ABAC CORDERO of the Philippine Star fell short of his record but still retained his men’s title in the second edition of the PSA Shooting Championships-Sen. Chiz Escudero Cup at the Armscor Shooting Range at the Makati Cinema Square.
Cordero wasn't able to match his perfect score of 100 during last year’s inaugural staging of the shootfest for members and officials of the country’s oldest media organization. But he still got the job done, nonetheless, when he scored 99 points and beat out the Inquirer’s Musong Castillo (95) and Elech Dawa of Remate (94).
Virgie Romano dethroned Kristel Satumbaga of Bulletin/Tempo in the distaff side, finishing with 76 points to beat Jasmine Payo of the Inquirer (66) and Satumbaga (65) in the event backed by the Philippine Basketball Association, myPhone, Adidas Action 3 and Harbour Centre.
Prior to the event, all PSA members attended the 30-minute refresher course conducted by Sen. Escudero himself, with assistance from officials of Armscor. The event was also supported by Philippine Sports Commission chairman Richie Garcia, the Basketball Efficiency and Scientific Training Center of former national coach Nic Jorge and the Philippine Olympic Committee.
