only in the field of sports, but more so in
academic competition. Last month, Emma
won 3rd place in Panay News Writing
contest, and 3rd place in the 5th ABS-CBN
Newscasting competition.
Though freshmen Matthew and Cecil Kim
did not make it to the final rounds this
time, nobody would be surprised if they will
fight it to the top in some inter-school
games in the near future.

ISA Joins United Track and Field

girls’ team was the over-all third placer in the track and field. In badminton, both elementary boys’
and girls’ team captured the over-all second place titles.

This is the second time ISA sent sports teams since it became a full-fledged IloPRISAA member-
school in 2004. Aside from track and field and table tennis, both considered as ISA’s powerhouse,
ISAthletes made considerable progress in badminton, lawn tennis, swimming and chess this year.
Noteworthy is the ISA chess team which was organized in June this year. Its members are all
neophytes enrolled in the newly opened chess class. No wonder when somebody from the field
texted us that Anne Danielle Tay of Grade 2 won 3rd place in Board 1 (elementary girls), everybody
hardly believed it.

5th FCAAC Table Tennis Tournament ISAthletes Champion in all 4 categories

The 5th FCAAC Table Tennis Tournament sponsored by the Filipino

Chinese Amateur Athletic Confederation Iloilo Chapter was held on September 23 and 24, 2006 at
Sun Yat Sen High School Auditorium. Fifty table tennis players participated in the games: 10 from
Iloilo Central Commercial High School, 15 from Sun Yat Sen High School, 6 from Ateneo de Iloilo
(Santa Maria Catholic School) and 19 from Iloilo Scholastic Academy. The elimination rounds were
held in the afternoon of September 23 following a brief opening ceremony, and continued in the
morning of September 24.

ISAthletes performed extraordinarily well in the final rounds in the last

day of the tournament. The outstanding performance of High school ISAthletes, John Christian
Dinero (2nd Yr.) and Justin Aguirre (3rd Yr.), stunned almost everybody. They both defeated the
players of two bigger schools, ICCHS and SYSHS, after a close fight and brought home the champion
trophies in high school boys and girls categories, respectively. Earlier that afternoon, ISA elementary
players had also made it to the top in both boys and girls categories. Other ISAthletes were able to
bring home four more trophies. A player from ICCHS won first runner up in the High School boys
category; an Atenean was second runner up in High School boys category. SunYat Sen High School
players won the two first runner up in High School girls and Elementary boys categories.


The annual Iloilo Private Schools Athletic Association (ILOPRISAA) meet is an arena for students of
private school in Iloilo City to compete in the field of sports, literary and music. This year, forty six
member schools look forward to this event to prove their mettle and to give their schools in general
and their students in particular a chance to show their various talents and intelligences.

According to Mr. Oscar Co, ISA-BOT Sports Committee Chairman, this year, after a one-year
probationary period, Iloilo Scholastic Academy is joining the ILOPRISAA meet. ISA sent thirty three
athletes to compete in six major sports areas: table tennis, lawn tennis, swimming, track and field,
badminton and taekwondo. After a week-long competition, ISAers brought home 8 gold, 4 silver and
4 bronze.

4th FCAAF Cup Table Tennis

ISAers brought home 6 trophies

ISAers proved again they are not just scholars but also champions in sports. They showed this at the
4th Filipino Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation (FCAAF) Table Tennis Tournament held last
November 26 and 27 at Gaisano City.

Bona fide students from four Chinese-Filipino Schools, namely ICCHS, SYSHS, Ateneo de Iloilo and
ISA, joined in this years table tennis tournament. ISAers outshone the other players in the girls
division. Players from the three other schools divided the trophies in the boys category. Only Gian
Francis Trimañez of Grade 6 made it to the top three in the boys Elementary Level, he bagged 3rd
place. While in the girls elementary, Trixie Shane Ledesma of Grade 6 was the Champion and Jia
Fem Bolinas of Grade 4 won the 2nd place.

In the high school division, Grace Rebollos of 2nd year proved herself unchallenged by winning the
1st place and her classmate Justine Aguirre won the 2nd place. In the Womens Open, Grace Rebollos
defeated many adult players to finally emerged second.

Go! ISAth1letes
In recent years, schools scouting for mercenary players instead of developing their own talents has
become a fad. Obviously, this is contrary to the spirit of sound campus PE program. At ISA, we
subordinate sports competition to the needs of total human development. Recruiting good players
from outside sources will not raise overall campus sports level, maintaining a good sports program

"Players need to have discipline, dedication and perseverance to win in the competition." said Mr.
Serapion Garillos, ISA Sports Coordinator.

As early as the third week of this SY, all ISAers had undergone try-outs to vie for the limited slots in
their chosen sport events. Few qualified athletes had started their training with their respective
trainers during their PE period and special training sessions.

ISA's Pride
Last month, another honor was brought to the school by Lara Hudak, a Grade 5 - Shakespeare
learner and her brother, Robert Hudak, a Grade 3 - Beethoven learner.
After their victory barely a month ago in Mandaue City, they joined the Regional Karatedo
Championship held in Robinsons Place, Bacolod City last October 22. Lara won two gold medals in
both Kata (showmanship) and sparring categories, while Robert won gold medal in showmanship
and silver in sparring. This tournament was participated by different teams from Bacolod, Boracay
and Iloilo. This only proves that ISAers do not only excel in academics, they are formidable athletes
as well.
