La Salle men's football squad
ready for NOPSSCEA season

The University of St. La Salle remains a force to reckon with in collegiate football in the province.

When the NOPSSCEA Season 36 opens this September, the team will start their title retention bid under their new mentor, former national team head coach and campaigner Norman Fegidero Jr..

Fegidero was tapped to take over the USLS men's football team after multi-awarded head coach Freddie “Nene” Lazarito retired this year after more than 30 years of mentoring the St. La Salle team.

Women referees in PBA

Women referees are expected to work the games in the PBA Governors' Cup which begins on July 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Edith Boticario and Janine Nicandro will be a common sight in the league's season ending tournament after PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa approved the inclusion of the two officials in the roll of referees that will work the import-laced conference.

“We believe in the ability of women and we want them to play a more active role in the league. I think having women referees in our games will be good for the league long term. Gone are the days when the game of basketball was confined to just the men,” Narvasa said.

Arum insists Pacquiao
to fight again this year

Filipino boxing star Manny Pacquiao plans to come out of retirement to fight, his promoter said yesterday, though the boxer said no fight has yet been set.

Bob Arum told American sports broadcaster ESPN that the former welterweight champion plans to fight on either October 29 or November 5 as a main event bout in Las Vegas as long as it doesn't clash with his senate duties in the Philippines. No opponent has been named thus far.

"Manny wants to come back," Arum said. "The problem is he can only come back if it doesn't interfere with his senate duties."
